A Couple Thoughts for a Saturday Night

Posted on

I have a new source of frustration.  I can’t crank up the awning for my deck.  The doggone forearm feels like it is twisting and talk about some pain.  Ugh!  Oh well.  My SIL cranked it up for me.  I keep reminding myself that my Ortho PT said I ended uop using my left arm as my primary arm when it just plain wasn’t ready to be a primary arm while my right shoulder healed.  The plus up is my right shoulder gets better and better as time passes.  The downside is I am just so frustrated with my left arm being so weak and non-functional like it used to be.

The gummys and i had a lotta fun working with my indoor herb planters.  The dug up the chives and i helped them separate that balled up mess and they replanted all into a new clay pot.  We’ll see if it works out or not.  I can get a new chives starter from the nursery.  They also planted some sunflower seeds in some new mulch pellets. We worked in the garden beds outside afterwards and rode around on the lawn tractor.  We had lotsa sun and ended up with each of us having a bit of a sunburn.

I’m really loving this heat that we had today.  I’m a sun and warm weather kinda guy anywho and one that keeps asking why I moved to what Miss C refers to as “The Frozen Tundra”.  I don;’t think it really much maters anymore.  I’m here and Spring finally arrived.  It’s time to get busy outside.

Five for Good Friday

Posted on


It’s that time of week once again and “Yayayayayayaya” I know that I’m late with this.  Let’s see where we go today …

1. I had one hen Mallard with her beau who was gtoo busy keeping four other drakes away from his egg making machine.  It was kinda funny watching him try to cahse them off.

2. The gummys are here for the afternoon and the night.  I’ll make some Hackbraten, some spaetzle with gravy and a veggie for supper tomorrow night.

3. The weather warmed just in time for Easter.  That and there is no more of that icky bad, white “argh” on my yard.  I have snow out once again and before the 20th.  Ity’s also supposed to be sunny and warm this weekend.

4. One good thing about a Good Friday in central Minnesota is the number of people that I work with that take time off for the holy week.  It was nice and quiet all day with work. I got quite a bit done today.

5. It’s so funny listening to the gummys talk back and forth with each other while they’re playing Legos Jurassic Park on Play Station.

So there ya have it.  Feel free to comment and/or leave some choco Easter bunnies for me for Easter.  🙂
