February Sixth...



We are watching Dune... Son1 is off with girlfriend... Son2 and son3 had pajama day playing video games... They have a three day weekend... Hubby and I went to Walmart for just a quick trip of a couple of items today... otherwise it has been a lazy day... It has been raining all day... I have a headache...


I have already been back to work a whole week since vacation... And I had to work 40hrs... Setting up the new spring shoe sets... Inventory is only three weeks away... Lots of Fall markdowns... All new signing setup to change out... and our ads have changed from Sundays to Fridays... I like it so much better... now I can get all the sale tables ready on Thursday and come in early on Friday to put up all the signs... So now Sunday I have a whole day with lots of floor coverage where I can stock the floor before the store opens and then catch up on opening the boxes and locating the stockroom... then I figure Monday, Tuesday will be stocking days and opening boxes... we'll see how soon before they change things again and mess up my plans....


Miss Holly is such a woman... meaning she is so mean, lol... she keeps attacking and biting lately... I just can't figure out what she is trying to tell me... she keeps going out but then wants back in cause it is cold and wet outside... she wants to be petted but then no... she just wants to sit on you for the body heat... she is totally addicted to the laser light... you just have to make the clicking noise with your tongue and she is looking everywhere for the light... right now she is asleep on the bed....


The bird feeder on the right is new... holds four pounds of birdseed... the birds love it...


They still love their old bird feeders too...


Last weekend hubby trimmed the branches from the lemon tree and harvested a ton of lemons... the neighbors benefit from the limbs that hang in their yard... we get two harvests a year, summer and winter... still lots of lemons on the tree and more limbs to trim but it was raining this weekend... We usually take a bunch to work and share... or make lots of lemonade... I want to make a lemon pie but have yet to find a recipe that uses whole lemons and not just a bit of juice...


I am loving the Google reader for reading blogs and have been keeping up... spending a bit too much time at facebook lately playing games though... I have lots of things around the house that need doing... and need to get back to writing in my own blog... I will be glad when the sun shines once again and these gray foggy hazy days of winter will be done... sucks out all my energy and makes me blah... should feel comfy cozy in the house but not so much... stress myself out with all the things not getting done...


The daffodils are blooming....


And the blossoms on the plum and pear tree with be opening any day now...


On Wednesday there were about twenty birds in the pear tree in the front yard that I had never seen before...


They had a yellow tint and a crest on their heads....


It was hard getting a picture of them because they would not sit still and kept fluttering from branch to branch... and they were very noisy, making a beeping chirping sound... when I walked out across the yard, they all flew away at once and did not come back...


The allysium came back and on the bottom of the picture one of the bulbs from last year came up... I planted many different bulbs in the backyard but can't remember what all now... I did have a map I drew somewhere in the kitchen...


Hubby had put pavers down under the bird feeders last September so the seeds wouldn't grow up everywhere... but then I remembered the other day that I had planted bulbs there too so had hubby quickly pull up the pavers and the bulbs were coming up under them... so it was just in time...


Only one week til Valentine's Day... need to make some Valentine cards tomorrow to get in the mail... and pay some bills... son2 needs to finish his Thank you cars from Christmas and his birthday... Son3 needs to get his Valentine cards ready for his school party for Wednesday... and memorize his 8x and read his library books... son2 has homework too... son1 has to work tomorrow... Only about a half hour of Dune left... wow I never made it through this movie before... I may actually see the whole thing... I still have a headache though... don't think I got enough sleep this week.... So I will be heading to bed soon....

Happy Journaling...

I'm finally off playing catch up on blogs. It was a rainy lazy day here too, but I spent it all catching up and am finally getting close.

Love the bird feeders and the lemons!

Have a great superbowl family day tomorrow!

I love all the bird feeders, I wish I could have some and know that our cats would leave the birds alone. =(

What a crop of lemons!

Hope the headache is gone and your feeling all better. Thank you for visiting me. =)

Hey there. Just letting you know I'm reading. What to do with all those lemons. lol. I'm thinking of lemon in my ice tea, lemon ice box pie. Lemon cake and lemon icing. I would gain weight if I was there. lol

Well, Have a great week and enjoy Valentines if I'm not poppin' back in my then. I've been spending too much time on FB too but I'm about to get tired of it. It's not as social and fun as it used to be.

It was so nice to see the signs of Spring there at your house. Everything is buried in snow here and no reminders of Spring at all.
