We've had beautiful weather lately (in the low 80's) no rain, sleet, snow, not even any big winds, yet yesterday at 3:30 the lights went out! The power was off all around us. The power stayed off for 11 hours. we went out to eat but missed the Olympics, did get some reading done though by one of those lights on a headband that Terry had out in his truck. I've been away from places that the electric goes out often so I now need to remind myself to stock up on candles again. Don't know if Bugsy, the cat, liked it or not but she just wanted to sit on my lap all night.

Terry took me to the wild bird sanctuary today for Valentines Day. I haven't been out of the house for a long time except to do some shopping so it was really nice. I did have to use the wheelchair (which I haven't used in many months) because there was just too much walking for me. It was so much fun to see the different birds, squirrels, turtles. The hummingbirds had a ball playing in the trees and chasing each other. They would fly right by your head or sit in the tree on a branch so close you could almost touch them. Unfortuantly I didn't have my camera with us, it would have been fun to get a close up of the hummingbirds. Hope everyone had a nice Valentines Day.

It's been raining at least 3 day straight,every week, in the last 4 weeks so the ground is really soaked and thankfully soft enough for me to take my little hand shovel and make some hole for bulbs. It has been several years since I've been physically able to plant and I really miss my garden. There is nothing like home grown corn, red beets, green beans, etc.
