Taking things as they come.

I am so ready to be outside.
The weather, however, is not cooperating this week.
It's been extremely windy, and the nights still get below freezing.

Even on the colder days, with no sunshine, I hang clothes out on the line.
Bringing them in off the line is so refreshing!
The whites are brighter, and smell heavenly!

The Honeysuckle vine is leafing out, and I am getting some hanging baskets for the porch.  I have to bring the annuals in at night to keep them safe from the freezing temps.

The inside has faux flowers to give me the feeling of Spring when it's raining, windy, or just too cold to be outside.

The annuals are sooo ready to go outside, but would be destroyed if I put them in the ground.
I'm just waiting for Mother Nature to give me the go-ahead.
Being at home has been okay.  I don't go many places anyway.  I DO miss my girls and their families, terribly.  Hopefully, it won't be much longer before I can see them in person, instead of online. I am thankful for the technology, however. At least keeping in touch on the phone, and computer has been a blessing.
Things are starting to get better with the virus orders still in place....more businesses are opening, and we are able to buy the things that were not available before. 
I have been enjoying this time of being homebound in some ways....My baking skills are expanding, much like my waist, and size of clothing!!!  People are sharing new recipes for dinners, and desserts on social media. We've been trying some pretty yummy food!!
When warm weather finally gets here to stay...I can only hope that someone does not mistake me for a beached whale, and harpoon me as I lounge on the dock!!
