Winter is still here!

The temperature has steadily dropped all day long and the wind has been picking up as well. It's to get into the lower 20's tonight and the winds will gust up to 35 miles per hour. Tomorrow promises to bring even more cold air and tomorrow night it's supposed to get as low as 19*F. Scott and I were just talking today how so many flowers and trees have started to bloom and that we feared we would get more freezing temps that would knock some things back. I know that the peach farmers are worried about their trees; we are too, as we planned to buy a half bushel to make pickled peaches this year and with frost and freezes the price will sky rocket.
Yes  - Bernadette needs a "hair appointment"

Amelia is going gray just like "Mom"
Before it started to get too bad outside I started cleaning up our back yard after years of neglect. I was able to edge the side walk and mow the entire back yard. And I started cleaning up after the dogs - that is going to take some time as it has not been done in awhile and they have been busy in the "doodie" department. They both seemed quite happy that I was back there working on it "for them". Amelia always barks with excitement when the mower comes out of the shed. What a mess it is back there - I'm going to try to work a little on it each day after I get off work so that we can enjoy it more and perhaps have some people over for some cookouts this Summer.

With it looking like an extremely cold day tomorrow I think we will be puttering indoors. In the morning I will work on some beading work as it's the only time of day I can get enough Natural light inside to see. Over 40 really stinks in the eye sight department. 


  1. Your dogs are so CA-UTE...gotta love those four-legged bundles of love :) Have a great weekend. Love and hugs from the ocean shores of California, Heather :)

  2. I'm just catching up on posts and WOW, your outside cleaning and mowing your yard! I would just enjoy being able to open the windows and air out our house but it is much to cold yet for that...:(


Thanks for stopping by and for taking the time to comment on my post(s).
