I'm here, I'm home
safe and sound. What does that mean anyways, I mean I know what "safe" means, it's like, well, safe, but what about "sound"? What does "safe and sound" sound like? and if I weren't "safe and sound" what would THAT sound like? Does it mean sound as in "of sound mind" cus if that's what it means, we all need to get a new dictionary.
The thundersnow has stopped and the snow is gone. The sun is shining and I put my coat away once again. (until next time) I got married in July (about a century ago) and it snowed a week before my wedding. (I should have taken that as a sign of things to come). Summer is back though for now and that makes me very happy. I did hear some birds breathing hard when they flew by, but that's just because it's still windy. If I were a bird, I would fly south. California maybe. Wouldn't you? Dumb birds.
I did some housework tonight. Normally, I listen to dirt, I don't sweep it. But the cat's been coughing, so I thought I should do something. I keep my broom and dustpan in the narrow space between the fridge and the wall and it JUST fits in there. So I shoved it in there and bent down to pick up the dustpan and it fell out and whicked me right on my ear. RIGHT on my ear. Hurt like heck. I actually saw stars. I thought that was just a literary device: "seeing stars", kind of like alliteration, but nope. It's real. I think I'm deaf now. Just on that one side. I took some aspirin, but I'm going to sit down on the couch and do nothing for the rest of the evening. and I'll never do housework again. It's too dangerous.
