Morning all, come on in and have a cuppa!
Have you fellow bloggers ever had a spell where you sit and stare at the blank Word page wondering what to write about? That`s been me for the past few days. It`s been a ho-hum kind of week here. The weather has been warming up into the forties but it`s still too ugly to really do anything outside. Not to mention that it drops down below freezing at night so all that melted snow turns into a curling arena just in time for morning chores! Thankfully I have so far stayed on my feet thanks to the spikes attached to my Muck boots.
The goats are gestating nicely but even they seem to have the February blahs. The ducks and geese have been getting into some nice skirmishes the past week or so, must be the longer days are making the gangers and drakes a bit more aggressive. I`ll take their behavior to mean spring is on the way. I did go Tuesday to get my birthday shopping done for Miss Yodeling. Since she does read this on Facebook I won`t spill the beans about what she got. Nyah! *Sticks tongue out at nosy teenager*
Although I did have a moment of aggravation as I was driving to Wal-Mart.*Tugs out soapbox*
Why is it that some people just don`t think that the speed limit is fast enough? Can someone explain that to me? Is it really that important that you get to wherever it is you`re going two minutes earlier? Does your rush justify whipping around a person who is doing 55 (Which is the speed limit on this particular road) and nearly slamming into an oncoming on a wickedly curved country road? Do the words SPEED LIMIT really mean anything? Honestly this yahoo tore around me on a lethal curve and nearly wiped out not only himself but me and another car. I know that I`m getting old and all but is losing your life, the life of your passengers and the lives of innocent people worth getting there three minutes sooner?? Okay, I`m done ranting about idiotic drivers with needs for speed. *Steps off soapbox*
Today I was supposed to ride along with my mother-in-law up to Sayre so that she could have her final checkup on the carpal tunnel surgery she had. Actually I was kind of looking forward to it since, as I said, this has been a ho-hum week so far, but my brother-in-law Elmer (Actually his name is Jeff but somehow he became Elmer) has her car and volunteered to drive her up. So instead of gadding I`ve stripped the beds and am doing laundry. Oh the excitement of my life I tell you! Ah well I suppose we need these quiet times don`t we?
So what`s been keeping you guys and gals busy of late???
