Not much is going on around here. I'm itching to get outside and do some flower bed cleaning and rose bush pruning, but it is still too cool for that. There's plenty of time, before spring arrives, but there are so many things I want to do. I know, for sure, there are some Privet hedges that need to be moved. They aren't doing well where they are. I guess not enough sunshine. I've been trying to figure out what I will put in their place. Maybe just put in some gravel and a statue or some other decorative piece.
I have started my spring cleaning, though, I won't begin washing walls and such, until it warms up for good. I've been dragging junk out of closets, and storage areas, to donate. How in the world do we accumulates so much STUFF? I just did this a couple of years ago. I've tried super hard to not bring in more than I throw out, but somehow, it still gets piled up. My husband is as bad as I am...that's why his shop looks like it does even though he blames that on me! He might be worse! HeHe!
We've been hanging out at home, for the most part, but last weekend we did take a little day trip. It really wasn't much more than sitting in the car and driving for two or three hours. I had a plan but when it took us more time to get to our first stop, than we had planned, we decided to go eat and start the drive back home. Our first stop ended up being about an hour and a half drive through a big bunch of nothing called Tallgrass Prairie Preserve.
LoL I kid you not! Gravel roads and miles and miles of prairie land! We did have a chance to get really close to the buffalo that freely roam the preserve.
We were about 50 yards from this guy. Trust me when I tell you, I was inside the car when I took most of these pictures. Apparently, buffalo can jump about six feet, both vertically and horizontally. They also can run at a clip of 35mph. That's far quicker and further than I can run and jump, so I stayed at a safe distance.
I love this picture! I did some editing on it and will probably put it in a frame. Again...I was in the car taking pictures out of the windows. They really were more curious than anything, though.
Now, on the other hand, this big man didn't act like he was too keen on us looking at his little harem and babies! He never took his eyes off of us. This group was about 200 yards away, but I felt pretty sure we would be in trouble if Big Boy, there, decided to let us know how he felt! Such magnificent creatures!
I guess I should get back to cleaning! Have a great afternoon, y'all!
Grace & Peace,
