We’ve been working on our garden this week. Our veggie garden is still under construction. I’m hoping to get it closer to done before a system of icky weather hits us next week. We’ll see. Our daffodils are starting to bloom. It’s early enough in the season that we are still doing a little dance every time we find a new bud or blossom. I image when we get to bloom # 976 we won’t be quite as excited. I recently took a tour of the area where the bulbs were dug from and discovered I wasn’t nearly as thorough as I thought I’d been. There are probably 500 bulbs that are still waiting to be moved to a safer location. Know anyone who wants some daffodils?
School is going well. The end of the year is quickly approaching. 27 days and counting. If we don’t take a family vacation this spring I’m estimating that we will finish around May 15th. As the weather is warming up and the garden is beckoning, that cut off day is looking sweeter and sweeter. Glad that we kept our noses to the grindstone all winter, so we could play in the spring. I don’t know whether to be amused or annoyed that all of our friends will still have another month of school after we are finished.
So Ms. Patty survived her encounter with our children. They apparently had a lovely time playing, reading and singing songs. A good time was had by all.
Oh, and our lovely cardinal friend from last year is back. Picking a fight with our sliding door again. I have pictures of him this year, but really I’m too lazy to get my camera and upload them. Earlier this week he was threatened not only by our door, but by my bedroom window as well. He made his displeasure with my window known early one morning this week, and I managed to confuse him by covering the inside of my window with wrapping paper. I’m still trying to decide if it’s worth the effort to cover the sliding door with paper or not.
