Ohhhhhh...A Little Birdie Told Me!

      YAY! It's Friday!!!....YAY! My head cold is clearing up!...except for a nasty cold sore on my lip now...UGH!...And YAY!! I see birdies! ^_^
      Even though the weather is in the single digits here in Massachusetts, the backyard birdies have decided that they want to play! :-) I'm getting cardinals and chickadees...non-stop!...and I'm loving the view! :-]
      I'm not the only person with birdies in my view though. Case in point, don't you just love that mobile in the header photo?!! ^_^ I don't know how any baby would be able to close their eyes with all that 'pretty' floating overhead!!
      And how could any little one even eat his or her lunch, with these little birdies to distract them?! :-) ...

      It's a lunch bag and a conversation starter all in one!! ^_^ ..."Wat r wu havin' 4 wunch?!" LOL

      Now comes the real reason I'm doing this post about birdies! :-)) It's all about a hawk!!...

      Isn't he BEAUTIFUL?!!!!...

      The reason I have hawks on my mind this morning is because of an Etsy convo I had with CHO yesterday! If you remember, I shared her cute twig and birdie earrings on the blog yesterday...HERE.
      I let her know how much I appreciated her cute birdie earrings, and in the conversation back to me she proceeded to tell me about the hawk she has in her backyard!!!...Yes, a hawk! :-) ... Then she told me that while she never sees him, her neighbor took pictures of him for her! :-) And she shared them with me...and said I could share them with you!! ^_^ ...

      Ahhhhhh!...He is beautiful!!!! :-) ...

      But as beautiful as he is, I'm glad he isn't in my backyard!...Why, you ask?!...Because she proceeded to tell me that he eats all of their morning doves!! O_O ... YIKES!!!...Think what a feast he would be having with my cardinals, black-capped chickadees, blue jays, robins, sparrows, etc...!!!...*gulp!*
      In the case with this 'pretty birdie', I think I prefer to admire him from a far! :-) ... And since she lives in Canada...a good ways away from here!...I think I'm good! ^_^ ... BIG THANKS, CHO!!! ♥
      Okay, now I'm off to make some last minute 'Virtual Date Night' plans. ^_^ I have no idea where we're going, but considering that I've been sick all week, we BETTER go somewhere!!!!!...just saying!! LOL

      Did you notice how I didn't mention the snowstorm that's coming by Monday?!...The snowstorm that's suppose to drop at least six more inches of snow on us?!...The snowstorm that may be putting my doctor's appointment next week in jeopardy?!...Hmmmmm...maybe that's why I didn't mention it!! LOL...Have a good weekend, Everybody! :-)

How Can You Be So Positive

"How can you be so positive
with everything so bad?
When folks are so unkind
and all those doctors make you mad?"

"It's easy!" I assure them.
'Cuz one thing makes it okay.
I wake up every morning,
and I'm breathing every day!

When I can't move a muscle
and can barely lift my head,
I think of all the folks I've known
who now are gone, yes, dead!

No matter what my problem is,
and if I stand or lay,
I'm thankful that my mind still works
and I'm breathing every day!

So how am I so positive,
When things sometimes seem bleak?
It's easy, 'cuz my breathing
keeps on going every week!

Oh yes, I have a choice!
I can be miserable and whine;
Be mean to folks around me,
Be demanding and unkind.

But who would make that choice,
when there's a better way to be?
I mean, who's breathing every day
and writing poems?...ME!

Things You Don't Know...And May Not Want To Know...About Me!

