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.  🙂
