If it isn’t then it is a great preview of what is to come and I say bring it on. The day before yesterday was this.
Brandy and I walked around the house finding evidence of this in some of the extension gardens.
It was time to sit in the swing for a bit and think about what was next. I keep hoping that I had seen the last of the snow but this is Michigan and anything can happen. While I was out I found a problem with one of the downspouts.
I managed to put it back together but the collar has to be secured to fix it. One hard rain and it will be laying on the ground again. Checking the other areas I found them clear and all secure. When you have a wood basement good drainage is very important. ( I found that out the hard way.)
Then yesterday the shopping trip with Jay’s sisters was cancelled so I went alone. The weather called for a light jacket because the sun wasn’t shining and there was a bit of a wind.
I filled up the truck at Conlee’s Mobil in Otisville around noon and headed into Clio. There it was Dotty’s where I picked up seed for Spirit, seed for the outside birds, and a large bag of cat food for Molly.
From there I went to K Marts In search of a new can opener for Cindy. When I was down there on Tuesday I discovered she had an old one that had to be kept charged. When I went to use it it wasn’t so Cindy opened a can of tuna with one of those bottle openers with the vee shaped end. ( That was a trip but she finally got it open enough for us to scoop out the tuna.)
While at K Mart I picked up a bag of Fresh Step that was also on my list then it was on to Sam’s Club for some personal paper products, big boxes of breakfast cereal, canned dog food for Brandy, a jar of Soft and Chewy Milk bones also for her. For me it was Cream Cheese and a bag of Hershey’s Nuggets ( I love those little devils),
Then I jumped back on I 75 north to 475. next to I 69 and into M 15 in Davison, Mi. where I stopped at Leo’s and picked up a Mini Greek salad to go. I then crossed the street to Kroger’s and pick up an armload of Marie Callender’s dinners to fill the bottom of my freezer because they were on sale and I depend on them to accomplish a good supper without a lot of fuss. Finally I arrived back home around 5 pm and then had to unload all this stuff and put it away. ( I wish I had a magic wand to wave and everything would go in it’s place but no such luck.
When I got up this morning this greeted my eyes.
It is going to be another lovely day. I saw one Robin yesterday and two this morning making me think it has got to be Spring.
I hope you enjoy your day because I know I’m going to enjoy mine.
