Just sitting here into my second cup of coffee thinking of all that I would like to do today. The thinking list is way to much for my mind this morning, so I will just put it on paper and do one thing at a time. Beautiful spring morning. I love this time of year. We had a little rain last week, which was greatly needed. It looks like it could be a warm spring. Maybe I will cheat on a few things in the garden. I always do anyway. Never know unless you try. Some of the fruit trees are in full blossom. Seems a little early for that. They could get bit. One thing I do need to get started on, actually 2 things, summer kitchen and a quail house. Quail will be here first week in June. That will come up faster than I want. I would be interesting to know how many survived last year. We had a fairly open winter and not real cold. Some pheasant hunters told me that they saw more quail this year than they had for years. Maybe they are making a comeback. A neighbor a couple of miles north are going to raise some also. It is just nice to think we are making a difference. Not only that it is fun to do.
We have been dog-sitting for our daughter's two Yorkies. It is strange to have a couple of ankle-bitters around when we are used to Labs. They enjoy the country life. Our daughter has put her house on the market and is being shown a lot. They will not show the house if dogs are there. She cannot take off work and get the dogs all the time, hence we have them for a few days. They are not too much trouble. Kind of obnoxious at times, but they are supposed to be. That is the purpose of yip-yips. Just kidding. My problem is I am always afraid of stepping on one of them.
Just read from Duke that Stephen is hospitalized. Our thoughts and prayers go out yo him and his family for a quick recovery.
Into cup #3. Guess I know what I will be doing quite often for the rest of the morning! Speaking of which, it is already started. Guess I will end this here a get a start on the day.
