Project driven !!

Actually 3:00 PM as I prepare this blog to follow that earlier blog.  Sick–or not–I love to work on “my projects.”  Yesterday (after the appointment with the chiropractor), I stopped at Goodwill.  I bought the extra sturdy Christmas tree stand ($2.), another item for an eventual “air bottom,” and the red plastic box for another bright planter.  Recently, from Goodwill (for $2.), I bought the wrought-iron wall decoration designed to hold glass containers and voitive-type candles.  I wanted the wrought-iron item for a “trellis.”  (“Yes, a ‘trellis’.”)  In less than one hour I combined the two with hardware and wood that I already had.  When the weather breaks, I’ll plant Morning Glory seeds to climb on it.  ~~  Then I moved to an outdoor project: I added another “arm” to the Bluebird house upright wrought-iron pole.  With that accomplished, I removed the Shepherd’s Hook.  I don’t want a squirrel to make a flying leap from the Shepherd’s Hook–and by-pass the baffle–to steal the Bluebird eggs or babies.

In the middle of the night–when I can’t sleep–I’m constructing (in my mind) projects for my backyard.  Now I’ve been invited to decorate an area in the front, too.  The neighbor that has cultivated that area–for years–is moving so I was the logical choice to maintain that area.

The camera is working just fine (Praise the Lord!!).  I gave it a  rest (while attending a mandatory training class between 11 and 12), and I inserted two new batteries.  I wish “this old lady” had some batteries to rejuvenate her!!!!!!!!  Fortunately, it wasn’t “too cold” outside but I was only out for about half-an-hour.  Feeders need feed, the patio needs sweeping, but I limited myself to that one outdoor project.  Gotta take care of my Bluebirds!! (I bought the necessary clamp at Ace Hardware yesterday.)
