What to muse about today?

on March 2, 2011

So it’s been a while since I’ve written about the weather, the yard, the house.  Well, with all the lovely warm weather we’ve been having, most of the snow has slowly melted away.  This is a very good thing.  We’ve only had a little water in the basement, mostly down the wall where the chimney is. 

All the snow is off the roof of the front of the house, and I’m sure it’s mostly gone from the back too.  There’s still some snow on the deck, but it doesn’t get that much sun.  We’ve only had a bit more water come through the kitchen ceiling, although the front corner now looks like it has some water damage.  Not bad though.  But something to look at this summer.  Not too much more seems to have come in through Teagan’s ceiling/ceiling fan.  A very good thing.

You can see most of the front lawn, except where the snow mounds from clearing the driveway, the sidewalk, are.  You can actually see over the tops of the snowbanks on the street.  It’s funny to drive down the road and see the toppled over mailboxes and the garbage that people had put out, but was buried with the two HUGE snowfalls that happened to be on garbage day.

Grass.  There’s grass out there!  And it’s greening up!

I actually saw the fish (that survived,) swimming in the pond today.  I counted four or five.  The white one and the dark spotted one were there.  At least two orange ones.  So nice to see them!

The yard  has been covered with robins for about a week.

I’m ready for it to be spring.

    Silly Facebook…

    My dad says you should contact your insurance (home oweners) company about the leaks to get it repaired immediately. It could be something as simple as replacing the flashing up near the connection of the fireplace.They pay for replacement of drywall and painting too once you file a claim. Good luck.
