easter

A whole new month…

by grace on April 4, 2021

It was so chilly on Thursday, with temps in the 40s and strong winds blowing. It’s continues to warm up and today it’s going to be in the 70s. The daffodils are blooming, as well as the hyacinth. Lots of positive changes here for April.

Meanwhile, way back in February, Sweetie was so very content, as well as beautiful, posing like a model…

Back on the first day of March Lovey bravely nestled into the repurposed laundry basket hideaway.

A few days later she jumped right up onto Kevin’s lap! She’s getting more and more tame but continues to be resistant to warming up to me.

On March March 11th the first crocuses bloomed. I love spring!

Lovey continuing to be bold and sit on Kevin’s lap. I think she’s only done this down in his workroom in the basement because that’s where she feels more protected.

On March 18th the winds were so strong that they blew mom’s old canoe down onto the rocks along the shore. You can just see Kevin dragging a kayak after retrieving the canoe, securing all the watercraft.

The lake level had dropped so far down, but by March 20th it was way up, yay for that.

The groundhog who live in our neighbor’s yard enjoyed the bird seed along with the two geese who have taken up residence here. The geese weren’t very excited to share, but the groundhog managed to get some food.

Unfortunately, the goose laid one egg and the next day it was gone. It then laid a second one and Kevin found fresh broken shells in the yard. I guess that’s why they said “silly as a goose,” because no matter how often Kevin told them to look for a safer spot to nest, they didn’t listen. Also, “bird brained” seems appropriate. There are always such huge families of geese in the spring that obviously some of them have figured out how to safely hatch a family. Maybe these are younger geese who haven’t learned, or maybe they’re developmentally disabled geese.

Last night a friend told me about her Easter plans, involving quiche and mimosas, and she asked about ours. I told her that we haven’t thought about it. Our plan for today is to launch the boat, a magnificent way to spend the day IMO.

I hope you’re doing well. Even though cases continue to surge again nationwide, at least it’s spring.

ok then,

Grace.
