Cat With No Name is guarding the bird feeders from the seed licking deer.
Something I think we all need in these days of uncertainty, a song. I live alone, very alone, and everyday I think about my job and what would happen if I lost it. Everyday I think how long it would take someone to find me if I died. This fucking virus, this goddamn fucking virus. Everything is shutting down, left and right. States are shutting down. To top is all off, we have a fucking imbecile for a president. The day that orange piece of shit is gone will be a great day.
Anyway, here is the song this world needs right now.
It’s been a while again, I know, I just haven’t been doing much.
This morning I went grocery shopping and needed to get gas for the Subie. The last time I got gas was January 2nd, just shows how little I’ve been out. Anyway, as I was shopping my hip flexor really started acting up and was very painful, though I didn’t have any pain in my leg. I thought things were getting better, maybe they are, but shit, I was hoping to maybe, just maybe, get out and about a little tomorrow, now I don’t know. This weekend is forecast to be really nice with sunny skies and temps in the high 40s today and mid 50s tomorrow. Today is very windy, so the temps don’t feel all that warm, and tomorrow sounds like it could be just a windy.
I guess I’ll just have to wait and see how I feel tomorrow about going out. Also, I hope the warm and sunshine melts the snow we got the other day because my driveway is a mess and I refuse to get the snowblower out.
I’ve made my decision to get rid of this worthless pellet stove this spring, maybe sooner. I have propane forced air heating, so the ductwork runs under the floor, and if I have the pellet stove running, it warms the room but not the floor because the furnace doesn’t kick on, so that cold radiates around my feet making them cold. Also, I can’t stand the damn loud noise of the pellet stove. I only run it in the morning to warm the house and turn it off mid-morning. It takes about an hour to turn off, but what a relief it is once it’s off. Propane is fairly inexpensive here, and the cost of running the fans and such in the pellet stove being electric is much higher, electricity here is very high.
So, that piece of shit pellet stove is a goner.
It is, it is a beautiful day out. We have bright sunny skies with a temp of 43°F at 1:00 PM and rising. It is quite windy out though, so it does feel as warm as it is. Wish I could enjoy the day, but I have to work and I really can’t do much anyway. These temps should hold through to the first part of next week, then it will get colder again. Some forecasters are saying we could see an early spring, we’ll see how that goes, but I sure would like to see it.
I’ll try and update this blog more often.
