Winter Slipped In

We had freezing weather Monday night.  It had been comfortably warm for several weeks.  I planted tomatoes, peppers and fragile herbs. When I learned it was going to freeze, I covered every thing, in hopes of protecting the plants.  Then there was a frost last night.  The tomatoes and peppers suffered some damage, but I believe they will pull through.  I lost one basil plant, the rest did fine.  There are not supposed to be any more freezes for the rest of the spring.  One just never knows what the weather may decide to do.

My current employment petered out, so I am one of those unemployed that we are hearing so much about.  I have experience in a number of fields.  I have been a travel agent,  insurance agent, and customer service agent.  I have worked as a trainer in my field.  I was a reservation manager for Alaska Airlines.  I would like to find something where I can work from home.  Most of those positions are for computer gurus, which I am not.  I am proficient in most of the applications and take care of my own IT work here at home, but I don’t have the expertise for a profession.  I would like to obtain that expertise but it is not feasible at this time.

I am a starving artist.  I do have a web site at http://www.norasartcache.com.  Go check out.  Maybe you will see something you like.

My lilacs are in bloom.  I love how they fill the air with such a sweet fragrance.  The butterflies always come to visit when the lilacs are in bloom.  I have added a photo so you can share this with me.

The Fall of Fall

It was 27 degrees when I got up this morning.  There is a silver frost covering the lawn and the pasture behind my house.  It is lovely.

I have a maple and a pecan in my back yard.  The maple has been dressed in a beautiful golden glow with a bit of orange for trim.  The pecan puts on its green summer dress in the spring and then takes it off with the first freeze.  This morning I watched the leaves from both trees float down.  It reminds me of huge snowflakes drifting down.  I suppose by the end of the day, they will be mostly bare.
