Maybe if we can all laugh alike, and laugh at the same time,
this world of ours wouldn’t be able to find so many things to squabble about.

I have been doing a lot of thinking lately. According to My Hero that is never a good thing. So, you have been warned. He indeed knows me better than anyone. Sometimes my thoughts are jumbled and make absolutely no sense but here we go. You be the judge.
Last night it snowed, let me rephrase that, last night we had a tease of snow. Kind of like a sprinkle of rain during a drought. We need so much more to make up for our drought season this past summer and fall. People on other blogs are posting photos of their families outside snowshoeing, snowboarding, skiing and just plain old building snowmen in the snow. We are not engaged in any of those fun activities. Do not get me wrong I have been out there walking in the snow and I tend to play with my cows a lot. I am not real sure how they feel about this weather, they are keeping that to themselves. This last snow is barely up to the top of the soles on my boots. A thin layer of ice lurks below just to trip you up. Is it wrong for me to constantly wish for snow, and be jealous of those who have it?
This morning, I read a report that this time of year is a very depressing time for so many people because there is not enough sunlight, and yes I do understand that one. I may have a thought as to why.
This morning while “swiffering” the floor, because honestly I was too lazy to pull out the vacuum, I noticed two very large dust bunnies. I stared at them for a long time with amazement and wonder. Their beady little eyes and big teeth; never mind that may have been in my head, but whatever. I thought about a house that I had just visited where no one lives and realized just how clean it was. There were no dust bunnies anywhere to be found. This made me wonder how two people like us, could generate so much dirt and grime and such huge menacing dust bunnies. This is the part of the story where I must tell you that I am not that incompetent of a housekeeper. Honestly, I was once a professional housekeeper so I do know “stuff.” Well, I did know “stuff.”
I vaguely remember doing this very same “swiffering’ just last weekend. I have come to the conclusion that those dust bunnies are hiding out when I clean and then come out when I am sitting down to admire my professional work.
There is a law in our province that you are not allowed to evict tenants in the winter months. I may be wrong about whether it is still in effect, so do not quote me. I have come to the conclusion that these huge dust bunnies and their little buddies got wind of that law. I do know they tend to share information.
It has been a bit windy out there, so let us face it, they would not have a chance. I “swiffered” near them and off they ran again. I look forward to the spring when I will be able to evict those two and their families.
I did have one thought, though. Possibly, if I did drag out that vacuum hose that seems so cumbersome and heavy these days, and then sucked them into the bag, they could live there instead of under the refrigerator. I am pretty sure there is no law about just where in the house they had to live.
I warned you that My Hero says my thinking is never a good thing. You understand why now, don’t you?
Have a happy week everyone. Find some humour, and the laughter that will follow, no matter how strange it may seem at the time, and just go with it. After all, spring is just around the corner.
If this post can make, at the very least one or two people laugh, then it has done what it was meant to do. I may need to do some more thinking. This may take some time.
