Wow—don’t you just love spring?? Well, I guess it’s suppose to be spring but we have gotten up to the ground covered with snow several mornings lately and it sounds like tomorrow will be another one of those mornings.
I finally decided that I might as well get some spring house cleaning done. When the weather does warm up we are really going to have to work outside to “catch up” on all the things we haven’t done this winter. I really did clean, three closets including the linen closet. Good Will got a lot of really good stuff that I am tired of trying to find a place for. The other thing I got done was my scrapbook room. I think I gave away almost as much as I kept. Where does it all come from—oh, I know it’s those darn coupons that I can’t resist using. Now if I just had time to sit down and scrapbook that would be nice. If you could see all the scrapbooks I’ve done you would wonder where in the world all the pictures came from. I think I have always loved to take pictures and with the new digital cameras I take twenty times more than I used to. I’m hoping some day my kids and grandkids will look at those books and really enjoy seeing the things they did.
Daisy sends her “hello” to each of you. Such a silly dog and she is getting more and more spoiled. I know she is lonely now that she doesn’t have Kodi to play with. She has decided to be a completely “inside” dog. She won’t even go out when we leave so we leave her in the house and I’m not sure she moves all the time we are gone. She does think that I am her favorite toy and I seldom sit down that she doesn’t come snooping around to see if she can crawl on by lap or hide under my arm—mind you she only weighs 95 pounds. So I have a few bruises now and then.
We are going to try taking Daisy camping with us. That might prove to be interesting because more than loving to be in the house she hates going off the farm. I just can’t bring myself to leave her home even though we have a person come stay at the house and do chores. We’ll see how things work out, if it proves to be too much I’ll just bring her home. I love to walk when we are camping so it will be fun to have her to walk with.
Our girls’ and boys’ basketball teams both made it to state at Coos Bay this year. We had so much fun and watched a lot of basketball. The girls finished fifth which wasn’t too bad they got a really pretty trophy and are already talking about going again next year and placing higher (they have their sights set on first). Now we are patiently waiting for softball to officially start, might have to wait for some sunshine unless they play in their barn boots.
Have a wonderful spring, rain or shine there’s always something to do. Next time I talk to you I might even have a picture of a new calf.
