Still cold

Spring is lasting a long time around here due to the extended cold period we have had.  It has barely made it to 60 for days now.  I'm ready for a little warmth!  I think this weekend is supposed to warm up.  I have no plans for the weekend yet.  I would like to try and do some geocaching.  I want to try out that new GPS of mine.  I have wrens nesting in a wren house out back and they are the cutest darn things.  They chirp and burble all day long.  The baby robins at work left the nest and have been living in the courtyard at Wesley being duly tended by Mom robin. 

I talked to the Saratoga Co. Employment and Training place about Travis' application and they said he is probably eligible for the program and a counseler will be in touch with us.  I hope he trys hard.  There may be a position at my own job that he can take.  He will be able to ride into work with me!  That would make things convenient!  They hire kids to do cleaning, mow, yard work etc...  I think if he applies himself he will do well. 

I got a graduation announcement and invitation for my niece Nikki for June 27th.  She is a year older than Travis.  She works for the Great Escape summers usually.  She is a nice girl and is a good artist too.  I am going to see if I can take a half day off and go to her party.  Next year will be Travis' turn!  Hard to believe that kid is going to be graduating high school!  I hope he doesn't give up and quit. 

I guess I'm out of words...  Have a good day everyone!

It has been miserable weather lately.  Doug has been reading about geocaching alot lately and asked if I wanted to give it a try.  He read on one of the forums about some of things people have encountered...dead body..used condoms...a dead rat...poop...have you ever come across anything like that?  I told him you do it and seem to really enjoy it, I still think it would be neat.

Yucky weather all around I think.  Where did the sun and warmth go? LOL
Enjoy your day.

I hope Randy can get a good job for this summer and will do good. Birds are all over the place here and grabbing food to take to babies. It's a beautiful sunshiny day here but storms moved through the area late yesterday evening. No damage done here. Hugs, Helen

A good summer job would be a wonderful thing for him.  I too, hope he sees the necessity of staying with school until he gets that diploma.  -  Barbara