      Before I head off into 'word world', let me give you an update on my head's still here. ^_^ The good news though?...It's getting better! YAY!...Something you don't know about me is that I had pneumonia once, years ago, so every time I start getting a bad cold that produces too much mucous...*Sorry. Mucous is a terrible word, I know!, but it had to be said! LOL*...I start getting worried that my small tubes are gonna get clogged up, dry up, cause an infection, and I'll get pneumonia all over again.......and DIE!!! O_O ...Oooo!...That sounded kinda dramatic!........Forget I said it. :-))
       Moving on!! ^_^ ... Did you see those gorgeous rings in the header photo?!...I LOVE them!!...Something you probably don't know about me is that my husband bought me a wedding ring with a pretty design on it...and a separate 1/4 carat engagement ring...On our 20th anniversary he bought me another engagement ring to replace my original...this time over 3 carats!...but I refused to let him replace my wedding band!! I LOVE it!! :-) It reminds me that he had good taste over 30 years ago, in rings, and in wives! ^_^
      Isn't this mug (below) gorgeous?!...

      I love the butterflies! :-) ... Something you don't know about me is that my little 'baby girl' (my friend's daughter) gave me a H-U-G-E wire butterfly years ago. It was about 3 feet tall and wide, at least, and it had rolled wire everywhere. Even the boning of the wings had wire in that you could shape it in different positions.
      I wrapped the wire butterfly around the second floor apartment's balcony, where we lived at the time, and the butterfly hung there, welcoming people to our complex. ^_^ We got so many complements on how it made people smile on their way to and from work. It made us feel great!!...When the weather beat it to a pulp, and I couldn't find another one anywhere...*my 'baby girl' had found it at an out-of-the-way place*...the neighbor's would come by and ask what happened to it!! :-) ... I'm still on the look-out for another large wire butterfly! ^_^

      Now, I know you all know I don't own a dog...right now! But I love dogs...and dog clocks!...

       What you may not know is that hubby and I also LOVE Bengal tigers!...and we have Bengal tiger paraphernalia all over the house! ^_^ Calendars, art, framed post cards, a giant blown-up and framed photo of a Bengal tiger at the zoo, etc...We think they look like us! LOL

      On a whole 'nother species note: I also love my birds! I watch them every day out my window! :-) But what you don't know is that every since I heard about the 'bird flu' I have been a squeamish nut about hubby filling the feeder for the birds!...I make him put on gloves before he touches the feeder, and I watch him like a bird pun intended. ^_^ make sure he doesn't touch anything inside the house with his infected bird feeder hands!!! LOL
      And STILL I got a bad cold!! LOL Go figure!!...Clearly I'm delusional about keeping myself healthy!!...Oh Well! ^_^ Speaking of which, I spent last night with severe pains in my stomach, and throwing up!!...UGH! No, it didn't have anything to do with my head cold...I think I ate something that might've given me food poisoning!!...Sad!...Even with a finicky sometimes 'Howard Hughes' type, like myself.....THEY STILL GET ME, them germs!!! LOL 
      Painless, and with a slightly squeamish stomach this morning, I was thankful just to watch the birds eat!!...I'm 'tea and crackering it' for a bit! ^_^

      Last, but not least for's some flowers!....and buttons! ^_^ ...

      You already know I love flowers and buttons! But what you may not know is that I have some flowery buttons that I've been saving for special projects for my shop...BUT every time I start the special projects...I can't bring myself to put the buttons on them! LOL I convince myself that I have a rare button...sorta like that million dollar rare stamp that somebody found on an old letter!...and I can't part with them. "NO!! I could be throwing away my fortune!!" LOL
      Okay Y'all, I'm clearly back to my talkative self, right?!....Well, what you don't know is that I'm really good at talking, but not good at faking. I feel AWFUL!!!...Back to bed for me!!...But I want you to have a good day!!!! ♥

Hello Doctor

Hello Doctor! How are you?!
Me?!...I guess I'm doing fine.
Yes, I take my medication.
No, my heart has not flat lined.

Yes, I know I'm getting older.
No, I'm not a basket case.
Yes, I'm drinking all my water.
No, I'm not making a face!

Doctor, you are so funny.
Not 'ha! ha!'...The things you ask!
And I'm not sure how to answer.
Who knew questions were a task?!

Bye, bye Doctor! It's been nice,
like root canals done at the Mall.
Yes, I'll see you next go round.
No, I won't forget to call!

