Week-long Welcomings from Moosylvania: Feb. 16th through Feb. 22nd

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 (usually Saturday night with a Sunday date). 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. Eating breakfast & watching the MSNBC morning show. Going to volunteer for my congressional candidate this afternoon. Sunny but still on the cool side — 50s this afternoon while I’m knocking on doors.

  2. It’s 34 heading for 55 in Fay., AR and the day is starting out sunny which is always good. (Clouds supposed to move in this afternoon – I hope late afternoon – and hang around with some rain and maybe snow through Wednesday. sigh) Yesterday we generated 13.4 KWHs – the best since last mid-September and with the m-t-d at 155.6 are definitely on track for 200 by the end of the month – IF we get enough sun over the next 8 production days. Be nice to get another 10+ chunk today.

    Prayers/Invocations/Channeling for my friends, the nation, and the planet. All need them. But the sun is shining and it’s my younger son’s 46th birthday so I am going to “Rejoice and be glad” in this day anyway. Bright the day, Meeses. {{{HUGS}}}

  3. Good Saturn’s Day morning, Moosekind, and it’s getting off to a very slow start! (I do love my early morning cruise through the Intertubes.) It’s currently a rather chilly 23 F. this morning in Ashburn, on its way up to 54 F. Glorious sunshine, which always makes me think of bfitz, is gilding the woods and lighting the blue sky outside.

    Like princesspat and our BlogGoddess Jan, I’m itching to get rid of my current work obligations and start something new. I really, really want to write “Home to the Heather,” “Catwalk,” and “My Little Coming-Out Party.” Luckily, I’ve just got the sustainability article to finish and turn in by 2 March, then I can get going on fiction.

    My blood runs cold every time I hear bernie being named the “front runner” after exactly two states have weighed in. Do the other 48 count for nothing? On another blog I rather tartly reminded people that Howard Dean, too, was the “front runner” for three whole months. There are people, as has already been pointed out here, who will never vote for someone who calls himself a Socialist. I’m quaking in my ugly black clogs at the thought of bernie’s being the nominee. If he is, I’ll write in Hillary’s name since the election will be lost anyway.

    Dearly Beloved pointed out that Nevada is in the same time zone as California, so we won’t know anything until very late. And that’s if the app doesn’t get screwed up!

    Must get dressed and scuttle off to do the shopping. I do hope I can have a writing afternoon! Wishing all at the Pond a good day.

  4. Good morning, 42 and cloudy in Bellingham. Thanks to slow indecision and creative possibilities I’ve got another day of puttering around with old needlepoint ahead, and it’s a welcome distraction from worrying about whatever happens in Nevada. Most of the needlepoint came from the antique shop where I worked part time so many years ago. I love seeing the owners writing on the tags, so sentimental me is going to sew the tags to the inside of the pillow covers. Some one will find them someday and wonder why :)

    Best wishes to all on yet another quiet morning.

      Princesspat, I like the way you think.
