Happiness in a sunbeam... A bit ridiculous, really. Lancelot was enjoying himself waaaay too much.
Spring Peepers are out. Heard them for the first time yesterday, driving home from fencing. Out in force today at the nursery. Plants are coming in, we're opening this weekend. Still kinda disorganized, but it'll be mostly mulch that moves anyway. TIRED, though, from the warm weather and sudden 'ack! we've got to get things organized!' flurry of activity. There are things I must dooooo before spring really gets here!
Looks like most of my plants made it through the winter just fine. The Oakleaf Hydrangea in the terrace was what I was really worried about, and there are plenty of green stems, just waiting for leaves. So. Happy! Iris are coming up with new leaves, Sedum has woken up and is budding, and from the looks of what I pulled up this evening, I'll have plenty of volunteer Nasturtium from seeds dropped last fall... My potato starts should be arriving in a week and a half or so too, very excited to try them!
The bad bits: Ticks. In the backyard for all of 5 minutes on Sunday, picked 2 deer tick off of my jeans and shoes. Ick ick ick.
Washed the car! I have a RED car! Who knew? My poor, dear car... hopefully she'll make it another winter (and then another summer, since winter is the hard part)... New rear brakes yesterday, not cheap, but I certainly got my money's worth out of the original set. Almost 180,000 miles. I'd say we're doing OK. Timing belt is due soon... hnnggghhh... :\
kurlon has shiny new glasses now. He's amazed at the world in HD. I guess they've been a while in coming. We picked them out last Monday, and I think he's glad to be seeing things again.
ninian_vesalius and I are headed to New Jersey and MUDTHAW this Friday night. Getting there laaaaate (or earrrrrly, depending on point of view). Glad things don't really get going till 11:30. Aiming to be onsite by 11. Lots and lots of fencing, I hope! Can't wait to see everybody and play OUTSIDE!
