Idyll #512: 33 and counting....
Forgot the Idyll # yesterday...I was so excited to be starting the thread that I forgot what I was doing!
Today's JJobs were washing two walls (so I won't feel like I should paint them) and cleaning the plantation shutters in the living room.
Oh and I also broke up the coating of ice on the driveway to be ready for tomorrow's freezing rain.....I keep telling myself that in June this will all be a dismal distant memory...
I think the houses across the street are having problems with water. When the ground is frozen but the temperature is mild, water has nowhere to go except between your foundation and the dirt. If there is anyplace for it to seep in, it will, as we found out last year. The town trucks have been here with measurements being taken. Great, dig up the street. Fix it over there and I hope none of it comes over here. Good ol' Canadian winter!
I find that my plants need to be watered every couple of days now, as the sun, when it shines, has that warmer quality to it that is a harbinger of Spring. The banana is going wild, the geraniums are blooming, the Mandevilla is putting out tiny little leaves: There is hope!
