Week-long Welcomings from Moosylvania: Oct. 22nd through Oct. 28th

Welcome to The Moose Pond! The Welcomings posts give the Moose, old and new, a place to visit and share words about the weather, life, the world at large and the small parts of Moosylvania that we each inhabit.

Welcomings will be posted at the start of each week (every Sunday morning). To find the posts, just bookmark this link and Voila! (which is Moose for “I found everyone!!”).

The format is simple: each day, the first moose to arrive on-line will post a comment welcoming the new day and complaining (or bragging!) about their weather. Or mentioning an interesting or thought provoking news item. Or simply checking in.

So … what’s going on in your part of Moosylvania?

NOTE: The comments page will now split off after 20 or so left margin comments with the most recent comments on the current page. To see the older comments, scroll to the bottom of the page and use the link.

  1. Good Saturn’s Day morning, Meese! It’s 48 F. here in NoVa at the moment, going up to 69 F. today. Last night I was freaked out by the sound of throbbing plane engines, which we don’t usually hear in this neighborhood. Thought Thing had started a war because of the late-breaking news on Twitter.

    Anyway, it’s clear this morning. Hard to believe that we’re supposed to have a super rainstorm tomorrow, to the point where I’m rethinking having Miss Pink Cheeks spend the night here. We were going to take her out for breakfast tomorrow.

    Going to spend the morning working to clear the garage in preparation for the contractor’s visit next week. This afternoon will finish the page proofs as I was out most of yesterday.

    Here’s hoping we all have a good day.

  2. I should have turned the heater on last night, it’s 67 inside. Brrr! No cooking this week, just thawing stuff out. When I wake up enough, I’ll send out some e-mails for the Walk. Joy Reid filled in for Lawrence O’Donnell last night, it was quite exciting with all the “indictment” talk. This morning’s show should be great.

  3. 28 at the moment – supposed to get to 47 somewhere around 4 this afternoon before it drops like a rock again. At least it’s clear and sunny (also at the moment). Only got 7.9 KWHs yesterday and the m-t-d is a hair under 240. Still can make 275 if we average 9 a day for the rest of the month. More would be nice, of course. :)

    I was up (and online) later than usual last night as the indictment “breaking” news broke just as I normally log off and everybody was playing guessing games on who it would be. We aren’t going to get rid of mad king donald and even if we did we’d be stuck with Cromwell II which is actually worse for women and LGBT folks – mad king donald can’t stay focused on any one group to hurt for more than 10 minutes which limits damage, Cromwell II is quite laser-focused on us. But anything that bollixes up the R-agendas is good. While they fight over who gets to eat us we have the chance to slip off the table. And maybe get control of the helm again.

    Community needs is only moving when one of my 4 or 5 angels have the funds to help, goddess bless them for doing it. But we are the Village it takes and we will survive, together. On another community note, Horsefeathers published her ebook “The Big Book of Andy – Now with More Aliens” – she started working on it before Tricia died and it’s dedicated to Trish and the Peeps. I actually got a free Kindle app so I could get it. :) – the Andy stories are hysterical of course, but also a trip down memory lane. I remember many of those from when they were “just” amusing threads in the diaries. (I’m having to take it in chunks – there’s a reason I don’t already have a Kindle – it’s very hard on my eyes to read stuff online – but there’s lots of laughter there.)

    I need to get over to DK – check on the Village diary, add my community links to it, and then work some more on the Sharing Saturday post for this afternoon. Bright the day, Meeses. {{{HUGS}}}

  4. Good morning, 49 and mostly sunny in Bellingham. Another restless night and another sleepy morning so nothing new to share. I want to make some hydrangea arrangements using salal and rhody leaves as the greens so that will be my outdoor project. The greens last a long time and the hydrangea blooms will dry in place so the arrangements last until I get tired of them. I’m so grateful for garden therapy!

    Hope it’s a good day for all.

  5. Got a new puter. The old one was unsalvageable. Will now spend the rest of the day installing programs – and transferring data from my laptop etc.
