Playing in the Sunshine!

Well, the sun is out this afternoon finally after an overcast, cold, and foggy morning. I got outside, and puttered around in the area by the back door. There is a little grassy area on either side of the stairs. It is just enough space to have a very small garden, and or flowers. The maintenance man took down the old dilapidated fence that was back there, and so it is really sunny there now. I don't know if they will replace the fence or not at this point. I hope they do to some extent, but having it opened up was nice for a change. There is a walkway that runs the length of the building, and we have wanderers come through there all the time.

It made me happy to clean up the dead stuff, and get ready for when it is warm enough to put some flowers, and veggies out. I find a nice breeze, and a little sunshine is a cure for what ails ya! I had the back door open, and a nice breeze was coming in...the kitchen window is stuck, so once that is open, then it will be nice to have the breeze as I am cooking dinner. :)

I think the difference with here, and living in Richmond is the lack of noise here. :) We are in the downtown core at the moment, but it is quiet for the most part.
We had a yard, and space to putter, and garden in Richmond, but I just didn't enjoy it because it was noisy, and loud from all the traffic.

I am really looking forward to being able to work our land once it is nice enough to do so. It is still pretty cool out.

Well, I am off to spend some time with my girl.
Hope you are having a lovely weekend!

Remembering Virginia Tech

We all unfortunately have another tragedy to add to our recent memories...far too many so far for a person my age. It is always hard to understand, or make sense of any tragedy or why 32 innocent people had to die yesterday on the Campus of Virginia Tech University. A list of people that included a holocaust survivor. It is very sad, and angers me that the world is not in a very nice state right now. It makes me second guess my decision that brought a life into this world. I only hope that her life will make a difference someday, and make the world a better place to live.

A bathroom with a view...the best seat in the house. :)

I find a nice cool breeze blowing lace curtains most relaxing, and refreshing.

What a beautiful day!

Well, what a beautiful day this has been. It warmed up to a nice 21C which converts to the 60's in F. This is quite a change from our -13C earlier in the week. We even have our windows open today. We took a drive this afternoon out on the back roads in the surrounding areas. It was a beautiful drive. We saw some deer, and a dead coyote. :)

Still lots of snow in places, but it is beginning to thaw. I took a few pictures, but not as many as I should have. I was on the look out for bears, as it is about time for them to be waking up. Spring comes late here, and we don't have any blooms yet. No pollen yet, but it will come soon enough. I wonder how I will react to the pollen during the Spring up in this part of the world.

It's warming up!

This Easter weekend is suppose to be fabulous. Highs in the 60's! :) This will be Molly's first Easter. We are not going to do anything special really. I am going to make her up a candy free basket of goodies, and dress her up...have to take lots of pictures for the family. :) Have a great weekend!

Now talk about being pampered, and spoiled...

Well, I was talking to an acquaintance on the phone today. I will say her name is Sally Sue. (names, and relation being kept anonymous for certain reasons) Sally Sue told me that she was talking to Norma Jean on the phone today. Norma Jean's daughter lives in California, and lives quite the pampered life if you ask me. She has two little boys under the age of 4. She orders her groceries online, has a housekeeper come in once a week, and has a nanny that comes in to help with the boys. Norma Jean's daughter claims she still needs more help, and despite her husband's complaints that she already has enough help, he has brought more help in. It must be nice, I must say. I would love to have someone come in, and help me sometime with Molly. In fact, I am looking to have someone just come in, and entertain her so I can get the house in some kind of order. We still have unpacked boxes, and stuff everywhere. Anyhow, I just had to write about how funny I find this. *shakes head in disbelief* Some people just don't have a clue, do they?