      Have no fear!...I'm still able to talk! LOL...Sorry. I had a bit of an 'Underdog' moment!! Ha! Ha!...Anyway!...I'm still working on this cold of mine...not the snowy cold outside! But this cold in my body!...which is now more of a head cold. I have an annoying cough, and stuffed head, but the fever is gone.
      I'm resting, drinking tea, and...'surprise, surprise!'...crocheting!! :-) Yes, crocheting!! I got a request from a repeat customer to make him two black lapel pins with clutch backs. So, besides staring out the window, watching the occasional bird, and coughing, I've been doing a bit of crocheting.

      I'm not quite feeling myself just yet. And I also have that feeling like my whole schedule is off, and that the 'get-it-back-together' wheels are gonna fall off any minute! ^_^ But I guess that's pretty normal for someone who hasn't done anything but eat and sleep for days! ^_^

      I'm gonna hunt around for something interesting to talk about...when I feel like talking, I mean...Right now....I'm sorry...but I feel like all I have is filler!...Thankfully my filler has words attached!! LOL
      In the meantime, don't mind me! Y'all go and have a good day! :-] Check back tomorrow just to make sure I'm still alive though!!! LOL You know I'll be here talking!...I can't be left alone with a pad and pen, or a typewriter, for long!!! LOL

When I am alone

When I am alone,
with just my pen and pad,
I can talk about myself,
whether I'm  happy, tired or mad.

When I am alone
all the words just fly
from my brain of 'Busy'-ness
to the sight-line of the eye.

When I am alone
there is no veiled conflict;
There is only what I think,
and my ball-point Bic.

When I am alone
I can just be calm;
and if there's  been a fight,
words can soothe like balm.

When I am alone
I confirm, with glee,
that I really like myself
and that "I'd  be friends with me!"

When I am alone
there's  no loneliness;
and what I am feeling
I don't  have to guess-
I just put down pen, and press!

Still Under The Weather....

      Yep...I'm still not up to par this morning. *meh* I was thinking that I might just not do a blog post this morning. After all, I'm only here to tell you why I'm not gonna really be here!...But, I decided to do the post because.....because....well...because I'm on a daily roll with this blog, and I don't wanna NOT do a post when I'm still breathing, and clearly still able to form a mental sentence and type!! ^_^
      But forming a mental sentence and typing is just about the extinct of my exertion today! I'm feverish, coughing, sneezing, wheezing, exhausted, and stuffy...Sounds like fun, right?!.....NOT!! But hey! least I'm sharing. ^_^

      Back to bed....peaceful MEH!...Have a better day than me, Y'all!....Waaaaaaay better!!! :-]

Peaceful Moments

Peace is what I'm after.
No concerns to vex my head.
No disturbing complications.
No emotions to be read.

Peaceful contemplation.
Mental 'Playing in the yard'.
No 'You have to do this!" wording.
Nothing strenuous or hard.

Quiet, simple peace.
No one's problems I should fix.
No concentrated effort.
No new wrinkles in the mix.

Yes, peace is what I'm after.
Nothing pressing me 'to do'.
I want peaceful little moments.
And I'm gonna get them too!

Sick, Sick, SICK!!

      ♫ "What a difference a day makes" ♫ ... So the song says, and so it is true! Yesterday I felt tired and sleepy, and had a sense of just not feeling quite myself...Today?...well...actually, ever since last night...It's been a symphony of...drip, drip, drip, cough...cough!...ACHOO!!!!...Ugh!
      So I'm not in the mood for much talking today. In fact, I have a bit of a fever, and I'm stuffy and drippy, and Ugh!!...Just be thankful that you aren't in the room with me, because I'm sure I must be all kinds of contagious right now!!...

      My hubby doesn't have a choice! :-)) He has to be the 'knight in shining armor' who slays the cold, vanquishes the fever, and entertains the cranky queen!....Uhhhh...that would be me! ^_^ Good thing he's not squeamish about getting coughed and sneezed on! LOL...Anyway! It's back to bed with me!....But you?!.....Have a good day, PLEASE!! :-]

Cough On Me

How do you know that you're in love,
and that you're right where you should be?
When you're holding your sick spouse
and thinking: "You can cough on me."

