We have a Nor’easter heading our direction. Not a good time for it considering that the dunes have blown away and some places just started to dry out. Yes, I am a wee bit obsessed with the weather right now. I think with good reason. So I guess we’ll get ready again for more rain and wind. The nice thing is that it has been dry enough so the ground can take some more rain without being super saturated. This morning we have some sunshine peaking through the clouds.
Football was a mish-mash. There were some calls that reminded me of some of the bone-headed calls earlier this year before these refs were back. And I thought there was an excessive celebration penalty for showboating after a touchdown. I swear some of the players have practiced their victory dance more than the rest of their moves. Didn’t do well with my picks but not too bad. And don’t talk the Giants out of the picture. I would call yesterday’s game a bad game not the end of the team.
Word count 5538 so I am less than 500 words off the target for yesterday. I hope to make that up today and a little more. I also got the kitchen floor done which made me feel good. Today laundry and 2000 word and I’ll be all caught up. I do need to get some milk for the household and cat litter. The local petshop didn’t get their usual deliveries last week. A lot of places didn’t.
Gas situation is not any better. The lines were long and the police were keeping the peace. I hope this gets sorted out before the next storm comes through.
Heating Oil is something else that everyone is trying to make sure they have especially since it turned so much colder over the last couple of days.
Cats are draping themselves over the couches so that the radiator warms their bellies.
The sky is an ugly grey. Pending weather which means I should get done what I need to get done today sooner rather than later.
We were having an interesting discussion about safe swears (things you can say around children and not have to worry about them repeating it). Some of my favorites are carp, duck butt, and Good Grief. What are yours?
I am grateful for weather that doesn’t put us behind the 8-ball.
