Good morning. I sure am tired this morning. I slept good last night so I don't know why. I could go back to bed no problem at all, if I didn't have any responsibilities that is. Mom will be yelling to get up soon.
It seems like its been a long time since I wrote, let me see if I can remember what I have done the last couple days. Well first my plants are doing good. Tomato and cucumber plants are doing wonderful now that I have moved them out of the mice's reach. By the way I think we may have gotten rid of all the mice. I still have mouse traps set up all over the laundry room just in case. I had planted a whole pack of lavender seeds and some had started to grow then they all died. I bought two more packs and started a few seeds from each pack in peat pots to see if they will grow. My husband thinks I have issues, like I am addicted to seeds. LOL! But I do think he is right. I can't go anywhere with out buying a couple more seeds. Yesterday we went to Lowe's to buy a couple blueberry plants (my husband wanted those) and I just had to stop at their seed display, that's where I got the two packs of lavender seeds and I bought a pack of wild flower seeds. I plan on planting those up by the rail trail. I got my seeds for this month from the seed guy the other day. I got Swiss Chard, Bush Beans, Peas, and Chervil. I now have several packs of green beans and peas, I can see a lot of canning in my future.
Last night when I opened the back door to feed the cat I smelled a wood fire. I had to go investigate. My sister/neighbor had a small campfire in her back yard. Like a moth to a flame, I couldn't stay away. The first campfire of the year. I love the smell of wood burning. I could have set there all night just looking into the flames and feeling its warmth but life's responsibilities pulled me away. That short few minutes that I was there looking at the flames I think did something in my brain. Like a switch was flipped. I feel more energized, like the darkness of winter has lifted. Spring has sprung in my brain. Plus seeing two almost open tulip buds in my flower bed didn't hurt either.
