Per Linda:  Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “dress.” Use it any way you’d like. Have fun!

 

Dressed with the transparent reflective pearls, our new picture graces our Saturday pages. Only Nature can put on a spread appropriate to every day of the year. She is the dictator of our clothing. This weekend we will be donning bulky sweaters in the day and an extra blanket at night. Dress with less, and you are sure to be nipped by Jack Frost.

Speaking of dressing, our trees are completely naked. Just two short weeks ago, they were full of mostly green leaves. The yellow of Fall came and went within that quick season. And though I love the blue sky of Summer, blue sky Winter is ferocious! Without cloud cover, the temperatures dip to the teens and below. Without rain or snow, the landscape is prickly, yellows, and browns. Our desert doesn’t have cactus or those wonderfully spooky Joshua Trees. We have just a landscape of sagebrush and sky. Both beautiful in all seasons, but at times best seen from the comfort of shelter.

Playing around with words with ‘dress’ I found this humorous and somehow applicable to the subject:  With the addressability of ambassadresses in sweaterdresses, this climate only works for the rich as they can slip into vehicles or homes well heated. Even with the ankles left undressed frostbite won’t attack them due to less exposure than the poorly attired. (Where were Google Words when I played Scrabble?)

Ah, but I bore of the subject of the weather of my address. Ennui, sweats is my dress. Guess I had one more thing to readdress.

 

September Snow


On Hath day!

(Thirty days HATH September,

April, June, and November,

All the rest have thirty-one

Save February which has twenty-eight, and in Leap-year twenty-nine.

That’s how I remember it.

Anyway, this swing-shift sleeper didn’t get up for the full snow yesterday. This is all I got:

Little patched here and there .

Today Chris has a doctor’s appointment (shoulder recheck, I think) so I got up early to help him).Here’s what I saw:

A Fall Wonerland.

Old Bones and Joints Affirirm


 

And the trees that were green last week look like this:

The chickens have leaves to search under.

But they don’t seem to mind.

The coming cold and storm from Alaska make the barometric pressure change drastically. Which means I can barely move. Proof? Here:

Still, the child inside can’t wait to see the snow!

Snowmageddon Continued 20190227


This morning:

At five when we all deserted the living room and the binging of Brandon Farris It was so thick any picture would look like a big blur. Tonight, when I took Kali out the snow on the porch was higher than my crocs. No socks wetness seeped in. Ugh! But the snow was big beautiful flakes that I don’t think my phone would pick up. Take my word for it.

Now because I brought it up, enjoy: (It’s supposed to be Brandon using Google Translate to bake a cake.)

 

Free-form Friday 20190215


While my friends in Carson City and Reno were showing me their sudden snow and near blizzards, I took this out my front window. It was windy but we didn’t get the snow predicted either yesterday (except that sideways bit around midnight) or today. Forecasts yesterday for the 10-day had us under snow except for Sunday and Monday. NOW we have no snow until next Wednesday. Life is looking good!

Meanwhile, still making toys and hats and nearly finished with my brother’s first sock! I know once the weather is warmer I will be out walking. And I think the chair yoga with Adrienne and gentle chair yoga that I do with my husband should have me ready to get out there more. Then knitting will be done less often.

You know, I often get discouraged in that I expected this part of my life to be like the Jetsons. We don’t have folding flying cars. We do have robotic vacuum cleaners and video phoning. I can talk to two friends and at the same time! Even when they aren’t in the same location. I can talk to my adult children on holidays even though the roads make it impossible to visit in person. Today was one of those days when my friends and I chatted for hours.

Our newest idea? To try and communicate to each other in Spanish, even if it is only in written form. One of the friends was in Guatemala for a few years so she is far more advanced but rusty. I have blogged about learning from Duolingo. I’ve dropped all but Spanish and German. At one point I was up to Japanese, French, and High Valarian besides the other two. But I felt I wasn’t doing any of them justice. I can’t give up on either Spanish or German as I have had classes in each. The trouble is I often translate to the wrong one. Die-s and la-s and Der-s and el-s get messed up.

My goal is to keep my mind alive. If I can learn to communicate well with others in these other languages all the better. My biggest dream/nightmare is when my mind goes and I’m trying to communicate with the nursing staff I end up saying something in either or both those languages instead of English. LOL! Okay, maybe not so funny if I really need to say something important like my head hurts or I have a broken leg.

Anyway, I think I need to go to the library and pick up something about letter writing in either language. Any suggestions? Have any of you done the Duolingo or another system of language learning? How’s your weather? Is it Spring yet?

October 21 2017


The weather app on my phone said late-night snow. At midnight ‘outside’ stars in the sky.

Seven o’clock wake up:

Christmas decorations are up at stores too soon. Maybe this is the result of ‘Wishing for a White Christmas’ happens before the last leaves fall from the trees prior to Halloween? It is now 10:35 and the snow is melting. Rain makes icky mud!

The Groundhog Was Right


Just when you thought it was safe to go into the water…

See the buried gas can?

Front steps and where the ladder bridged that small stream.

Should have gotten out the ruler–I think it is about 3″ just since 4 AM.

So that was our wake up this morning. Kali loved it no need to carry her over the water. She ran around making trenches before settling on a new spot. Brother managed to get to work but came home within a couple hours.

As pretty as it was this morning, the wind is back with a vengeance. Clouds in the west are heading this way… probably rain. My rainboots come tomorrow–if the UPS guy can get over the coming creek!

Ugh! Weather!


Just to make a blog about it–I’m not blogging today. The weather is hurting me. I’m going to curl up in that corner over there—–> and sleep and knit until I feel better. That’ll bring me to Stream of Consciousness Saturday. I expect a deluge!


Weather’s Influence on Fibromyalgia Symptoms. This.   I have a barometric pressure app on my tablet. Yes, it tells me the weather, the temperature and forecasts. My favorite part is the BP part. I don’t look at it much, until I start hurting very badly. Then I check and see if the BP is the cause. Sure as the world, the BP looks like a roller-coaster. On the other hand, if I am having a great day, I can look at the BP and it is close to flat-lining. So these studies are erroneous.
