It was over 70 today!!!!! YAY. Had windows open listening to birds, spring peepers and the sound of the train in the distance. My favorite part of warm weather. Spent part of the afternoon going around checking on the solar lights to see which ones need new batteries and which ones need to be replaced. So far it looks like the damage wasn't too bad.
Well it appears that this winter killed off the bees that have been living in the wall of the house for about the last 5 or 6 years. No activity at all. I am glad and sad at the same time. With all the problems of declining bee populations, I hated to see another colony lost. I will have to see if I can get my neighbor up on a ladder and plug up the holes the bees used to get under the siding to prevent some other bees from starting another colony. Morwenna
, I only watched a tiny bit of Fargo before switching channels. Just wanted to see Mr. Freeman and hear how he did with a Minnesota accent. I had forgotten what the original movie was like. I wasn't able to watch it all the way through either.
Went to see Captain America and the Winter Soldier
on Saturday. I enjoyed it and the fact that the Winter Soldier was a swoonable hottie (despite being a tortured and brainwashed, psychotic, amnesiac assassin) didn't hurt either
. Where has this man been???? Had a little more car crashes and shootouts than necessary but the story line was really good, especially when it got into the debate about the tradeoffs we are willing to make between freedom and security. I expect to see the Winter Soldier with his own movie or at least on equal footing with Captain America in future films.....(yes he is redeemed by the end of the movie and really stole the movie IMO). Up next for me is X-Men next month....and then The Hobbit in December. Such riches!!!!Vana
, sending you some hugs and good thoughts that you get the Home Depot job.
With the warm weather the cats have really been enjoying snoozing out on the back porch and hunting down any patch of sunlight. Happy likes to lay out on the front porch in the sun as well. I spent a little time sitting out on the porch swing and let the breeze blow away all the winter cobwebs out of my head. When I went over the Margaret's Saturday night to watch DOS, her husband told me they had lost all the fish in their pond over the winter and they must have had close to 100 fish in there...its a very big pond. I was hoping to replace mine from their stock but I guess I will have to look elsewhere. This means a trip to Wedel's in Kazoo.
Getting late here. Carol had come over and we watched some Doctor Who and probably watched more than we should have. It was almost 11:00 when she left. She and her husband Joe were working outside all day today and she was glad for the chance to relax and have a cup of coffee.
Good night, sleep sweet!
