Wordy Or Not So Wordy Wednesday


I am so glad that winter is almost officially over, I love when it is spring time.  I am so ready to start decorating my yard and getting ready for the warm months.  We got lucky this week and had a few nice days, that were unseasonably warm.  But of course, according to the farmer's almanac we are supposed to get more snow, and I am starting to believe it because it is back down in the 20's

Peanut playing on her swingset on one of the nice days this week

Peanut was so excited that she finally got to play outside without freezing, she even asked if we could go swimming in her pool.  She is so funny at times.

Mary Jane, my black lab/ boxer mix was even excited about the weather, Look she is smiling

My two babies, Peanut and Mary Jane.  Peanut loves her doggy, even though she is twice Peanuts size

Wordy Or Not So Wordy Wednesday


Since it has been so cold the last few weeks, Peanut and me have been spending a lot of quality time in the house.  We been having pretend birthday parties for the cats, pretend tea parties and just plain playing with toys.  Tonight, we decided to make our birdy house that I had bought for us to do.  As we were making our birdy house, Peanut kept telling me how I am a good painter because I am a nurse.   She is amazed with my job, which is kinda neat.  She also had to tell me several times that she is going to be a nurse when she gets big.  Honestly, this makes me happy to hear that she wants to follow in my footsteps, which I know will probably change when she gets older.

The birdy house put together and ready to be painted

Peanut painting her birdy house, she really had a good time

Peanut with her completed birdy house, she chose the colors all by herself, and she even informed me that her birdy house is going to be taken to my parents campground.  Damn the luck thought we could decorate our yard with it. Haha

Interesting Info I Found About Phil the Groundhog

2011 will be Punxsutawney Phils 125 prognositcation!

Looking for answers to your Groundhog Day questions? You've come to the right spot! Click the links above to learn about various aspects of the Groundhog Day holiday, and how we've been celebrating it in Punxsutawney since 1886. Explore the web site for all the answers you may have about the event, Punxsutawney Phil, The Groundhog Club, Video and Pictures of past events and media information.

Here are some answers to Frequently Asked Questions about the holiday:

Yes! Punxsutawney Phil is the only true weather forecasting groundhog. The others are just impostors.

How often is Phil's prediction correct? 100% of the time, of course!

How many "Phils" have there been over the years? There has only been one Punxsutawney Phil. He has been making predictions for over 125 years!

Punxsutawney Phil gets his longevity from drinking the "elixir of life," a secret recipe. Phil takes one sip every summer at the Groundhog Picnic and it magically gives him seven more years of life.

On February 2, Phil comes out of his burrow on Gobbler's Knob - in front of thousands of followers from all over the world - to predict the weather for the rest of winter.

According to legend, if Punxsutawney Phil sees his shadow, there will be six more weeks of winter weather. If he does not see his shadow, there will be an early spring.

No! Phil's forecasts are not made in advance by the Inner Circle. After Phil emerges from his burrow on February 2, he speaks to the Groundhog Club president in "Groundhogese"(a language only understood by the current president of the Inner Circle). His proclamation is then translated for the world.

The celebration of Groundhog Day began with Pennsylvania's earliest settlers. They brought with them the legend of Candlemas Day, which states, "For as the sun shines on Candlemas Day, so far will the snow swirl in May..."

Punxsutawney held its first Groundhog Day in the 1800s. The first official trek to Gobbler's Knob was made on February 2, 1887.

So the story goes, Punxsutawney Phil was named after King Phillip. Prior to being called Phil, he was called Br'er Groundhog.

I am so excited, the groundhog didn't see his shadow this year.  Spring will be here sooner than we know it.
