Today is a total yo-yo weather wise. The sun and blue skies of the afternoon took temperatures up to +13C.... and now it has dropped to -13C . I hate when the pretty white snow begins to get all dirty and misshapen.... .melting in some spots and not others.
The dracena left in a pot still looks not too bad.. this is the pot that had the huge 14 inch high topping resembling an ice cream cone.
The big piles on the sides of roadways are filthy from the water and dirt splashed up by passing vehicles... the main roads are bare and wet..and loaded with gravel and sand. A huge windshield hazard...not to mention the chips and dings on the front of a car.
hey, greenery already... hahhaha..yeh...as if.
It's just the old grass that was under a foot of snow two days ago... and guess what I'll be doing for at least two days in the spring? Raking those stupid mini fir cones from the good ol' neighbour's dirty trees.... Waaaaay too many to whack back over his fence with my clubs.... I'd tire myself out in no time. Raking or running over them with the mower is a much better option.
I've been throwing snow from the patio area onto poor"cupid" perched on his birdie bath shell. It probably isn't really cupid, but that's what I call 'im. Anyway, the snow is about 4 feet deep there...but..it, too, has diminished considerably....
I so wanted to get a start on a project of some sort today, but as usual, it didn't happen. Errands, exercise and baking muffins got in the way. It is obviously going to be a test of my ingenuity to juggle all the daily happenings and still get back to doing some artsy craftsy "stuff" ... I seem to have forgotten how to do it. And, if I can't manage to get all the balls in the air at the same time I'll never get around to any of it will I?
