99 Baskets. . .
99 baskets of clothes on the floor, 99 baskets of clothes, pick one up, toss it in, come back and find your 16 month old has completely emptied an entire basket of kleenex on the floor where you left her??? And when you ask, "Who did that???" She puts on that innocent look, cocks her head and puts both hands upwards as to say "Don't know!" Oh, what kind of day will that turn out to be?? We decided to get out and take a long stroll around our "track" here at the farm. What a beautiful sunny, not windy day. Oh the things we saw this morning. We found bunnies, and a monarch, and lots of birds. I haven't had time to scout the newcomers yet this spring. But they are all around. We saw a cardinal, swallows, a flock of mourning doves, grackles, robins, sparrows, 2 mockingbirds (one of my personal favorites--sorry papa Rog--I do love those!), and the scissortails. We heard a wren, but I couldn't ever really see it. The lilac bushes are loaded with buds, some of the old fashioned irises are budding, the orange honeysuckle is about to burst into bloom (one flower has just opened) the creeping phlox is gorgeous, the tulips are blooming, the new apple trees have leaves on them and IT IS FINALLY SPRING. Welp, it sounds like little C is "out" for her nap, so must get busy on my yard work--and the house now goes to total pot! The laundry?.. . . Will be done soon. May not get folded but will be dry anyway. Can't wait to stroll thru Lowes tomorrow on my way home from my class to see what kind of action they have going on! Be blessed!
