It is still – on average – cold (in the upper 30’s or so).
However, this is the time of year I start thinking about having salads for meals and lots of fresh veggies. Since they have to be washed before use it occurred to me that I need a colander. (I gave the one I had to my son about a month ago. )
I had a collapsible one and thought he might like one so I gave him mine and now I need one. . I think they are a great space saver in that you can throw them in a drawer rather than have to figure out where or how you are going to store them in a cupboard.
Since I know that my husband reads this blog as well….I’m going to start using it as my ‘wish list’. 🙂 Maybe something will strike a chord with you as well.
To keep your veggies and milk fresh you can add a little colloidal silver to the wash water; and for milk add a few drops to the carton. (That is one reason the wealthy of ancient times really didn’t get that sick as a rule, their eating utensils were of silver. And to keep milk fresh they used to drop a silver dollar piece into it.)
For the past two days (48 hours plus), we had terrible winds! I sure would have hated to be a semi truck driver. They were just rocking and 2 went over here within the area…Fortunately no one was hurt.
Yogi gets all weirded out and for sure I did too yesterday. It sounded like a fast moving truck was coming right at you. So needless to say we didn’t have very long walkies.
Today it wasn’t too bad – cooler by about 20 degrees or so but the wind was very light. AND I saw my first robin today! 🙂 I figured that worms weren’t out yet, so while grocery shopping I picked up some mealy worms in a seed cake for the robins. (Yum! LOL)
As Yogi & I were on our morning walk I actually heard for certain the call of the sand hill cranes! There is some unique about the rusty underscore of their calls that identify them.
You can read more and hear their calls here:
A few pair of Canadian geese have occasionally flown over and I have been hearing a robin whistle for the past couple of weeks. Although I have yet to see one.
I think Spring just might be on its way….
