I've had this violet for 14 years or so, and it hasn't bloomed for a while. It's nicely decided to share its color with us during these frigid winter days. It's been a crazy week--subzero temps with snow and the promise of major nastiness tonight and tomorrow. We have been busy every day at the store-- I can't imagine that there isn't a house in this town without an overflowing pantry. Just how much milk and bread does everyone need? But my boss is happy.
We got our first real snow of the winter. Personally, I could have done without it. I like snow in December, then I'm just ready for spring. I suffer from sun-deprivation depression, so this time of the year I just count the days and watch for the sun to get a bit closer. I wish I could say I appreciate the beauty of it, but I just see a cold walk to work (only 3 blocks, thank goodness) and a hassle trying to do anything that needs done outside of the walls of my house. Even taking the trash to the curb for pickup. Maybe that just means I'm getting old!
I was eating pistachios and threw the shells in the trash. They were both watching intently the whole time. This is what I found when I turned back around. I pull him out, he jumps back in. I guess I best watch what I throw away if he's going to start doing this. Hopefully, it'll be a passing interest!
Going to vent here for a moment. I don't understand people, I really don't. They shun something that has been proven safe and can save a child's life, and refuse it on gossip and rumors. I have a niece with a blood disorder who can't be vaccinated and now she isn't safe because a celebrity yelled "autism". Not a doctor, not a scientist. And then people like Pat Robertson think we should just go back to the dark ages. Urgh!
It's amazing how much the boys have grown since we brought them home Christmas week. They have been a joy and since we adopted them from the Humane Society they were extremely socialized and they bonded with us quickly. They seem to have reached their "teen years", though. Sleep all day and play all night!
The babies got a good night sleep and now they are terrorizing my (still messy from Christmas) office. They stopped and posed for me for a moment, trying to look all innocent. Now they are walking all over my desk and keyboard. This is taking much longer to type than it should! Oh well, I knew what I was getting myself into when I brought them home. And they really have settled in nicely.
