We don’t have to worry about getting our exercise over the next few weeks, because there are plenty of limbs and trees down all over the county. Around Almyra, there are plenty of small ones to be picked up and done away with. Of course, the larger ones will be left for the men folk.
It appears that daylight savings time came just in time to get outside and undertake this mighty task. However, there is a brighter side- if you look closely, you’ll see yellow daffodils emerging. Hopefully, soon we will have daily sunshine. I’m ready and I’m sure you are, too.
The kids will have many stories to share when they return to school this week. I can still see the sleds and hear the laughter when the children flipped into the snow. I also can still see the tracks of four wheelers deeply engraved in the yard. I might leave my grass a little higher this year. Thanks, kids!
The next holiday is Monday, the 17th, which is St. Patrick’s Day. It is a day observed in honor of St. Patrick and celebrated in Ireland in commemoration of his death. Be sure to wear something green that day or you might get pinched. At least, it’s the way I learned. Don’t you know about it?
