Early Morning Ramble

This weekend  I'm starting my seeds in their little cups and get as much as I can started.Then I got to figure out "where" to put everything. I have lots of pots and lots of room on the deck.I have 5 gallon buckets for the carrots already. And a trash can for the potatoes. This year it'll be green beans ,tomatoes,carrots,potatoes and herbs.Sounds good right?

Here in the south,the cold has been slipping away and now it feels more like spring. I can actually open the windows and doors to let some nice air in. Last year we bought these small screens to put up in the windows and they seem to work great. Those hords of frogs has moved over to the pond now and not under our bedroom window.Boy they were loud!

As I sit here this morning,clouds are coming in and we are in for some more rain.It's our rainy season here in March and April.I have to watch about planting anything outside because any seeds could rot.Allergies are taking a stab at us,hubstead and myself have gotten sinus problems but I figured it is the weather doing it.I am sleeping under a fan now just to be able to breathe.

This weekend I'm putting on a pot roast with carrots,potatoes and onions.We haven't had one in awhile and I get these cravings for certain foods.Pot roast is my favorite.In mine I add a couple cloves of garlic.Garlic adds alot of flavor to it.

Orion is itching to get out of the house and in the yard.I've been keeping him on his lead so he can wander about in the yard.I have no idea how he is going to react to the chickens once they get here.I think deep down I'll have to keep him away from the coop.He don't like things that flutter and make noise.Also I need to give him a bath,fleas are a nuisance here and also ticks get bad.This year will be a fight  again.But we are going to lime the yard to see if it helps.

I have a friend who sent me some feathers and I made a pair of earrings yesterday from them.
They're Guinea feathers

Other random pics.
Don't throw out those white milk cartons I made garden markers out of mine.

When that ice storm came thru.

We're fixing to get 70 degree weather,hope it stays like that for awhile.I'm itching myself to get in the yard and do some planting.No I don't have fleas and I do bathe hahaha! Yah! we finally got a hot water heater.Soon very soon we'll be able to take a proper bath and shower.Yep we have been without a water heater for over a year now and it's been rough.As soon as hubstead hooks it up and gets it going,I'm hitting the shower.You gotta do what you gotta do sometimes. I figure sooner or later,we 're going to have to replace alot of things in this house.This is the first of many.My microwave went out and the dishwasher is on the fritz.I guess they come in threes.We'll see what goes next,but oh well,everything here is old. The truck is running great after replacing the water pump and the tires are holding up.The yard is still muddy but not as much.We're getting rain probably tomorrow so the mud will be there again.We still have to park in the driveway near the road.

I don't about some people but have you ever had a diningroom table to get piled up with stuff? It seems mine stays that way.Of course we don't have alot of places to put things now.Yep one room is a pantry sort of and the other is a bedroom and the small room became an office.Our bedroom is starting to get filled up too.It's amazing how after not even two years here,we have collected so much stuff.My sister-in-law made a comment about that how the house is starting to look"lived in". I try to save and recycle anything worth saving.The kitchen,I have NO room at all.Everything is full. I like to cook as much as I can ,so I collect stuff to do just that.Spoons ,dishes whatever I can get my hands on.I'm looking at some cast iron skillets now.

Ok the rambling is over I think I covered just about everything going on.Have a Happy Tuesday!!!
