Good bye January..see ya..in eleven months. So long to your bitter cold and gloomy days and long nights.
Yessiree I have all my shopping done for the birthday boy ..I told him to pick out some model train stuff on the Internet and I have been intercepting the shipments. That is truly my kind of shopping.
We got just a skiff of snow since yesterday..the sun is out this morning..it was a little chilly this morning –8 F or –22C. It may have been colder..I did not get up at the crack of dawn.
The bunny rabbit was here, scrounging around the bird feeders. I feel sorry for her/him..but if I set up a feeding station with alfalfa and cracked corn it will make them easy prey for Fox, Owls and Eagles..so I find it more humane to let them fend for themselves. Something was hunting in our area yesterday, Chance sniffed the air..grabbed the ball and went to the door.
I have been taking a Vitamin D tablet everyday for a month, the consensus is that it is not making me less cranky. The pill that is supposed to make me more sun shiny is not working. If anything my crankiness has been accelerated. Have you noticed that when people say “Hi, How are you?” It is really just a polite thing..they don’t really care..so if you answer “Well, I am really cranky, thanks for asking.” They look at you like you have three heads…although some of them laugh out loud…I think those are the really cranky people..I just have the nerve to say what they are thinking.
What do you think? Is it better to sugar coat what you think..If someone asks you something should you lie..or tell the truth?
How are you this fine day? “Cranky, really cranky..”
Hi..I haven’t seen you in a long time, what have you been up too? “Well apart from trying to stay warm..I have been busy putting the finishing touches on my crankiness.”
Or with a phone solicitor. How are you Madam? “Cranky”..sorry to hear that.. how is the weather up there in Minnesota? “Freaking cold and gloomy.” Sorry to hear that too..what do you enjoy about Minnesota? “The one month of summer that we get spread out over three months.” :)
