We need to placate them, some how. Human sacrifice used to work. In fact, I have a brother-in-law or two, that I would gladly offer up to the powers that be. However pleased the gods may be with them, (not) there are laws now against this type of appeasement.
What now? Well, I guess I could clean the house - but I did that for Easter - yes it warmed up a little. OK, maybe there is a message here. Also, I have been dutifully making interesting meals, thanks to all the people in my blogging groups who post such wonderful recipes. However, I've a sneaking suspicion, that the powers that be, are vegan so lamb roasts won't cut it.
Hmmm. Look we still haven't put away the snow shovels, so we shouldn't be punished for the hubris of believing that we could predict the weather with a few warm days. I swear I haven't planted a thing - just ignore those potted daffodils - they're for someone else :) I am still wearing my winter coat and I haven't put my gloves, hat or boots away! What other penance is needed?
|Snowdrops - a promise of Spring|
We recycle, we compost, I even sent my daughter to Thunder Bay (boreal country) in September for the winter and she swears, she loves it!! OK, so maybe I haven't given you my first born, but she is my only daughter.
I am really at a loss for what else is needed to invoke your mercy, placate your anger and call a truce to these winter storms, so that we can start weeding the garden!! Yes, there are other powers, that also need to be appeased, lest with the lovely weather, we are overrun with ugly weeds and hordes of bugs..... Damned if you do and damned if you don't.
Have a promising day!!
