I wish Spring and Summer would get here. I am weary of the cold and having to stay shut up in the house. Stella doesn’t want to be outside either. Today is the last day of February. March sounds closer to Spring. I want to get puttering around in the gardens again. I’m pretty sure I can get some help this year from a few friends at work. I thought that we could make it a collective garden where we all share in the work and the food we grow. I will ask around over the next few weeks.
Stella has finally gotten up. I’ve been up about an hour already. I had hoped to get right into this and then my novel. But my mind seems to be everywhere but this morning. I can’t find anything that I want to focus on. Maybe I will bring out the sketch book and colored pencils. I haven’t picked up the Nikon in almost a week. It’s the same old dreary snow scenes out there. I’m tired of looking at it.
My orchid is looking sad. The bloom did not last very long this time. I don’t think it is getting enough attention. So I guess I need to step up my game. The rest of the plants are doing well. I am thinking I will have to get several new big pots this Spring for a few plants. That being said I have to make sure that it’s not all big pots come Fall. Not only will it be a pain to bring them all in but there will be no space for them in the house. If we get the greenhouse built that might be an option.
Sunday is Mom’s birthday. We still have no idea where we want to go. Our usual picks don’t open until 4pm or later and we both want to be home by that time. Firefly has gone up in prices for not much food. I might suggest Mackinaw Brewing Company. The food is good there and you get what you pay for. I’ll have to chat with her before then to figure things out. She might even bail at the last minute and have me just come out to the house. Which would be fine but I would like to get her out of the house for a bit.
Stella is in a tiny ball beneath her blanket behind me. Trying to sleep. She feels restless too. I just took a few photos to share. I couldn’t face outside so I took photos of some of my plants. And Stella. She wasn’t amused but she did lay her head back down so I could get my shot. On that note I will wrap this up. I hope everyone has a great day! Thanks for reading and stay safe!
