SPRING HAS SPRUNG A LEAK, AND WINTER IS LEAKING BACK IN!
Yes, the temps dropped back into the 20s overnight, and the predictions for the next week range from dismal to bleak. For history geeks the latest date for a snowfall with accumulation (5″) was May 2, 1929. Now, there might have been later snowfalls prior than that, but that was the latest date my mother would ever confirm personally. Mothers you believe and trust (most of the time), but no one ever believes the weather bureau. Easter is April 20 this year and since I’ve seen snowfall on several Easters, I’m predicting that will be our last snow fall this year. So don’t put your snow shoes away yet.
Mlle. Renee says HUMBUG about the weather, and her perfect way for spending this Sunday is …
TAKING A NAP!
Renee received several pillows and a pink blanket from a friend of hers several weeks ago, and she is very possessive about them. She makes it a point to sleep on them every night and nap on them every afternoon. I’d probably be doing that, but I decided to write this and fix dinner. OVEN BAKED PORK CHOPS!
Unfortunately, she keeps getting wakened by the neighborhood dogs barking. Someone has apparently abandoned two collarless young bull terrier pups and they have been running around since Friday. They won’t let anyone get near them though. I called animal rescue, but they weren’t able to rescue them. They did have a merry chase running up and down the block after them though. I remember seeing someone walking them a month or so ago, but I have no idea who he was or where he lives.
NEW ADDITIONS: I’ve added a pair of battery-powered mini-lamps to my office work area. Each has 12 super bright LED bulbs. They were quite inexpensive, and they’re perfect for desktop photography.
I don’t know what the imaginary phoenix was supposed to look like, but this was a rather impressive fold. I used red folding paper because I wanted him to look like he was about to burst into flames. Gee, I wish I would have had some red/yellow two-sided folding paper left.
