What a Day ........................

What a day to start April with .. this morning's sun was far from sunny .. cold gray threatening skies .. and it followed through with the "threat" part .. we were working in the cold wet stuff trying to get most of the nonsense off the deck for the deck guys who also threaten to actually begin the demolition tomorrow which is supposed to be warm and sunny and BEATIFUL ? Can that actually happen ? the weather be beautiful again AND they actually begin the deck work ? ... aaarrrrgggghhhh !!!

As I am trying to stick to .. the promise of Winthrop posing each first day of the month .. and I have to say, it has to get better and better right ? ...
Snow the first day of March but NOT the first day of April .. we are making headway ?

I realized I should have paid more attention to the actual position of Winthrop .. the pose is not quite the same .. but I think we got the idea .. haven't we ?

Happy April Fool's Day .. we all steered away from the trick part .. not a good idea with me in a grump slump ; )

Joy - here's a (hug) to get you out of your grump slump. Before you know it tomorrow WILL be a beautiful day!

Hope they show for you. Glad to see the lack of snow. We had rain mixed with snow today. Ugh.

No snow but still cold there. Amazing how things look in the winter!(-: Every year I say I am planting more evergreen plants. (I never do.) Then Spring comes and everything springs to life and it looks so pretty I forget all about winter! I want to buy some Japanese Forest Grass now. But I am not sure about growing it here in my climate.

Ha! Winthrop definitely looks happier, or at least more comfortable, today! Good luck with the weather and the deck guys tomorrow...

Hi there VP .. thank you girl ! you are sweet to me .. I hate being in a grump slump .. just heard from the contractor they hope to start tomorrow .. but there is an issue over the permit .. it may have to be a "new build" one after all .. I don't care .. I just want it DONE !
Can I come over and stay with you until they are done ?? LOL

Hello Gardeness .. yup ! fingers crossed it STARTS ! I thought we were going to get that mix too for a while .. it was COLD .. and so GRAY out there .. Spring is having a tough time getting her foot in the door !

Cindee .. girl you make me giggle every time ! .. yes !! I also go through that thing too .. more ever greens, so I can see something green ? during winter .. but then I forget too and it all gets steam rolled out the door ? haha .. I have a gold cultivar of the forest grass .. I want to add more since we have more shade in the back each year .. it might be OK for you .. give it a try or you will never know for sure !

Oh, Yuk! Us too Joy- rain and very dark skies all day! April showers bring May flowers...right? No snow is nice, however!

My dear...It's ok to be grumpy, you know we don't mind! It's the in between and not knowing when it will start and when it will end that gets in the way! I found it next to impossible to leave the house for fear they might show up! Leavr anyway and leave them your cell number! hang in there ((((YOU))))

Sounds a lot like Texas weather to me minus the snow.

GardenJoy4Me said...

Patsi .. it is true ... misery loves company girl ! LOL

Tessa ... you have a point girl ! that is for now ? We never know what is coming next here for a bit longer ; )

Gail .. you are so sweet .. thank you ! .. I refuse (so far) to have a cell phone (I know , I must be the only woman to do that ? LOL) Hubby has one for when he is on the road fishing, golfing etc .. but I never stray out of the city really .. so I just don't see the need .. and I can't for the life of me see why "TWITTER" !! LOL

Debbie girl .. I think it is a conspiracy right now .. YUCK weather every where .. but I think we have SUN today !!

Hi Joy, love that grump slump. I join you, even though our weather is quite a bit warmer. Sometimes the grump just has to slump! HA That is exciting about the deck finally getting done. I know you are past ready for it. Happy first of the month to Winthrop too. :-)

Hi Frances .. I think I am still in the slump since the contractor says there is this issue with the permit .. may have to be the new build one .. it is a beautiful day here and NO action happening with the deck .. why am I so gullible believing in contractors ?? LOL
Winthrop appreciates the nod !
