It feels like spring

Today was a lovely early spring day.  It was warm in the 60's however we are having a cold front coming in soon.  I came down with a cold yesterday and today it really hit me.  I woke up in the middle of the night with blocked sinus' and a sore throat.  Now I just have the stuffy/runny nose and body aches.  I hate colds.  I haven't had one in a long time, so I guess I should count my blessings.

I went and checked on one of my geocaches today because last report it was under water.  I didn't bring my GPS thinking I would be able to find it easily.  I hid it in the summer and now in the very early spring, everything looks very different.  I walked right by it and didn't see it at all.  On the way back, Dave spotted it.  It was good and dry, but seeing as it was quite close to the creek, I moved it back about 20 feet.  The creek is swollen but not coming over the banks yet.  Trout season is starting in a few days and there is still about a foot and 1/2 on the ground along the stream.  It was quite a workout plunging along through that hard, crusty snow.  I was sweaty and exhausted by the time I got back to the car.  I still have quite a bit of snow in the yard also and can't wait for it to melt so I can plan out a garden.  I got some wonderful news the other day.  Re-building Together is going to build me a new shed!  I don't have one at all and it will be great to have one put up for me.  It would be nice if it came with a lawnmower and snowblower in it too!  Not much else for news.  Linda

I hope you get to feeling better soon. I used to love to trout fish. Wish I could do that now. Hope all that snow is soon gone. Helen

Oh I hate colds when it is warming up outside!  They seem worse than winter colds.  I hope you feel better soon. Snow, on the ground still?  I have already had to break out the mower last weekend, and the front is about to get away from me, I got to get that mowed here in the next day or so...hope your area greens up for you soon so you can garden. :)

I hope the cold soon goes Linda. We've had a few days of spring weather but we're back to the dull grey skies now! The shed will be well used I bet! Jeannette xx  http://journals.aol.co.uk/jlocorriere05/Welcometomytravels/
