These are random musings of my life journey, the people, animals, places, and events which have woven, and continue to weave, a tapestry that is me. We all know there is no real destination, only the ongoing experiences which blend together, creating the trail. Each step gives a glimpse of what is to come, without allowing me to see the end result. It is exciting. I have a home base that is mine, that gives me a place to rest. This is it. This is where my heart is, no matter where I journey...................

Best laid plans ....

.... and all that jazz.

When I saw the weather forecast for the weekend, I was excited, because it was nice, mid-fifties all weekend. My plan was to clean house yesterday (I did), then today I would brush and trim the dogs, followed with a bath for each. I need mild weather for that, because I do it on the deck to minimize the loose hairs in the carpet.


While the temp is 53° out there, perfect for working on The Kids, the wind is blowing. The weather station says it is blowing around 11-15 mph (depending on which site you look at) and gusting between 23-28 mph. Translate that into wind chill, and it is too much. I could dress OK with a windbreaker suit I have, but my hands would freeze.

And tomorrow? Temps in the upper 40s or low 50s, windy and with a ix of rain and snow showers. Ick! I'll be at work, so it isn't a big deal, except it will be dreary, and I don't do dreary.

Anyway, now I have to replan my day.........


Now I guess I'm doomed to sit in the house today and read.

Darn, life is really tough.


  1. I finally had to give my little dog a bath the other day. I couldn't stand him any longer. I ran the heat up and sweated until he was dry.

  2. Sitting around and reading, huh? Its a tough job but somebody has to do it.

  3. And you'll most likely have to put your feet up too, how awful for you Lyn! HeHeHeHe!!
    I like to brush my girls outside too. Ruby sheds something awful!
    Love Di ♥
    P.S. Enjoy your day.

  4. Linda, that's not necessary here. My little guys are happy to roll up in a towel and snooze till they are mostly dry! Correction - after I towel them down, they speed around the house for a few minutes as if showing off how clean they are, then come to me to be snuggled up in a cozy dry towel and sleep. :)

    MM, I know, I know. sigh. ;)

    Di, I wasn't sure about the feet, but now that I have permission, I will! And I am enjoying!

  5. Very tough. Being forced to read all day. My heart bleeds for you!

  6. I think you should make your day worse by having a nice cup of hot chocolate and some treats! then you can REALLY feel bad hehe!

  7. Friko, I have the strange sense that you're not sincere!! What's with that? ;D

    Jenny, I actually did! LOL!


If you have something to say about it, just stick out your thumb, and I'll slow down so you can hop aboard! But hang on, 'cause I'm movin' on down the road!!! No time to waste!!!
