We have been having spectacular weather. Low humidity, and temperatures in the low 70's. With the full moon the last few nights, it's been great sitting out on the porch. You can hear the stream running just down slope, and the night birds, and that's it. Otherwise, it's dead quiet.
I've been working on the blog, trying to restore some of the things I either deleted or disabled. When I shut the blog down I deleted my blog list, to protect the people on it should unforeseen eventualities arise in the future. Now I am laboriously putting it back together. Blogger is not cooperating, giving me trouble with listing some of the non Google blogs but I will get it all put back together soon.
My wife and I are doing a through spring cleaning this year. Since she isn't teaching anymore, I have hauled two truckloads of old text books, teachers files, etc to the dump. Freed up a lot of space. So far, we have finished the pantry, her bedroom, and my bedroom. Still lots of spaces to go, but we are getting there. We have to be really, really careful because the ferrets delight in sneaking into trash bags and it would be easy to haul them off to the dump unannounced. The three "inside" cats are having a good time tearing the plastic trash bags with their claws, so that when I lift the bag it splits and all the junk falls out. We are dealing with this by putting small amounts in the bags. Easier on the two of us when it comes to lifting the bags, anyway.
I think I mentioned my son and daughter took a week off and came down to help out here at the place when I was not doing so well. We sent them back loaded down with cheese, ham, and some canned things. My daughter took some of my books. Mostly about "bugging out" so I told her to just keep them. I'm not displacing come the day but she and my son will have to. On the other hand, we had a disagreement about her taking some of my magazine collection. I keep those religiously , ordered and indexed. She said it was pointless to have them and not use them. I said I wasn't sure she would take care of them. She pointed out she had taken some of my rare books on the civil war up there, and got them back in good shape. In the end she got her way, as she always does. I have never been able to say no to my daughter and make it stick.
Not surprising, I suppose. I always wind up doing what her mother wants, The women in Southern families have always been the power behind the throne.
