Stay in Lane

I got nuthin'.

It has been cold, below freezing, and gray. Today? It's cold, above freezing, and gray. Plus drizzling.

There are no dead animals to report. Chickens, rabbits, cats, and dog are all alive.

There is no Christmas news, as I don't celebrate that holiday. I do need to bring something green into the house, though.

I've posted some photos over at Back Roads Harrison County.

I'm depressed and weary.

You know, all the usual December stuff.

These are photos of the front moving through last Wednesday, bringing in the freezing temperatures.

This field is just south of us. The house in the distance belongs to Danny Boone. Yes, he is a descendent of that Daniel Boone. Our town was platted by Dan'l's brother, Squire Boone in 1816 and I live in Boone Township.

(An interesting tidbit of history. The town was originally divided into four parcels, [intersecting where the 4-way stop is now,] and each lot was owned by a William Something.)

Soon, there will be another Habitat for Humanity house built neckts door, in that field.

I am imagining that my view from the kitchen window will change.

Yes, the Midwest is getting the usual grey nasty weather about one month early this year, isn't it?

I'm glad there are no casualties among the Fur People.

Yes, bring green in the house! And remember, solstice is coming, and the days will start lengthening again -- it's my very favorite celebration of the year :)

Hi Fuzzarelly,

I'll meet you for a imaginary vacation later on today. You pick the time and place.

Hugs, Euphoria

While I respect H4H, they screwed up my view too.
I am declining the company xmas party. Now I have to go talk to my supervisor. As if I weren't in enough trouble, and the season didn't suck enough already.
But we got light fluffy snow today, with all those perfect eighth-inch six-pointed flakes.

I just wanted to say thanks for inspiring me to overdye. I put green yarn in a bath of orchid and canary and it turned out well. Never wooda thunk it.
