Spring Fever

Standard

Spring is my favorite season besides Fall of course so I’ve been getting my yard spring ready with a little help from the puglet.

I put a pile of sticks on the patio so I wouldn't run over them with the mower and Phoebe decided to take each stick out of the pile to chew on it.

I have thoroughly enjoyed sitting outside in my lawn chair reading Game of Thrones these past few weeks. I’m on book 4 (Feast Of Crows) now and I watched all four seasons in one week so now I’m ready for season 5 to start.

I plan to surround my back patio with mosquito repelling plants such as Lavender and Rosemary. I also bought some Basil and Marigold seeds. I will probably buy a few more citronella candles and maybe a few citronella tiki torches because mosquitos are really bad in Mississippi.

I felt like Princess Aurora (Sleeping Beauty) because I had 6 birds and 2 squirrels in yard when I got home on Friday.

I searched for another bird feeder today because the birds are fighting and knocking each other off the feeder but unfortunately I didn’t find one like the one I already have so I will have to keep searching.

Yesterday was Hubfest…..they have arts/crafts booths, bands and food vendors set up downtown so I went to that. I brought Phoebe with me even though I had an issue with 2 dogs snapping at her last year only to find out from a lady as we were walking that they weren’t allowing pets this year!!!! I hadn’t heard that but she said it was on the news and sure enough I saw where it said no pets in the article. I had to go all the way home to drop Phoebe off then go back out there only to see 6 dogs there so obviously they weren’t strictly enforcing it. It made me so mad! I mean my dog has every right to be at an outside event just as much as everyone else but whatever. I thought about not going back out there just for the principle of the thing but I did and I had a good time. I found Southern Pines Animal Shelter’s tent and bought a t-shirt from them but I couldn’t find Hub City Humane Society’s tent to buy a t-shirt from them 😦 Phoebe’s vet usually has their shirts at the counter so I may end up being able to buy one from them after all. I also found this really cool birdhouse so I bought one of those as well.

Afterwards I got a much needed pedicure and met up with some friends for lunch. Afterwards I caught up on some episodes of Grimm

Today I went grocery shopping and bought some new aveeno sunscreen for my face because I definitely don’t need to get sunburned this year. Then I went to Petsmart to get some dog food for Phoebe and ended up getting more than I intended to. I’m thinking about incorporating some raw food that they have in a refrigerator in the pet food aisle into Phoebe’s diet….anyone have any experience with it or suggestions?

They had some of the cutest spring collars but I had to resist purchasing them.

I walked to a few more stores in the shopping center then headed home to hang up my new birdhouse.

the new birdhouse is puglet approved!
