Well, it's almost midnight and Momma's still up so that means I'm up. Four of the eight Grand-kids and my human sister came today...these are the kids who love to shoot me, which really works out for me since I get a treat with every death scene! The youngest, Abigail, loves to feed me, but then she always tries to eat one of my cookies and gets her feelings hurt that she can't have one with me. So Momma keeps gram-crackers to mend her little broken heart. So there we sit having our treats together! I really didn't think she should drink from my bowl, but hey, I guess she was thirsty!
This weekend, weather permitting, we will be outside working and getting ready for spring. Momma & Daddy took the truck over this week and had a new windshield put in and then came home and had the gravel guy bring in 20 yards of crushed rock. It's pretty, but it means a ton of heavy moving getting it everywhere they want it. It will take at least this weekend if not more to get it done.
Then we start putting up the first of two green houses. The small one will be kinda close to the house for herbs and tomatoes (maybe a rose or two)! Momma and I love to go out and have lunch at the cherry tomato bushes when the warm weather makes them sun kissed warm. YUM! We hope to get a larger garden in this year with lots of good veggies!
We also have to re-roof the back of the house and finish the siding, put up new gutters and try and get the yard to look like someone cares about it. I think it's fine, Momma does not think it looks ok. We get so few dry days around her it's hard to get everything done. We haven't had a spring in 3 years, folks would plant their gardens just to have the seeds rot cuz of all of the rain. Then they'd plant again. It's kind of a dice roll putting in a garden here. When the weather is good, it's beautiful, everything so nice and green, but putting up with all the rain is not fun. Well, we are hoping for the best and planning on putting in a garden. I don't care what they put in as long as it includes tomatoes and carrots! I love them both!
If there's no rain tomorrow Momma is going to mow the lawn (weeds & moss) for the first time this year! I'm glad she has a riding lawn mower since we have more than an acre just in grass. We still have to get the upper field cleared from having some huge trees next to the house taken down. That means burning the limbs and hot dogs done over the fire. The Grand-kids love to come and help (sometimes it just make more work, but that's OK, at least they're here).
I will be glad to see what Dogster comes up with for our community pages. My background and page is in bad need of a tune up! I hope they make it even better than it was before! Lots of pups seemed to have left, can't really blame them, we took a hard blow when we were told that they were closing us down. Dogster needs to remember that they broke our trust in them and they will have to find ways to rebuild that trust, which may not be too easy with some of the furs. Dogster really hurt our hearts. Wish they'd ask some of the furs to come along side of them and help in the process, but I'm sure that won't happen. It will just be good to see it be improved from where it is today!
Well, she's headed towards the bedroom so I better move that way.
Goodnight all you furs in Dogster Land, sleep well!
