Saturday Plans

Okay, I know everyone is sick of all the whining, weeping and gnashing of teeth about the cold weather.  But I need you to know that I slept in a turtleneck and a sweatshirt last night.  It was -1 this morning, but has warmed to a sweltering 6 right now.  However, I am not going to dwell on that.  I have my battles to do.  My day will be filled with dealing with the wildlife here.

Just look at that %$#&%@*&% squirrel.  And he has lots of friends.  They actually ate another feeder.  Ate. The. Feeder.  Gah.

Meanwhile, in Costa Rica, the Mental P Rugrats report an oversized bathroom and a forecast high of 87 today.  Augie sent some pictures to me.  I am guessing their day will be slightly different.  I hope they don't strain themselves deciding which chair to settle in for the day.

Did I mention that I had to sleep in a turtleneck and a sweatshirt?

This is all wrong, all wrong I tell you. Lucky little darlings.

Is it too early for wine? What about a mimosa?

Ellen said...

Husbands in Arizona, kids in Costa Rica. Where is the justice?

Ellen said...

CGW - the orange juice would freeze - how about the champagne just straight?

asthmagirl said...

Minus one? I have no advice. Why are the squirrels moving when it's that cold out? I thought you were winning that war?

Country Girl said...

Our squirrels here must be related to yours. They've eaten a feeder also. My husband has been feeding them on the picnic table so they don't destroy another one.

Squirrels need love, too.

And then we're going to shoot them and skin them and cook 'em in a pot. They taste like chicken, ya know. Aand that's how we's country folks handle squirrels.

Country Girl said...

OMG. Why do I fib so?

Lisa said...

Oh man, I don't know which is worse, you and the single digits, or your horrible children enjoying themselves in that beautiful place. Oh the injustices of life.

Turtle neck to bed??? Where are those darn hot flashes when you need them?

Trisha said...

I feel your pain about the squirrels. While we haven't been dealing with them in Texas, they were rascals when we lived in Ohio! Especially in the winter.

Living on the Spit said...

I will trade places with you gladly!!! You are burning more calories though. Okay, I know that doesn't make you feel better.

Poor little critters...but at least they have some special like you to look out for them.

Your kids are so very lucky! You, not so mcuh, but I will trade places with you?

By help, you mean therapy, right? Those folks gave up on me a LONG time ago.

Hot toddies by the fire?

Love ya,

Marlene

Flea said...

Poor, poor Mental P. Sleep in a bikini tonight and imagine yourself in Costa Rica. I'm sure Mr. Mental P will keep you warm if you sleep in a bikini ...

Snooty Primadona said...

Costa Rica looks lovely... hope they're having fun.

We battle w/ the squirrels every weekend, but they've learned to hide when hubby is home. The little rats. Last week our electricity went out twice thanks to the little devils.

Mary said...

I slept in a fleece and two pairs of socks. Dead sexy, I'm told.

We had squirrels who started by visiting our bird feeders and ended up nesting in our attic. So beware.

Stay warm!

Mary

Jules said...

Will your ex adopt me?

Magpie said...

Ate the feeder!?! That's a good one.

We gave up on bird feeders because the mice kept bringing the seeds into the house. Life was much better without that.

Laura ~Peach~ said...

squirrells ate the darn feeder here too and I have FOOD out FOR THEM little bastids.... time to get the red ryder out and retrain them... poor birdies are starving out there due to the tree rats... How sweet of the son to send you those pics... and HOW could you sleep in all those clothes... have mercy...Giggles. COME ON MAMA HEAD SOUTH

Busy Bee Suz said...

Suz here.....
I feel for you in your sweatshirt AND turtleneck. That is weather for penguins and polar bears. No one else should have to take it.

Squirrels are ravenous creatures. I only have a few, so I tolerate them and they tolerate me. :)

**I stayed at the same exact hotel as your kids are at right now. It is GLORIOUS!!!!**

noble pig said...

