Breaking my silence

Posted on

I haven’t been blogging much lately and I blame the weather.

We’ve had snow and freezing rain almost every day since November. It’s been brutally cold since November. There have been about 5 sunny days since November. Okay these might be slight exaggerations but they’re not too far off. People who actually like winter are fed up!

If this keeps up I’m going to throw myself under a snowplow and end things once and for all!

Time Management

Posted on

Time seems to fly by so quickly these days that I’m finding it harder and harder to get anything done.  Work, laundry, house cleaning, groceries and the biggest time consumer of all getting dressed to go out in the cold, leave little time for fun things like painting and long dog walks.  I know it’s probably an age thing but it would be great if I could just make time stand still for a bit…

or maybe my dog could help around the house now and then…

I can’t believe it’s that time of year again, the time has gone by so fast.  I’m still waiting for the leaves to fall!  There just never seemed to be enough time to do anything so a lot of New Year’s resolutions are in order!

Bad weather and under it…

Posted on

I’m just getting over a cold and it’s all because of the crazy weather we’ve been having.  One minute it’s mild and raining, the next it’s bitter cold and snow.  I just can’t seem to get warm these days.  With everything I wear you’d think I’d be nice and toasty, but no I’m always freezing.   And all that clothing weighs me down, holding my dog up on his walks.

…they’re safer in a china shop

When I looked up matador’s costumes for this illustration I got more than I bargained for.  I got the costumes all right but I also saw a lot of bulls that were suffering or dead.  There were pictures of matadors who have been injured in the ring as well.  They were pretty gruesome but I wasn’t as horrified as I was with the ones of the bulls.  Not only are the bulls getting mutilated, they’re being teased and tortured at the same time.

I find it pretty hard to see the entertainment in bullfighting.

splish splash WE were taking a bath…

When my dog has a bath I’m right in there with him.  His baths used to be the regular way with me on the outside of the tub until one day I was lifting him out and nearly dropped him.  I’m not sure how it happened, whether he was too slippery or squirming (in his quest to escape) but I didn’t want to take that chance again.  The only solution was to get in as well and carry him out with me.  However it’s not much of a bath for me as I’m fully clothed in a t-shirt and shorts…I’m more of a shower person anyway.

They had to shut our water off due to a broken water main.  Luckily it didn’t take long to repair but it made me realize how much we take water for granted once we don’t have it.waterless©sig
