My feet, and many other feet, chased out the Nain Rouge this afternoon. The Nain Rouge is responsible for all Detroit’s problems, and every year there is a great parade. The Nain Rouge showed up and taunted us, riding his huge cockroach, and we chased him away for another year!These are just a few of the wonderful folks that helped us get rid of the Nain Rouge. I’ll have more photos at a later date!
It has been wonderful watching things emerge from under the snow and ice. The new year starts in January, but I think that’s only to give us something to celebrate during the dark winter months. This is the new year, new life, more light. I love the days getting longer, the sun on my face. Nothing helps your mood more than a walk, between the air, the sun and the exercise, it is a sure way the beat the blues. This is Michigan, we never know what we will get tomorrow, so go out and take a walk. Enjoy the sun while it shines, and breathe some fresh air. It will do you good.
Every fall we put our outdoor potted plants in the unheated sun room, and most of them make it through the winter. This year, the protection of the walls wasn’t enough, too many below zero temps have killed off most of them. Usually I can keep the geraniums over the winter, but this spring we’ll buy new. I’m looking forward to spring. Meanwhile, here’s two cats that are too tired to fight.
