Wednesday Morning

The sun is hanging low in the sky. Most trees are bare. Food sources are starting to get scarce for the birds. My ever faithful cardinals, chickadees and sparrows are joined by woodpeckers and nuthatches. You can hear the Blue Jays crying from the trees around my place. You see them occasionally when and if they decide to fly in to feed and to show themselves. They are beautiful to look at in their coats of shades of blue.

It’s not the lonely time of the year out there. Winter hasn’t officially arrived according to the calendar but it has none the less in central Minnesota. I look outside and I shiver from the cold. It’s a time now for my flannel shirts and my fleece vests to stay warm whenever I venture outside and particularly when I take my little beastie outside. She wears her coat and I wear mine. She’s doing really well when we take short walks but she’s still a pup that is easily distracted. I think she will make for a good walking partner to keep me company when I stir my stumps to get my daily steps in.

Now to teach her to walk down steps in lieu of me having to carry her.

Five for Friday

It’s way past the normal time to post this. Let’s see what’s left of my brain.

  1. I’m just glad the work day is over and I wish the regular day would be over. It’s been one of those days.
  2. My beastie is having some intestinal issues which is causing me and her stress. There will be a call to the vet tomorrow and more than likely a visit to her as well. I fed her some plain white rice tonight and she will fast for the next 12 hours when I’ll repeat the white rice for a meal.
  3. It’s cold out there and it is forecasted to be even colder tomorrow. Brrrrrrrrrr!
  4. I need to get my Turkey Day menu settled tomorrow and gather up everything that I need for dinner.
  5. This is just one of those nights to lay around and watch some mind numbing TV.

That’s it. Feel free to comment and/or wave a vigorous “HOWDY!” on your way thru if’n you would like.


Here’s the person most likely to cause me to vote Democrat for the rest of my life. God forbid that for one moment that I would consider voting for Hillary or Beto; but, I’ll make an exception if either would end up running against this fool in 20224.

Tuesday Morning

It’s dark and cold out there this morning. It’s a rather balmy 28F (-2C) out there right now. There’s a 70% chance of rain to go over the top of that icky bad white stuff that fell from the sky yesterday. Yeh. It’s a good thing I work from home. I can just imagine how the roads around this part of the Hundred Acre Wood will be like when you add rain to the mix. It’s a good day to stay home where it’s warm.

My beastie loves the icky bad white stuff. I need to take some pics of her in that stuff but I keep forgetting my phone. I have to keep an old towel by the front door to dry her off since she has low ground clearance. It’s funny watching her experience it. She’s just like a kid when it snows.
