spring influenza

Monday, April 11, 2011

Its amazing how a virus that i cannot even see can knock a "healthy" male for a loop . I spent the majority of the weekend sick and slept probably 20 out of the last 24. I still don't feel much like eating, I ate an orange at noon and a couple of slices of veggie pizza, some onion rings and some ground beef and some yogurt (the yogurt was the only thing I enjoyed). I don't know if its totally a side effect being sick or if my stomach is shrinking but I almost felt nauseated trying t eat ALL of that.

    Thanks yeah I took 2 days off of work and went back on Wednesday. My wife took all week off. Then the daughter (22) got it and tells her mom "oh I cant believe how sick I feel".

I know spring is definately here all the lead footed A--holes think my street is an extension of the freeway. I wish there were more speed traps. Every year at least a couple of cats get hit on my street. emoticon

I think its finally here (SORT OF)

Sunday, April 03, 2011

Its been nearly a week of above freezing temps (6 to 10 degrees C- about 43 to 48 degrees Fahrenheit- yes I am OLD enough to STILL HATE the METRIC system!!!!). It cant happen too soon- I just commented today on how it feels like its about a month late (probably not quite but certainly at least a couple of weeks late), The lawn is mostly all covered with snow and at least the roads are for the most part bare. The back alley is running and the drain is mercifully unblocked.

    Sadly perhaps I never took up golf but I sure do miss walking outside and biking, Winter in the prairies is too long. Mind you I know of other places in Canada I have worked that make this seem like a picnic. i went to you SP I thought perhaps you were English as I saw the photo of Parliament.

Spring where art thou?

Sunday, March 27, 2011

Well its nearly April and we still have most of the snow on the ground and ice on some of the streets and sidewalks. I am not very happy as I would prefer to be doing some yard work etc. It sure takes its toll this is one of the longest winters we have had in a long time.

    This has been one crummy winter. The worst in years.

    We've been getting a lot of rain (for Los Angeles), but we are going to have some sunny days this week before the next storms roll in.

Sending a little sunshine your way!

Lent

Sunday, March 13, 2011

I recently and (not without some trepidation) made a (yet to be determined how successful) attempt to attend church (OK Mass there the CATholic is out of the bag) on Ash Wednesday which I thought was appropriate, given the time of year. I used to attend nearly evey Saturday (my church has a Saturday evening Mass as well as Sunday) without fail until a few years ago and and then I stopped for whatever reason ( I can't recall). To tell the truth I did miss it. I find it frustrating that the demographics have changed somewhat from when I stopped attending why I am not sure (sorry but I find it rude when someone figures if they talk during mass in a language other than English its OK also these people cannot speak English as well as they think they can and it SHOWS ). I do know that when I did attend alot I used to get frustrated with the "C and E" ers (I DO NOT want to fall into that trap again) . I recall that the priest said in his homily that the only thing we are to give up for Lent was SIN (I thought great I am already screwed). I hope what he meant was we are to recall how dependant we are in God's Grace for our salvation. Have a blessed Lent and EASTER (Please remember all those who lost their lives , property / lielihood or loved ones in the TSUNAMI and the earthquake this week)

  Like you, I stopped attending Mass. I have no idea why because I always liked it.
