Mother Nature’s April Fool’s Day Joke

Who would think that Mother Nature would be the April Fool’s trickster this year! 

Just when  I’ve got the water situation in the garage under control…

(Ernie decided to write his name for posterity in the wet cement that Handyman Jerry used to patch the garage floor around the new sump pump. )

and I’m ready to write some gardening tutorials about forcing branches, farmer’s markets, early veggie crops & planting seeds she decided to let winter have a last laugh and drop eight inches of snow last night!

(Does this crabapple tree look happy?)

So my attention is again diverted to my other  projects like doing some more fundraising for my Avon walk…April Fool's Day 2011 009

and making a laptop sleeve (tutorial to come)… 


and repairing some vintage doll clothes for a Cabbage Patch doll collector.  Some of these outfits are very hard to find and worth quite a bit of money.

I’m heading out to start up “Deere Jane” and clear the driveway of snow—hopefully for the very last time!  Sigh.


  1. We got a few inches, but the rain melted it away, I really have had enough;)


  2. Eight inches of snow... oh my... hopefully there'll be no more until next winter!

  3. I'm looking forward to your gardening posts. Really how do you force branches?
    May the snow melt quickly.


Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment. When you do, you make my day!