When they're burning up with fever,
needing tissue, soup, and tea,
and you wanna be their hanky.
"Woo woo woo...just cough on me."

When you really wanna share,
but all you have is sympathy.
Here's to you, my dear sick friend,
just for you...the coughs on me!

Biscuits On The Brain!

      I woke up hungry this morning. And 'no!', that's not big news. :-) That's not even 'surprising' news, considering that this is 'Pancake Sunday' and I usually start getting hungry for Sunday morning breakfast just as soon as I see that the weekend is almost here! ^_^
      The difference today is that I woke up hungry, not for pancakes, but for my mother's homemade buttermilk biscuits!! O_O I could almost taste them!!...Why is this so strange, you ask?!...It's strange because I haven't had one of my mother's homemade buttermilk biscuits for over forty years!!!
      But this morning I can see my mother in the kitchen, with her 'slide-on' bedroom slippers on her feet, and her waist apron...with flour all over it, from her wiping her hands on it. ^_^...And I see the can of 'Crisco' shortening, all white and looking like cake icing. :-) 
      She used to put self-rising flour in a big bowl, make a well in the center of put the shortening and buttermilk in...And then mix it all together, drawing flour from the sides of the bowl as needed in order to make a big dough ball. After that came the rolling pin action...

      ...She would put flour lightly on the pin, and on her hands, and beat that dough to a soft, but floured, consistency. Then she would pinch off a certain amount in her hands, and roll it around until it was even and smooth. Then she would put the ball down on a greased cookie sheet.
      After the pan was full of balls, at a measured distance from each other, she would mash them all down with her flat hand, leaving her three finger indentations on each and every biscuit! ^_^ When they baked in the oven they would rise a bit, turn golden brown, and smell absolutely delicious!!!
      They came out of the oven, hot, brown, soft in the middle, and with a crispiness to the outside of them....YUM!!! Perfect for blackberry jam, syrup, sausage, melted cheese, etc...And that's what's in my brain this much I sure could use some of my mama's homemade buttermilk biscuits this morning!...because I'm not in the mood for pancakes. :-)
      No one made biscuits exactly like my mother. NOBODY! Not even her mother, my grandmother!...My grandmother's biscuits were fatter, and more evenly round. I often wondered if she used a cookie cutter, or something, to make them. :-] And as often as I ate her biscuits too, they never held a candle to my mama's.
      Oh well!...I won't be having her biscuits today! And the only biscuits my husband knows how to make...come out of a Pillsbury Hungry Jack can!! LOL...They're good!!...especially how they bake with the layers of soft biscuit that you can peel off and eat!...but they still aren't the ones I grew up eating as a child!...

       So much for nostalgia, and hunger! LOL I guess I'll just have to appreciate the spiritual food I'm gonna be filled up with today, and let that be that! ^_^ ... Next Sunday I may get into a whole conversation about syrup!! ^_^ You just never know with me!

      What did you have for breakfast?! :-).........Have a good Sunday, Everybody!...And for those in this part of the world, dream of Spring! It has to be coming some time or the other!! ^_^ 

Quiet Sunday Morning

Quiet Sunday morning.
Flowers blooming in the yard.
Rain clouds overhead,
forecasting rain, but not too hard.

Quiet Sunday thinking.
All is well. No one is mad.
There's an easy state of being,
and a poem on my pad.

Quiet Sunday morning.
Music, chatting with my friends.
A perfect picture postcard,
or reality through my lens.

Let's Not Be Grumpy Today......Okay?!

      Don't look for anything too deep from me today!...I'm having a terrible case of 'jet lag' after our quick trip to the home of 'Big Ben' yesterday. ^_^ ... Okay!...That's not the real reason the blog is late today...The real reason is that I gave myself permission to sleep in late!...So there!! LOL
      It stops me from being a 'Grumpy Gal'!...

