In case you’re wondering why….
Who are you?
In case you’re wondering why….
Who are you?
When checking out at the grocery store last week I saw these….
I’m sorry, but no one needs Cardi B. flavored potato chips.
The woman wore a coffee filter to the Grammys. Enough said.
Something else no one needs?
I believe I actually said WTF when I first saw it.
Now come on…. if you have that much facial hair to catch?
Skip shaving altogether and put your beard in a pony tail like all fashion forward men do.
I think by now you all know of my lifelong aversion to dolls.
They’re creepy…. and if you don’t want me to spend the night? Put a few of them in the spare bedroom and watch me run.
This is the stuff of nightmares.
And speaking of that?
I was cruising Atlas Obscura a while back for an interesting day trip and their recommendation gave even me pause.
Yes, you and your significant other can visit the picturesque vistas of Turkmenistan and tour the Gates of Hell.
And if you think I’m kidding?
Admittedly…. as tourist attractions go, it’s a little strange.
But I’d still rather go there than back to Busch Gardens.
Well, if you live in Maine….
You have a snow sculpture contest!
That strange looking blob turned into this:
A goldfinch on a nest.
It gets my vote….
But here are some other entries.
Upside down snowman.
And a snow public health advisement…
Someone posted this as well …..
I love it, but have a feeling it was pulled off the net and not a local entry.
A+ for originality though.
Spring in Maine looks a little different than most places….
Because we woke up to this today.
We didn’t have nearly enough snow this winter, but now? Almost a flippin’ foot fell overnight.
Daffodils and tulips?
Not quite yet.
And because all that heavy wet snow knocked out our satellite feed and someone can’t stand to be without the news for 5 minutes?
At 6:30 am.
Looks like fun, no?
It’s time to take a look at my local Facebook page again.
And when I did, I realized how critter-centric it’s been lately.
Goats were on the loose again.
And apparently craving pumpkin pie.
This was a bit disturbing.
It’s not often someone is actively seeking deer guts, even around here.
Makes you wonder what this poor guy did.
“…for whatever purpose you would like.” probably doesn’t bode well for that bird.
And speaking of Sunday dinner –
As much as I’d like to come home to a nice meal, the thought of letting a stranger into my kitchen to cook seems a bit odd.
They might find that fuzzy, 11 month old spear of asparagus that got pushed to the back of the fridge… and that’s bound to be embarrassing.
And lastly, there was some news on the crime beat.
Because sometimes people can’t help themselves.
I really, really hate to admit it.
But every once in a while, the husband’s giant barn of
crap treasure will yield something useful.
Case in point?
That I found buried in a pile of scrap wood yesterday.
And not just any masks…. but the highly sought after virus blocking N 95 masks.
Treasure… in the barn!
Real treasure in these currently difficult times.
Now that the Virginia vacation saga is finally over, it’s time to clear out the photo files.
If you remember… before we left for the Cape Cod vacation in November, the husband was desperately trying to finish the remodel on our baby barn from Hell before the snow started flying.
He started putting the siding on….
Which was a nightmare of non squared corners and uneven ground.
Yeah, there was a lot of that.
His answer? Plant a shrub in front of it.
He was still using his 1950’s power tools and probably wishing for a larger wheelbarrow.
Siding around the window resulted in some very colorful language.
As did turning the 3rd corner where things didn’t exactly line up.
Unfortunately that’s as far as he got before the weather turned….
And now I have to stare at this split personality horror show until spring.
In other news, our neighbor and her daughter fed our deer while we were gone.
She sent me this picture while we were in Williamsburg, and wanted me to know the child took her responsibility seriously.
And for that she was rewarded.
Flowers for mom and a thank you deer for her daughter.
That little guy cost me a fortune but he was hand made and too damned cute to resist. Look at those feet!
It snowed right after we got back.
But the white stuff sure does make a nice contrast for the sunrise.
We were happy to see our resident buck was still around.
He’s an impressive fellow….
And clearly his women agree.
He’s got quite a little harem going.
With 4 fawns that we know of.
Funny thing is….. as much as I love to travel, it’s sights like these that always make me glad to be home again.