Oh that pool looks nice..will they do some surfing today while you man the squirrels?

Laura ~Peach~ said...

LOL... you make me LAUGH OUT loud... cause you of all find and bring up the absuridity...DID I spell that even remotely correctly??? sigh going outside to visit the fishes ! LOL

Suz Broughton said...

I'm not being me...I'm really NOT, but I'm wearing flip flops and going to the beach today. Okay, that was a little mean.
Look at it this way, I haven't seen a squirrel in 15 years and look how cute he is. :)

Noe Noe Girl...A Queen of all Trades. said...

Mama~ I slept in sweatpants~feed up all the critters this morning~cooking up chilli in the kitchen~ it all goes great with Corona! I feel like I'm at the beach right now!

Flash Stitcher said...

Well at 12:41pm it is a high of 14. Yes, I am green with envy. The closest NSLO and I will get to 87 is the hot shower!

I sent my squirrels to you as they ate 2 of my Finch feeders. Hope they poop blue plastic for a lobg time!

Daryl said...

I put on TWO pairs of socks and my boots when I met my friend for brunch earlier this afternoon ... as well as a lot of other warm clothes ...

Its never too early for WHINE ..

Squirrels are nasty

Debbie said...

This is just plain wrong. At least when David just left to go BACK after 24 hours here, he was freezing too. It's a whopping 28 here and was 8 this morning.

Winter bites.

Decadent Housewife said...

Mental, are you sure it was the squirrels who ate the feeder? :)

phd in yogurtry said...

Hot toddy and a bb-gun?

Tammy said...

Stayed in my gown...long john's...plush robe and kneesocks until noon today...and didn't want to get a shower then...LOL!

I'm sick of it too! Jealous of your luck little darlings!

Enjoying your blog!♥

Tonjia said...

oh this is wrong, terribly wrong!!! it does look beautiful though.

Sassy said...

I am so sorry that you are FREEZING! That is soooo cold! Please come to the Valley of the Sun...it was actually way too warm for me today...it worries me about what the summer may be like here. I'm sorry to be rudish by telling you that...please stay bundled up!

big hair envy said...

Shoot! You win. I was going to complain because it was THREE degrees here this morning. Compared to you, we were having a heat wave. Last night, I slept in pj's, a sweatshirt and socks. SEXY!!!

Sandie said...

"Gnashing of the teeth..."

That made me giggle out loud :)

Want to know something weird? I've never seen a squirrel in our neighborhood. It's nice, but kind of odd when you think about it.

Laura ~Peach~ said...

I am the dork who recalls more useless information and Dates and photos and the like are something mike and I were discussing tonight because my dear hubby had thought Corys birthday was tuesday... ITS TOMORROW so then I told him every January birthday in the family from all 49 sides and he asked me if I was nuts.... I started to tell him I could tell him anything he woudl not know the difference... when His mom died his brothers and sisters aasked ME when their mom was born (the year because they could not decide) we argued a bit the boys believed me the girls did not ... I was correct... Sigh... thats me the DORK.

Marvin said...

A nice coat lined with squirrel fur might keep your warm.

Egghead said...

Eating bird feeders? Well I never!! But I do agree with Country Girl only it should be a squirrel on a stick roasted on an open flame. Har har! Just jokin!

Hilary said...

I believe it. I'm always cold. I sleep in layers too. And two blankies.

TSannie said...

Get out your shotgun! I love Marvin's squirrel-lined coat solution!

Jill said...

We are in the Midwest and also have these freezing temps....UGH! Just CANNOT get warm!
Your squirrels are just down right THIEFS!!!!
Stopping by for a visit!
Jill

shara said...

I hate Hate HATE the cold! Ah!!! Yesterday, it warmed up some, but I was still freezing. My manfriend kept asking me why I was so cold. You think he could figure it out, poor thing. The weather froze that part of his brain. (Not really. He is wonderful. The cold is making me crabby. Although, I think it is too cold for crabs as well...)
