Wednesday Night

IMG_0011-XLIt’s dark out there.  I can hear the cars driving by on the main road out back of my place as people are going home from work.  Of course a couple sirens were wailing out there a little while ago.  I hear sirens all the time and especially during this part of the day.  There’s always a fender bender not too far away and one of the fire stations is only five houses away from me.  I sometimes joke that the firedogs would only have to drag their hoses down here and leave the truck at the station since I’m so close.

It’s cold out there but nothing unusual for this time of year in central Minnesota.  I can’t complain about the cold because it’s normal and this is Minnesota after all; but I do anyway.  It sinks in bone deep right now and the arthritis in my neck and hands lets me know that its none too happy with the temps the way they are right now.  Well, I guess there’s always the possibility of taking a couple more aspirin to relieve some of the discomfort.

The fireplace is on and the cats are laid out in front of it soaking it the heat as it radiates out.  I sit there and look at them and they lay there in front of it and I wonder just how in the world they aren’t cooking away and how I don’t end up with baked cat.   God they hate it when they have to move away from it.  They end up giving me that “one pissed off cat” look whenever that happens.

I looked outside just a little bit ago and noticed a bunny hopping alongside my neighbors pine trees.  I ducked in under the low hanging branches before I could get a shot.  I wonder how long it will take before it discovers the feed dish that I set out under the deck with rabbit feed in it.  I don’t imagine that it will take too long before it starts freeloading off of me.  That’s OK.  It just means I’m watching out for one of God’s creatures.

  1. I’m glad you got to see your bunnies and I hope you stay warm. You are even further north than our daughter is and my poor gal is a southern belle born and bred so when she went to Michigan with him it had to be love. She wears a coat year round up there and is absolutely miserable this time of year.
    A heating pad set to low will help a bit with the neck pain, I hear that having arthritis in your back or neck is the worst kind to have, pain level wise. Warm water therapy can help too sooooo now you have a reason to build yourself a nice little jacuzzi.


      • I will check my list and get back to you. I have one internet match to my credit they are happily married three years now.
        From what i know of you though, I would think you have the ladies swarming all over you without any help from me.


      • Ha ha she sounds like fun maybe she just wants some attention? I will be grandkitty sitting for a few months starting mid December it will be nice to have a cat in the house again.
