have just returned from my graduation ceremony and dinner out - what a really, good, awesome day!!
We're going to watch either The Hobbit or Les Miserables tonight. TKD tomorrow morning.
Sadly, we're going to celebrate the start of spring with another 6-8" of snow, according to the weather bastard.
Road trip back from NC a few days ago. Wife was driving while I watched.
Can't we go out to our appointments for the weekend and stay at home at the same time? I'd love to spend the weekend sleeping like a cat, but it's not like I'm going to the same places where I go in weekdays!
Expecting heavy snow here too.
Not easy being the last person, very short lived. Be back in a few minutes.
Have I mentioned that I am sick and tired of the stinking SNOW? It's freaking SPRING already! Let's have some SUN SHINE!
:lol: And so a new profession is born .
He's to blame for the weather, right? Why can't he get it right? It's spring. Make it warm. Very simple.
It was with a little sadness that I saw what the Forestry Commission had done to my old teenage 'stamping ground':

I felt a bit like Treebeard confronting what Saruman had done to the edge of Fangorn Forest, for I had known these trees when they were very young.
Lovely place. Shame about the trees. And the erosion from not having trees.
They will be planting again, I am sure; the Commission manages woodlands throughout Britain and has regular cycles of planting and 'cropping'. It is a shame as the wooded slopes were especially lovely in the autumn when all the leaves were oriflame, gold and russet. I was a bit surprised as the locality is listed as an area of outstanding natural beauty but I suppose I can take comfort in the fact that I shall see a new generation grow and flourish.
Similar story for the fields and forests that used to be behind the house I grew up. Subdivisions now. It sucks.
Lovely -2 degrees C out of the wind this evening. Fresh . A real shame the snow isn't sticking here - for some reason the area has it's own micro-climate and it's too warm .
Pretty much the same here--18F and blowing light snow.
On a wine-tasting tour with girlfriends. Is it bad that I'm tipsy at the first winery?
Not right now ... but it may turn out bad tomorrow .
Hopefully it's a bus tour.
As long as you're not driving, go for it.
A black mood engulfs me tonight with even greater strength than of late.
Note even this, which usually fires my blood, can lift my shoulders:
another group I had not heard of....I have gone from the Old World for far too long....
I realized that
a) I should not mix cheap wine with generic cola and brandy....that is not a good combo to wake up to. (I also have to restock the wine cellar...before tomorrow...no booze in Bama on Sunday, not even in restaurants...)
b) I forgot to take my handful of vitamins this morning....
c) I really need to do a few things before I submerge myself in my stories (no, not soap operas...gosh, they curl my toenails upward)
but then again, the stories are pulling me in
(Mark, mate, would you object if I created a character in my fantasy young adult story, based on your wisdom? He could be the awesome sword master....or the sage on the mountain top - but I need a name, I already have a Mark...)123
