I mentioned Tuesday that this has been a very wet winter and spring, resulting in the Super Bloom. It’s been a weird winter everywhere, with snow falling across the country in a way that I don’t remember ever happening before. That explains the desert rains we have had here. I guess I can’t complain about rain when other places are getting 12 inches of snow and frigid temps. Still, yesterday was a chilly and rainy day, very uncharacteristic for March in AZ. It really didn’t matter much to us, as we had no where to be. The rain will pass, but the temps will remain in the low to mid-70s for a bit. I guess I can’t complain about that. We’ll be heading back to Colorado soon enough. The temps there are comparable to ours here today, but March and April can also offer lots of snow.
Luck of the Irish
I did venture out yesterday in the rain to go to the grocery store. I am cooking my annual St. Patrick’s Day corned beef dinner, and I didn’t want to wait too long until the stores were out of the briskets. There were plenty of corned beef briskets at Fry’s and I bought two — the biggest one I could find and the smallest I could find. Between the two, I should have the perfect amount for my guests. Throw in some carrots, cabbage, and potatoes, and we have a perfect meal.
I heard on the news last night that the French Bulldog has surpassed the labrador retriever as America’s favorite dog. Personally, I have never been a fan of a flat-nosed dog. I understand that the Frenchie has become the fancy dog to own, but I will take a Yorkipoo like my sister’s Winston any day of the week.
