Winter has returned

This is what I saw out of the window by my computer. The little robin had just taken a bath in the mud puddle you see. When I went out to do the chores this evening there were many many robins in the yard. They were hopping around on the ground and in the apple tree. I don't know why they were congregating here.
Today we had a blizzard, a rain storm and much wind. I am so tired of this. I want to ride
and can not do it in this weather. Oh well.

I finished the Easter baskets I made for the girls, grown up and little and some for the grandsons. I made them out of paper bags. I didn't think they would want lace, beads and ribbon. Bob agreed with me.

I cleaned all the hardwood floors today and folded laundry and cooked the potatoes for the potato salad. I will cook the eggs tomorrow so I can get that all put together except for the dressing tomorrow. When I was at Walmart yesterday I bought so lightweight plastic dishes all bright Eastery colors. I hate paper plates. These were very inexpensive and when they break we can toss them. Got a platter which I didn't really need but for 1.00 it was a pretty green and a bowl which was also a pretty spring color. The dishes were 4 for a buck so you see if they break away they go.

Lots to do tomorrow.
