Thursday Night


So I’m sitting here thinking of what to say and then I look outside.  It’s grey and wet and brrrr out there.  No, you really don’t wanna know what the temp is out there right now.  I don’t even wanna know what the temp is out there.  And you’re probably thinking to yourself “Hey Jim.  Why is it so brrrr this time of year in central Minnesota?

Yanno, I think it has something to do with all of the Swedes that moved here back in the day.  I think they brought some of that Swedish weather with them so they wouldn’t feel so homesick and it just stuck around here ever since then.  It’s a good thing I have one of those wall thermostat thingees to warm the house back up.  It should be all back to normal come next Wednesday anywho.

In the meanwhile, I think it’s a hot tea night in this house.

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:

  1. It must have been really cold in Sweden before the big numbers of moves to Minnesota. We still have cold weather here, so if they took Swedish coldness with them, they left too much of that here! “Pling”

      1. Brrrr! We had at least 10C here today, but with winds from north it felt like -10C! I hope you get some sun and warm says soon. We all need that after icky bad white stuff season. “Pling”


  2. Right now, here in this town I am living in at 7:34 PM it is 82* , heat index 87* . But that is cool compared to some of the towns south of me that reached the 100* mark today . It’s almost May, surely your weather will stabilize soon and then before you know it, you will be complaining about that Minnesota heat.

  3. Tea sounds like a good idea but your almost Swede bashing calls for an apology to Anna. The present day Swedes didn’t send their weather to you. Mama America or Norte Americana just does this all on her own. Happy Thursday night. ~~dru~~