      No!...You don't want me to be a 'grumpy gal', do you?! ^_^ Then there would be no more snow photos, breakfast shots, crocheted flowers, or NUTTIN'!! LOL...Then there would also be no more of me talking my head off in written or poetic form! O_O ...Nah!...We can't have that!...for 'MY' sake!!!
      SO, in order for me to stay UN-grumpy, let's show off something pretty from Etsy...

      ...Lighten the mood around here...

      ...and wake up!!!!! ^_^

      I'll try to be more awake tomorrow, Y'all. :-)) Right now....I'm OUT!!!...But you all have a less than grumpy...non-grumpy to the hundredth power!...kind of day!! ^_^

Time Goes By So Fast!

Time goes by so fast!
It seems to fly just like the wind.
Before you eat your breakfast,
seems it's yesterday again!

You visit with some friends,
go to work and cut the lawn.
Then you look up from your book
and face another fleeting dawn!

You're planning what's for dinner,
jotting down the grocery list.
You wake up from a nap,
and now you're looking at a mist!

You're getting orders out,
fingers flying with your hook.
You lift your head to see
another day that light has took.

Time goes by so fast!
It seems to fly just like the wind.
Make the most out of it,
because it may not come again!

A Date In Fog And Rain?!

      Hello, from Massachusetts...where, if you don't like the present weather, all you have to do is wait a minute or two, and it'll change!! LOL 
      Yeah, that's my attempt at trying to 'make funny' about this crazy weather we're having! I complained and complained, for days, about all of the snow we were getting...and the ice on top of the snow!...*In fact, hubby almost had an accident last night because of slippery ice while it was sleeting! O_O*
      And the weather today?!....Well, it's as if  someone heard me complaining about the snow and ice and said: "Oh! you don't like snow and ice?!....How about some rain and fog then?!!"

      At least sintwister can make fog look nice! ^_^ But it's not gonna be good weather to travel in!...Tonight is 'Virtual Date Night!* :-)

      I have to say though, that I'm amazed at how much the woodpeckers and black-capped chickadees seem to enjoy this crazy weather!! O_O Or is it that delicious suet feeder mixture that has them all fat and happy?! ^_^ They sit and swing, and then chirp they're singing a happy song. :-)) Of course, the woodpeckers aren't singing!  They're either pecking away, or just sitting there on the feeder, or in the tree, sleepily looking around...

      Maybe the woodpeckers are thinking the same thing I am this morning: "What Next, Mr. Weather?!.....Locusts?!" :-))) ... Uhhhhhh.....we'll take the fog!! LOL...

      Speaking of which, all of this fog and rain gave hubby and I a good idea for our 'date night' destination!..........................London, England!! ^_^
    (Love Card by stilldez)

      YAY! for a night of good music and 'easy peasy eats'!! I mean, who doesn't like raindrops on the window pane, and bangers and mash?!...That's sausages and mashed potatoes, for you non-Englanders!! :-) ... We may even pull out our 'Beatles' album!! ^_^
      Okay...I'm off to wrap a package for shipping...*YES!! I actually got another sale in my shop!...a large one too!...5 items!! :-)* ... Then it's breakfast with my 'Honey'...who doesn't mind fog on our 'Virtual Date Day'. And I'm his kinda rain! LOL (with a nod to Tim McGraw. ^_^)...Then it'll be some staring out the window at the woodpecker...who will, no doubt, be staring back at me!! LOL...Have a good day, and a good weekend, Everybody! matter what the weather!! :-)

Rain Of Love

I sometimes love the rain,
and how it makes me think, again,
of our private time together-
(time I spent with my best friend).

There's something quieting to the soul
about the rainfall's pitter patter,
that makes your problems disappear,
and never really seem to matter.

Just lying cuddled on the bed,
talking softly, from the heart;
or sleeping through the thunder's rumble,
while the birds all flit and dart.

