I was minding my own business when the rain came blowing in.
Torrential, cold mucky windy rain. Thunder and lightening too.
Thank goodness it wasn’t snow.
You would think we live in prehistoric times, because every time it rains we lose our phone and internet services.
Ok, I realize we didn’t have these advanced technologies when the dinosaurs were roaming the earth.
Seriously though it is 2014, why does a little rain cause such an outage and more importantly, why does it take the phone company so long to fix it? I’ll give them credit, though it was only two and half days this time until we miraculous had connection again.
Also along with the rain and wind came a howling head cold. Where’d that come from?
I’ve had lots of tea and honey, and once just a splash of whiskey – for medicinal purposes.
Today the sun is shinning so brightly.
Mr. Cottage cleaned and filled all the bird feeders that got gunked up, the last few days, because the squirrels have figured out how to pull the tops off of them; sit inside and eat the seed, leaving it exposed and wet from the rain, thus a gummy gunked up mess.
I thought I had out-squirreled them, because I had taken petroleum jelly and rubbed down all the poles the feeders are on. That worked for awhile, and I got great amusement out of the fact that they slid all the way down to the ground, unable to hold onto the greasy pole.
Through my dirty kitchen window:
I catch the little fuzzy rat in action.
Don’t send me hate mail – I have two designated squirrel feeding stations, so that they get fed, and so they will leave the feeders alone. Greedy little B——-.
Today, with the filled and clean feeders the birds are happily eating and singing and there isn’t a squirrel around. That is kind of strange.
They must be off plotting some kind of take-over.
Rainy days are good for puzzle time.
That Cat helps me.
Then the white nemesis makes an appearance.
An ugly confrontation occurs, and then the stare down.
So I end up having to put the puzzle away, so I don’t have pieces spread from one end of the room to the other.
And so goes Life at Coral Cottage.
Hope you are safe from the weather and having a good weekend.
See you later,
