Catching UP...

Cheapest price we saw for gas yesterday.

This was on the road to Rocky Mount. We visited my husband's sister in the nursing home. She still has a long way to go, but we were very pleased with her improvments. This is about an hour's drive from our house.

I called last week to get a prescription renewed. The doctor insisted that I come in. Today I made that trip. Since I was there, he decided to go ahead and do a cancer skin screening. (All good... nothing suspicious)So by the time I got home my gas tank is now half full.

The weather has been beautiful this weekend. It was very windy today but warm. We actually saw 80's. Just a few minutes ago I heard it thunder and now we've had a quick heavy shower. It will be cooler tomorrow.

Gas is selling for $3.35.9 in our hometown. I suspect we need to be mindful of where we're going and how many other things we can get done on each trip.

Sure would have been nice if that doctor would have called in my prescription. It would have saved me gas money and a doctor's bill. I'm not complaining. I got a good report and don't have to go back until next year and he gave me three extra refills on the medicine. That last tube lasted me two years.

GOD is so good to me!!!

My eyes are burning...

And my nose is not happy... but for me... YES... ...
Spring is HERE!!...

Right Back At IT

The ancient fence has been replaced finally. I think my second post, all those years ago, I mentioned that ancient fence. I know I've posted lots of pictures of it with my irises blooming in front of it.

My husband worked hard building this fence. The ancient fence was put up in sections, bought that way from Lowes. Home Depot, near us, is selling out. We missed out on the fence sections, so my husband put this one up, one board at a time. I worry that he is doing too much too soon, but I can't stop him.

The little boy holding the umbrella in the above picture was given to me by my daughter at Christmas. I love it! I pulled out most of the irises and only put back a few. They will not bloom this year because I moved them at the wrong time. I have a big bed of irises in another place. So I still have plenty.

The bug holding the pot on this end was given to me by my daughter-in-law some years back. He's lost one eye but he's still cute.

It is not quite March 1st. That's when my husband told everyone he would be ready to get back to work. My backyard is back in business. Lots of people coming through this week. It was nice to have my yard to myself for the last few months..