Is it normal to be smiling,
when the clouds are dark with rain?
(Maybe its just the perspective
of the twisted, wet, insane!)

At any rate-when he's at work,
and I am here, at home, alone,
and I see the drizzle starting-
I get him, quickly, on the phone.

I say:
"Hi Honey, what you doing?"
He says: "What else, but think of you!"
You see,he saw the raindrops falling,
and he didn't know what to do!

He couldn't drop his work and run!
He said he had to use restraint.
(And if he had, I would be shocked!)
But I admit-the thought was quaint.

Okay! So what? We're kind of strange-
We never want the rain to end!
But, before you judge us crazy,
watch some raindrops with your friend,
and then, just read this poem again!

Just A Casual Post.....HERE?!

      I had all kinds of things I thought I wanted to tell you about this morning, but when I thought about telling seemed like waaaaay too much talking to have to do...with my fingers! ^_^ You know, the same way it does when you have a dream that seems soooo real, and then you go to try to tell somebody about it...and it doesn't make sense any more! O_O
      And then you try to explain why certain things were the way they were in the dream, and why they didn't make sense...and then the dream starts to make even 'less' sense! O_O And then you try to fill in all the blank spaces and nonsensical things, and 'make it' make sense!...and then the dream not only doesn't make ANY sense, but it also doesn't seem real any more!! LOL 
      Well, that's the way my list of things to tell you went! ^_^ So, I'm not even gonna go there!! ^_^ Instead I'm just gonna keep it light and casual. I'm gonna share some casual wear, like the cute t-shirt dress in the header photo! :-] Doesn't it look comfy/cozy?! :-) And I really like the graduating colors of brown and black....and the boots! :-) I don't think the boots come with it though. ^_^
      And if you don't wanna be all 'up tight' about time, and you just wanna keep it about some clocks on your ears that don't really tell the time...but they tell a certain time, all the time! :-)

      Cute! :-) ... Yeah, that's the same kinda time I wanna be telling today!

      And suppose you're an artist who doesn't wanna 'have to' be doing anything, except painting?...Wouldn't this be the perfect photo on your wall, to tell everybody who you are, what you do, and what mood you're in?!...You're in the mood to paint!! :-) ...

      And then there's 'ME'! :-)) I wanna be casual too!...but my casual involves looking out of a backyard window and seeing NO SNOW falling! YAY! ^_^ Unfortunately, it only means that it isn't falling right at this minute!...Yes. We're due to get some more snow...a wintry mix they call it...a little later this afternoon.
      The other casual I usually am doing is napping. :-) And I do it well!!...In fact, why isn't there an Olympic napping sport?! O_O ... Not that I would enter!...I'd be asleep somewhere!! ^_^ ... But if I wanted to enter, I wouldn't need skis, a snowboard, a rock or curling brush, helmets, or bobsleds! This would be my accessory! LOL...

      ...A pillow!...with a soft pillow cover! ^_^

     Hey!!...You be 'YOU'!...and I'll be me!! LOL...

      Hmmm...when I look back at the post I still was a lot of talking! LOL So...mission NOT accomplished. was casual!! ^_^ Have a good and casual day, Everybody!! ♥


or cloudy days.
Getting counsel
to mend your ways.
Cuddling up,
or sleeping alone.
Sitting quiet
or talking on the phone.
Behaving yourself,
or being a brat.
Combing your hair,
or wearing a hat.
Being you,
or suppressing a cry.
Giving up,
refusing to try.
Either way
you've got to be you;
Living for others
it's too hard to do!

