The rains started last night and ended around lunchtime, then came the blue skies and super warm sun (12C, w-t-hey!) and then nice winds to dry everything up. I can see bits of lawn and our driveway gravel for the first time since early December, what a thrill!
Of course the snows move in again tonight so everything goes back to status quo (deep freezing winter and lots of more snow) but it was still so very nice to get a little break in the middle of February.
I'm almost rejuvenated :-D
OK that's enough about the weather.
I have a new fetish, the Bashkir Curly (or simply, Curly Horse). Am dying to pet one to see if they're as soft as they look! Plus they're hypoallergenic so that's a nice bonus. I wonder if anyone breeds them around here?
Vegas laughed at my bread the other day.
Said the loaves looked like slippers.
They were still tasty though :)
My friend N arrives tonight, can't wait to see her! It'll be a short girls' weekend but it's better than nothing. On the menu: midnight pancakes and then tomorrow chinese food. Possibly some scrabble games although she always beats my ass. I don't mind though :)
Five more days until Vegas comes home, he's promised to bring back loads of English loot (read: awesome junk food not available here) but it doesn't make me miss him any less.
So a few of my favorite bloggers have taken a hiatus (some permanent) from the blogosphere, which makes me quite sad. Almost like losing a friend. Boo.
Am taking recommendations for new blogs to read so please pass along some of your special ones, those you just could not do without!
On a parting note,
this sums up what I think about hunting
and the idiots who practice this barbaric "sport":
Have a great weekend!
