Ann, Jody, one thing that gardeners have in common, we love the smell of dirt!!!!! Nothin' on earth smells like that good ol' hunk o' dirt. And Ann, you can chime in any time you like, you know that, smiling.
Oh Jody, you lucky lucky gal....I pictured you out there doing the spring clean up. I can't get out there yet, I know the ground is still fairly frozen. We have the snow that is mostly gone now in the sunny spots, but down by the pool, man, still looks like a winter wonderland. I can't wait. We have had sun now for several days, the ground is thawing fast, but it is deceiving. At night it still goes below freezing, so the ground that has thawed gets the frost heaves. Oh brother. My heart is just not in the gardening mode this year. It will come I know, but I just am having a hard time with that get-up and go I have this time of the year.
Jody, you lost your Father? Did you make a post about this and I missed it? You have had a rough winter. Tell about Bruce and his hip, I didn't know that either, you must tell us these things that go on in your life. I know I like to hear and would love to give you moral support, should you ever need it, I am only a few keystrokes away, hee, hee, smiling and 8-) 8-) 8-). I don't doubt for a minute that you had A LOT of depression going on in your life, you just don't realize it. I have had a rough go with my Grandsons and their Mother and Father moving away (that was on Christmas day), I've been pretty ding dang depressed too. Getting through it though, it does sadden my heart, I miss my Grandsons so much :(. But, I must look on the positive side, I had the privilege of them living no more than 20 feet from my kitchen window for many years, think it was about 6 years, those were some pretty wonderful years and I am ever so grateful for that. I need a fix of them and my Daughters, guess I'll be going on a road trip soon, smiling..... 8-) 8-) :) :) :) they are only five hours away.
No Jody, haven't even began to think about any egg sales. Too premature as we just don't know where we will settle. I don't want to take too many birds on our move, I will build up my birds again. I need to find out what breed is the most winter-hardy. I do know for a fact that we will be in the land of deep freezing for months, eeks!!!
I love to hear your stories and antics with your critters at your place, keep writing little novels, they are cool and always such an interesting read. AND....you take me right there in my mind's eye, you have a wonderful story telling talent. Have a great, most wonderful day and life, and health. Cindi
