Thank you for your kind response to the post last week, about the crappy week I had.
Our little dog Peanut is doing pretty good except she had a really bad seizure about 4 am the other night. It scared me and left me feeling pretty helpless. Afterward, she went right back to sleep as though nothing had happened. I, however, was up for the rest of the night after that.
That Cat and Stanley Roo having a serious conversation about something.
A few weeks ago I ordered some exterior lights for the house. We have been anxiously awaiting their arrival. They came in on Friday and Mr. Cottage put them up right away.
They are barn style lights, shiny red to match the roof.
We got two large, one for the front of the house and the other to go over the cellar door.
Mr. Cottage rigged up some scaffolding in order to reach above the cellar door, which is gonna be a pain in the you-know-what – whenever the light bulb has to be replaced.
The cellar door will be painted the same red as the roof eventually. Gonna be a big deal at our house tonight when we get to turn the lights on for the first time. Whoo Hoo! – Oh the simple pleasures in life.
I also ordered lights for the front porch and the back porches. Unfortunately, I think I ordered lights too small. The scale doesn’t seem right to me at all and it is driving me nuts. These are a custom order and can not be returned.
So I’ve been thinking about using them in another location.
See the light to the left of the door – seems way too small to me. What do you think?
Dottie has gone broody – she chose the same location to set, that Daisy picked in December. I think she has 6 eggs, not all of them are hers. The 21-day countdown begins.
Cooler weather with snow is on the way. I expect all of the fruit trees to be a loss, once again this year. Bummer.
I cut branches from the pear and peach trees as well as some forsythia, spirea, daffodils and Lenten rose. Darlene says they smell good! I’ll enjoy the blooms while the flakes are falling in the next few days.
Thank you for being here today.
