Well today a lot of things have been happening, one of those things has been happening for a while now.  It seems the Bronco’s have signed on Peyton Manning as their new QB, which means from what I’ve heard that they will be trading Tim Tebow.  This kind of sucks, but I guess is kind of understanding, but still it sucks.  Tebow is a great QB, and I hope if he is being traded that he’ll be going home to Florida.  Apparently he misses his home and the south and Florida.  I hope and pray that he makes it back to Florida where he can once again be happy and be around his roots and his family.  Best of luck and prayers to you Tim Tebow! You will most definitely be missed here in Denver if you do head back home to Florida to one of the teams there.  Hope the Jaguars get you since that seems to be closer to your heart and soul.  God be with you.

Now on to other things :).

Spring is definitely here but some of Colorado is still receiving some snow, but thankfully not us here in Denver.  The sky is bright blue and the sun is bright and warm, sadly though the temp only hit 49 degrees here, but still it’s the typical weather for a Colorado spring! It is so nice to live up here in Denver, CO and I enjoy all of it!  Soon enough we will be hopefully driving up into the mountains to enjoy the wonderful spring weather and watching as the world comes awake from the deep slumber of Old Man Winter! Our weather though will be back up in the 60s and 70s before to long again. 🙂

Another thing that comes with spring though is the pollen that is going rabid around here right now.  The tree pollen is very HIGH and Denver has been on High Pollen Alert for over a week now.  So far I’ve not had any hard effects of Allergies hit me, but I know they are just around the corner.  Thankfully I’ve got Allegra, Sudafed and Zyrtec, and NO I do not mix the allergy pills.  It depends on the state of my sinuses and how I’m feeling which one I will take.  I do know that once I start being hit hard by the pollen and allergies, that I will most likely stick to my 24 hour stuff and not the lower hour stuff.  I only take any of my pills when I absolutely need them and that hasn’t been often yet.

I love spring time but I do not like allergy season that comes with it, but I will suffer through it if I need to.  I thankfully don’t break out in a rash like some people do and the likes.  My allergies ain’t that serious, and I’m thankful I’m up here in Colorado instead of in Arkansas now.  Man my allergies were horrible down there in Arkansas cause there are thousands of pine trees around and not that many here in Colorado.  The pine tree is after all the state tree down there in Arkansas while the dog wood is the state blossom, the diamond the state jewel and the mockingbird the state bird.  The pine tree pollen was murderous on my sinuses and everything while I was living there, I couldn’t even open up the darned windows or door without pollen being blown in and we had to start using the air conditioners earlier then ever down there cause of not only the pollen but the sticky icky humidity.

Let me tell you how bad that pollen was or is, if you have a car and haven’t driven it or washed it yet, when the pine trees pollinated there could be inches of yellow green pollen on the surface, let along that is what we were breathing in down there during the season and when we coughed it up it was a very ugly color and we had to take showers every day just to get the pollen off us, let alone cool down from the humidity.  Which is why I’m not  sad about missing the south, especially Arkansas.  It’s a beautiful place to live, but you have a lot you have to deal with down there during any time of the year from severe weather to humidity and pollen and the likes to ice storms and heat waves.

I’m very happy to live in Colorado, there is hardly if NO humidity here, and the pollen isn’t that bad here, except maybe up in the mountains where all the Ash trees and other trees are at, but still it’s beautiful and breathtaking here in Colorado. I might eventually post some old photos that I made over the years to the posts here in the near future just to show the beauty of the place.  From spring to winter.  Sadly the only summer time pics I might be able to post would be something dealing with fireworks and the likes, but until I’m ready to start doing that, well ya’ll will just have to be satisfied with what I type here. LOL :). Now onto other news :).

Recently there was a major wild grass fire in Eastern Colorado around Yuma.  Apparently some very old homes lived in for generations were caught in the fire and burned down.  Years and memories of their lives gone in a puff of smoke.  We get some powerful winds here and when they start gusting like they do it can get very deadly here.  With the grass still brittle from winter and not yet lush enough for spring everything around here is tinder waiting for one little spark or cigarette to land on it, and when it happens combustion insews and the fire starts eating everything in sight.  Thankfully they were able to contain the fire and get it out, but there were a few firefighters that were injured in the process, and thank God they weren’t any worse then they were and not killed in the flames.  I send my prayers out to those who lost everything and hope that they can recover and make a go at it again. Next news from my end :).

