|My daffodils are withering so I've brought most of them inside.|
It is in the mid-80s outside! We have had 80 visit in March once in awhile but it never brought its' luggage and remained as it has this year.
Midwest weather can be quite unpredictable. There is snow in Stephanie's wedding picture above (a picture of a picture) but it had been 80 degrees just a few days before and it snowed on her March wedding day... made for tricky travel but lovely Tolkien-ish pictures.
Knowing I will hear a few "I told you so's"... I've been nursing a pulled muscle in my back. It was not from lawn and garden work, however. It occurred when I moved one of the vintage picnic baskets full of magazines. I should have known better. No gardening today!
I had to be out and about early this morning, having the first of two tests at the hospital. On the way home, hubby and I stopped by our favorite garden nursery to purchase kale, spinach, and cabbage plants. I also bought two packages of nasturtium seeds to try growing them this year.
I'm hoping the 80s leave soon so my cool weather crop has a chance to grow in... cool weather. Although my kale has been weathering warm temperatures nicely in past years. The nursery has a huge sign up by the tomato and pepper plants, reminding people one should never plant them until after we could have a frost... which in normal years is around Mother's Day.
For all who asked, I really am fine (unless either test shows up something we are not expecting). I'm beginning to adjust to the increase in insulin. It's ironic that I need more insulin due to rising blood sugar numbers but the increase brings about low blood sugar symptoms. Go figure...
I will be able to share on Thursday all the information about the new ministry project I was invited to participate in. But not until Thursday... ;)
