I’m off work for a whole week, but it hasn’t started all that great. My neck and shoulders are all tied up in a knot so I’m considering a visit with my friendly naprapath. I haven’t been to her in years, but now it seems I can’t fix this on my own.
This just a picture from the other day, -JA- was getting the reindeer ready for pulling a sled. Hewey doesn’t seem to mind, does he`?
My niece got to try some different driving today…
Instead of masses of horse powers (as in big trucks) she was treated to a drive with a reindeer in front of a sled.
My sister’s daughter (my other niece) is stopping by for a few days on her way back home from a job interview. Her home is some 450 km to the south and her interview was another 400 km north of here… working as a trucker for a mining outfit. She turns 22 in less than a month, but handles 18 wheelers like I do a mid-size car…
I’m spending the weekend with Dad and -B- and as usual I feel as if I’m being wrapped in a huge, warm blanket. Loki is also acting as if he’s at a retreat…
This is by far his favourite spot while we are here – on the kitchen sofa with two pillows for his head.
I’m not about to complain – but a 10-day cure of penicillin really nocks me for a loop! I’ve been working since Monday and it’s all can do to get some food when I get home and then head for the couch until the hour is decent enough to go to bed.
Still have 2 days left of the meds – but like I said, I’m not caomplaining! I’m just not used to feeling this weak and feeble…
… is no fun at all.
I’m on an antibiotics cure specifically geared at pneumonia – and all I want to do is to sleep. Today was the first time since Tuesday that I actually was able to go for a longish walk.
This morning on the news there was a piece on TV about a recent survey which really made me wonder:
65% was of the opinion that charter schools is very good. 55% had however answered that the existence of charter schools leads to inequities in education.
In other words – fully 20% of those who extoll the virtues of charter schools, see no problem in the fact that more children are getting substandard education when those who can move their children to private schools do so!
Lord help us!
Once again, I thought I could look forward to a week at work during which my shoulders would be
way below/ slightly s outh of level with my ears…
Well, being such an incorrigible optimist can’t be all wrong. I suppose.
My first sighting of swans for this year.
This is a whole lot earlier than usual and since there is still ice on all lakes in the mountains, I expect they will remain around here for some time. Amazingly enough, but they seem to know instinctively when it’s time to move on to their breeding grounds in the high mountains.
The masses of snow we got yesterday has covered the boat again -but it made for a happy dog who could cavort around in the soft snow.
… in all its’ forms fascinates me.
I’m constantly trying to get that perfect picture of running water – so far no luck!
