Snowy Fridays

Yesterday was 63 degrees.  Today it’s Snowing.  Oh March, you are a funny bunny.

I was hoping to get a picture of the cows in the snow but they were too busy eating.

This was the best I could do.  I did catch the hundred or so geese who stopped in the field until the storm moves on.

It’s really pretty.  The roads are wet but clear and this storm won’t be cumbersome.  All in all…not a bad way to begin the weekend!

I Can Predict The Weather

I have a disease that affects my bones and joints for the most part.  It also gives me the superpower of predicting the weather.  Like today, I’m all achy and fatigued.  That says temperature change and precipitation of some kind.

It’s not a superpower I really want.  If I could manipulate the weather, that would be a cooler superpower.  Storm looked neat and she controlled the weather.  It helped her fly…so that’s cool too.  Although, now that I think about it I’m afraid of heights.  So maybe not as cool as I thought, unless hovering two feet from the ground is considered cool.

Okay this post has spun out of control in a “you’re kinda crazy” way.

Forecast…rain.

Winter Time

It’s been a very mild winter thus far in the Mid-Atlantic Region of the US.  I’m not complaining mind you.  It’s not as shocking to the purse because the heat doesn’t come on every 5 seconds and we’ve had sufficient rain so far that this shouldn’t be a drought year.

On Gray days like this I force myself to get out into the open air even if it’s for 15 minutes.  Sometimes this happens…

 

It was an awesome 15 minutes.  I had to go back to work but I went back feeling a little more refreshed.  I do from time to time miss the snow, but today was a pretty nice.

Coulrophobia It’s Real Man!

Coulrophobia is a fear of clowns.

ddd-clown

I’m not sure when or why I developed a fear of clowns.  It’s real and it’s weird.  Clowns are basically harmless.  Well, unless they are associated with Stephen King…then not so much.  I think the only clown I’ve never been freaked out about is Bozo.  I think it’s because I once had a Bozo punching bag.  Perhaps it was a bit therapeutic to have a clown I could punch.

I’m still freaked out though…

Living with Autoimmune

I’ve been lucky these last few months.  I’ve felt pretty good in general but with Rheumatoid Arthritis my good is someone else’s very bad day.

This is a representation of how I feel today.  The weather was rainy this week, coupled with a cold spell settling into the region and a stressful, sleep deprived week and this is what is left.  A person who feels broken from the inside out.  My feet are swollen and my hands as well.  It hurts when I take a breath because my costal joints are inflamed.

I’m luckier than most that I can get treatment for my disease.  I also consider myself lucky that I do not have something far worse like Crohn’s Disease which is also an Autoimmune disease.  So although I feel like roadkill on a winter day I’m still living and pushing through it.  Everyone has something…this is my something.

When I’m Bored Things Get Weird

First you are probably wondering why all of these posts are posted on 12/1.  Well there are lots of reasons but mostly I’m just lazy.  So instead of posting each day I’m posting days worth of entries all at once.  Yeah…it’s stupid, lol.

I wasn’t feeling well last weekend and I was just lying around in the recliner when this happened…

As you know (if you read my blog) I love toys/action figures.  I’ve even created a fantasy world where they are alive.  It all started with a little Troll named Bjorn and 12 years later I’m still doing it.

I got this Hillary Clinton action figure for my birthday this year.

I was playing around with Snap Chat and these pictures are the result of my crazy views of life.

img_0434-281x500

I’m not going to lie… I had fun and think the pictures turned out well.  Snap Chat is a useful app.

Someday I will grow up…or not…I’m going to go with not, lol!

You never know what you will end up with at the end of the day with me.  I love this hat and to top it off it’s super warm for the winter!  Happy or Crazy this is one snugly Elf!

There was something for everyone!

No holiday would be complete without a Stock’s cake!  Boom…that’s what Philly is all about at Thanksgiving!

We would be thankful for more but our sports teams suck, lol!

I love the beach.  I love to take pictures.  Here are some of the pictures I took of the Beach.

It’s always nice to see the kinds swimming and jumping the waves.  Reminds me of my childhood.

Who doesn’t love seagulls?

The calm before the storm…Hermine hasn’t hit yet so the water perfect.

There was a plane celebration at the Cape May Airport so we got to see lots of vintage planes flying on the beach line.  This WWII Bomber was an amazing sight.

Flags were a big sight this year.  Many folks flew their college favors flags.

I can’t wait until I post The People of the Beach.  So many fun folks this year!

Actually she just wanted some carrots.  The high point of my visit was me asking Lightning if he would say Welcome To New Jersey (he was honking and being verbal).  His response was to spit on me, HA HA HA!  Yup, that’s seems like a fair Jersey welcome, lol!  If you get a chance to visit the South Jersey Area stop by Jersey Shore Alpacas!
