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!

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.  🙂