My man and I watched the first show of season 14 Dancing With The Stars last night and man there are some good competition in it this year with some actual STARS involved.  All the ones we watched except for one, will definitely be in the running for that Cheesy Mirror Ball Trophy, so far I’ve got at least 4 couples I’m routing for, but that will change as the season goes on. Best of luck to all couples in Season 14 of Dancing With The Stars! Next on my list :).

Our “cousin” Rikki has adopted a beautiful grey and white kitty who is around 5 months old.  She’s beautiful and adorable.  According to Rikki, Cloud (that’s her cats name), finally came out from under the bed to explore some and eat some.  Rikki also says that Cloud is very talkative and that she and Cloud do converse with each other :).  I don’t know the breed, but she is very beautiful.  Oh don’t take me wrong, our own cat Penny is very special and beautiful to us as well.  We just love animals, especially the cats and dogs.

My man has had his share of exotic pets, as he posted once before on his blog about, but mostly my pets dealt with cats and dogs.  I had dogs my entire life until 1997, then I got me a cat, but we still had dogs as well.  The dogs were my dads of course and mine as well, but they were mostly dads.  We still help my dad out in that area if he needs food for them.  I’ll be meeting more of the extended woof woof family that my dad has gotten since living in Illinois.  I’ll be hopefully seeing him this summer with a number of other family members, including some of my fiancee’s family members.  I hope this summer will be good for us to be able to do this.  I miss my family and it’s been like 2 or 3 years now since I last saw them. Now onto the final news.

My “sister” Naja went to her cardiac doctor the other day, and has now got clearance to be able to get the hysterectomy she seriously needs right now.  I will keep my prayers with her and her family as she goes through each step to get that done and send my love their way.  Love you all!

Sorry about that everyone.  Um lol.  My man decided to read my post and discovered some words that needed to be fixed, so I had to delete the entire post and replace it with a more up to date with correct words in the post! Oh well lol! 🙂 It’s done and I guess from here on out I need to do the post on notepad or notebook to make sure I put the correct words in there before I post from here on out :). LOL.

Ok well for now I think I need to close out this very long winded post that I’ve just done. LOL! 🙂 Hope everyone enjoys the things I’ve posted, and I hope your seasons and weather where you live are treating you well.  God bless everyone!

Finally after my bought of frustration the other day, I’m a little more relaxed.  I actually didn’t run into any drama over XBOX. Thank goodness, but sadly yes we can’t avoid drama for it is a part of our lives.

Penny actually behaved herself yesterday, she didn’t get to Hurricane Penny status that day and was rather relaxed and was enjoying the attention and sunning herself from time to time.  Now as for today, I haven’t seen anything yet, but then Hurricane Penny could show up out of no where and cause chaos again. LOL.  Love that furry, four legged, black and white child (kitty)  of ours 🙂 even if she can be a handful at times :).  Maybe with that big speaker almost falling on her she kind of said whoa I need to chill or not get up there any more for now. hehe :).

Well this morning I went in and got my Pro-Time checked, and it was a 2.7, which is right in the area my doctor wants it to be.  My blood sugar and the likes has been in the 120s but would be better with more sleep :).  I’ve been doing fairly well of late and my blood pressure has been like 90 something over 60 or 70 something :).

