May 22nd.

Well, not only have I hurt my hip by trying to haul a huge bag of hens feed into the house but now I feel like I'm coming down with the flu that Roger brought back from Spain.

Went to the greenhouses on Saturday and bought another pile of annuals. So, here I go again covering them with a sheet at night taking it off in the morning. Every year I say I'm not going to buy them early but then get over anxious and end up doing the same thing again. We can get frost any night up til about the middle of June. On the way back we stopped at a friends place as I wanted to see their new dragon garden ornament. It's beautiful, wish I had taken a picture. I did take a couple of pigeons on one of their feeders.

Last year our orange and white cat "Thomas" died. We were heartbroken and have been talking about getting another Tommy for some time. A friend pointed me to the SPCA site in Clarenville saying there were two orange and white kittens looking for homes. There story was that they were thrown into a dog pound and someone saved them just in the nick of time. I phoned the SPCA inquiring about the two boys and said we would come to see them. We did! Well, we couldn't resist them so brought both home,lol. They have settled in as if they have lived here forever. Tearing though the house all morning chasing each other, knocking things over. It's a riot and so great having some babies in the house after so long. Woke up this morning with loud purring in my ear, one had himself tucked into my neck. Every now and then I hear Roger yell because one of them has either run up his back or playfully bitten him. No doubt it will be crazy for awhile.

Taking a rest after running riot all morning.
