What is this ???

It rained all night and it was 45 degrees when I got up at 7 a.m. this morning.
Since that time it has thundered and hailed for about 30 minutes and the next time I looked it was snowing to beat the "band." And now it is 34 degrees.
This month several days have been Summer days (up in the 80's) Lots of 70's but, more 40's.

I have been under the weather and maybe the weather was causing it !!!
I am thankful I am not in Denver, Co. or where the flooding is on going.
Please come back Spring !

Inspired !

This morning when I read Renie's blog, I was inspired to write this event in my life.
My husband and I lived on the outskirts of Huntsville. We had 2 acreas, an Apple orchard and the best soil I have ever seen.
I had 5 or 6 flower beds and a beautiful veggie garden. I had a neighbor right by my veggie garden, his name was Mr. Groundhog. Everyday when I went out to look at my garden, Mr. Groundhog would stick his head out of his hole in the ground to see what I was doing.
So when I would go back in the house I watched him at the back door.
Out he would come and get a big tomato and sit right there in my garden and stand on his hind legs and eat that tomato.

Shortly after that I would bring out a low stool and sit a ways from where he was eating
and talk to him in a low gentle voice. I did this for 6 months getting closer each time, still talking to him, he would turn his head and look at me after I had been doing that for several months. One day I ventured right up to him and offered him the tomato that was in my hand.
He reaced out and took it from my hand !!!!!!! he did not run away but, sat there and ate it right by my side. I guess it doesn't take much to thrill me, but I was so thrilled I ran in the house and told my husband. He understood because he loves critters, too.
I have a picture of him eating on of my tomatoes. The next Spring I planted two more tomato plant just for him.

What's Happening ?

I don't know what is happening, I just spent 30 minutes posting a new blog and it just vanished !!

This was the first week of the new "Dancing with the Stars", do any of you watch that show ?
I don't know how to dance but, I love that show and the costumes.

Yesterday it was 79 degrees with a low of 66 the night before . Today when I woke up it was 24 and with maybe a high of 40. Tonight it is supposed to snow and rain which mean ice !!!
When Doris and I went to our Scrapbooking class yesterday we were dressed for Spring, this morning I am dressed for Winter !!!! Grrrr. It stormed last night and I lost my power for 4 hours.

I got my lovely necklace from Betsy and I just adore it. To day I got a gift from Loida, from 2L3bs. Thanks, Loida how did you know that was my favorite color ? Is the return address one I can send a card to you ?

I have to get to work soon on my grandson's graduation album.
I have been playing computer games, doing puzzles that I had already, reading and watching some TV.

Doris and I stopped at a Thrift Store yesterday and I bought 4 jigsaw puzzles for a dollar each and 4 books for a dollar. So I have plenty of things to play with while Winter lingers on and on.

Sorry, I have been so long updating my blog. I truly care for my blogger friends !!!!
