When I lived in Iowa the joke was that one wanted to experience all four seasons in one week they just had to live in Iowa for a while.  Sooner or later they would have such a week.

Seems to be the case up here in Minnesota as well.  After a stretch with with highs in the 70s to 80s even up as high as 90 it's been fairly cool out the past few days.  Supposed to warm up again over the week and be up around 80 by this weekend.  So far the plant collection seems to be tolerating the cold snap fairly well.  If it was getting too much colder I'd bring them inside or cover them up.

I had to turn the heat back on this morning because the place finally got cold enough to need the heat on for a while.  I'm not my aunt or uncle who would keep the home in the mid 60s and where sweaters at home when it's cold out.  I have been wearing all my heavier long sleeved stuff lately just because once it warms up again I probably won't need them again for a few months.

It has been unseasonably cold here in Colorado as well: from the eighties (F) to the twenties in 24 hours a few days ago. However, it came with some much needed moisture in the form of snow/rain so we are happy especially as apparently the landscaping plants have survived the wet sticky snow we got.

Had a FB friend say that it was 90s in upstate New York the other day.  Of course I had to go tell her what the weather was like in Minnesota.  Expressions of dislike ensued.

When my sister and brother in law lived in St. Charles, Missouri (St. Louis area) my brother and I went to visit them one spring weekend.  Temperature had dropped in less than 24 hours from close to 90 down to the mid 30s.  We froze our hind parts off at a Cardinals game.  We went to another game the next evening and temps were much nicer then.

      I remember feeling a sense of calm for the rest of the day after hearing about the verdict even though I wasn't a victim.  Later that evening I was listening to an internet radio station and Nights In White Satin by Moody Blues came on.  The haunting and somber tone of that song gave me chills and I thought "This must be how Josh and Anna are feeling right now".

      I just realized today is the year anniversary of Smuggar's conviction. 

      And it's Friday.  Life is good.  

      What?! Wow how time flies!

      Abbie can design all the sweet little flower t-shirts in the world, she can promote her book, and sell people on her white evangelical anthro world but at the end of the day she's still an ugly, hateful, bigoted bitch. There's more of the slides but two is all I bothered to pull. Two is more than enough hate for me.

      I noticed she mentioned Target, Walmart and Amazon but not her beloved Anthropologie:

      So..my son is getting married at the beginning of March and I tried on dresses today. I need to lose weight. I'm about 60-70 pounds overweight and I absolutely have to. I'm not one to post statuses but I'm doing everything I can to hold myself accountable. I'm sitting here wanting to stuff my face and I know this isn't the answer. I can do this. I will be okay. I'm going to make myself check in regularly. Whether or not anyone sees this, I am going to be posting.

      Is anyone here from Moore County, NC?  I hope they catch the domestic terrorists that shot up the power substations.  All to stop a drag show!  Throw the fuckers in jail.

      What do people do in the Sonoran desert? I've hiked the hikes I wanted to do. Seems like all that is left is golf, shopping at chains that exist everywhere, and stuff I've done. Oh and eating. I can only eat so many times a day. It's too cold to rent a paddleboard or swim.
