and I admit it! Last Monday was NOT Presidents’ Day ... today is!! So I am confused! Do they have it whenever they feel like it?
I thought Presidents’ Day, with all it’s hoopla and advertising – isn’t that what Presidents’ Day IS, a day of buy, buy, buy – was on the Monday closest to Lincoln’s brirthday but found out that it’s on the third Monday of the month.
No WONDER there were all those ads for cars and furniture (the most popular sales items). Maybe I should go down and buy a new car or a new household of furniture. I won’t have to pay until 2009. And the ads tell me I NEED it!!
On another note, it’s 39º and just a gentle breeze from the north. This sunshine is invigorating! When I went out to do chores and fill bird feeders, I put Peanut’s sweater on and she came out to join me in the winter fun, plowing through snowdrifts taller than she is (not saying much, there)! Lil Cat is out of the front porch in the sun and enjoying the warm weather. Chickens are outside for the first time in over a month and enjoying the bright snow.
This heat wave will settle the snow so that it shouldn’t blow (until we get the next wave of snow). I got another picture of the snow dunes on our south side. And, no, Renee, all that land is not ours. Our land stops at the corn field, just past the snow fence. We have six and a half acres of land but the south abuts a corn field and we pretend it’s ours. We watch “our” farmer doing the plowing and tell people that “we” have decided to plant corn or soybeans and “our” farmer is just doing our bidding!! Lots of fun, since everyone knows that we are pretending and join in our fun!
