A Really Gorgeous Day

Today is Wednesday, February 3, 2010. It was a gorgeous day! The sun was shinning and so very warm. Needless to say, I didn't get to much done in the house.

With the weather so nice I cleaned up the mess that the storm had left behind. I couldn't believe the size of some of the oak limbs that were down or just hanging there in the tree. The big oak in the front is naked, only the mistletoe is left behind. Its funny that today about half of the yard is green again. Last week is was all brown because of the cold. There is even some green on one of the stag horn fern. Keeping fingers crossed that more appears.

The turtle tote is all but finished. The button is in the oven now and it needs to be clipped. But it should be in the mail to a dear friend within the week. Yes, Autumn Turtle, this one is for you. It was made with six inch squares, has four pockets inside and one on the outside. Thinking a dream pillow made of the same fabric would be in order.

Young son will turn the big 14 on Saturday. So tomorrow I will head over to the GameStop to get an xBox or at least that's what I think it is. No, I am taking my daughter with me, she knows what it is that he wants. I am so out of the loop with all of the different game systems.

Talked to George tonight and he sounds worse today than he did yesterday. He said yesterday that he was feeling better and then today, not so good. I did convince him to go to bed early, at least he told me he was going to.

Laundry tomorrow while the weather is so nice, I so can't wait for summer to get here. Even had to add water to the pool today. I can't figure out how so much water leaves the pool while there is a cover on it. Shouldn't it work like a green house and just vapor to the cover and then land back into the pool? One of those questions that make you go, hmmmm.

Remember yesterday, dream about tomorrow, but live today. ~Brightest Blessings~

    I'm so sorry to hear that your hubby is still sick. I'll continue to wish him a speedy recovery!

    As for your son's birthday, I'm with you when it comes to all of the new game systems. .I never thought I'd see the day when I'd be so behind on what is out there in electronic land, but it all changes so fast, and if I'm not in need of it, then I don't bother to keep up. As for HIM liking it, I'm sure that this will be a birthday to remember! What a wonderful gift!!

    Take care, and enjoy your warm weather!
