My first robin of this year landed in my backyard along with about 10 of his friends the other day. I was so excited to see him that I broke out into song. Now that isn't something you'd want to hear, but I was a happy gal. To me, the first robins say spring is on the way!
Excuse the quality of the bird shots today as I was
shooting through a dirty window.
Saturday is garage cleaning day. I had to postpone the cable/internet/phone change over because I just couldn't get into gear the last few days to get everything done before they invaded my house. The basement and most of the upstairs is clean except for the computer room. The wiring for the upstairs TV comes in through the garage and I doubt if the technician could even find the wire should he need to change it. I don't know how the garage gets so messy so quickly. For that matter, I don't know how my computer room gets so messy, either. At least I can't blame that one on my hubby! The stuff is all mine. Paperwork and stacks of books and magazines, luggage, you name it...it is kind of a catch-all.
I have to admit that I've been spending way too much time reading the news instead of working. The election news is both fascinating and annoying. Are you getting as tired of all the whining, fighting, and barking as I am? But I can't help it, I have to see what they say next. I tend to take with a grain of salt what the pundits say or write. It's plain to see that many of them have their favorites and don't even make an attempt to be impartial.
One thing I have to wonder, and I hope I don't offend anyone by saying this, is this group of people the best we can do? I'm talking about both sides of the aisle here. And just think...we have many
more months to go to listen to all this. Sigh.
My new glasses have been ordered and should be in this coming week. I found out that my right eye is worsened because of the beginnings of a cataract. He said that it will be a long while before it will cause problems enough to have to be removed. That was good to hear. I didn't even ask about contacts. I'm very nearsighted and have progressive lens and since it had been awhile since my last pair, I nearly fainted when they told me how much they were going to cost, but I figured it was worth it considering how long it had been since I had a new pair. I also ordered new prescription sunglasses.
We devoured the blueberry muffins and it's time to make something else. I've got some bananas that are turning dark and I should make banana bread, but I've got a couple of new recipes that I've jotted down to try. One is called Cream Scones and the other is Cinnamon Apple Muffins. Maybe I'll make both! Do you use sugar or a sugar substitute in your baked goods?
It's after midnight as I write this so I better wrap it up and hit the Publish button. Morning will be here soon enough and we need to get the garage cleaned out for starters. I also want to trim back some Knockout roses, too. We are supposed to have temps near 70 today so it will be a good day to work outside. BG also wants to get back to work on the electric wiring at The Project. We need to get that finished. So much to do, so little time. And energy. We'll get it all done eventually.
Enjoy your weekend!