Right now I’m relaxing before I check my blood pressure before I start to eat my big breakfast with hot cakes from McDonald’s with one milk and one OJ :).  These are one of the rare occasions that I get the chance to get breakfast.  Usually after the doctor office visit :). My man is on his way into work, and hopefully it is within the time frame he said he’d be out of the office.  He did get all the work or most of the work he was working on last night done, and that’s a good thing.  He even ordered himself some breakfast so we both have breakfast to eat.  He dropped me off at home and then headed out.  🙂

I played plenty on Wizards yesterday and after I got off there with my sister last night, I got my shot and pills taken.  Sadly I got on XBOX for a little while and played for about 2 1/2 or 3 hours, then remembered, damn I have to get my Pro-Time checked in the morning, then got off there and went to bed.  Now it’s time to relax and deal with a few games on Face Book and the likes before I eat.  Until next time (when ever that will be)! 🙂

Ok so now I’m frustrated to the point of crying right now.  Penny has been misbehaving today and she finally made me blow my gasket.  No I didn’t hurt her or anything, but she went and knocked off one of the big speakers in the master bedroom.

Now lets hope she learns not to do that again.  I just hope that my man will be in a good mood to deal with Hurricane Penny.  I’ve had to shut off the master bedroom to keep her out of it, now lets hope her destructive hyper active mood doesn’t wind up destroying our computer network.  I just don’t know what the hell has gotten into her this morning and I don’t even want to find out.  She’s been batting at things again and I haven’t even run my electric razor for almost a week.

I probably have everyone in the apartment building wondering what the hell that was with me yelling at her and the patio door wide open.

God give me strength to get over what ever the hell has frustrated me today.  I slept at least 8 hours yet how the hell can I be over tired again.

Maybe it was all the drama happening over xbox last night, so I’ll be avoiding it for a little while.  I SERIOUSLY HATE DRAMA.

Hell it’s also probably my horrible mood swings because I’ll be starting soon and the PMS is really going to be bad this month.  Maybe even my cycle.  Hell I don’t know any more.

I SERIOUSLY hate being like this.  I’m usually never like this PERIOD, but for some reason it’s like right there on the edge of blowing up. *sighs*

As for the drama on XBOX last night, lets just say I will not pick friends over other friends.  One friend says he doesn’t like this group cause of something they do, yet when that group I play with a few of them from that group doesn’t.  I don’t know what the hell they did to each other, but seriously folks please stop dragging me into the middle of the drama.  I like everyone I play with on there, but damn it I won’t choose over one or the other but if you don’t want to be my friend cause I’m friends with another person that you don’t like get over it ok and you can easily remove me from your list and it won’t be no skin off my nose.

I get on xbox to RELAX and have FUN not to be mean and the likes.  XBOX IS JUST A GAME CONSOLE WITH GAMES STOP TAKING THE SHIT SO DAMN SERIOUSLY! IT’S A GAME FOR FUCK SAKE GET OVER IT!!!!!!!

Anyways, I might have more to deal with later but honestly I don’t give a fuck about it and if people find my blog, especially this one bad cause of the cuss words I DO NOT CARE.  I have a right to type what I want and this is adult language in so many blogs out there it shouldn’t be no issue to ANYONE.  Free speech after all! God Bless America for that!

It’s getting to be that time of the year again when the weather is starting to warm up and the nights don’t get to chilly.

I’d love to be able to sleep with my windows open, especially in the summer time to save on the electric bill, but sadly that won’t be happening when you live in the lower half of an apartment complex and your windows and the patio are level with the ground.  Even when offered by the maintenance to set up something that would allow us to at least have some windows open, but someone is worried about someone breaking into the apartment. *sighs*

That is the reason I wish we could move to a second floor apartment, but he won’t do it and I’d gladly walk up and down stairs just to be able to keep the windows open at night, but that is never going to happen.

I love my man to death, but there are some things that are frustrating and that is one of them.  I don’t blame him for not liking to move, hell who loves moving from a good location to another location.  No one really.

I guess I’ll just have to be happy with having the door and window open during the day instead of having the light bill go up.  I some times wish to hell there was never no crime in our world, but if that was possible the world would be too perfect instead of like it is now and would also be over crowded by more people.  I seriously hate crime that stops people from being able to sleep in peace with windows open at night in apartment complexes especially those who live on the lower ground level apartments.

Crime all together SUCKS! But then some things just are I guess. *sighs*

Ahh spring has pretty much sprung here in Colorado, but we have yet to know if there will be snow in the near future to give us a final blast of Old Man Winter.

