“I’d rather be a little weird than all boring.”

Weather: ditto!

Nothing on my mind today. No memories pop up and I have no new revelations about the world at large. Today will be the shortest musings in Coffee history.

Last night it rained as the sides of the street were still damp when I woke up. I’ve lost count of the string of rainy days. Noah probably had the same issue. He must have stood at the front of the ark after having fed the animals and mucked the stalls yet again and wondered when it would all end. At least I don’t muck.

That it is March already is amazing. The year is whizzing by me. I’m still waiting for winter and here it is almost spring. The garden catalogs are coming in, and, with Christer’s help, I’m going to order some different flowers for my side garden. I love flower shopping.

The other night was rainy and in the mid-30’s, and we all moaned and groaned about the cold. We have been spoiled.

My animals are all asleep. They sleep all night, get up with me, do a bit of business, snack a bit then sleep again. They have great lives.

I bought a new pair of wool clogs last week. That is quite unusual for me. I seldom buy clothes or shoes being quite content with what I have. This time, though, I had no choice. When I was walking out of a restaurant, the sole of my shoe stayed behind on the rug. I picked it up and brought it with me, hoping it would mend, but I decided that the hole in the toe of the shoe combined with a missing sole was cause enough for a new pair. Last summer I bought some new sandals, light-weight pants and shirts for my trip. For this summer’s trip, I’ll buy new underwear which would have pleased my mother immensely.

Well, I’m done!

    March has arrived with a vengeance in the Midwest. The weather man on TV explained that the water in the Gulf of Mexico is warmer than usual. (Could it be global warming?) That warm moist air then travels north and provides the energy for the super cell thunderstorms that breed these tremendous tornadoes at the point where the subtropical jet stream splits.

    Noah had 40 days of continuous rain but not one tornado was reported in the good book. Maybe god hadn’t created the super cell thunderstorm yet.

    Has anyone ever wondered how Adam and Eve’s two sons procreated the world without having an inappropriate relationship with their mother? A good question for the biblical literalists. If reincarnation is true I want to return as a dog in either a Jewish, or Catholic household.

    One of the great things my wife does for me is that she goes out and shops for my cloths. I wear a uniform during the week, supplied by my company, so she only has to buy my casual cloths. She always finds the best deals and knows what I like. Every time I go shopping I can’t find what I like for myself and just give up and keep wearing the old cloths until she throws them away. When I take a liking to a particular style or color, the manufacturers find this out and stop making that style or color on purpose just to annoy me.

      Bob, perhaps Lillith had some daughters those sons could have gotten children with 🙂 I really don’t like the alternative with Eve 🙂 🙂

      The same with the Atlantic Ocean-warmer than usual at this time of year.

      I decided a long way back that it was Eve who is the mother of us all: her sons and her son’s sons.

      I don’t think you can be limited by Catholic or Jewish. I have neighbors who are neither whose dog’s are worst spoiled than mine. One even has PJ’s for her dog. Gracie has no wardrobe.

      My mother always bought my father’s casual clothes as well. He’d pick out his suits and that was it.

        I consider anyone who considers their dogs as part of the family and doesn’t make them stay outside in a dog house the year round or stuff them and serve them for diner a good family to be adopted into in my next life.

    Cloudy and somewhat chilly here today, so we stayed indoors most of the time. The nights are pretty cold so the warmth of the day isn’t enough to melt the surface water in the ponds. Well it is still winter to be honest.

    I hope You can find at least some of the plants I’ve suggested. there are some annuals that self sows rather well too but those will come in my next mail .-)

    I bought new summer shoes and winter shoes last year and they did cost a small fortune so I really hope that they’ll last for quite som time now.

    Have a great day!

    • Kat Says:

      It was warmer this morning, and it is still cloudy and damp. Like yours, our nights are cold, usually 10° colder than the days.

      I have some seed catalogues, and I’ll go through those. I can also go on line to find some of the plants.

      You’re right about the shoes costing a small fortune. My new ones were over $100.00.

      Hope yours was a good day too!

    overcast here,high of 50 in the PNW.This head cold has me down & out today. So the couch & TV will be my entertainment today.

    • Kat Says:

      The worst thing is a head cold, but you have found the perfect spot where you can lie down and suffer!

      Feel better!!

    I’d like to know more about how Christer is helping with your garden. Is he choosing what flowers to put in? I know he gives great advice on his blog. I’m using one of his fertilizer techniques for my tomatoes which I hope to have planted by end of March.

    • Kat Says:

      Christer gave me a list of perennials he thought would grow nicely in my garden.

    Pick any house on my street or any member of my family!

    This reminded me of a line from an Emo Phillips stand-up routine:

    "Last year for Christmas I got some new underwear.  Well, new to me, anyway."

    I’m here, tired, but waving. It’s almost like summer or spring here. Jewels after her morning routine, which includes finally stepping on my face if I continue to doze, eats, gets her water and her litter cleaned and then goes back to sleep. In a few hours she wakes and wants food and to go outside. When she’s ready, she comes inside ( I go out with her to keep my eye on her ), and comes up to the bed to sleep some more. What a life.
    I am glad you didn’t trip when the soul of your shoe fell off.
    Sleepy waves,

      We have a tinge of spring as it has been too warm for winter yet not warm enough to be called spring officially.

      Gracie has been in and out all day. She runs around and caomes in with spit on her face: a bit disgusting.

      Nope, I just kept walking as if I hadn’t dropped the sole at all!
