Sorry I disappeared for a few days there. I caught a terrible case of some sort of stomach bug but am finally feeling better. And just in time I might add! Sunshine has indeed returned to Hickery Holler, all be it briefly. By the end of the week they are predicting a return to 40 degree temperatures and a chance for possible snow showers. Have I mentioned that this weather is driving me crazy? But for today the sun is shining, the flowers are blooming, the birds are singing and all is well.
Monday is laundry day and I am taking advantage of the sunshine to hang some washed quilts in the sunshine. With a slight breeze they will dry quickly.
While we're at it let's throw open those doors and windows, turn them ceiling fans on and enjoy the fresh breeze.
The turkeys are again laying and we are starting to collect eggs for hatching. Maybe enough by this weekend to set our first clutch. These eggs are not washed and are turned every day prior to even being put in the incubator.
Even though winter is not giving up so easily we enjoy what breaks we get. With cold temperatures and rain almost every day last week the ground and gardens are saturated. There are also rain chances for most of this week starting tonight. After last years drought looks like mother nature is gonna give us all last years rainfall added to our normal rainfall. I have a feeling that when it finally does level off there will be little springlike weather and we will go directly into summer weather patterns.
How's your spring shaping up?
