We had a lovely little snowfall last week. Not too much, but enough to cover the muddy patches on the lawn. We have temps in the 40s today so the little we had is pretty much gone. But not to fear! By the middle of next week winter is predicted to return. Don't know how the chickens are going to feel about that. They refuse to come out of their little coop if there's too much snow on the ground. That reminds me, I need to show you all a picture of my rooster one of these days. He's getting scary big!!!
The Paperwhites I forced are beginning to bloom. Aren't they lovely?? Wish I I kept out some hyacinth bulbs when I planted last fall, but I will remember next time!! Soon there will be forced bulbs in all the stores, so I'll pick some up them. Nothings scents a room like a hyacinth!! Just lovely.
I did start a few seeds downstairs in my little greenhouse. I am studying up on successful seed starting so I hope I have good luck this year. A good website if you are interested in starting your own plants this year is: http://www.sunset.com/garden/backyard-projects/sowing-seeds-containers-00400000011752/ I went out this morning and bought 2 more grow lights too. I may be rushing things a bit, but what the heck else is there to do on a cold and blustery January day, but dream of summery things?
I did get the chance to get out to one of my new favorite stores...the VOA I found this cute tea a Donny Osmond AND a Partridge Family album! Woo Hoo! It did seem odd dancing around to Donny's prepubescent voice...I always think of him as "an older man". But what the hell. Like the song says, "I'm Your Puppet". LOL Anyway, it was a good haul. Nothing like spending less then $20 and come away feeling like a million! (I just love my record player! And I am having a blast finding record albums for 50cents or $1 that I would have killed to have back in the day!)
This is where I am right now. On the couch waiting for my Vikings to play. I have butterflies in my stomach this afternoon. It's been a long wait to have my boys in contention for the big game....and I have waited damn near 50 years to see them win it!! GO VIKES! GO Brett! Go Adrian!!!!
