I think my get up and go has got up and left. Can't seem to get motivated to do much of anything today. Spent part of the morning wrapped in my green fuzzy blanket, Kindle in hand. The rest of the morning was devoted to reading my favorite blogs and roaming about on the web. There were several cups of coffee involved, so it wasn't completely wasted time.
Here in my little corner of Suburbia, Mother Nature seems to have developed a case of attention deficit disorder. Earlier this week the temps were just at the freezing point which made streets and sidewalks interesting when the misty rain froze to their surfaces. Early this morning the temperature hovered at +3 degrees, rising to +13 by noon. Tomorrow temps in the +40 degree range are predicted. And after that, the weatherman's guess is as good as mine. When I look out my window I see a few patches of ice and no snow which is unusual for this time of year, even in my downtown location where streets are plowed and sidewalks shoveled. I am not complaining. Could be like "Joisey" where Chickenmom lives. She says they are expecting at least a foot of the white stuff today.
I have been just scanning the headlines of the day to keep myself somewhat informed about what is going on in the world around me. I find myself becoming irritated at the childish antics of our lawmakers. Years back, when children squabbled and hurled insults at one another, their parents applied the palm of the hand to the seat of the pants and sent the miscreants to bed without supper. I get an urge to do the same to those in Congress, considering they are more often than not acting like tantrum throwing toddlers.
Guess I have goofed off long enough. Time to open a jar of ham and bean soup for lunch. After that I think I can rouse myself enough to bake some cookies. Chocolate chip and maybe peanut butter. Chocolate chip cookies and a cold glass of milk makes the world look a bit brighter. :)
