Hello everyone on this last day of March. And it’s Friday. Okay, maybe I’m not too excited about this being Friday. That’s just me. But I was sitting here this afternoon and looked out the window to see that it was…SNOWING! And not just a few lazy snowflakes. It was snowing heavily. It was hard to see across the street. This is spring.
At least, that’s what the calendar says. This is actually our third very late spring in a row. That does not normally happen. Normally the snow is gone by about April 7. At the latest. That poor robin I saw must be wondering why he bothered to come back. It is normal for robins to be back now. But there is usually some ground showing. Okay, there is a few patches of ground showing. But not much. Sigh.
Of warm weather. Palm trees. Sand. Ocean. Definitely not snow. I have been talking about winter since early October. Why? Because that’s when winter arrived with 9 inches of snow. That doesn’t usually happen. Our winters seem to be getting longer and colder. Sigh. But perhaps it makes summer even more enjoyable. That’s what I try to tell myself anyway.
Gone from cabin fever to spring fever. I think the spring fever is worse. She wants that door open. I gave in a couple of days that were nice and sunny. But, when the sun doesn’t shine, like today, she still wants the door open. She doesn’t understand that it’s too cold on cloudy days. I try to explain it to her. Doesn’t work out too well. So I’m wearing shoes inside now. Better protection. Except I discovered her sharp teeth can go right through my jeans. Easily. I’m running out of bandages again. But I’m doing my part in keeping that company prospering. Sometimes I think Muffin is working for them.
Don’t seem to be going over too well. Odd. Only one person was brave enough to answer this last one. It was a good answer. It wasn’t correct, but it was good. Oh well.
I tried. Maybe I should try singing. Forget it. You definitely don’t want to hear that. If I try that when I’m alone, Muffin covers her ears. Or she gives me something to scream about. She’s always thinking about me. Unfortunately right now she has her days and nights a bit mixed up. I go to bed. She wakes up. 1 am, she wants to play. I want to sleep. So we play for a while. That way I get to sleep. Last night I refused. She played extra loud. Normally she just plays quietly with her toys. Last night she was a terror. Running, jumping, crashing, scratching (on her scratching post and the mat by the door, which is allowed). So I didn’t sleep. Until she quit. Sigh. One of those days, I mean, nights.
My mind keeps wandering.
Hard to stay focused today for some reason. So I think I will keep this short.
And add a couple extra pics instead. I am really looking forward to spring. Real spring. With no snow on the ground kind of spring. And hundreds of birds singing. It does happen. Honest. Just seems like such a long time ago. Sigh.
Well, I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and God bless!
Steve and Muffin.
