Weather has been miserable, damp and cold. It was suppose to be sunny today...just can't believe the weather reports. Overcast and chilly! I've not been doing much at all, just fed up. I have hauled some things out of the cabin to get rid of during clean up week. It's been going something like this:

Him: You're not throwing that chest of drawers out are you?
Me: Yep, it's going.
Him: But, but, we may use it sometime.
Me: It's been here for years and there's been no use for it, besides it has a hole in the back.
Him: If it's against a wall you won't see the hole.
Me: I don't want's going.

Him: What are you doing throwing out those lamps.
Me: They're junk, they're not fit to keep and the wires are all broken.
Him: But I can fix them.
Me: Why don't you go for a walk.

Him: Surely you're not getting rid of that bed spring.
Me: I think you'd better go somewhere and leave me to it.
Him: But we might use it sometime for a guest to sleep on.
Me: Who in the name of heavens would we put on this piece of crap.
Him: Well...someone maybe.

So he goes to a yard sale this morning and comes back with two pots that he bought. I asked where am I going to put these. But he says they're lovely....sigh! Think I'll go and beat my head against a brick wall.

We went to a nearby community yesterday as I was in bad need of wild bird seed. On the way back we saw two Loons sitting on the water. So lovely. No, didn't have the camera. I usually say to myself that there's no point in taking the camera as there's rarely anything to see. Will have to take it with me next time.

Other than that there's nothing new. Finches are still around along with the regulars. Perennials are coming up. I've planted bunching onions, spinach and chard in the new raised bed I made and planted sugar snap peas in another bed. Some warm weather should show some action there.

I know I've put on a lot of pictures of the Finches but thought this little guy looked so cute.

What a great shot of the Finch, he's lovely.

Men do tend to drive you wild, don't they? Send him on an errand without money while you clear the cabin, you might save your sanity that way. LOL!

Why don't you two have a yard sale? It will give him something to do, plus you might make some money to go buy more stuff! :D

lol Janine. I tried that a few years ago but there is so much work involved, then you have to depend on a good day, then you have to figure what to do with the stuff that didn't sell. The easiest thing to do is to put it by the road. If anyone wants any of it, they are welcome to take it.

Sounds to me like you might have a pack rat living in your house.....
Hmmmm do they make traps that big?

Have a great day.
