Poppy is a big big fan of Amazon. Amazon is wonderful! I mean, anything you could possibly need or want is available through Amazon.
A few nights ago, Poppy was using our old yard stick that hangs on a nail just inside the pantry door to measure the width of the TV cabinet. The yard stick broke. Yep, several inches broke right off the end. Actually, the yard stick had broken several years ago and had been glued together. At one time, yard sticks were free...given by hardware stores as advertisements. Anyhow, Poppy went straight to Amazon. Dern, he said. I can get a yard stick delivered to our front door for five dollars, free shipping. Oh really, I said, and thought no more about it.
Yesterday the mailman backed into the driveway and unloaded a box way to big to fit in our mail box up at the highway. Gosh, what could this be! I left the big box standing on the porch leaning against the wall. It sure didn't weigh much.
What's this, asked Poppy when he got home from work.
Seriously! We laughed.
You know friends, I've had this worried feeling all along, that spring, in all it's glory, had arrived here way too soon. Looks like that feeling turned out to be right.
Remember that hickory tree that towers high above the goat lot...covered in tender bright green leaves...this one...
Well, Tuesday night the temperature dropped to 31 degrees and it must have been mighty cold way up there.
because here's that hickory tree now...leaves black and curled...makes me sad,
and the little fig tree that I moved from the garden to the south side of the house...well it had big green leaves and tiny figs a few days ago, and now...
Sure hope these plants will come back this year. Even the azaleas and iris have turned brown, and the leaves on the Rose of Sharon look as though they were frozen and thawed. It's very sad, but not much we can do about mother nature. Even colder temperatures are predicted for Saturday night...28 degrees.
Have not heard anything from the MRI, but I see the orthopedic specialist again April 13th. Guess I will find out all then. I am getting better and I am so thankful for that.
Thank you friends.
