And it's not working to get rid of this artic blast. I'm ready for open windows and birds singing. And lower utility bills.

Yeah, cabin fever, usually hits about now, but hit a few weeks early this year. Just hoping that since winter was early getting here, that means that spring will be early. One can hope right?

***I call it "cabin fever" because I do feel "closed in" with the doors and windows being closed and because I don't get outside as much as I would like to...thus I feel "closed in" and restless*** Especially with this arctic cold we've been experiencing....temps in the single digits with wind chills are not so fun to be out in for any extended period of time.

cab·in fe·ver
noun: cabin fever

irritability, listlessness, and similar symptoms resulting from long confinement or isolation indoors during the winter.

Yesterday before heading out for work, had to take a fresh trash bag out to rebag the trash put out the night before for pick up. Why? A squirrel wanted some stale bread and that bushy tailed rascal was so determined to get to it, that it tore a few nice sized holes in the trash bag. That bushy tailed little critter is lucky it's cute!!! I had to pick up some trash it had scattered around in it's quest for that stale bread. Again, little bugger is lucky it's cute.

One of the things I've always liked about my house is the patio window in the living room, I can kick back and watch nature at play in the backyard, as long as the dogs aren't outside of course. I've got a few trees in the backyard that provides for the birds, sparrows, finches, cardinals, blue jays, robins, grackles, starlings, and chickadees. There is a condo style bird house on a pole that was here when I bought the house, it has 8 little "units" which has full occupancy. Maybe I should charge those birds rent. And in the back corner of the yard is a little waterfall/pond that I have to clean every spring. I need a new pump for it this year. Last year when I cleaned it I discovered some frogs had moved in. Where, in the middle of the city when the closest body of water is about 2 miles away from me, did these frogs come from? Oh well, I finished cleaning out the pond, filled it back up, got the waterfall going and the frogs returned. And this past fall, I had noticed when I went to shut down things for the season, instead of there being 2 frogs, it looked like there were 4 of them. I have no idea how they're getting there, but, it's not that big of a pond, only takes about an hour to fill it with the garden hose.

Thankfully things have quieted down around here since the holidays...needed that time to just step back and relax, figure out some things. We never know what life is going to throw at us, and sometimes it can knock the wind out of your sails. Those who know, know what I'm talking about, and it's not something I put in the blogs because it's private to me, and I've let friends know. It's rough, but, it's getting better, slowly. Sometimes, we have to stop and weigh out what is more important to getting in that last word on a fight that will get you nowhere, or, focus on those close to you who you care about and value more than someone who will never agree with you. There's a world out here of people with real feelings, real thoughts, real emotions, and real ideals that they embrace. Isn't up to me to tell someone they are wrong when I don't like someone telling me I'm wrong in what I believe/support. I know what works for me, and while I like a discussion, fighting with others because I don't agree with them....isn't going to change their mind, and they're not going to change mine. I'd rather discuss than argue, especially when it's apparent the other party seems to be itching for an argument rather than a discussion.

And I think my dogs are up to no good....they've been too well behaved lately.....
