Friday, we had another 8 inches of snow. Most of the winter the sun comes up where that V is but as you can see it is moving more to the left and by the time summer comes, we cannot see the sun rise from our window. A sign of movement to spring yea!
This tangled ugly mess is about 9 geraniums plants. Last fall I had planned to just dump them, but someone told me to take all the dirt off the roots wrap them in newspaper and put them in a cool dark place. Then bring them out and plant them again in spring. I felt I had nothing to lose so I did it. I took a look today and low and behold they are sprouting! I took a couple and planted them. When I can make it out to the shed again, I will get the big pots and get the rest going so I can replant them outside when it warms up. Who knows it may work?
I bought some frozen hash browns for the first time ever and tried this. The secret I figured out is to thaw them out. and squeeze them out to make them as dry as possible and really, they were great!
I have been reading a lot of stuff online about not changing your sheets weekly. When husband had his bone marrow transplant, I had to change the bed daily. But I have always changed them weekly. The ick factor gets the best of me if I don't and really isn't it nice to slid into fresh clean sheets?
But that makes lots of laundry and everything has gone up. So, every few loads I throw the measuring cup in the washer with less soap. All the soap that was clinging to the cup comes off and no waste!
I saw an ad for a free sample from this company. Because they never asked for a credit card or asked for shipping, I ordered. I cannot wait to try them it all sounds so good and free is always good.
Speaking of free we got the covid tests we ordered from the government. It was late getting here but it is here now in case we need them which I hope we never do.
I bought some frozen French fries and there were so many little bits in the bag it was a complete waste of money. I contacted the company and gave them all the information from the bag and why I was not happy they sent me a coupon for another bag on them. I applaud them for their quick response to my issue and will try again.
I am still trying to bind my fish rug. My hands have become so dry and cracked it makes it hard to hand sew.
We have a farmer at the end of the dirt road I walk all the time. He sells eggs and we love supporting a local farm. Yes, it is a bit more, but the eggs are fresh, and we are buying from a neighbor a plus plus for us!
I am trying to get back to my walking routine. It has been so cold that I have not walked anywhere near as much. Today bright and early out I went. I tried to get a picture of the river, but the snow had covered the ice what a lovely sound it made gurgling under the ice.
And I cannot close without mentioning the horror that is happening in Ukraine. There is a writer and former police officer from Bangor Maine who became famous for funny posts about a duck of justice. He wrote an article about Ukraine and no it is not about politics it is about humanity. I am going to post the link as I think truly, he has said as best as anyone I have read. I hope you take the time to read it. And as he said no matter what you think of Elon Musk he made sure that Ukraine has the world wide web to get their message out. Maybe some other big money should step up and make a difference for these people.
