Ah, it's something else to do that's different from the day-in, day-out stuff in the winter.

Well, that and the fact it has to be done.

Temps warming up this week to the mid 40's with lots of sun, and will be in the low 50's by the end of the week. Not as warm as where you are, but most, if not all of the snow will gone by weeks end.

I knew you would take a break from your chores and visit.

It really isn't warm right now but the sunshine lifts the spirit even when I only look at it through the window.

I've really got 4 or 5 weeks to get everything ready for junior's homecoming. Hopefully he'll have been offered a job before then.

The car dealership is constantly bugging me to come in for an oil change, even when I told them several weeks ago I've got another 2000 kms before it's due. They went on about how its' not about the "miles", the oil degrades over time.

I suggested they looked into my service record, they'll find that I use synthetic, and rarely get even close to the mileage required for the oil changes. Heck, I even park the car in the garage over the winter!

I told them I'd call to set up an appointment for a tire swap, and oil in April, so stop calling me.

I pretty much would declare the BS from the dealer. They just need the work.

I normally get two oil changes per year - one with each tire swap (April and November). I've believe I've got a good relationship with the shop foreman since the dealership was constructed way back . The foreman still does the serious work on my car (he knows how obsessive I can be with my cars) and feel he's been truthful with respect to what I really need, and what can wait.

Unfortunately, all I can give is advice. The "kids" today are the ones to choose what advice, or part thereof, they wish to take and use, and which to discard.

Unless your kids are smarter than most of the ones I see, they do whatever is the popular choice supported with posts on a social media site are.

They're good kids. And I'm not saying that cause they're going to take us in when we get older and sell our place.

My youngest one's favorite line is he will pick the nursing home so we should be nice to him.

Honestly if I am old and down I think I would rather be in one than work the ones I love to death trying to care for me.

My eyeballs tell me it is time to think about sewing some grass seed in a few bare spots. Fall is the best time but it wasn't possible last Fall.

One local place I had checked out for my father a little while back is one that I would want to move into today. It was built about 4 years ago. It is clean, bright, great dining room, pool room, a swimming pool, hot tub, set on a ravine, and it's got a real "theatre" for movies.

Be careful not to put the seed down too early - if you are expecting lots of heavy rain. I'm sure you know what to expect with your spring weather better than I.

I do know what is normal.. Normal has not been for the last 2 years.

I am going to sow it and hope for normal. Worst case I get to do it over. It probably won't wash away but it may rot.

Could not find the particular seed I wanted for a shady area. Wound up buying a blend which is 1/3 what I really wanted. Going to sow it when it warms up just a bit more.

Our grass is finally showing thru the melting snow. It's going to be cool, but at last sunny this week, so that should melt the rest of the snow and snowbanks around town.

I sometimes get "vole" lawn damage, which is noticeable after the winter thaw. My property backs on to a forest, so we can get all sorts of critters setting up camp.

The local rabbits are out now and don't look thin, so they've probably been munching on my border cedars again.

The chipmunks have made their appearance too. One paused in front of the sliding doors to the back property, and was just looking me over while I was sipping away at my coffee this morning.

Got another call from the dealership again to schedule the tire swap on my older car. I told them I'd book the appointment in April, as soon as I know what my son's schedule is like.

Sheesh. I'm starting to get a bit annoyed. Told them not to call back. I said I'd call them.

I should have gone out without waiting for it to warm up. I worked up a sweat have straw dust in my nose.

My lawn care company was like your car dealer last year trying to sell me aeration. They customer service made the mistake of calling to see how they were doing. So I told her and the calls stopped.

Actually, aeration is a good thing to have done. I'd recommend it every other year until you get the quality of turf you are happy with. It can help un-compact the soil at the root level. And, it can help with drainage - which is also good for roots and healthy grass.

They say spring and fall are good times for this type of service, but if I had to choose, I'd have it done in late April for your area, or early May up here.

I used to have a lawn maintenance business about 25 years ago.

When the local government requires the phone and cable companies to bury their lines deep enough to avoid damage then I might consider it.

The machines they use in residential areas around here barely penetrate the sod level and are a waste of time and money.
