Yesterday I got a lot of gardening done, but it was sooo warm and I was sweating buckets. I had to go to the garden center, load 10 huge sacks of garden mulch in the car, then unload them again when I got home. And then put the mulch in the flower beds. I was pretty worn out last night, especially since my joints were already aching before I even started. But it sure looks great now!
Spring is unofficially here now. I base that on the nice weather of course (another day with temperatures up to 30 C today), but mainly on the increase in all the bird twitter. It is like a symphony of birds outside, all competing to be heard over each other! And I saw my first stork the other day, that is a sure sign of spring in our area...
Today I am trying to get the house cleaned, but it is hard since i keep gettitng work assignments on top of each other. I decided to defer the rest to Monday, so we will see if I can get some stuff around here done.
Tomorrow it is CAT day! Sarah and I are leaving at 8 AM to go to Auburndale to pick her up. We should be home just after lunch. We will see how things goes if we let the dogs see her today or not. Perhaps just a quick sniff and greet... I rather they get introduced slowly and steady than quick and crazy.
Next Friday Sarah is going to a Valentine's Day party at her Tae Kwon Do school, which works out pretty good since it is also my birthday, and Ken and I get 4 hours to go out and enjoy a nice dinner at my favorite Japanese restaurant. At the party the kids are having pizza and then they are going to the movie theater to see the film "Gnomeo an dJuliet". I am very happy I am don't have to see that one. Garden gnomes in a modern version of Romeo and Juliet? No thanks... :-)
