which is where I seem to be right now
ad on a local radio station which always reminds me of how the other 99% of the world lives
"our house was so drafty and cold all last winter it was like living in a refrigerator. Why we had to wear two sweaters just to keep warm... " Poor babies. they couldnt just wear long underwear and slipper socks and a scarf and maybe a nice heavy down vest like the rest of us???
I know we are on the other side of winter here, because no matter how cold it really is at any given moment, or how high the snow is, we keep forgetting to feed the fiyahs. They get restarted a LOT now. I would say that psychologically wintah is ovah. Now if we could just convince the weather gods.
The light suddenly seems different. The sun now rises way over there instead of directly across the field, and of course its been sliding northward for 2 1/2 months, we just havent noticed. And in a very few days it will be the first of spring. (fist pump)
When I was a little girl one of my favorite books was one of Robert Louis Stevenson's, with charming 30s type pictures of little boys and girls playing with hoops and kittens and such...and one which always puzzled me--the poem for March (or spring, anyway) showed a little girl on a swing, green grass all around her, and she is wearing a little girl dress and a sweater...
I had no knowledge of Britain or different climates, and it was very hard to relate to that little girl on her swing, wearing only summery clothes outside in March...
Sorry about the lack of anything in here, i think im in brain freeze right now. no promises, no guarantees. Ill leave the cookie jar here and the coffee urn. help yourselves in the meantime
