            Here I am, counting the days till I can get moving outside again. Big case of cabin fever. There is quite a lot of ice in the driveway, so there I will spend some time this afternoon. Chopping. My houseplants are all fed, watered, and waiting for warmer days to take their summer places in the driveway. I include in this list several Geraniums that have gotten really large over the winter. Red, white, and pink. My Oxalis are starting to bloom as well. One fine day there will be several months of dog poop to scoop up and hide in the trash barrel as well. Butch doesn't pick up after himself. I guess that's the price one pays for unconditional companionship. I have to wonder if I am the only person that feels like after a long sedentary winter my pants seem a smidge tight..Thankfully, those extra lbs. will go as soon as I start to get outside. I have only seen one Cardinal this season, and no spring birds yet. They should be on their way, it's 45 degrees today and promises to be warmer all week. I have to top off my feeder. Seed is a little low. The stores will have their spring plants very soon, Joy Joy Joy!!!!
