There was no gardening for us this weekend past because we traveled to Niagara Falls to spend the Mother's Day weekend with Jacob, Kristy, & Sophia to help Kristy celebrate her first as a bonafide mother.
Sophia had /has the croup but other than a husky cough and snot running out of her nose she didn't seem to notice. She changes everyday and although Kristy does a marvelous job of taking and emailing weekly photos, there is nothing like being up close and personal with the little munchkin. She is very aware of her surroundings and is much more interactive than even she was last Easter. She smiles easily and is a joy to behold.
The weather was more March like than what you'd expect for May. There were snow flurries Sunday morning when J. went to the donut dunkin shop for coffee and breakfast orders and the wind was so strong and gusty on Saturday that I had to buy suction cups for my shoes to keep from being carried air born.
The grass is long enough to warrant buying or renting a herd of goats. The grass keeps growing regardless of the weather. J. was hoping that a frost would slow it down or kill it off so all he'd have to do is hay it. Ah, the joys of home-ownership.
There's more to tell but as usual the clock moves faster than my typing and so I'll have to sign off so as to make my way to the new job in the same place. That's another story.............
