Week-long Welcomings from Moosylvania: Jan. 19th through Jan. 25th

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. Watching the news, will definitely find something else to do when the Repubs come on. Will spend another day not talking, and will drink lots of Throat Coat tea, really tired of this. Today: un-schooch my plants (I’ve left them bunched together since the last freeze, but the long range forecast is for warmer than normal, so no more freezes) and groceries and the gym. Maybe if I get the blood circulating, that’ll knock this thing out.

  2. Good morning, 43 and raining in Bellingham. I’m attempting to listen to the impeachment “trial” but my ears keep glazing over. It’s hard to listen to so many lies and to know millions of people accept this reality as truth. I’ll turn the tv off soon.

    I know the big cleanup in my basement utility area last fall contributed to the leg misery I’ve been whining about so I’ll try not to do that again. But regardless the space is so nice to work in now I’ve been spending more time there. Yesterday I moved in a good radio and listened to CBC while doing the laundry. I’ve been washing the down comforters and and working my way through a very full ironing basket. Simple work and nice music is my plan for today as well.

    Diana, my fear is that someday I’ll drive past my former home and see my garden gone…..so sorry that happened to you. When we do leave here I would like to move closer to my daughters but Ron wants to stay in the neighborhood. Fortunately we don’t have to resolve that now but we do need to keep the discussion going.

    Best wishes to all on this rainy January day.
