Random Thoughts for a new March


Well, that kid of mine made it safe and sound to Salt Lake City so Dad can actually relax now and get on with life.  I’m gonna miss that kid hanging around my house, eating my food and drinking all of my coffee but I know she will be alright.

We got to travel thru some morning snow flurries on the way to work this morning.  It was snowing because it was too cold to rain.  That’s typical for this time of year in central Minnesota.  We are once again back to “it’s cold-no it’s hot-no it’s cold-not it’s hot again” weather.  “In like a lion and out like a lamb”.  That’s March in central Minnesota but don’t count out “In like a lion and out like a lion as well”.  It stopped snowing around 7:00 AM (0700) anywho.

Yanno, I just realized that I left home this morning without my lunch.  It’s a nice one too.  I made a container with some smashed potatoes, gravy, green beans and roast beef slices.  It’s a good thing I left it in the fridge to keep it nice and chilled.  I guess that means sandwich day today.  Ugh!

I have my eye on a new camera lens but I tend to wonder if I’m being too frugal because I’m concerned with its cost.  My oldest said I was being cheap.  True but I remember eating soup every day and being grateful that we had it.

OK, time to get after some work this morning.

      1. we have had the most snow, and cold, we have had in years and years in downtown Vancouver. I have my little heater warming my feet while I sit in my home office at the computer. Weather is just getting more extreme everywhere I would suppose. 🙂

      1. you don’t have to spend that much to get a good lens. I have a couple photographer friends that suggested some very good lenses that were well under $1K USD each

      2. Woop Woop is an Australian term meaning far away from anything of interest, as in “he lives out woop woop”. Equivalent terms include ” beyond the black stump”, “Boondock” and “out in the sticks”. Wikipedia

  2. Aw haha. I actually need something more solid than soup (guilty face). I don’t know, have you tried photography? It can be fun, if you enjoy it, I think you should put a more-than-cheap camera on your mind.

  3. I think you Minnesotians sent us your “it’s cold-no it’s hot-no it’s cold-not it’s hot again” weather minus the snow. Forecasters keep forecasting snow but thank goodness at least where I am we’ve only had a smidge.
