It's around 43 degrees here and rainy. This just seems like a continuation of the endless winter. It's so strange. What I really don't like is being stuck inside when I could be out on the deck or gardening.

We finally broke out of that weather - it was 81F today and will be in the mid 80s for the coming days.

Some of my trees/bushes are just now showing those new leaves buds. This has never happened in the 20 years I've lived here. I though my magnolia and catalpa were dead - nope.

Default Bad dog!

I acme in to check and see if all you CDers were behaving (you weren't) and I heard this high pitched "screaming" - animal screaming.

I have a small dog that is part French Brittany and she is a real hunter - hence the previous owners named her Scout.

She had a baby bunny in her mouth. Bad dog! She doesn't hurt them - just scares the livin #@#$%^^ out of them. I made her drop the bunny and off it scampered (bet she told her friends ~ "You won't believe what happened to me!")

Maybe Scout needs a pet. Dogs are often enchanted by kittens and when the kitten grows up they become devoted friends.

I have another dog and had a cat until earlier this year. She's a born hunter - can catch many critters. She even came close to catching a squirrel right before it reached the tree. Has a phenomenal nose and checks out every inch of the yard each time she goes out and I can always tell when she smells that a critter has been there.

I'll let you know what's on the menu for my birthday dinner on Tuesday.

The house is nearly cleaned ... the parts the guests will see anyhow. Two last daunting tasks await ... the chandelier and the silver flatware.

Here's the dining room crystal chandelier - 15 branches, weights about 150 pounds, over 850 individual crystal beads and pendants ...

Lovely, Clark, I could look at pictures of your place all day.

Sunny and warmer today..........another quiet day in the country.
