Random Thoughts on a Beautiful Morning

Gorgeous sunrise this morning.
We are expecting a winter storm this coming weekend, so a run to the storm today sometime to make sure we have what we need in case the roads get too bad.

I don't really understand the last minute rush for bread, eggs and milk, aka, "the French Toast People".
They watch the same weather reports and visit the same web sites as everyone else. But they are the ones that wait until the last possible minute to go to the store to get needed supplies before a predicted storm. We know TODAY that a storm may hit this weekend. That's 3 to 4 days warning.
Why not go today? Or tomorrow?
But nope, as the wind begins to howl and snow is piling up, there will be a troop of people rushing on dangerous roads to grab that *one little thing* they must have. If you must have it, you should have already had it!
I understand perishable items...but, seriously, folks, is it worth it to end up in a ditch just to grab a gallon of milk and a loaf of bread?
Keep an eye on your local weather. Plan accordingly and plan ahead.
If you MUST go out in bad weather, be careful! Remember, (as I always tell myself), all those other drivers out there are idiots! (and they think the same of you, lol!)
I did it. I ordered a seed catalog.
Ever the eternal optimist, I somehow see myself being able to garden in the coming year. Being somewhere where I will have the land to have a garden.
I'll see how it goes.
But seed catalogs are, I think, proof positive that those that have farming in their blood are optimists.
The gorgeous photos of luscious tomatoes and mouth-watering watermelons always entice us to buy that packet of seeds...when we know full well that it will entail a lot of hard labor to get the same result in our gardens. If the bugs don't eat them...and the rains come...but not too much rain...and the weeds don't over run the garden...and the birds and squirrels and deer...well, you get the idea.
Still, we plan and dream and hope...and that is a darn good thing!
At least I didn't order a chicken catalog this year....but I am still looking at the web sites, lol!
I hope all my readers are having a wonderful new year and making their own plans for the coming seasons.
Stay safe, drive safe, and fix a nice pot of beef stew for a cold night!


  1. I don't like to garden, I'd rather drive on a bad road to get what I need. LOL
