We’ve had really cold weather. REALLY COLD! (Yes, I know. All the eastern US bloggers have been whining for weeks. It’s been zapping our creativity.) We had a break this week. The break brought a cloud of robins to de-berry my holly plants. There is no other word to describe 100 birds flying together. It happens every year. I love to watch it. The cats love it too. Gracie (youngest cat) almost got a concussion from head bonks into the window trying to “help” them. My plants were de-berried in less than a half hour! Then they pooped red berry poop in the bird bath. As a courtesy they got rid of the remaining crab apples too. Gotta love the birds.
I was awakened by a bright light at 5:30 a.m. the other morning. I wasn’t sure if it was St. Peter at the pearly gates (assuming that’s where I’d go) or a lightning storm in the bedroom. (I was going to suggest a zombie apocalypse but that is sort of far-fetched.) It was the beloved husband using a flashlight to go to the bathroom. He heard a cat barf during the night and didn’t want to take the chance of stepping in it. I heard it too. If you’ve ever heard a cat gag you don’t forget it especially if you are barefoot. I knew exactly who it was and where it happened. It’s never dull in a house with a bunch of pets. Any pets.
Unscented products are the “in” thing. Scent isn’t good for you. It’s made of chemicals and all that. Causes skin rot, toe jam, swamp ass or something equally gross. My problem is that I have a great nose. I love good smells. I like the fresh smell of a shower and a soft smell when you lather skin lotion all over. I can remember the smell of Jergen’s lotion from my youth. I bought a new body lotion recently and it’s unscented. Smells like a cross between wet grass and wet dog. I’m going back to the good smelling stuff.
How about you? Any odd thoughts to add?
