It’s very cold but all the students et al are on the annual St. Patrick Day pub crawl. We got to the grocery store early and were sure of enough goods to be laid out on the dinner table after I tackled a refrigerator with one science experiment I never want to re-do. Mold on my spaghetti and homemade meatballs…..
We did not want to be out on the streets in a car or on foot during the pub crawl so made sure we had everything we needed to stay in except taking out the dog.
It was easy for me to fall back into sleep during the day and the NCIS Lucky Ducky Marathon. Now it’s the middle of the night and I can’t sleep and don’t drink coffee so that’s the way it is.
Other than that, it’s incredible that our dog is as smart as she is, and I regret it took both of us nine years to get there. The lesson is that she doesn’t need more food, she needs more of a challenge so we will try to do that.
We see all the dogs, even squirrels from here and all of us love a good walk. Seeing buds on the local lilac bush is promising. Right now the wind is blowing like crazy and the temp is 29 but with a forecast of a top of 26 later on, with snow. Guess my husband will be taking my car to work because my snow tires are still on. I have the gear to walk anywhere.
Spring is different along the Lakes. Geese and Seagulls fly by. The lake is frozen, then thawed. An ice fisherman did take my hand to stand on the Lake a few weeks ago. He was a sweetheart but I would love some warmer weather.
The dog has gone out for the last time, perhaps there are no more leprechauns or drunken students out in a few hours when I take her out again. Happy St. Pat’s, Dee
