Hell freezes over – My small pond froze over. You need to keep an area open so gases can escape or you will lose your fish. My bubbler, which should do the trick, was throwing the water too high. That resulted in a pretty ice sculpture but a frozen pond. I was surprised at the speed that very hot water can melt ice even in very cold weather.
Yikes? – We have extremely cold weather here in eastern US. Early in the week the thermometer said 11 degrees as I embarked on my errands. I was walking into the grocery store when a young (30-ish) woman was coming out. She had a winter jacket on with Capri pants and….wait for it….scuff slippers. They were a summer version, very thin sole with a fluffy (but not warm) band of Barbie pink feathery fluff. No socks. My toes curled up in my fur-lined shoes. Oh yes, there was snow on the ground.
Wrong number – I get bizarre email all the time but this week outdid them all. The NRA (yes that’s in National Rifle Association) sent me updated information on my member benefits. I’ve never been a member. I don’t have a gun. I shot clay pigeons a very long time ago. Those are round discs made out of clay or something like it. It never was alive. The interest didn’t last and I have no idea how they got my email address. I’m expecting a note from the tea party next. I’m a cuppa joe kind of girl.
Family get-together – We are getting together as an extended family this evening. If I’m lucky, there will be some great stories and if I’m not, there will be great food. It’s win-win all the way around.
Addle-brained – I keep notes during the week so I can pull this collection of non-stories together on the weekend. I find that every week or so there is at least one item that I can’t remember based on my notes. This week the note said “titles.” Not a clue!
So how was your week?
