I saw a TikTok last week that said you can communicate with your cat when you are ready to listen. Make eye contact and do a slow blink (this connects with them and is basically saying I love you) then ask them what they need or want.
We just had a weekend with high temperatures in the 80s. A few weeks ago, the irrigation water in the Yakima Valley began to flow, sprinkler systems were checked out and put into service, and we adopted the full head of steam into spring.
Now, weather forecasters are sounding the alarm for a potentially costly battle with freezing temperatures, threatening crops, plants, flowers, sprinkler systems
The days now will gradually become longer and nights shorter culminating at the longest day of the year, June 20th, when Spring passes the torch to Summer. Of course, many will begin the task of outlining a grand 'to do list' for themselves and their husbands, I mean, spouses, which will likely involve all kinds of spring cleaning both inside and outside of the home.
Spring is one of my favorite times of the year, you have more sunshine and longer days. The grass starts to turn green and flowers and trees blossom. The only downside is allergies.
I've been taking zyrtec for most of my allergy symptoms, but that wasn't solving the problem of my dry itchy eyes. After consulting with my doctor he determined that some special eye drops would help.
As a kid I loved playing in the yard and one thing we would do is use snapdragon flowers as perishable villains for our G.I. Joe's. I'm not sure how much Grandma liked us plucking all her flowers to play with, but you could squeeze the back of the flower to make it's mouth open.
If spring would ever get here we could start the yearly process of spring cleaning. I opened my fridge the other day and it was full of expired eggs, fresh vegetables that had gone bad and spilled jam from who knows when. To me the refrigerator is the most important thing on my spring cleaning list.
