This week was the blah!


It was a dreary aching week here in NC...every day it rained and the weather played havoc on both of us...Cecil was as still as I've ever seen him..and I was just as bad (but as usual :o(....Arthur Ritis ...was a constant visitor ...didn't know when to leave ...took a lot of steam out of us...
Although it was bad for us , it was good for the trees, Do a close up for a good look at the blooms on the Pear tree on the left ...last year the one on the right bore the most fruit.. I guess they take turns.. I don't know it the bees had something to do with it or if it's just their nature...
Yesterday we also got another pleasant surprise...found that the greens on the side of the house had grown up quickly since last week and were turning to seed...Cecil and I With old arthritis picked a good pot full and I made some cornbread to go with them...I baked a chicken, but we ate so much greens and cornbread...the chicken got kind of skipped over..That's one time we wished the kids could have gotten some of those fresh greens..they were the best greens ever...(we might say that with every pot :o)....
Today the Sun is shining and that's a good thing..No special plans in the working..I got a couple of knitting rows in during the week...and that was a good thing too.
Stay tuned, something is bound to turn up around here. :o)

Ginny, I hope you and Cecil feel better soon. You need to tell that bothersome old Arthur that he' worn out his welcome! Take care, blessings,Kathleen

Your pear blossoms are gorgeous! You're way ahead of us, but we have that to look forward to in a couple of weeks. Daisy has a poem on her blog about a tree getting dressed in Easter finery. Remember Uncle Billy in the Mitford books talking about Ol Arthur who prevented him from doing things he used to be able to do? I'm sorry he's been at your house this week.

Nice to see you blogging. We're getting the nasty weather too.

Ladydi, Ole Uncle Billy knew what he was talking about..That Arthur doesn't know when to leave..he is worst than a jealous lover :o)hanging on all the time.

Deborah...we got a little Sun yesterday..and a smidgen today but not enough to brag about..Ginny

Ginny, I'm sorry to hear arthritis has gotten you and Cecil down. The rain has certainly made your trees pretty though. Hope you are feeling better soon.
