I blame it on the full moon and the fact that I came home practically radiating with bad intent. That must have been the reason he was on his guard and not curled in his self warming bed, as he always is. After 20 minutes of futilely trying to get my hands on the furry eel, I gave up and called the vet to cancel. The good news is, both Slimmie and I got a good cardiovascular workout.
My sister and I decided to postpone our trip, given the approach of the latest winter storm. Shouldn’t it be a spring storm? Aren’t we officially over this godforsaken winter? In any event, I am looking at today as a bonus.
There are two male cardinals duking it out, vocally, in two opposing trees. A definite sign of spring, as is the much-welcomed red wing blackbird. I’ve brought the birdfeeders in and will only scatter seeds randomly during the day. I am sure bear activity will be up with the warming weather. The tally on birdseed for this winter was approximately 150 pounds. I have about 20 pounds left and when that’s gone, it’s over.
If the weather is not too awful tomorrow, I will commence the dreaded process of looking for a new car. There is not much I dislike more. I’ve tried the online car gurus but they don’t seem to have anything registered closer than 60 miles for me. I think it’s a great service, as they break down whether the price that’s being asked is a good deal, great deal or a fair deal. I will just have to pull up my BGPs and plunge in.
