Yesterday was a gorgeous day! It got up to 70 by afternoon. Late afternoon the sky started looking like a big bruise; it started thundering and pretty soon we had another soaking rain. The grass is green, leaves are coming out on the trees, AND THERE ARE TWO MALE HUMMERS NOW!!! Hopefully they get someone(s) to court! They will be pretty frustrated if they don't!
AND, we only have 4 more boards to replace on picnic tables but we are out of boards! We ended up replacing more boards on some tables than expected. Hopefully Dan and I can start working on the mowers today because it won't be long and we'll have to use them.
This coming Wednesday, I venture over to Manistique to see a podiatrist. His office is in Marquette, but he has office hours every couple of weeks in Manistique (which is a bit closer for me). I don't think this big toe thing is that fungus...I think I have a nail problem. At least I HOPE that is it (well, I THINK I hope that is it...). My daughter had an injury to her big toe several months ago and ended up having the toenail removed but a new one had already started growing in under that one before the removal. I haven't had an injury to my toe, but I was wearing some shoes last fall/winter that made the end of that toe feel terribly bruised.
The upcoming weather pattern looks stable as far as temps go, so Dan and I plan on bleaching the water lines to the campsites on Sunday. Hopefully the temps remain above freezing from here on out!
And I may "bite the bullet" and put my ground birdbath/fountain out earlier than normal this year. I've had one blue bird that has been coming to the plastic look like terra cotta bowl (sits outside the dining room window) and taking a bath at night. The finches and siskins sit on the sidelines watching till he gets done splashing around. I haven't been able to get a shot of it or you would have seen it too! I'm usually cooking supper when this occurs. I need to be standing closer to that window before he comes in and be ready with the camera.
Hope you all are having a great week! Enjoy this weather AND the rain (if you are getting any). It'll make the mushrooms pop up!
