Here in my Georgia garden, we are finally receiving some nice weather. Well, Warm temperatures during the day hours anyway. It has been winter for some time and I knew that when I spotted the first Lady Bug on the bathroom ceiling! I am not sure where they come from but every winter we have these cute girls join us in the master bathroom. We believe they come through the attic vents and then make their way to the warmth of our bathroom through the exhaust vent. Which by the way we went to replace with a nice new sound free vent only to discover the existing vent is not piped through the roof like it should be! Argggg, shotty building or lack of codes 30 years ago when built? Who knows but for now, we no longer use the vent. When steam gets into woods of the upstairs, well, we would have one messy mold issue. Grrrrrrrr, on the builder that cut that corner and grrrr, for the inspector not doing his job 30 years ago......
So our day temps are nice enough to venture outside while the night temps are still falling into the 30's but luckily, not 32 where things will freeze. Cheetah is smart and makes a nice little bed by the fire in the living room. I am by her side in the recliner also enjoying the warmth but I am so not in the picture as I had such a rats nest on my head this evening. It had been another rainy day so inside we stayed where it was nice and dry and the hair never got touched by a comb just the ole fingers through it on this lazy day!
Okay, little girl, the fire is gone and it is time to crawl under the electric blanket now! I sure hope this round of 2 inch rain will not rot all my already soggy plants in the yard. Oh gee, the worries of a gardener.
Today, we plan to hand wash the car then again, by night fall we will be sitting by the warmth of a fire. Ho hum WARM DAYS, COLD NIGHTS, In the Garden....
