Every year in the springtime two Mallards appear in my garden 
I love to hear their quacking
Once they made a nest...with an egg...but alas, they abandoned it for some reason
 they are truly the sign that I wait for
before exhaling......Spring!!!
It has rained hard here lately...the ducks even had a few puddles to swim in...truly they did

The new wood floors  going in upstairs are almost finished
But it has been a nightmare for the cats
and me
I have been sick for a week with a virus of the ..can't lift my head off the couch..kind of virus
...sanding...pounding..banging, grinding.....stain and varnish
yikes...I don't think I am going to make it
My house looks like a hoarders ...stuff everywhere
and next week..they head downstairs
We have moved around the house at night...going from one bedroom to another
as they move us out of them
The kitties are stressed beyond belief
Abigail cries at night not knowing where we are
and Boo....well , Boo....he thinks its party time
Old Lady Ms Kitty one is moving her....
I finished that awful book.....hated every word of it...creepy
I watched the author on youtube
explained a lot to me
But the worst thing is I missed my Bookies book club discussion about it
sick......if only I had known..I could have spared myself
I am a difficult reader to please...just ask my book group
My dear mother brought over a cozy mystery for me by M.C.Beaton
Agatha Raisin mystery...Busy Body
Agatha is vain, bossy and always where the bodies are.....
gosh I love her
just what a sick woman needs while sipping hot tea and lemon
Pictures of the floors when they are finished


  1. Oh Suz sorry the floors are getting you down ~ literally !
    I do hope you are feeling better soon and dancing with glee when they are finished .
    Be Well,

  2. I look at our floors and know we are going to have to do something about ours soon, so I have taken notes :) I have heard these things take a long time and hope you'll be able to get everything squared away soon. Happy Days to look back and see them finished, even though that day seems a ways off just yet.

  3. Mallards in the garden are wonderful but those new wood floors sound like they are getting you down. I'm sure it's the mess and the fact that you're not feeling well. Just think... by the time you're well, the floors will be done and all will be right with the world. I promise. Take care.

  4. Hope you feel better soon! House is going to be beautiful!

  5. When we had hardwood installed a few years ago, Henry, Gretta and I were lucky enough to head to our sanctuary in Vermont. The noise and the smells made us nuts! Can't imagine adding a virus to the mix. Hang in there, Suz, the place will soon look spectacular.

    Love your mallards. So fun to have your very own sign of spring. I've heard the whip-poor-will these past few evenings, such a sure sign of spring.

    Sending you best wishes for a speedy recovery...

  6. just think of how nice it will be when the floors are dont stress them getting down....once its all cleaned up life will be well.....

  7. I'm so sorry you've been sick -- sounds like a trying time altogether, I lived Tine Traveller's Wife -- but it probably takes being in the right frame of mind and not feeling sick and discombobulated. I have several shelves of well worn comfort reads for such times... Get better soon!

  8. I LOVED not lived Time Traveller's Wife. Just wanted to make that clear...

    1. oh dear.......I hated it

    2. We had a really good discussion about the book, Sue. Wish you had been there. Mixed feelings all the way through the book. Sure different. Love your mallards. Sorry bout the egg. We usually have a couple too. Anyway...we missed you and sorry you have been sick!!!

  9. Hope you feel better Suz, could be the varnish and sawdust etc. making you feel ill

    1. I have thought the same thing.......

  10. Your floors are going to be so great. I bet it will end up being worth the illness. Wish I were installing new floors this summer.


If you have landed in my tree..give me a chirp,fluff your feathers...drop... me a comment
