I was going to do the ceremonial first mowing of the yard today but with the storms last night and the corresponding cold front I guess I will have to put it off for a few days. I have come to enjoy mowing my 2 acre homestead; that is when I do my best thinking 🙂

As usual the Republicans are at it again. They are coming out in force to say how terrible Obama-care is but offering no solutions themselves. I guess they think they got the house back with this strategy so they will keep it up. They seem intense about giving insurance companies the right to deny coverage for “pre-existing conditions” and taking away possible healthcare from those who cannot currently afford it. Is this really what Americans want? If it is I am ashamed to call myself one.
It seems the Republicans are all over the map considering this Libya thing. But one thing they all agree with is that President Obama is WRONG one way or another. They are very good at showing wrong but not so much when it comes to what it takes to be right.

Our new kitten decided that my glasses, which I take off when at the computer, was his new chew toy! So it is off to Pearle Vision later this week to get a new pair.
Made it through another day at Backstreet. It is getting more challenging to come up with nutritious meals given the limited amount of food that is presently donated to the soup kitchen. It is sad to see times so hard for so many now.
A quiet before the storm… It is a quiet afternoon playing with my blogs. I need it as next week I will be preparing all the meals at Backstreet Missions soup kitchen. Sandy, the regular cook, is taking some much need time off with her family. I hope I survive all the standing up. 🙂
