Today is just impossible.
I’m not in the best of moods today, my body aches everywhere and it looks as if it is an unfortunate combination between too much shoveling with a slight cold and a touch of rheumatism. I can normally handle the rheumatism when it comes by itself but this combination is just disgusting. I can fix the ache in my neck and spine but the pain in my legs from the bend of the knees down to the feet is impossible to fix it seems.
I have even used pain relieving salve which isn’t good for me because it hits my stomach even if I put it on my skin. You know the commercials for those salves? They can’t do a thing and then they use the salve and life becomes wonderful and they can do just about anything for the rest of the day? It doesn’t really work like that 🙂 One needs to take it easy the rest of the day if it is going to work especially well 🙂 I can’t say it didn’t work but I would lie if I said my pain was gone 🙂
The night was unusually cold here, it sank down to -18,4C (-1,1F) but it got warmer fast in the morning when the snow came. It has snowed all day and it just keeps on snowing all the time and I can’t say I’m happy about it. The wind is rather strong as well but nowhere near to what it was when Sven passed. Still, they have been warning us from driving around since it is very slippery on the roads today. I’m soo looking forward to driving to work tomorrow, especially if I have to shovel away snow around my car to be able to get out at all 🙂
This will all start to melt away already on Tuesday so this was just a big waste of garbage weather. But on the good side my poinsettia’s are still alive and still have all their leafs, that’s unusual 🙂 It’s getting dark outside and it’s not even 3 pm yet, so I better go outside to fill the bird feeders and give the deers some food as well. I still haven’t seen any bucks here, just that one I think might have been one early in the morning. I do hope we at least have some left here.
After that I’ll start the fire in the stove again and make a pot of tea. I’ll try to sit in a reasonable comfortable way and watch a dvd or two. I feel that today is a Life of Brian day 🙂
Have a great day!
