We have a bull's eye on us

Good Morning everyone.   I hope that all of you have productive weekends and warmth to work in your gardens, and enjoy the coming spring.

I just wanted to thank everyone who emailed me or posted to see if I was feeling ok from the sinus junk I was fighting,  I am fine, it would help if we would just have better weather.  Cold then warm then back to cold.  Again, thank you for all of your thoughts.

Speaking of Spring, I don't think that it   is in the cards here.  The weather wizards around here posted winter storm watches, and advisories as of Thursday afternoon,  for Monday through Wed.  Generally when that is done, we have a bull's eye on us and blizzards in the make'in.

Personally I am tired of the cold and snow.  I know, I know, it is moisture for the plants, and gardens, BUT, Pleeeeeease.......
I am tired of it.  We are starting our general Spring season of a few days of nice then, BAM, snow, cold, blizzards, ice, thunderstorms, hail, a mixed bag of everything.  One time, we had thunderstorns and tornadoes then by the next morning, a blizzard with a foot of snow. I seem to  recall the blizzard of 49' which my folks said that it was the worst time they had ever endured or seen.  I have only seen photos of this from grandparents and my parents, it is mind boggling to say the least.

I put one of the Butterball turkey's I bought on sale in the oven to roast. I also put a small beef  roast on for a elderly couple for the week, I'm not supposed to do this, but they did not need anything else, so I've got my turkey and roast going on convection and it should be done soon, and I will drop this off while I am running errands.    If we are going to get snow and can't get out, I thought I'd better do a turkey for my folks and I to make dinners and sandwiches out of.  If I can't get out for a few days, my folks will have several days of dinners till I can get out and about.  So after lunch, I will run errands and drop of a plate of turkey to the folks, and make sure they have some grocery items to tie them over for a few days, and run my roast by for my cute little elderly couple, and I should be good to go.   I generally run errands either on Friday or Saturday, but I had to run yesterday and now today, so I am making my list and putting a little gas in the car, which I don't like to do, we are the highest price for gas in the state, which has always been like this since I can remember, it was like this when my folks were small here also.  Go figure.  I will be doing my in home cooking for my elderly folks as we see how the weather will behave.  I checked with all of them and they told me they would be fine, as most have extras that I make for them, so I think everyone is set and ready to go.

Really not too much in my little neck of the woods going on.  I am waiting for my berry bush canes to come.  I hope by then the weather will start to straighten up so I can finish freshening up the soil and checking the pH for my blueberries.  I hope that I did not bite off more than I can chew with this berry bucket grove project.  I am sorry that I do not have too much to show off in the garden area worth talking about.  Best laid plans of mice and men.......

Well, I'd better get off my butt and get ready to run soon and get everything done so I don't have to worry about anything, and it can dump what ever on us and get it out of its system, Sheeeh.......

I wish  everyone a productive and wonderful project filled weekend, or just enjoy your space and your garden, just think of me and send me warm thoughts as I wade through snow, lol
