Okay, it’s not quite spring yet, but we had our first little taste of it.
All last week we were having cold weather and snow flurries. A bright spot was when this came in the mail on Wednesday…
Oh the anticipation!
Still, it was looking like gardening season was a long way off. I think the deer agree with me.
But on Friday it started to warm up. And in the space of a few days we went from this:
It’s truly amazing how quickly the snow disappears once the weather warms up.
I was feeling pretty crappy all last week. Exhausted, headachey, stiff neck and shoulders. I wasn’t quite sure what was causing what, but it was a long week. I got 10 hours of sleep on Saturday night though, and yesterday I finally felt better. I headed out and about to do some errands, and thoroughly enjoyed the warm day.
This morning I was wakened half an hour earlier than I wanted to be so that Husband could tell me that another neighborhood cat had managed to get itself trapped inside our fence.
The first time happened about 3(?) weeks ago, at 9:00 on a snowy Sunday night. I spent an hour crawling around the yard (the snow was seriously too deep to walk in, crawling was easier) trying to figure out how to get the cat out. I had visions of it being stuck in there still spring. I dug out the gate, but it was frozen shut. That time the cat finally got out by climbing the cherry tree.
This time, due to the warm days we’ve had, I was able to open the gate and set the poor critter free. Then I checked out the fence and found a spot where the fencing had come away from the fence pole and fixed it. Hopefully that will be the end of strange felines inside the fence.
Tomorrow the temperature is suppose to start dropping down again, but I think, just maybe, I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. Spring is coming.
