My Bath Salts Aren't The Drug-Type
Yesterday I was good and got all of the big cleanng chores done before I went out to buy milk and a few things. I was surprised at how mild it was when I finally got out to the street wearing far too much clothing, of course. I came home, put away the things I'd bought and got a load ready for the washer. I then decided to take the paper I'd collected over the week to the paper bank only to be knocked about from a cold wind this time out. One of my friends from facebook posted a cartoon depicting the weather in different parts of the States and then the weather in Kentucky - 4 seasons in a day. We had at least two yesterday in Madrid. Today we've got a cold drizzle. I'm glad to be inside warm and with the place clean. I doubt this will make Monday any more bearable though. I'll let you know.
One of my friends has complained that even though classes didn't start until 8th January, January has been a long month with 4 weeks to work. I suppose this is true, but for me February has always been the long month. In February it seems a long time since we were on holiday, and, of course, there are no official holidays. There is going to be a third General Strike since September on 23rd, which is a Saturday. I don't know why the trade unions have decided to strike on a Saturday. 23-F is a well-known date in Spanish history.
I hope Terri is feeling better today though I fear she isn't as I haven't seen her on facebook, and she hasn't posted anything on blogger yet. I pray that she's soon better and that everyone has a good week.
