Another beautiful day. Every morning when I check out the back windows, more has come alive in the backyard. This morning, the wisteria has formed it's green buds, and the green and white ornamental grasses have sprung up. Birds are up the back part of the yard, pulling up worms. - Speaking of meals for birds, the sparrows have discovered the grass seed. Saw them scratching around out there yesterday. That's another thing to add to my "look for" list - a shallow metal or crockery dish that will inconspicuously sit in the cement bird bath (see avatar). That was here when we bought the house 48 years ago, love it, but it has always leaked. Want to find something that won't stick out like a sore thumb to sit in it, especially this year that there are so many sparrows nest building in the shrubs out there.
Up at 6:00, so my plan was to get dressed quickly, run up to S&S and do a little shopping before the ceiling guy came, since he said yesterday it won't be until 9:00-9:30. Hunger is always sitting right up front when I get up tho, and I know from past experience that when I shop before I eat - the carriage fills up. So, here I am, an hour later, having had coffee and raisin toast with cream cheese, but no way near ready to run out. Guess my early shopping expedition isn't going to happen.
Wondered where you were yesterday, Kargiver, glad it was a fun day and not because you were down with a headache.
SS, as usual, your anniversary card is one of the missing - looking for a funny one, but those are harder and harder to come by, that is, without being snipey or obnoxious. You know I wish you both well tho, and I'll check in with you tomorrow.
Now I really do have to get myself ready in case he decides to come at the 8:00 time that was planned before. Hope there's some activity on the boards today.
