5 for Friday


1. I decided to take a wellness day for me.  I’m all out of sorts from the cold anywho so what’s sick day from work?  Besides, I have tons of sick time on the books so it won’t be like I’m losing anything.

2. I have one fat squirrel coming to feed at the expense of my birds.  The gummys call it “Squirrely”.  I call it “target or opportunity” if it doesn’t start leaving the feeders alone.

3. There are a couple outdoor chores to get done tomorrow and that’s it for this season.  That reads kinda weird when I read it back.  It seems so … concluded.  Oh well.  It’s time to start pinching off and deadheading the marigolds so I can put them away for next year.

4. The local weather people are saying we’re averaging about 15*F warmer above normal temperatures for this part of the Hundred Acre Wood.  I’ll take it if this is the global warming that Al Gore warned us about.  I still miss my southern Iowa autumns.

5. One good thing about taking a day off in the work week is getting a chance to see all these old B&W movies on channels like Turner Classic Movies.  You do know that John Wayne won World War 2 all by himself don’t you?

My brain isn’t working so good today so I’m off to the market.  Feel free to leave comments or even just say “Aloha!”

I think this is the part where you are to write something clever and witty about yourself. I’m solidly locked in middle age and content with myself. I love to travel to see and experience new things, new foods and new drink. I also like to cook and bake mainly because I like to eat. And I found out that I’m pretty good at both. I'm not a professional blogger nor do I want to be. I'll leave that to others while I'll kick back and post whatever suddenly pops into my brain. I'm more spontaneous anyway. And the rest we’ll just kinda sorta figure out as we go along. Feel free to leave comments or even just to say "Hello". Find me at: https://mnghostt.wordpress.com.
