I have been rather remiss in the Friday postings for The Bruce, so I decided to double down.
And if only he was running..sigh.
We are under a flash flood watch for most of the weekend , commonly known to the rest of y'all as the first weekend of Mardi Gras, but I don't think it's going to be that bad. We have had rain off and on for over the last two weeks which is good because the ground was so hard packed that it took quite a while for saturation to kick in..which we are desperate for. It is forecast that we are going to have another truly awful year..no spring to speak of and that is heart breaking because we cherish what little bliss we have. And of course all of the spring nursery catalogs are coming in the mail and making me slightly more mental than usual because the things that I so desperately want to plant..the petunias, geraniums and so on will all but burst into flames if we have a repeat of 2011. Point in case..we lost geraniums that were over 8 years old. On the other hand, after Mardi Gras , we have Rodeo..don't laugh..HLSR ( Houston Livestock Show And Rodeo for the tourists in the audience ) is a huge deal in Houston and gives away a ton of scholarship money......and it is not unknown for a real cold snap to hit down here during Rodeo . Look out...here come the Buckle Bunnies !!!!!
Other than that, life is pretty damn good. I managed to get some photos scanned for the cousins facebook page of my late mother , Xena has managed to keep bits of cooked hamburger down but Gracie is working her nerves right now so she ( Xena ) is biting her hair off..sigh. SU is taking today off , along with Monday which he really needs..and he planned on spending the day with his father so there is that ...and there will be beer on the horizon for him later..lmao I have no real plans for the weekend other than getting the nails done and baking a loaf of banana bread for one of the gals at the office...an over due promise....damn my mad baking skills....lol.
Have what ever kind of weekend YOU want to have.
