Sunday, March 14th
We drove back from NC on Sunday. This is a picture of the flooding in the Kanawa River Valley in West Virginia. I think these folks are used to it, but it was pretty scary to me!
Monday I decided at the last minute to participate in Willow's Magpie Tales meme because the photo prompt reminded me of a poem I wrote in college. So that necessitated a dive into my old poetry journal. I really should transcribe all of these before the journal falls apart!
Dr. M got the mower out today to make sure it will crank. Hard to believe that we'll need to start mowing in the near future. I'm excited because I should be able to help a little more this year.
So I wore green for St. Patrick's Day, but did I get a photo of the green? No. It was late in the day & the only thing I could think about was eating pierogies for dinner. So that's what I took a picture of. Eating potatoes is Irish – right?
I wore my "tall girl shoes" on Thursday. My mom bought me these shoes years ago & I think they're the cutest things, but a) I don't really do very well in shoes with heels (Klutz, Party of 1 – that's me) and b) oh the pain in the balls of my feet after wearing them all day! So Thursday night I bagged them up to give them to my friend A. And I took pictures to commemorate them.
Signs of spring – the Good Humor ice cream truck, and The Bug finally pulling the penguin luminaries up.
Today I decided to roam about the yard looking for signs of new growth. Our spring shoots are more modest than the ones we saw in NC last week, but they're there!