     Good Morning!...or 'Good Day', depending on where you live. :-) For me it's morning. Thus the balanced breakfast food...sorta kinda. :-)) I just had to share it because I have to say, once again, 'Etsians are so creative!!' ^_^ I marvel at the work it took to felt some waffles and fruit pieces!!
      I didn't start the post talking about what's going on with me today because I didn't think you'd be interesting in hearing about how long it took me to clip a hang-nail, or look at some more snow! ^_^ I figured sharing a few Etsy finds was a better use of space on the blog today. So here goes! :-) ...
     I suppose I also can tell you about the four sales I got in the Wuglyees shop last night! :-) YAY!!!...It feels good to know that somebody is still looking! I was beginning to think that my shop was becoming a good cricket hang-out! LOL
      I did do a little crocheting yesterday, amidst watching sports and eating. ^_^ But I only replaced some flower pins that sold. I've lost my creative spirit as far as my crocheting goes...I'm sure it'll come back in the Spring...when there's something else to look at besides snow, snow, and more snow. And chubby birds! ^_^
      In the meantime...*sigh*...I got nothing!! :-] Have a good day, Everybody! ♥


You teeter totter, in the middle,
Lean a little, OOPS! You're off!
Now you know that you're not balanced,
and you hope the ground is soft.

It's not easy to achieve,
and once you have it, to maintain.
In almost every part of life
our balance is so hard to gain.

You have to balance your emotions,
how you eat, and how you spend.
And when you're balancing your checkbook,
try to keep a level grin.

Staying somewhere in the middle
takes a conscious, careful touch,
because it doesn't take a lot
to go from balanced to 'too much'!

So try to keep a balanced eye,
 a balanced plate, and balanced life.
Keep your feelings all in check,
and minimize the stress and strife.

And don't compare your sense of balance
 to your neighbor''re alone.
Because your neighbor's also trying
to get some balance of his own!

Tuesday...Chocolates And A Movie Day?!!

        Hello, Y'all! :-) ... Don't you just love this little teddy bear plaque?! ^_^ It reminded me of my 'Baby Wuglyee'! :-)) And he's doing the same thing that me and 'Baby Wuglyee' are doing now too...because of the weather!...*Another 3-5 inches of snow today! UGH!!!*...He's ♫  'putting his arms in the air, and waving 'em like he just don't care!' ♫ LOL
      We give up!!!! Ugh! What do you want us to do, Mr. Snow?...Get down on the ground?...Put our hands behind our back?...Walk a straight line?...Close our eyes and touch our nose?!....What?...WHAT????!!!! ^_^
      Here's what ther backyard looks like right now...just as the new snow is starting to fall....Ugh!...

      We have snow...We have ice...We have ice under snow...We have ice on top of snow!!!...After today's snowfall, we'll have ice under snow, and ice on top of snow, and ice under snow and on top of snow, and snow on top of ice and snow!! LOL...Thus, a good day for chocolates and a good movie!! ^_^
      I've already been looking through the movie listings...Hmmm...What shall it be?!...I know what it 'won't' be! It won't be any movies with snow in them!!! LOL No "It's A Wonderful Life" or "Ice Age"!!!...I've got enough of that to see right here!...

      I could handle a chocolate 'Mounds' bar, and "Finding Nemo"! :-) I don't mind a movie with lots of water!! ^_^ In fact, a movie with some happy talking fish might be right up my alley today!! ^_^ 


I see that "The Rainmaker", with Burt Lancaster and Katherine Hepburn, is in the movie listing too!'s a movie about water...well, rain...but there's hardly any water in the whole movie!! LOL...Whatever! A movie about water, that has no water, would still be a good snow day, with a lot of snow, movie to see! ^_^


And Oooooo!...."The Notebook" is on today too!! :-) ... Water?!...Yep!...and a little bit of snow too. But it also has swans and stuff! :-) ... Let's face's  just a good 'lay-around-on-a-snow-day' kinda movie. :-)


Now all I have to do is get me some chocolate...and I'm good for the day! :-) Well, except for the cold I seem to be fighting...*drip, drip, drip*...What?!...You knew it couldn't be ALL good, right?! ^_^ ... Anyway!...Have a good snow day...or whatever kind of weather day you're having...Everybody! :-)


It feels good to be awake!
Eyes wide open. Brain cells too!
Now my mind and eyes need focus.
Let's go find something to do!
