I put my winter jacket away yesterday. It's not that it too warm to wear it (it's not) but that is May already. I am going to wear my spring jacket. So what if I have two sweaters on underneath it.
I have not done this for a long time. My this-week's-to-do list is so long that I have started next week's list.
The woodchuck (family?) has burrowed two tunnels under the garden shed. One was bad enough, now they have a condominium development out there. I was in the shed the other day and I jumped up and down screaming, "Go away!" I believe that had no effect whatsoever. At least they have not started chomping down my plants because the plants have not started growing yet. If only there was a way to get the darn critters to eat weeds down to the ground.
The tree people arrived today--a little earlier than I had expected. That is fine because they are getting to that box elder before it starts its shedding act. Once that is taken care of I will have someone clean and restain the deck and clean the moss off the garage roof. Then I will be able to haul out the deck furniture. I remain optimistic that summer will arrive eventually.
I read this article that was posted on Facebook that was a warning about climate change is likely to impact the supply of certain foods. Maple syrup is among the foods that may be disappearing. It was certainly a poor season in VT this year. Even more concerning: coffee and chocolate may become scarce. If this is not a reason to spur some activism, I do not know what is!! Wine regions are also in danger. This is definitely NOT the kind of world I want to leave for my grandchildren.
Come out, come out, wherever you are!
