Do you ever go to peoples houses to visit and silently imagine knocking walls out, reorganising doors, rearranging their furniture and redesigning their lighting. I do. It is an affliction. I console myself with knocking holes in my own walls. I just don’t like walls very much you see.
When I was a child I dreamed of having a house with walls made like wooden blinds and in the morning I would just roll them up.
The round bale of hay arrived for the animals in the back fields. I fully expected the truck to get stuck in this field with all the swearing and growling that accompanies vehicles stuck in the mud, but I guess the ground is not that thawed yet. So it all went smoothly and the bale rolled obediently into its corner.
I understand Queenie, honey. I am the same. Once a perfect stranger came up to me in a train station years ago and said “Don’t worry love, it could be twins.” Then off he went. It took me YEARS to work that out.
Good morning. We had another day of the lightest snow yesterday. Not enough to be a bother and just enough to keep watering the fields. It has been above freezing for three days now which means we have been able to leave the pump out in the barn. Not having to carry that 60 pound pump in and out of the house twice a day and drag it across to the barn in the red wagon then carry it in and out of there makes life much more comfortable.
The forecast for today is for light snow and considerable cloudiness. I wonder who it is that actually writes these words, filing them into my internet weather report. These weather words that millions of us read and cling to, groan over or smile at. Who is this anonymous person. Stand up and show yourself and tell me why ‘considerable cloudiness’ was your word choice for today.
Have a lovely day.
