Robert Burns' poem To a Mouse, 1786
But, Mousie, thou art no thy lane [you aren't alone]
In proving foresight may be vain:
The best laid schemes o' mice an' men
Gang aft a-gley, [often go awry]
An' lea'e us nought but grief an' pain,
For promised joy.
Well, we are in for another storm. They aren't even talking totals..that's scary..
This is one of our many very tall Oaks. The last snow we had was a very gentle 2" that coated everything.
I was going to do some food shopping today. Because of this storm my younger sister, who works out here by us, and gets off at 11PM, might have to stay over night here Tuesday night..so I wanted to have enough pet food, and snacks for us (good soup ingredients).
But my oldest son went to leave for work this morning, and his car wouldn't start. He JUST got it back from the station! He said, "oh well, I have good tires and brakes now, anyway...".
So I am carless. I hope he can get it started by tomorrow, but I really had wanted to go shopping today before the stores got crazy...if I have to wait until tomorrow I might just wait until the end of the week! (but I do like to be prepared..you never know what's ahead..especially in the winter! We (the humans) will be ok, and probably could be for a while, but it is the animals I am always mostly concerned with) It really sounded like the battery, so maybe it just needs to be charged...I hope...
So since plans changed, I will reverse everything and get ready for my sister today, and then do whatever I have to do tomorrow. It is a good day for tea and scones...(saw that on another site) so after this hectic day, I will make the boys some scones tonight...
See you later,
