Porch Paths, Growing Trucks and Hot Showers

There's a light frost on everything outside the kitchen window this morning. I love the way everything sparkles when the light hits it, even my old car with the "for sale" sign, that I can't seem to unload.

The Amazon and I made it to the dump with the stinky old recliner yesterday. We got rid of an old television and computer too. You can almost see a path on the front porch. The child had the gall to laugh at me when I tried to heave my big butt up in the back of the truck. It took some wallerin' and gruntin' but I made it. I don't remember it being that hard to get in the bed of a pick-up before. I use to hop in the back of Daddy's truck all the time without thinking twice. They must be making them higher off the ground than they used to.


It's totally not that I'm not as spry as I used to be.

The 10 gallon aquarium which housed our Russian Dwarf hamster is sitting out on the porch too. There won't be another hamster, since we discovered that I was highly allergic to the cute little fuzz ball. Every time I handled her or cleaned out her cage, my eyes swelled shut and felt like they were full of gravel. I looked like I'd gone a few rounds with Ali.

Hamster pox ain't fun ya'll.

I'm toying with the idea of turning it into a terrarium. I'd like to have a couple carnivorous plants, but then that would mean more mouths to feed.

Maybe not.

I dread going back to the Cubicle Asylum tomorrow. Bossman will be back and Bubbles will have spent a weekend alone with the Bubbahubby and her rugrats. She'll be wound up tighter than a Slinky. I know I'll have a headache by lunchtime, it never fails on Mondays. I can't blame it all on Bubbles, as much as I'd like to. I really think it has a lot to do with the dry air wreaking havoc on my sinus'. I found this on Amazon. It should be just the right size for my little cubicle. The fact that it's cute and looks like a penguin is just an added bonus.

I think I'm going to take advantage of the peace and quiet this morning. The Amazon is at work for another couple of hours, so I'm going to go take a nice, long, hot shower, followed by curling up on the couch with a critter or two and a hot cup of coffee.

Ya'll enjoy your Sunday.

Count your blessings.
