well, the nice thing is- i got most of my seeds. the other nice thing is- i am a quarter done on the baby afghan i am making for my sister-in-law. the not so nice thing- colder than a witch's.....here. not that i didn't already know, but i bought the farmer's almanac to see when i could expect the last frost here in my region- end of april. this winter has been and will be about 2 degrees colder on average than normal with above average precipitation. well, so far, they have been right :)
summertime- supposed to be hotter and drier on average for most of us but the northwest around the rockies- hot and wet. go figure. must get a move on on the rain barrels. thought i would throw some life pics up- these are actually ones i took and not the generic googled fare ya'll usually receive from my keyboard :) it is currently about 18 degrees here in the endicott area and it is supposed to be single digits again. gonna get dumped on with more snow tomorrow night allegedly- but it's better than ice. the lap leeches have been snuggling to keep warm- and trust me- they like body heat. sigh.
my amaryllis is gone now but it did brighten up the first part of january like a big, strangely shaped candy cane- so i can't complain.
