Seems impossible that it was only a month or so ago that we were sealed in ice.
My days off have been so beautiful of late that
I can hardly believe my luck.
It is not that it is not raining... this is Oregon
in the spring after all... and rain it does.
I seem to have become lucky that way.
My yard is full of weeds.
Its the same each spring. Part of that renewal thing.
It has a bunch of dead grass that my father in law sprayed with chemicals.
This is my therapy.
Not the chemically altered grass removal.
Rather the weeding and planting of things that make my yard and home smell and look so nice.
Its the ability to create something of beauty that I can see and feel satisfied that I have done something of value that others can enjoy too.
We took down a fence in the front yard.
The posts are in great shape,
but the wood was old and had to go.
It was not a tall fence, only a 4 footer.
We decided not to replace the planks.
Instead Randy is making bird houses to go on each of the posts.
Then we will eventually put up hog wire sprayed green between the bird house posts.
Cheap but hopefully creative enough to bring some smiles.
Maybe I'll add some honeysuckle vines too.
Looks like I came inside to avoid the sprinkles
just in time.
The wind is picking up and making
the bent up windmill clank furiously.
Maybe getting it straightened back out should
be my project for tomorrow afternoon.
It is so nice to be back!
I've missed blogging and following you all.
I will try for 2 posts a week.
Thanks to those who have been checking up on me.
Big hugs to you all!
