so this is what its like

ive never lived in the mountains or way up north
and had to endure those long cold winters

the closest we ever came to that was when my wife she
was in graduate school at the university of arkansas
in faytetteville arkansas
tucked in the ozarks in the northwest corner of the state
when the year we were there those wintery storms
came through on a weekly basis
and it seemed there was always snow and ice on the
roads that winter during january and february
i didnt like it then
and i dont like it now

as we here in central texas have been forced in side by
cold weather for several days and will have at least two
more days before we get that warming trend we
usually see here in central texas

all that cold rain and sleeting thats been going on does
make for a fun weekend though

so we were locked inside by the weather
i have my gardens all covered up with the white row cover
blankets that lets the water through but keeps it warmer
around our plants

we have had our wood burning stove going all weekend like
an old train engine
shoveling in wood to keep it full
after awhile the heat from the stove warms all the limestone
inside our house and we basically have this warm oven
that we can live in
its the best warmth you can ever experience
almost cocoon like

then for me i got to watch football all weekend long and
mostly vegetated on the couch that big comfortable made
for football and lounging and napping

i saw the razorbacks lose but i think theres a team brewing inside
there that will get better every year
dont give up hog fans

i watched that johnny football play
he lost but i would pay to watch him play live
hope he goes pro this year

i watched the baylor bears hoping to watch that high powered
offense but they got mauled by the osu cowboys

i watched the cowboys win thank goodness
the best of the worst it seems

then i watched the beginnings of the peyton vs tom battle
wished i could have stayed awake for the whole game
it sounded like a good one at the end
im real glad i wasnt at that game and am glad i dont live in new england

ill never complain about our weather again

so a good cold but warm inside snuggly weekend
here at the country n

sometimes you just have to have one like that you know
