2017-02 – Having a bit of winter during our summer

[avatar] We’re having a bit of winter during this non-scheduled summer. πŸ™‚ We’re varying from the 80s to the teens and back again. It’s getting a bit old. lol

First things first. We’ve got a preliminary plan for the boxes.

So, uh, they closed school due to everyone being sick. Very strange! For almost a whole week. That’s insane! I’m so glad Bug is homeschooled now and we don’t get these “superbugs”. lol.

EEK! I need to build a bat house! I needs a bat house for my plantses. πŸ™‚

I got a bit carried away with the Pinterest thing. Ugh, they make these things addictive! https://www.pinterest.com/brandircox/

I’ve also dragged the family out to The Rural King to see all of the AWESOME stuff they have! They had chickens and pigs and rabbits and……..it’s my new favorite store! The first time we went they had a couple of chicken coops but now they have a new one that we like better! πŸ™‚ Hopefully in the next couple of weeks we can look into buying a coop! πŸ™‚

In the meantime……..This happened.

During this little “winter” we’re doing I’m using my time wisely to take up knitting, crocheting, and sewing. I did all of that nonsense when I was a kid but it helps keep me busy during panic attacks, etc.

Beautiful Blue Crocheted Scalloped Scarf

Knit School Spirit Scarf Red & Cream/White

So much more is being added when I sit down to take photos, etc. πŸ™‚

Bug is getting in on the knitting also!

I don’t have NEARLY enough yarn! But, it’s slowly becoming a respectable quantity. lol

As usual, my helper is running away from the camera.

The trees are blossoming….in February. And we wonder why people call it climate change. lol

Strangely enough our parsley still hasn’t died off and our chives are rebounding. Nothing except the pineapple sage really “died off” this year. lol
