Hey all--so sorry for the lack of GPOD today--I've been laid up with the flu for the past few days, and I didn't have access to the tools I needed to pull together a post for this morning. BUT...why not revisit the GPOD Pinterest page? I update it every few weeks, and it just keeps getting better and better.

Back to normal tomorrow, I promise! --Michelle

tractor1 writes: Michelle, I'm so glad to hear that you got that nasty flu bug licked and are on the mend. Feel free to stop in anytime for all the soup you can eat, I still cook like I'm feeding the crew on the John Paul Jones US DD932. I had the most awful sinus infection for three full months, from October through January, after mega doses of three different antibiotics I finally won out... it's no fun being sick. I was so miserable that some days I should not have posted here.

It was 45 degrees today, the snow is melted and it won't be long I'll be spending most of my time mowing again... I'm hoping for a dry summer, I don't mind some rain but not so much that my fields are mud and I can't mow. This us the first year since I can't remember when that I'm not cooking corned beef.

cwheat000 writes: Pinterest is great. Thanks for introducing me. It was extra awesome you put some of my garden photos on there. It has been a nasty winter for viruses. Feel better and I hope spring comes soon. I did my first day of clean up in the garden today. I already have spring fever. Posted: 5:11 pm on March 11th
MizScarlet writes: Hi Michelle, I'm a Master Gardener Volunteer and am often up and out early--leaving the GPOD until late afternoon or early evening. I don't always take the time to comment, but I certainly always enjoy the pics--taking the time to study each one. I just realized how much I would miss coming home to this "treat" if it were no longer available. So, today, I just want to say "thank you" to you and all the contributors for making this a wonderful part of my day. One day I will have more time to enjoy and comment at my leisure. Thanks!

tntreeman writes: michelle, raining here now so i have been snooping around past gpod features and found your place! snazzy, beautiful, comforting and i remember the days i had a swing hanging from the tree. i do, however, wish your husband could hire out down here. i could keep him busy here at home for a long time. i never let lack of extra cash slow me down!!

I know where I will be spending some time this morning...getting lost in the GPOD Pinterest page. Posted: 7:23 am on March 11th
