This is an awesome story about Pine Tree Crosses. I'll be on the lookout for sure! http://wandascountryhome.com/pinetrees/index.html
My Papa told me many things about trees and their leaves but I had never heard this story. I am amazed at how nature "knows" the seasons...like the dogwoods will be in bloom by Easter, no matter when Easter is, March or April. Pine tree crosses shooting towards the heavens.....the animals knealing at Old Christmas.....sunflowers "following" the path of the sun.....leaves curling up when there is impending rain. God is awesome in His creation.
Speaking of nature, my Yankee husband just called me from the seed store to ask "which bean did you want most of?" and I said the "speckled kind - not the green ones". He and my step-Dad are in the middle of planting the garden. I said don't forget the fertilizer. I do love speckled butterbeans and now my daughter is actually hoarding them from me when my Nanny cooks them. They planted Dixie Lee peas on Wednesday (this is funny cause my hubby is such a city boy) and I said "how many seeds to a hole and did you toss in some fertilizer too?". Hubby says no fertilizer. HUH??? Oh my you've gotta be kidding me! No wonder they had to replant the peas last year LOL. I need to get a picture of Tom planting a garden...to send to NY and FLA to his family - kind of a city / gothic america portrait!!!! What I need to do is let TOM come to work for ME and let ME go help plant the garden. Of course I say it's doomed anyway cause my Papa always said you had to wait till after the new moon or plant on Good Friday. Neither is here jes yet.
Well it is TGIF....and payday Friday (and I'm alone today) for all my subcontractors and as usual the boss is still mulling over the legistics of their invoices (grrrrrr). Especially masons....why is it always a taffy pull when it comes to brick counts?! ~*#^% And could we wait a liiiiiiiiiiiitle later to get these guys paid today huh??? Ruin my morning already, cause the phone will be ringing "when can I come pick up my check?" and I have to say "dunno"....I have begged and begged for these things to be done by Thursday no later, but da boss always, ALWAYS, drags his feet. One Friday it was so bad that my co-worker and I went to lunch (checks were not ready yet) and we put a note on the door that said "Call Boss at cell # for your check". Now that went over real good! There was a line of subs waiting outside when we got back and the boss was GONE. That'll teach him..........so we thought.
I need to clean house this weekend....and you're all expected to KICK BUTT if I don't....I've talked hubby into taking Tara to the birthday party in the morning. That way I have quiet time to do the things I need to without being disturbed. Plus I bought some material and I just might get around to cutting out a dress for Tara and making a matching pocketbook. If I do well on the pocketbook, I'll make one for her friend, Cassie, who just happened to spend the night last night. They are at the farm today, too, chasing the goats not planting LOL.
Oh well, TGIF to everybody and have a fun April Fool's Day!
