Bunny One Bunny Fun

BUNNY TIME!!!! I love Bunny Time. Now that my youngest basset’s birthday is over, I can finally decorate for Easter. I absolutely love Easter decorations with their soft and cheery pastel colors that bring a bit of sunshine to your home after all the rain and clouds. Don’t get me wrong. I love the rain and clouds because that means the lakes will be full and camping will be awesome, so YAY clouds and rain. I gotta wonder though. Hubby has got to be catching on to me and my sneaky ways of bringing in new bunnies each year. He knows I sneak in pumpkins during Halloween, and new Christmas decorations every Christmas, so he must know about the bunnies. I won’t ask him. I like this little game we play. Although maybe he doesn’t know, because he is too distracted sneaking in something of his own. Maybe I should look around the house a bit.

Time For A Commercial Break

A few days of sunshine was all that was needed to encourage a few of the bulbs I planted last weekend, pop up. I saw their little green heads peeking through the soil yesterday and that gave me a real sense of satisfaction. Most of the garden looks like a huge dirt mound, so seeing a few plants coming up made up for all the back breaking work. My worry now is once I have the garden done, my brain will come up with another project. I think I have to give myself permission to take a break once in a while. And I will since I can’t tell which bulbs I have planted will come up or where exactly they are. I filled the section where the patio will go with the base material, and the last thing I need to do is fill the path with wood chips. The rest will be up to hubby to complete the patio and put up a few spotlights. I think this whole project might have made me a little insane. The whole time I was shoveling dirt and planting bulbs, I was imagining  myself as one of the guests on my favorite gardening show, Big Dreams, Small Spaces with Monty Don. I could hear the British narrator telling my pretend audience exactly what I was doing, and I had to stay on schedule since Monty Don was coming soon to see my progress. I will be honest. I looked forward to the commercial breaks. I just had to sit down and rest once in a while.

Just Another Wheelbarrow

When I am planning it in my head, it doesn’t sound so bad. When I am actually doing it, it is just awful. Once again I found myself shoveling stuff out of the back of my hubby’s truck. Today was class two rock and sand for the little patio we will have in the backyard. It wasn’t as hard as I thought it would be, but certainly not as soft and fluffy as the soil. It didn’t hit me how hard it was going to be until I climbed into the back of the truck bed. That is when all my bones and muscles decided to inform me that I had still not recovered from shoveling the two yards of soil last week. I don’t even get the comfort of knowing that this will be the last load I shovel, because after this will be all the wood chips for the path. I really don’t think these things through when I am getting ideas in my head. I do take some comfort in knowing that in the end it will be a great little garden, and I get a free pass from doing any sort of exercising!

Nina Grey wore two faces. One she showed to the world, but one she hid in the shadows.

The Two Faces of Nina Grey, Sharpsburg, Maryland 1861. It was in the winter of her eighteenth year that Nina
Grey’s destiny chose her. This is when she begins her story. Perhaps when it is all over, she will tell all, but for now it is far too dangerous. It would appear that a beautiful young girl would not be much of a threat to anyone, except to the hearts of foolish young men. Who would have guessed that hidden in her purse was a pistol, and tucked inside her corset were secret messages that were a matter of life and death.

Nina Grey had known her share of troubles, being orphaned as a young girl, but her life had been reasonably dull. When the War Between the States broke out, she never considered that the South’s rebellion would be her troubles. The state of Maryland was as neutral as rain, or so she thought.

However, when her brother joined the Confederate Army, the reality of a country divided by war fell upon her doorstep. Driven by her passion to help her brother, her innocence and charm made her the perfect candidate for the job.
