I know it is January now and I know that tomorrow it is supposed to get down into the 40's, but for today it is 80 degrees and so dry. The house is hot and I am not turning on the air conditioner. I am just going to be cranky for a while. Most everything is brown and brittle. This pasture across the road should have some kind of winter grass growing but it is too dry. I do feel for those who are in drastic cold right now or are snowbound and I should be glad that I am in short sleeves, with the house wide open and that I was just outside sitting in the sun. If there weren't so many flies, maybe I wouldn't be so cranky. Or maybe, if I just looked around outside some more, or sat on the deck and watched Mike BBQ some chicken wings, I would stop being irritable. I'm done complaining. I just looked at the weather forecast and Monday is supposed to be really cold with a good chance of rain. I'm going out to enjoy this while it lasts.
