Thanks for all the lovely comments and I much appreciate them. I am very busy with my mom, she is stuck in a wheelchair and very weak these days and sleeps lots. I have U tube for her on her smart TV and I go up and put on a long thread of beautiful music, funny animals and pretty birds and animals in paradise. She loves that and I push her around all over the place and help feed her lunch as well, My mom comes first and everything else comes last.
I did manage to get some stuff done around the house and cleaning fish tanks and trying to catch up with housework and produce a nice pond video as the pumpkins have taken over the garden and the fish ponds look so awesome despite neglecting the yard for a while....

Thank you for the video. Your garden still looks beautiful, I love how the squash took over. It's nice to hear that your Mom has settled in, it must be a comfort, and relief to both you and your mom. Good look with painting the kitchen, picking a color is half the battle:)

You are a good kid to your mom and sorry to hear she is weaker now. Yes we do all have to go through these things in life but God is right there w/us guiding us along. If we never get to meet here on earth I look forward to meeting you and your mom in Heaven someday. Not too soon tho as I'm not ready to go yet!
Your ponds, fish and gardens are all looking wonderful!

I got wall paper too....yes I know want to brighten up the kitchen. Still deciding on when to get that project started. Need a few days off but that is hard to get. When I am off the frozens hardly get stocked and the shelves all go empty.... Its a hard job nobody wants to do. I have so many plans but not enough time to do everything.

Do not put it in moisture rooms like kitchens or bathrooms it peels and make sure walls are prep good so it is easy to take down .My house in NJ when I bought it had wallpaper in every room and boy was it hard to take down in most of the rooms because it was not installed right .I used every thing to get it down

I have one wall in the living room that I want to change. It should look good there and that wall could use a new look too. Once I get a day off I will do before and after pictures.

OK so I am back here cause its SPRING Finally!!! Snow is melting like crazy and I still have guppies alive and outside after one of the coldest February's on record!
Guppy pond was covered with a dome and little 80 gallon pond was kept warm with two fish tank heaters. I tried to catch all the guppies last fall but some were hard to catch so here we are in Spring and I still have some babies and a few adults that managed to survive that extra cold February and March!

Getting my pond ready for spring, ran all winter no issues. Well besides the gazebo frame collapsed from the huge snow fall. Hoping the koi spawn early summer so I can get more.

Looks nice and springy at your ponds now.
I like watching Bear going around checking out and giving a good sniff to all your animal decor around the pond edge. Little Rio looks like she needs a cup of coffee :happy:
