Today I woke up to the smell of last night’s cooking odors – still got the house shut up tighter than a drum to keep out that North Wind. Get OOOOOUT!
This wind takes the moisture out of everything, my porch plants are all droopy and beat up, Biscuit is skittery. Yesterday I watched a late flock of honkers beat their wings against it, frantically going nowhere, circling again and again for another charge. I have watched them mount the Sierra, circling and circling for altitude, but this wind seemed to have them beat. They finally straggled off, having gained a group big enough to make a go of it.
I’m beat-up and straggly, and I’m staying inside today. I will have to satisfy my gardening urge with a trip to Belmont Rooster:
He’s been talking about some of my favorite flowers – lilac and viola. Purple viola grow wild here, my grandma had so many the scent would fill the yard in Spring. My neighbor’s front lawn is made up almost entirely of viola – she lives at a four way stop, and you can smell them in your car as you wait. Lilac is a wonderful smell too, a “grandma” smell. These are two flowers that don’t annoy my sinuses.
When I need a good laugh I go to Bloggess:
If you don’t find this woman and her friends very funny then my sympathies to you. Laughter is the best medicine. Are you up on your meds?
For more commentary on life, the man’s point of view, I go to MikeisHappy:
As Mike says, it’s okay, I don’t get it either.
Sure, I’ll be working around the house all day, but when I get bored, I check in with one of these guys, and then watch a quick episode of South Park, or Key and Peele, both of which are available free online. I know, they are both inappropriate as Hell, and you know that too!
All work and no play make Juanita bitchy.
