Looks like "spring " is going to be a short lived springboard into summer. My cousin (who lives in Wichita) said that they had 102 yesterday. It was only in high 80's here, even hotter tomorrow. Then maybe rain. Yikes. But at least there's no snow.
Been the same old routine around here with chiropractors and physical therapy and stuff. Only twice a week now and moving the chiro down to only once starting next week I think. Yay. I need to be home a little more. Today is my volunteer day down at the AA office, and before that I am going to pick up someone who's just out of detox and waiting to get into a rehab ad go to the noon meeting. I've arranged for another of the women I work with who is kinda new to meet us there and she will take her home and I will go the other direction to the office. That means that most of this day will be shot, lol. My floors are in dire need of vacuuming, the blueberries need weeding and fertilizing and the garden needs working. Oh well. I'd say there's always tomorrow, but tomorrow I am meeting up with a woman I grew up with for lunch. We were pregnant together and both had boys. I haven't seen her in about 37 years or more. Can't wait for that ! It will still keep me not getting much done around here. Oh well. There's always Thursday. lol
It's absolutely gorgeous outside this morning. My yard finally got mowed, mostly by the Irishman and partly by me. (Yes, that was a mistake). I could barely move afterwards, because of course, the riding mower wasn't working so I used the regular mower. I soaked in a tub of Epsom salts and baking soda that night. That helped some. That was Sunday, since Saturday we were gone most of the day. Speaking of Saturday, we went down to Cahokia Mounds to hear a Choctaw storyteller by the name of Tim Tingle from Oklahoma. He was there as a part of the 35th annual storytellers gathering hosted by the University of Missouri at St Louis. The Irishman stayed afterwards and hiked a bit and then went across the river to UMSL for the evening's grand finale. I came home and took care of critters, had dinner and watched a movie. Sunday morning we were up early and off to a meeting to see a young woman get her 1 year anniversary coin and then we had Chinese lunch and came home. It was Sunday that we got a little yard work done finally. Sigh...there's just so much to do...lol
Last evening after supper, we sat out on the front porch in the rocking chairs soaking in the beautiful weather. At least 2 Ruby Throated Hummingbirds were curious enough to come buzzing around, with the usual display of Cardinals and Titmouse, Junko and Wrens. The sparrows are building nests in a couple of the bird houses. Sunday I got the wisteria all chopped and the Rose of Sharon trimmed (I waited too late to really prune them--they were budding out leaves like crazy). So the yard is looking really nice for a minute. I love spring with all the different shades of greens...
We do seem to be having an explosion of ticks already this year. YUCK. You'd think that a harsh winter like we just had would help to control the populations of some of these bugs, but those and the big carpenter bees are EVERYWHERE.
Okay--a few things to do before I have to vacate the premises here. One of them is get dressed. lol The dogs and the chickens need their water bowls refilled. I have to pack some food to take with me for my snack and lunch while I'm out all day. (Yes, I started back on the Fast metabolism Diet yesterday. Finally.) Trying to get back in the habit of eating every 3-4 hours. And no caffeine and no sugar and no wheat. Sigh...
Happy Tuesday, everyone !!
