Last week snowstorm, this week Thunderstorm?

      That's what the weatherman says! I didn't check to see if it's on the radar before writing this post, so I guess you'll find out next week! Just a few hours after I published the last post, it began to snow! I was so surprised! We got several inches, but it melted before lunch the next day. I hope we don't get the storms they are predicting! They could be severe! The temps have been very warm this week: mostly in the sixties. I think it got to seventy today! I've been outside working in the flower beds some. Poor Rubi dug holes and left debris everywhere! It's a mess, but it's getting better. 

      My seeds are germinating that I sowed after writing the last post. Not all of them have, but quite a few. I'm thankful to see them come up! I hope they all do. Do you have any idea why some don't? I think I'll throw the seed packs away that don't and buy more next year. Randy put up a small greenhouse that I'll put the plants in as soon as they're big enough. Sure hope it doesn't get blown away in the winds tonight! I don't like night-time thunderstorms! It's quite scary to wake up in the middle of the night to tornado sirens! We get up to see if it's coming this way so we'll know whether or not to duck and cover! Most of the time we don't have to get in our safe place. Hopefully, no one else will either!

      It's hard to believe the weekend is almost here! I've gotten a lot accomplished this week, but still, where did the week go? I'm hoping the girls (Goats) are in the process of becoming Mommas! I guess we won't know for sure for a couple of months! At least they are all getting along pretty good! I thought I would never get more eggs! Today there were five, but one was crushed. I'm so happy to get more eggs! I love them scrambled where a sausage patty was cooked! That's my favorite breakfast these days!

      Thanks for stopping by and reading. I always appreciate your time here and I especially appreciate your comments! Have a great weekend! Blessings from Bama!

What we looked out to the next morning!

A few of the girls braving the snow.

It seemed thicker this time.

Even the goats didn't seem to mind. I guess cause the temps were beginning to climb at this time.

The day I sowed our seeds.

The ciabata rolls I made. They were delicious made into a sandwich!

Our little Valentine baby!

Gonna rub some lotion on uncle Randy's feet!

Little cuties!

These three are such characters! Yasmine has lost another front tooth since this photo!

A Valentine's card for uncle Randy.

What the temps have been this week.

Cleaning out the flower bed.

Can you believe this mess?

Daffodils about to bloom! I saw some in bloom earlier this week, just a ways down the road.

I've been looking for a recipe for a good vegetable soup. I found it in this Weight Loss Magic Soup!

Winn and Riley were here today. The sun was shining brightly for a little while.

It's hard to catch her still.

The seedlings today.

Only a few here are sprouting.


  1. We had snow last week and this week we are wearing shorts. Welcome to Texas!

    1. Hi Jenn! Your weather there is similar to ours! Ya'll just get a little warmer than us, most of the time. Blessings!

  2. The weather here has been about the same. Freezing one minute and turning on the air the next. I hear we are supposed to get cold again but it is hard to believe when it is so warm out. I bought a small little greenhouse myself and can't wait for it to come in. I am so ready for spring!

    1. HI Becky! I know what you mean, but it is supposed to turn off cooler the middle of the week and not be as warm the next week. You'll love your green house! I can't wait to use mine! Blessings!

  3. Love your idea of identifying your seeds by toothpick and tape! I'm gonna try (again!) this try year to get ours started inside and want to get them going today or tomorrow and will most definitely be copying you! Is that one of the shirts your painted with the 'W' and the dolphin? Cute!!! Somehow I missed this post, so sorry I am late in commenting. Looks like you have been - are! - keeping nicely busy. Those girls are really growing up fast. Hope you have a wonderful week and are enjoying Spring weather over in your neck of the woods!

  4. Hi Lisa! Lol! That's the only thing I could find to fit inside the covered tray. Seems to be working, except the tape falls off sometimes. Hope your seeds germinate quickly! Yes, that's one of the shirts I made. It's a little big so she has gotten to wear it for awhile. Yes, busy but I like it that way! The girls are growing too fast! Thanks, the weather was beautiful here today! Blessings!

  5. Your seedlings look so cute with those little flags! Still too cold to do much here but sounds like you are starting the spring work. Hope your safe from those tornadoes. I sure do hate them. Nancy

    1. Hi Nancy! Thanks! We have gotten into Spring, except for today. It was only 42, which is cold for our neck of the woods! Thank God we didn't have any tornadoes! There were some close by here, not in our county, but our sirens never went off. I hate them too! Blessings!

  6. I have recently started a blog, the info you provide on this site has helped me greatly. Thanks for all of your time & work. Thunderstorm Sounds
