Damn You, Mother Nature

Warning: This blog post contains petty bitching. Proceed at your own risk.

I had a whole day full of activities planned. Fun activities. Active activities. Activities that would provide me with a week's worth of blog posts. Outdoor activities. I am not doing any of them though, because it is fucking raining.

This is how my day should have gone:

  • Meet friends for brunch at charming canyon restaurant with a lovely patio.
  • Go to the gay pride parade.
  • Come home and replant hen and chicks that have outgrown planter in the front yard.
  • Walk Sally down to the park to throw bread at the young geese that are just getting ready to take off.
  • Make bacon wrapped asparagus to take to a barbecue with Ryan's colleagues.
  • Go to said barbecue and bask in the warm weather, playing with the kids I love to see.
How my day has actually gone:
  • Meet friends at charming canyon restaurant, find out patio is closed, and so the wait is 40 to 50 minutes. Wait in the rain for a table.
  • Enjoy brunch, but wonder what the hell I am going to do for the rest of the day.
  • Think about going to the pride parade, but decide not to. Not even the promise of hot wet gay men can get me motivated.
  • Come home and wrap asparagus in bacon, while grousing about how much this day sucks until Ryan finally pours me a glass of wine -- at 12:15.
  • Watch Ryan try to get Sally to go out for a walk, and then watch him chase her around because she hates the rain, but still has way to much pent up energy.
  • Bitch blog about the day.
  • Nap, hoping skies might clear before this afternoon.
Oh, and it's not enough that it's raining, it's actually cold. We had to turn the heat back on. I am wearing a sweater. We both have the sniffles from sleeping with the swamp cooler on, not realizing that the weather was about to drastically change overnight.

Watch, it will be sunny tomorrow -- when I am at work.

Are you sure you aren't in Minnesota? That is the weather here today... and I'm peeved about it too.

I hate it when the weather F's with plans like that. I like the solution of a glass of wine at 12:15 though!

Bacon-wrapped asparagus? Wow, does Ryan like his co-workers? Just curious... because they're going to have some stinky pee. *snort* Of course, bacon-wrapped ANYTHING is heavenly in my book. ;)

I avoid Wine like the plague. Back when I used to drink it, it used to have this wacky side effect of making me wake up the next day not remembering what the heck I did the day before. Hmm... maybe you should drink more?

Oh Libby, If you missed the pride parade, I am really worried about you! Big Hugs from cloudy SoCal.

Oh, June gloom is everywhere! :)

"Hot wet gay men" made me laugh out loud.

(I love the fish background/header!)

It always works that way, doesn't it?

Mother Nature, stop being such a whore!
