Halleluiah! Spring is coming! When you see a daffodil bloom, you can’t help but feel cheered! Oh, how I miss the hundreds of blooms we used to have at our former country cottage. But we should finally have some new daffies greeting us later on this month at our new Grey Havens cottage. If you recall, this past November we planted some bulbs in the front flowerbeds. There are over a dozen stalks of green peeking through the mulch right now, and I am checking their progress each day. (Yeah, I’m compulsive like that!) We saw some old-fashioned ones blooming alongside a road last week and we let out with a whoop and a holler! It’s such a simple thing, but I do adore daffies!
Hubby already fertilized the lawn last month. We have some rain showers arriving this week, but our lawn contractor should be starting our small hardscape additions soon and extending out the lawn in the backyard. I need to remember to take “before” pictures in-between the raindrops this week!
I am hard at work with my temporary consulting job and telecommuting. It is frustrating at times, but I am soldiering on and getting the work done. And the first couple of paychecks have rolled in to help soften my annoyances! Half of me wishes that I was back to the carefree life of retirement, but the other half recognizes that the additional income is a blessing in these days and times of economic uncertainty. Alas, there isn’t much time for blogging except for the weekends!
I have some more grizzly bear pictures to share with you, though you are probably getting bored with them by now! Hahaha, deal with it! I have lots of other traveling photos that I may share this month if I can find the time to get processed through Photoshop.
I am completing tasks on my “to-do” list for this time of year. I got my annual boobie-check done last week and today I have my annual physical. Also, I prepared our 2010 tax return recently and discovered that we owe some mega-bucks as result of my temporary work stint last year. Boogers! So now I wait until the last minute in April to file and send in a humongous check to our ungrateful Federal government (who will promptly spend it on a $3.4 million underground turtle tunnel in Lake Jackson, Florida, or something else incredibly stupid).
