Wednesday Morning.

I got the new seed catalogue in the mail yesterday. Put it to one side as I didn't want to look at it. The reason being, I buy too many seeds, then in spring, end up with too many seedlings, have to put them out during the day and bring them in every night until temperatures warm up and end up getting fed up with it and I really have more than enough plants already. However, I couldn't resist temptation and the catalogue now has plant seeds I want, marked....sigh! What is it with us gardeners. I've heard it said that we are a mad lot. lol

Had a bit of wind overnight and on getting up, before lighting the fire, could feel a few drafts. But hey....just means the house can breath. Nice and cosy here now and I'm just taking a break from painting the kitchen ceiling. Hauled the ladder in last night so I could get an early start this morning. It's hard on the neck though.

I've put a tree with lights on the deck and it looks quite pretty. It was a mild day and as Roger was working on one of his staffs I decided it was a good time to haul the tree out of storage and get the job done. Other than that there's not a lot happening. I phoned a place in Gander to get someone to come and look at the oven and I have to wait until they get a few jobs to do out this way so it's worth their while to make the trip. So....could be a while yet.

I'm off to get at the painting again. I expect I'll be all aches and pains come tomorrow.

Get up sleepy head...."Yawn, must I."

"I really don't want to."

"Oh well, a wash is in order."

"Nah, I'm going back to sleep."

"Tut, tut, what's to be done with that lad?"

lol, I can so relate to the seedlings story. I too, hate to take them out, bring them in, take them out. And I always have waaay too many of them.
Love your cat pics. What a sweet life they have.

Know what you mean about too many seedings OC - it's when it comes to pricking them out that my eyes start to glaze over Lol!

Frustrating that you've still got to wait for your cooker repair though!!

and that's one cosy content cat you have there.

If I'd be real quit and would make myself really tiny do you think your lovely red tiger would let me snuggle up at him and we could have a cat nap together?

Flydragon and Tricia, I can see that I can turn to you both for sympathy re: the seeds and seedlings, lol.

lol Carin, He, Stanley, would be more than happy to cuddle with you. He's a real loveable sweetie.

D gives me "the look" when I talk about ordering things from seed catalogues and sarcastically says, "so where are you going to put them?" I meekly set the book aside as unfortunately ... he is right.

Cicero, I haven't seen that look...yet! Wouldn't do much good here as I wouldn't pay attention, ha, ha.

I plan to order a few seeds this spring. I don't have great luck with seeds and didn't get any last year. I remain optimistic and will try again.
