Only at Starbucks – Earlier this week, as I drove into my local Starbucks the entrance are was blocked by two cars parked at weird angles and three guys running around with their arms flailing. At first I thought there may have been a fender bender between coffee craving addicts. On second look, I saw that one car and three guys were flagging the other car which had driven out of the parking lot with his coffee on the roof of his car. I thought that only happened on TV!
All prepared – The weather folks have been ranting all week about a huge storm crossing the country. Some areas have been hit hard. The forecast for our area changed several times as the storm track moved. It was doing a dance as it came east. A little further north, slow down, speed up, do-si-do, swing your partner, sounds like a line dance I don’t do well. Snow has started as I write this but is expected to change to rain at some point. We’ll see how it goes. Bird feeders are full, pantry stocked. Books on hand. Prayer said to the electricity god. We’re good no matter what happens.
The end to that story – It’s Sunday morning and the storm petered out here. We got snow but it changed to rain early. I can see the grass through the snow. Better still, the roads were just wet so I did my Starbucks run. If the cold snap isn’t as harsh as they say, I’ll be happy!
Down the rabbit hole – Over the past couple of months I have received emails from people who may be distant relatives. We go back and forth checking for a match up. I had one very successful one. My cousin’s granddaughter contacted me. She lives in another state. I knew from the pictures that she belonged in the family. She looks a lot like her grandfather. One other contact may be very distant going back to the early 1800’s. The others didn’t pan out at all. I still find the research interesting and this is the perfect time of the year to go back down that rabbit hole and work on my family tree. I know there was a Neanderthal there somewhere. I intend to find him!
So how was your week?
