A grouch about winter.


Go away rain! I had plans for today! This included getting up to a nice warm sunny day and not shivering as soon as I turned of the shower. Oh no, wait, I am thinking of summer, still many months of this weather left. Ugh.

It’s not all bad though, instead of going to the pools today as we had planned (see above grinch about this horrendous weather), Marlee and I made pancakes for breakfast, watched half of Wizard of Oz (Yay – novelty is wearing off I think) and baked cupcakes. We have just finished icing them and I wish I had gotten a photo of Marlee with chocolate icing up her nose and in her eyebrows. Talent baby!

Marlee had a play outside with Mac, the friendly neighborhood cat while the cupcakes were cooking and I did manage to get a photo of her chasing him around the section. Yes it is a cold wet day and yes she has no long pants on. So sue me. Like Frances used to say – ‘you are not made of sugar’… Never did I think I would be quoting THAT. I used to spit tacks when it was said to me, usually to remind me the rubbish still needed putting out even though it was raining.

It is rest time now. Marlee loves our electric blanket, she quite happily went to read a book in our nice warm bed and she has since fallen asleep cuddled up with dolly. Bless.
