Yesterday, with visions of tomato blossoms and fresh baby lettuce dancing in my head, I felt as though spring had arrived! My dreams were dashed this morning, when I looked outside at two inches of snow on the ground. It was completely unexpected! My son-in-law, Bryan, has committed to Saturday to begin sod removal for the new garden plot. That might have to be put on hold.
Yesterday son John installed the new carpet in Mr. Granny's man cave. It looks so much better! I got such a good deal on a remnant that was exactly the right size to carpet not only that room, but a small bedroom as well! I hadn't planned on replacing that carpet, but the 12' x 29' remnant was less expensive than purchasing a 12' x 15' for the man cave alone. Mr. Granny and I moved all the furniture out of the room on Saturday, and we put down the new padding. Sunday we whimpered a lot about our old, aching muscles, and let John do most of the work. I think we'll wait for him to help move the furniture out of the bedroom today, although he moans and groans about his aches and pains almost as much as we do!
All that furniture moving and carpet laying wore Otto out.
I think I've solved the problem I was having with CAPTCHA. I've always had control over comment moderation, having every comment sent to me email. My email was inundated with spam when I removed word verification from my comments, and I was really tearing my hair out over it. Well, DUH! I stopped having your comments sent to my email! Blogger does a good job of removing the spam to a different tab, so now I don't have to look at it. I just have to publish the comments through Blogger Dashboard, rather than from my email. So.....for now at least, this blog will remain a word verification free zone.
