We are having some high clouds here today.  I have some pansies to plant and
some weeding to do here in the garden at work.  I'm trying to decide whether
to go camping for the weekend or stay home, it could rain or snow up on our
land (9100 ft)but I may go anyway.  The other option is to stay home and get
the other end of the garden ready for the tomatoes & peppers which are
growing pretty well in the basement under lights.  Spring is blooming here,
all the fruit trees and bulbs are making a spectacular show this year.  Have
a good weekend all.


Here it is the end of the work week and we're having a dreary, much to
cool day. The garden looks flat without some bright sunshine and the
tomatoes aren't growing much right now.

It's heavily overcast, threatening rain (which we still need), and
gloomy. Miz Anne is out working and Sleepy and I are just dragging
around the house. Doing a little laundry, vacuuming a floor here and
there, nothing in the garden at all. We're both getting cabin fever.

Tomorrow I go to Pasadena, TX to do a job for a good client and then
will go to sons home to visit for an hour or two and get some grandbaby
time in. Miz Anne will go with me but Sleepy is gonna have to stay at
home for the day. Since we'll be back in early afternoon it won't be too
bad for her but she always thinks she's been abandoned forever when we
both leave.

With any luck we'll get some sunshine this weekend and we can get out
into the gardens again. Hope all are having better days.
