I don’t care how much you bundled up, it’s doggone cold out there.  That wind cuts you and goes right straight to the bone with its chill.  This is not a good day to be out and walking even tho I have to.  The plus side is the bunny (or bunnies) cleaned up all of the old baby carrots that I put out for it (them) last night.  Who knows?  It may have been the bunnies or bunnies or mice or bunnies and mice or a Godzilla monster … which is  kind of a stupid thought because that would have left some big ass footie prints in the snow and there would have been noise and it would smashed up my deck and the poh-leese and the National Guard would have been out fighting with tanks and helicopters and bazookas and other implements of mass destruction and there would have been blood and mayhem … and where was I?  Oh yeh.  It’s cold out there today.

That was one helluva run on sentence dontcha think?

Random Thoughts for Monday Morning


Mid-winter is starting to turn into late winter around this neck of the Hundred Acre Wood.  There’s been a lot of melting and refreezing and we’ll see that all the time until snow out.  I do like how the ice crystals sparkle in the sunlight like little diamonds.

It’s a tad cool out there right now.  It’s a rather balmy 2*F (-17C) and it’s rather harsh on one’s exposed face.  I know from first hand experience.  The cold was nipping at my face during one of my walks this morning.  I’ll have to bundle better when I go outside next time.

Speaking of the weather, I guess some knuckleheads who came here for the Super Bowl activities are complaining about how cold it is here.  HELLO!!!  This is central Minnesota in late January!!!  It’s not south Texas or some place warm like that.  Ya think it’s cold?  You should have been here the other week when dogs froze to the fire hydrant that they were relieving themselves on.

I made some muffin bread yesterday.  God, I love that stuff and the corn meal on the crust.  The gummys took a loaf home with them.  I’ll have to make some more.  I’m still fine on the weight loss area. It’s holding (which is good) and not going up (which is better).  We’ll stay active until snow out and then all sorts of yard work will need to be done.
