My house is filled with the scent of lilacs.
A wonderful mild spring day ended week 4 of my time off. After all that cold and rain, at last, some sunshine !
Maybe we won't have to have the heat on anymore ? That would be great.
There was a mad frenzy of activity in the neighbourhood . The buzzing sound of lawnmowers, weed eaters, and trimmers, as long neglected gardens get a make over, including mine. I'm more of a quiet gardener. I use hand tools and I don't have a lawn. I dug it up and did a natural garden in the front and am slowly converting the back lawn as well. Today was just a matter of trimming back some vines and doing a bit of weeding. I even did up a couple of big pots of coleus for the veranda. That's a big improvement over last summer, when I didn't even want to go out there.
There was a discussion today on the postcard forum about the price of gas . It's $8.30 a gallon in Finland ! so we really shouldn't be complaining .
An article in the Star today about a new Wal Mart store in Markham that will be solar powered.
If Wal Mart is going green, it's only a matter of time before we all do.
No hole digging or sidewalk destruction going on today . I did see a very big dangerous looking saw parked on the side walk. They use it to cut away sections of side walk and then another machine removes the pieces. I still have no idea what's going on . The sidewalk doesn't even look like it needs replacing.
Ah ! I just lost an E bay auction and I'm actually glad. Had a fit of bidding fever and got carried away. Guess somebody else got even more carried away. They paid too much, Ha Ha.
Well considering I got up this morning feeling like a train wreck things aren't too bad right now.
I'm looking forward to some decent week end weather.
