Norm has had a bad couple of weeks but is feeling much better now.......although he still has laryngitis. Doctor said that he aspirated stomach acid into his bronchial tubes and lungs during a medical procedure. This is a new area for us and of all the things I'm alert to and making as sure as I can do to prevent, this, I didn't expect. Anyway, it never did get into anything like pneumonia, thankfully so I see the way all-clear ahead now.
Well, while the sun is still out and the day is balmy, I'm going back out to rustle around a little more in the garden..........Hope you're all enjoying...........

It looks like our drought is over here on the west coast.........we've had lots of rain with more promised. I read that another El Nino might be developing. I remember when we moved to Port Orford there was an El Nino to end all El Nino's! 1998, I think. A woman who lived in a cute little beach cottage with a nice slope down to the water's edge ended up with an abrupt cliff with logs outside her window being tossed up in the air like matchsticks. She was getting ready to have the house movers....like move the house not the furnishings, take her home out of harm's way. Then I guess the storms subsided. Just one of the reasons I never wanted to live right on the water. I liked a nice healthy buffer zone.
Norm and I continue to plan our garden. I haven't received in the mail yet the climbing roses, jasmine or clematis I've ordered and I'm getting impatient. Especially since I have some gardening magazines that are inspiring me. We planted some new lawn where the heavy equipment tore things up when we had our back yard and fence boosted up. In order to not encourage the birds in eating the lawn seed, we stopped putting out birdseed. Now we set up the hospitality wagon again and the juncos and finches are returning. I never see any squirrels or chipmunks, though. We have oaks around so I'd think that the little critters would be seen........course we do have a few kitties around.......That might explain things, huh? The Little Darlin's........
Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend. More rain coming tonight and tomorrow but here in the valley we're looking at sun later on in the week. So........everyone enjoy the hints of spring coming.
