February Thaw

We are in the middle of a February thaw it seems. One could hear water running and dripping all day. The snow is nearly melted off and things are pretty muddy. There isn't much flooding in our area but there are places that I'm sure have rising water. I just got the fire going again in the woodstove - it had burned itself pretty much out but it is getting cool again tonight and we will need it.

Not much has been happening around here. Dipstick was out pretty much all day at a boy scout event - he seemed to have a good time but is pretty tired tonight. Squirrel is fighting a cold so he stayed home all day. Stretch and I went this afternoon in B's "big truck" to pick up something from the old house and a crate from a friend. I also went to town to get litter for my chickens and birdseed. I've been getting 10+ eggs a day - even with the chickens cooped up. I'm looking forward to being able to let them out in a fenced area.

Guess that's enough boring rambling...I haven't taken as much time to come up with interesting things to write recently...nor have I taken many pictures recently. I have decided however that as far as pictures go...a tripod is a very useful tool to have.

It is your everyday life i love to hear about, Edith. It may be boring to you, but to me, living a world away, it is a window into a life of a friend! I am so glad your thaw is beginning. I wish ours would too. More snow due today and tomorrow.

I will email you your questions later today!

We are having a thaw here too. We are suppose to get freezing rain with it though which isn't good.

Hi Edith, I haven't got your email address, so here are your questions! Just imagine you are on the couch, relax and let's get going with the questions then......

1. You were born in Africa, I know, so can you tell us about what you remember most about the time you live there? Have you ever been back?

2. Where and how did you meet your husband?

3. What games do you remember playing as a child? Did you play similar games with your kids?

4. What wdo you prefer, summer or winter?

5. What would you like to have achieved in 10 years time?

I hope you enjoy answerign these questions!

Lots of love
