Not too much new on Witch's Island

Spring has Sprung!!!!

At least I hope so, I'm so sick and tired of looking at this snow. Yes, we still have lots of it.Who can think of gardening with all this shitty looking white stuff still hanging around. Well, I guess I can because I went to the local gardening store yesterday and bought some seeds to start indoors sometime soon. We got some bottle gourds which are a strange looking seed. I really can't tell which end to plant in the soil. Last year we put them in and they grew nicely but I felt they were way behind because I didn't start them inside earlier in the winter. This year we will give them a head start. Last year's gourds are drying out nicely in the basement and will become birdhouses, probably in the next couple of weeks.

We haven't won a damn thing from Tim Hortons roll-up the rim to win. There has been lots of winners around here, though. Two people have won the 10,000 dollar prize.

We're making baked beans again for supper again tonight. We're also cooking a roast beef and a meat pie, which I made around X-mas time, so we should have lots to eat through the week. I'm working the evening shift so it is nice to plan for the week ahead. That way we both eat healthy. For dessert I'm making my world famous butter tarts and I will post some pictures later, supposing that I can snap a shot before Hubby eats them all.

Just want to remind everyone of Earth Hour this Sat (March 28th). At 8:30 until 9:30 turn your lights out and have some fun while helping the environment. Can't wait to see what Google will do this year on their site. My plans are maybe playing a game of chess by candle light, a bubble bath by candle light, a walk down to the stream by candle light, or if the night is really nice I would like to bundle up in my winter coat and sit in the deck chairs with a glass of wine,( no candles it will ruin your night vision)and just take in the moment.

Hope you all think about your plans for Earth Hour!!!

Take Care.
