I propped two very sweet valentine's cards that arrived in the mailbox up on the fireplace mantle...and I dug through the many cards I had saved from Mom thru the years, and I put one on the Fridge...because it reminds me of how much she loved me. Do you keep cards given to you, and do you hope the ones you send are kept and cherished by someone you love?
I went back to the County Park, and found 2 Winter Wrens this time. They both chattered back exactly to the playback from my phone...Since I didn't get a sweet look before they disappeared into a thicket, I wanted to be sure it was Winter Wrens again...and it def was. I got an exciting shot of the rosy blush of the Red Bellied Woodpecker against a wonderful rare blue sky.
Spent the rest of the rain day organizing some of the Mom photos that I did not have in albums but were stored in bins...listened to my Seals and Croft LP's, watched cooking shows on TV, read your blogs, and worked on this post. The Pine Warblers are warbling loudly from under the Dogwood by the window in between rain showers, and I saw one American Crow carrying nesting material! Life continues.
It was a blue bird day as we say. The sky was as blue as, you guessed it, the blue bird. I hung around the homestead and worked on a project...My found item deck chairs needed a new coat of paint so I scraped and painted. I got 2 of the 3 pieces done..and I used the left over paint from Mom's Ramp. A squirrel has already taken a few bites of the chair! I had to remove the cushions after they destroyed one. Somewhere there is nest full of polyester fiber!
Gloomy! Awoke to grey bleak skies, answered email and was reminded of waking up on Saturdays as a child. That meant the day started with cartoons, and always a day outside playing and wandering. Days like that gave me butterflies. When was the last time anything gave you butterflies?
More gloom and rain! UGH>I had to run into town for bird seed! I got some onion sets for my garden pots, and checked out my already coming up Black Seeded Lettuce, and Spinach. Birds are happy! I am keeping these pots covered so the Squirrels won't get my baby greens.
Wow...lots of 2's. In 202 years plus 2 days it will be 02.22.2222 None of us will be here for that...:o/ More rain! Im getting cabin fever, and we may get a wintry mix around 9 pm, it won't accumulate here they say but it could be icy overnight on the roads. Rain Rain Go Away...The SC roads workers have 9 tons of salt..trust me they don't know how to use it, once they salted a road near us and they put it down so heavy it disintegrated the tarmac and it became a gravel/dirt road again! They repaved, but what a waste.
