Not really but it certainly feels like it sometimes.
People around here always say, “If you don’t like the weather in New England just wait a minute.” As I type it is snowing out – yup – snow. Not much – flurries – oh what a difference a day makes.
I was going to tell you how my day went yesterday and I thought to myself “They are not going to believe me.” , “They are going to think I am crazy.” but I said to myself, “fuck it – tell them.” ……………so……………here goes.
Drove to the farm yesterday excited about the thought of being there again after a long time and looking forward to seeing the animals and picking up some fresh food. Do you want to guess what they were doing? Go ahead….guess! Wrong………….they were filming a motherfucking Hollywood movie and Vince Vaughn was the star. They tell me I can still walk around and see the animals and go to the green house but a lot of the farm was shut down for shooting. At first I was kind of pissed. Like who the fuck is Vince Vaughn to decide to film a movie on what might be the last visit to the farm for me? Then – you know me – I have to choice my battles wisely – so I just went with the flow.
So, I spend some time walking around, watched them film the same freaking screen over and over again and then picked up an acorn squash, a tiny homemade apple pie (one of the things I like about this farm they sell these little tiny pies for 1 or 2 people) and some maple sugar candy. I very rarely cook for myself – it is hard to cook for one. But I cooked that acorn squash last night and ate the whole fucking thing…..ugh….mistake.
I stopped at Walden Pond on the way home but didn’t spend nearly as much time there as I would have liked to before it started to get dark. Hopefully I will get there again.
I am not feeling well today – bad bad cough – my chest hurts – didn’t sleep to well. Comes with the territory I guess.
Maybe I will do the big “do over” later this week and try visiting the farm and pond again. Until then I am in my usual couch position, finished my morning coffee and contemplating calling the doctor to see if he can give me something for the cough. Ugh.
