*The pond/swamp continues to bring so much entertainment. The last couple of weeks have seen the geese arriving back in droves. The really warm weather we had over the weekend allowed the pond to melt a bit, so the big frozen center part has a bit off water lying atop the ice. When the geese began their daily territorial battles this morning, there was quite a bit of slipping and sliding going on. So utterly comical.
*A purring kitty in my lap as I read.
*A pair of mallards showed up for the first time this year. :)
*My seeds from Baker Creek arrived today! Mostly old standbys like Bonny Best tomatoes and jalapenos, but also a few things we've never tried to grow before like broccoli and cauliflower as well. Trying to hold off until the end of March to get these babies started, but it's oh-so-hard. :P
*On a related note, the cabbage seeds Gray and I planted last week are taking off like gangbusters! (And the onions are beginning to sprout too.)
*Those rushes of love and gratitude that hit out-of-the-blue and seem to just fill you to overflowing. I had one a couple days ago when I caught a glimpse of Rich standing out by the swamp.
*Colors. Every last beautiful one of them.
*Big sweet puppy dog eyes that make you forget what a pill the beagle sporting those eyes has been. :P
*Heating pads, fuzzy socks, and hot tea.
