Well. . .I told you I'd be back and that Spring would come. . .Right on both accounts. . .It took me almost two months to get things straightened out and have an available internet. . .We have so few options for our net needs at the farm that I tried to work with the phone company that I'd been with since 1973, thinking they would make it right. . .That was a mistake. . .I finally had enough and went with another company and couldn't be happier. . .So, everyone. . ."I'm back in business!". . .as they say. . .
We've had some rather cold Spring days. . .but when the sun shines and it's warmer. . .I like to be outdoors, whether working in flower gardens or resting with a good book. . .I decided I'd carve me out a little reading nook at the side of our Ste. Genevieve home just for that. . .I gathered brick from around that house. . .and. . .concrete pads from the Country Farm Home, along with a wooden planter left over from the fall. . .There was no expense at all, except. . .the little boy. . .Believe it or not, I walked into a thrift store at the same time I was working on my little hideaway. . .and there he was!!!!. . .$8. . .I couldn't imagine anyone discarding him. . He was perfect for my reading area. . . .
I do have an iron bench I'll be adding to the area for comfort. . .but this will do for now. . .I must admit, too, that sitting outside, admiring our backyard, I can sure daydream a lot about project possibilities. . .but that will be later. . .I'll have to work a little on John first. . .
So glad to be back visiting with all of you. . .
Hope you are enjoying this Spring weather, too. . .
