Spring?

It is the first of January, 2 weeks into WINTER, and we are the only part of the whole continent(with the exception of Mexico) that is having balmy weather! It is gray and drippy, but it is 50-60 F. We are expecting High winds, which is not so unusual for us, but the balmy weather sure is. We had about 3 weeks of cold freezing weather in November, but no snow! The rest of the country however has had it and then some! We were out trimming the low branches off of the crab apple tree, and the dogwood tree, and they are absolutely LOADED with buds! We may just have another fruit filled summer. Either that or the frost and wind will hit in April just as they are blooming, and kill all the fruit as they are born! Last year we had so much that one of the plum trees actually broke in two parts. Several branches broke on the peach trees. Year before last, NO FRUIT at all! I would kinda like it to meet in the middle. Not so much that I feel it is being wasted if I dont put it all up, but enough so that I can have fresh fruit! I guess I am just not ever happy huh? ;)

Bob just came over and handed me my mail. In the middle of the mail was an envelope with no writing on it. ?? in the envelope was a birthday card with 400.00 in it! WHOOT!! He is buying my swim pass for this year! I told him it was only 309. and he grabbed back 100.00. Now if it is in an envelope and you get it as a gift, shouldn't it ALL be yours? LOLOL He is also loaning me the money to get my brakes fixed. So I am a truly happy girl today! OLD, but Happy!

Funny, I just dont feel like I am 64! The body says I am, but the mind says I am about 20-25! Am I regressing? Maybe I am just a young soul! ANyway. I am off to finish some work for the Playhouse, and then to Swim for 2 hours. (I hope the Lap Nazi isn't there today!)

Belated Happy Birthday!

I'll add my birthday greetings to the others. I know what you mean about not feeling my age- until I've done something like going on a long bike ride. Then I do know that I am no longer 25.

We sure have had a mild winter which I am enjoying. I have not had to take a single day off work due to not being able to drive on bad roads.

Happy Birthday Mary Lou.
