As for me, I cleaned up this part of the yard that has not been touched since we moved here. We think the previous people kept critters in here as it is all fenced in with sturdy hog wire. I tidied it and we hope to use it as a pen for Teddy when we have visitors. The second photo is the debris I pulled up! It really was a bit of a mess.
Almost as big as SPRING is our school here. Speaking of schools, congratulations to THS's Freshmen who won the charity drive for 2010!!!! That was an amazing amount of monies all the classes raised! $63,269 goes to Doernbecher Children's Hospital this year and the rest of the funds goes to scholarships and such. THS also won in the Cowapa League and WMHS won in their league!!! http://wmhs.athwest.k12.or.us/ I am not sure exactly how to imbed links, but this is where you can go to see a pipes band video. Jon is in the VERY back with his baritone.
And SPRING! Crocus are all over the place! I have quite a few and then I found these teeny tiny purple ones. I have seen yellow ones around town, too! Very sweet. I also have these tiny white flowers that I cannot remember what they are blooming. I am going to look and see if I wrote it down anywhere. The tag is broken in half...right under where the name of the plant is! I even saw a robin today on our back fence!
And last, but not least, today is JaLeen's Bday (she is 5) and Jacit's is on Sunday, I think, (and she'll be 21). The pink cake is supposed to have chocolate chips in it..they sank and the chocolate frosting is way too much. Steve says it will really help tone the strawberry down on the cake and Jon tried a bit and said it was not too bad at all! (he was a tad skeptical of having a pink cake!) I was going to send it to JaLeen for her bday (the mix), but didn't get that far yet. So, made a cake for her and her sis instead! So Happy Birthday to my nieces!!!!
Am almost done with my Anne books and will read Farewell, My Subaru (recommended by Kym) next. Jon LOVED it! Also will get out some of my Brian Jacques books.