I’m sitting here on the couch in front of the patio door, and I just opened it.  If I could take out the sounds of the city driving I’d be even happier, but sadly I do live in the southern part of Denver.

I’m listening to a male sparrow calling out for a mate and it’s a beautiful sound.  The sparrow is in the pine tree outside the patio.

We have the same family of sparrows coming back to next and make a home in the bush outside the computer room window, to bad it hasn’t been fixed or I’d have it open for the cat to enjoy the view all the more.

Yes that reminds me lol.  The sparrow that is hunting for a mate decided to fly down to the patio flooring and Penny jumped off the back of the couch and pounced the glass.  She wasn’t happy that she couldn’t have that bird for lunch or din din. LOL.

The sparrow flew up to the railing of the patio and sat there for a while looking down at Penny, and I swear I think he was laughing at her.  Poor Penny just sat down there on the floor eying the sparrow and started her insane chirping and meowing she uses when she sees a bird so ripe for picking and she can’t get it. Hehe, so I went ahead and feed her some food.

Now back on subject here, the temps here in the mile high city have been in the 60s and 70s and will continue in the neck of the woods at least until next Monday, when the temps start to slip back into the upper and mid 50s.  We are also suppose to be getting rain as far as I can see Tuesday and Weds.

Here in Denver there is really no telling what the weather will do at this time of year.  It could snow or it could be tornadic and the likes do to severe weather, so we basically just go with things day by day and enjoy the weather when it’s just right :).  My outdoor allergies will soon start up, and soon I’ll be suffering from both indoor and outdoor allergies, but thankfully I’ve got the allergy medicine that covers both :).

I’m just going to sit back, eat something and enjoy the mix of outdoor life with my country music.  I hope spring will be wonderful to others and to those who get the really bad weather, God will be watching over you, and I hope all survive, though some might not, but at least try your best to stay alive out there.

Have a wonderful day and enjoy it when you can and breath in the clean air and get ready to plant your gardens :).  ENJOY!

Ok I KNOW there are a lot of people out there with very refined taste in music, but honestly, I can NOT stand opera.

Opera to some is pure sweet music, but to me it sounds like a bunch of yallowing cats.  Now the music without the singers is WONDERFUL but when you add in the singers my poor ears will bleed.

Yes lots of people will be like, no it’s not, but then for a country girl who isn’t rich and has a simple life all her life says yes opera sucks!

I enjoy music like everyone else, all but opera and some of the rap out there just ain’t so great.

I enjoy jazz, blues, 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s and some of the 90s and today music.  I also love country, rock, big band, classical and more, but I will NEVER enjoy Opera unless it’s just the symphony or Orchestra playing, but I won’t listen if they throw in the screaming and yallowing cats.  They sound like they are in heat, seriously, I’ve had a cat that wasn’t fixed, I know what it’s like, I’ve heard tom cats getting into fights and I’ve heard big cats.  That’s what those singers sound like to me, especially if they aren’t singing in English.  If it was English maybe I’d like it cause I’d probably try to understand it, but still NO THANKS.

The only time I truly hear the opera is on Saturdays on the Classic station I enjoy listening to and going to sleep to, but do you know what it’s like to be woke from a solid sleep by a cat fight and the likes! I do and I don’t like it. LOL

Anyways that’s my say on things dealing with Opera.  🙂

For those who live here in the USA, most if not all of us have to change our clocks an hour ahead tonight before we head to bed.

In other words, people, we will lose an hour of sleep tonight in the wee hours of the morning.

Spring forward one hour and Fall back an hour this Fall.  The date is from March 11, 2012 to November 4, 2012.

I don’t mind the one hour loss, but my man will have to readjust so that he has enough sleep to make it to work, but it’s great to know that Spring is almost here.

I’m very much tired of winter right now, the snow is lovely and relaxing to watch, but the temps are annoying as hell and if you get cabin fever bad like I do.  Ugh.

So remember people, to set those clocks one hour ahead tonight just before you go to bed so those of you who go to church won’t miss it and to make sure you aren’t late for work this weekend and Monday :).
