Happy 420 Day


It is illegal to recreationally smoke in my state, so here is a pic of algae? or some other green slime growing in a drainage ditch.

Several presidential candidates propose to make it federally legal and expunge the records of those already incarcerated for marijuana charges. I would smoke with Kamala Harris, she is one who has many good ideas as president.

Pretty Awesome Sky On A Tragic Day


The world lost most of Notre Dame as it burned and the spire collapsed through the roof, also Monday The actress that played “Georgette” on the Mary Tyler Moore show died, she was only 70.

I replaced the suet in the bird feeder I hung on my neighbors hook. I looked outside several more times and saw a HUGE woodchuck. I thought about getting my camera to take a picture of him, then decided not to. I looked out one more time and saw how awesome the colors were in the sky. I did not get my camera out quick enough and walk outside quick enough most of the color was gone (well over half) but I did capture this.

Out of view the lower leaves of brambles and small bushes are greening up as they come out. The tall trees still look bare.

I feel better, even though nothing has improved

I saw horses on my walk on the rail trail…I had to zoom in because they were on the far end of the fenced in area…they kept walking behind the buildings so this is the best pic I could get. I only walked one day even though the weather was nice several days. I am trying to walk more often since I weigh the most ever in my life and I can not buy new clothes…my jeans are tight, maybe that is why I opted to stay in my pajamas all day one day last week.

I was locked out of twitter


This is an old pic, I recently had my hard drive replaced and have yet to install a place to download my photos from my camera.

So twitter said I was being abusive to trump for this tweet: @realDonaldTrump I can not take any more of this…I can only hope you drop dead soon before I do…I just want to cry myself to sleep thinking about all the rotten miserable things you have done…the people that suffer because of @GOP…the statue of liberty is not proud, the flag upsidedown

I am locked out unless they favorably review my appeal…I guess he can only torture the world and we have to take it in silence. F*ck him and his supporters and the whole GOP for aiding and abetting the MONSTER….yes if you support him F*ck you too! I can not take the nonsense any more.

I can not get a drive downloaded to run my printer, or I downloaded it 4 times but it is not recognizing it…I also have not figured out wordpress as to why I can no longer tag my posts…the world goes on without me…I am not adding to it, I am not helping anyone, I am not saving enough for my future and the cost of everything I need is going up, I feel helpless…I searched for jobs I may be able to do part time and I can not find any I could do…my ebay sales are tanking and have been the last few years….I was not motivated to get out of my pajamas today and it was sunny out

Another #Caturday


This week she went after a bug that was stuck between the window and screen. She got one of her claws stuck in the screen in her descent. I hope she learned not to climb up the screen again.

We had some pretty warm weather this week, I did not get the chance to walk though. I hope the snow stays melted in the upcoming week so I can walk at least once. I have a better chance now that the sun stays out longer.

It is #Caturday


I still have Luna Minerva, they allow one small pet in my apartment. My dog was too big, she lives with my daughter’s family now. I visited them last week.

Luna Minerva has taken to sleeping on my bed. She has ruined my new set of microfiber sheets with her claws. She knocks over some of the books and pictures when she runs into my room and leaps onto the bookcase to look out the window. I try to remember to open the blinds before I leave so she can look out. I can not wait until it is warm enough to open the door to my catio.

Climate Change and Global Warming


It can be the coldest day of the year in the warmest year on record. Global warming does not mean every single day gets warmer. Climate change means that the climate is changing. It did not happen overnight, it has been studied for at least decades. Having an ignorant moron as the so-called president is not helping anything. Climate change deniers restating their false myths is not helping either.

One of the main reasons I fought so hard for trump not to be president, is I knew he did not believe in Science. He has since selected other greedy people that disregard the health of the planet. The only thing these small percentage of cretins value is money. They will allow fracking, pollution, and roll back protections to get their way. They also will start wars (even civil wars), let people die from the elements, and look the other way while diseases (asthma for example) increase. Two words, Flint Water. There is a real crisis being ignored while dumpy manufacturers one about the border wall to distract from the awful things he continues to do.

I feel almost helpless for not doing more to fight back. I wish I had gotten a degree in geology instead of teaching. I wish I had an iota of authority to get rid of ignorance asap.

Waiting For The Snow Storm To Pass



This pic is my son’s window, the newly installed back door window bends the light that shines across onto the other window sill.

It was snowing pretty steadily but the super cold temperature will get lower, the snow deeper and not ending until Sunday evening. Listening to music and watching videos indoors while keeping warm is what will be happening. Only 60 more days until Spring.

I made a broccoli roll into individual muffin cups one day


I usually make a broccoli roll, I love broccoli and cheese, these are held together with pizza dough and have garlic for flavor. These are great dipped into pizza sauce or marinara.

I found out that doing this one handed was not so easy. It is also easier for me to eat these as sliced pieces of broccoli roll, and easier to dip into the sauce.

I used store-bought pizza dough and let rise in the bag it came in, loosen the bag fastener first. Then I spread it out and cut into 12 squares. Spread minced garlic (I usually use granulated but could not find any) shredded cheddar, Monterey jack, and mozzarella, and broccoli florets (I use thawed from a bag of frozen), but fresh would work too. Then try to place them in the muffin pan without dropping or have it slide down the sides. I tried to fold the tops over and sprinkle a little cheese on top. This is why making the roll is easier, you just spread the dough out, spread the ingredients on them, then try to roll up, I kind of end up rolling into thirds. Then bake, cool a bit before slicing.
