Humans are perverse – at least this human is. So I’ve been shrieking like a third-grade girl with the snow and the sub-zeroes and all that…so now, it’s 50F+ and I whining like a weasel because I’m ankle deep in mud and dog poop. But!…you wanna know why I’m reeeeealllly whining? Chicken guano. Chicken poop. The Chicken Depository. 3 months and 4 feet of snow meant those girls were locked in that coop yard for a long time. Long. Time. And it’s not like chickens are in the kitchen, baking cookies and watching The Price Is Right…. that coop yard is 5″ deep in…stuff. It’s like quicksand…and it’s slippery as hell.
And I fell in it. Went down like a sack of feed.
Un-liking the chickens right now. Not liking them at all. If they were smart they’d be laying eggs of solid gold, just sayin’.
But once I got showered I slathered on the Jergens. Ah, Jergens. Isn’t it weird: I’m awash in $100+ body creams and yet…something about Jergens still says ‘luxury’. I think it’s because my mom wore Jergens when I was a little girl – but not every day – and she would only let me dab a bit on my arms every now and then. Funny how that works, isn’t it, that a $2 bottle of lotion can evoke memories of luxury. I looked into a couple of almond-scented perfumes (Heeley L’Amandiere, Mona di Orio’s Musc, the fun, frolicking l’Artisan Jour de Fete, even the lovely, creamy Nuit Andalouse, which is not almond blossom but has that same feel – and is really pretty!)….the ones I mentioned here are gorgeous, every one of them…but for sheer luxury? Gimme that Jergens!!!.
Pickles. Here’s a question for you. Pickled garlic. Hot pickled Brussels Sprouts. Pickled onions. love them. LOVE THEM ALLLL!
so why don’t I love pickles??
Walks. Oh, baby! Do you know how good it feels to be able to walk the dog without the Dreaded Butt Clench? We’ve been walking everywhere! So nice. Alas, we’re expecting 3″-5″ snow tomorrow. Crap. Massive Thunder. Starting to rain. sigh. What kind of weather are you having?
Daylight Savings Time. I hates it. At least right now. Later I’ll love it but right now it’s pitch-black at 6a and there’s a lot of slickery chickenshitty mud out there. Gol.den. Eggs. Get TO it, girls.
