Tuesday was really bad, with torrential rain,
blustery winds and later thick fog.
That kind of weather always makes me lazy.
The best thing to do seems to cuddle on the couch, reading.
Even walking the dog in the rain is not a task looking forward to.
Molly doesn't seem to bother. Sniffing around is more important
than a "few" raindrops.
Wednesday turned out much better.
The afternoon was downright warm 50 °F (10°C),
and I spent quite a while outside in the sunshine.
Lots of old leafs had to be removed.
See what was underneath:
A new generation of chives is about to wake up!
I like them, not for eating, but mostly
because of their pretty pink flowers in late fall/early summer.
|Some of my crocus survived as well.|
A few birds are also back from their winter retreat.
Same ones as last year (I guess), they look so alike,
when they visited the feeder I soon as I put it up.
Nice to have you back, my little friends!

Later I had to stack the woodpile anew,
it had toppled into a puddle of melting water -UHG!
It took me at least 2 hours.
Some of the driest wood pieces were moved into the basement.
Did I manage managed to break a bone in the process?
Sure, I dropped a chunk of wood and it happened to hit one of my little toes.
OUCH! That hurt.
Looks purple now, but is no major problem, I am able to limp around.
That's all from the "battle field" for today!
