To The Dump......

Someone stole my Buick and put a dumpster in its place. I can keep it for the whole month.  I hope I am through with it  sooner than that but I guess we will have to see what happens.  I have my construction mess that was all outside on my porch now inside of the container.  I need to clear out the basement too so the box will come in handy.

It is a smooth clear sky that we see this morning.  It is cold but will warm up a little bit during the day.  I can see the results of the earth's tilt as the sun will soon be seen behind that pine tree. I don't think we will see any buds for another month.  Leaves will cover the whole scene by early April into May. That means summer will be on its way.

I shared this photo on my other  blog but I thought I should repost it here. The nook was a sink and cupboard area.  I removed it all and it left a neat reading area or office area for someone to fill.  I have a light to install and we have a couple of coats of paint to apply.  Buying paint can be a challenge when you buy a stock color and then they run out of the stock color.  I won't say much more about that. No matter how old I get, I can't keep ahead of complications that happen. The solution for this project would have been us becoming contractors and hiring drywall experts, painting experts, ceiling experts and flooring specialist.  That being a pipe dream we will get the job done.

My smaller sansevieria  is still overcrowded. I like the green color as is is very healthy in its crowded state.

I am going to downsize some of my plants when we move.  I have windows for them but a lot of them are  not going to move.  If I can find homes for them that will be great. I do have a very large cactus that won't move because of two grandsons that will visit us.  It is planted in a stoneware container that I do want to keep.

On to the jobs of the day which will include spending the day in the basement.  I know that I can find things that need to go into that dumpster and other things that need to be packed. I hope everyone is doing well today.  Thanks for stopping by today.

I think almost any of us could easily fill up a dumpster! Glad you are making progress and I am sorry about the paint not being in stock. I know many lucky folks will enjoy receiving some of your plants that you don't wish to move.

I can tell in your sky photo how cold it must be. We have had light rain today. All the best wish packing, renovating and tossing!
