When will Spring Arrive ?

Last week we had a windstorm.  I had so much work already to do in this neglected yard and now even more so. Me being me I am looking at the positive side.

Every time I took a dog out the wind managed to take out a tree or large limb. Our really old big central tree fell over onto my neighbors garage. The positive outlook. It did not do a lot of damage and me or the dog were not near it when it fell.

There was no snow when it fell. Because of the wind  it was dangerous to take pictures that day. When the tree guy came to cut it up it snowed.

Another time I took another dog out and would it figure a big tree limb fell onto my sons car. Now this car was my second car for just in case. Well while we were moving my son had a Nissan Rouge and he slide into a ditch and the insurance totaled out the Rouge. We had so much on our plate and he likes to research before he buys his vehicles so I said just use my emergency car while you research and take care of all that we had to do from moving. So the positive outlook of the large tree limb falling on my sons car is only  a couple dents in hood and corner panel . The windshield did not break. Me or the dog were not near it when it fell and my son had not purchased a new car for the limb to fall on.

It was a good and bad day.

The guy cutting up the tree is actually a teacher who teaches technology. He does this as  side work. The positive he was on school break that week so we did not have to wait to get the tree chopped up. I have some big ruts to fill from all the big equipment in my yard. The positive is I am a professional landscaper retired.

I went out and purchased a chainsaw because this is what I will be working on as soon as the warmer weather decides to make a apparence.

I am going to have a lot of firewood.   .

 

Midnight is happy about the large selection of sticks she has. You know I had to sneak in at least one dog picture lol.

My son came home one day and brought me two cactus plants. They are pretty and I realize  a lot of my houseplants are succulents. Because I had to get these little cactuses transplanted I went out and bought the special dirt for them and extra bags to put my other succulents in fresh soil and new pots.  Doing this while I am still not unpacked from the move or organized yet. That’s me and I will get it all done eventually. All are happy plants now. Picture is the first of the plants I transplanted.

I also managed to make some bread pudding for the first time . It came out really good.

What has been great about this move is I get to see my son everyday. He works alot and is gutting his apartment and redoing it and he still finds time to spend time with me. He gave me the already remodeled apartment. We like to cook together and most of this time I was on a restricted diet because of Pancreatitis. We were eating separate food and was not cooking together. Restrictions were lifted and we made 2 meals together so far Lasagna and Shepards pie.

 

There are a lot of birds here and I look forward to getting pictures and just watching them. Well time to get up and get busy!
