This is one of the Tulip Poplars we have on the property. It has been extremely windy today in yesterday, and it has been trying to snow off and on all day. Very unusual for Maryland. At this time of year. It’s been cold, and we’ve had late freeze warnings where I have had to cover up my house plants at night (outside). I haven’t brought them outside yet because it really hasn’t warmed up enough yet. I usually have them out by now. The temperature outside is 48 degrees. With the windchill, it probably feels like it’s around 40. Supposed to get down into the 30’s tonight.

I am still self isolating. Haven’t been anywhere – except on my property – in about a week. So glad I have 3+ acres, otherwise I might be going stir crazy right now. Soon enough, my son and I are going to go hiking. I feel for everyone that only has an apartment, condo, small lot. I couldn’t do it!

As many of you are aware, I had an opossum/possum visit last night. I had seen him – or her – that morning. We could hear something messing around under the grill. My boyfriend grabbed a flashlight from inside, and sure enough it was a opossum. I’ve had raccoons come up on the deck going after trash we had set out, but never an opossum.

My son is in training… learning how to fall up stairs. Gonna take after his mother (me). I have done it way too many times to count. I guess you’d really say trip going up the steps, but hey… I once fell going up the stairs at Shepherd University. Luckily, it was summertime and no one was really around.

There’s is much more, but I’m sure I’ve bored you enough!

Tomorrow is…
