Sunny Saturday

It was a beautiful sunny day here is western Washington today.  I think the temperature got up to almost 48 degrees.  I know I had a sweatshirt on under my jacket and got too warm when I was driving around town.  After my breakfast with Judy, I did a little grocery shopping and then came home and worked in the yard.  I got my roses pruned (finally) and picked up some of the debris in my front yard. Whenever the wind comes up it gets littered with branches, etc not only off my cedar tree but apparently trees nearby.  I even found some Douglas Fir branches out there and the only trees like that I have are in my back yard.

It is a little cloudy out there right now, so I'm sure more rain is on the way.  At least I feel like I accomplished a little in the yard this afternoon.

My handsome, sweet son stopped by this afternoon.  He was out looking at & test driving vehicles.  He feels all the financial stuff from his Thanksgiving Day accident will be settled by the end of this next week.  He's still driving my brothers truck and is anxious to get it back to him.  It's been a real blessing for him to be able to use his uncle's truck and he's decided that he's going to get a used mid-sized truck rather than a car.  I think that's a good thing...every guy needs a truck.

Well, I'm going to go fix some dinner and feed this little whinny flat faced cat. You'd think she hasn't had anything to eat for days. Have a good evening...Linda

We have very little snow left also, it was dark when I got home so I really couldn't see very well.  There is still a big mess from the branches.  Starting next thursday I have 8 days off, so maybe we will get a chance to clean up some.  Joni

Happy birthday!  It sounds as if you had quite a productive day.  I grow roses also.  I haven't pruned them yet; maybe in a couple of weeks.  I usually prune here (North Carolina) in February.--Sheria

Ahhhh...nothing nicer than a little work in the garden.  Always makes me feel good and productive, although, in truth I have no idea at all of what I am doing.  I just fumble away and it all comes up anyways and looks great!  Well at least to me it does...to the learned eye it's probably a big mess!  Oh well, it's MY mess, lol
Have a great Sunday!
