Can You Dig It?

Friday night and the man is off to the hunting camp, just to spread feed and nail up a ladder and oh, hell, I don't know what. He took out of here with the four-wheeler on the trailer and the ladder in the back of the truck and, again, oh, hell. I don't know what.

Fridays have sure changed in the past decade for me.

Oh well. I just took a shower and washed my hair and put on an old dress and therefore I look more like a witch than ever. It's a black dress. You needed to know that, right? Linen. I think I got it at the Goodwill about ten years ago. I like linen for the absorbency factor. I sweat a lot.
Needless to say, I AM NOT WEARING A BRA!

It's supposed to get down into the FORTIES here tomorrow night. We'll probably all keel over from sheer shock. It was cooler today but still got up to ninety and if we think that's cooler, well, you can only imagine what we think when it's forty-something degrees lower than that.

I have meat marinating and bread rising. There's corn to grill and potatoes to bake. A salad to make.
Sometimes I get so tired of doing the same things over and over again.
Sometimes I love that. Sometimes I don't.

I believe that tonight I don't. I almost just want to go to bed now. Skip all the other stuff. The cooking, the eating, the washing up.

Gawd. Being human can be so tedious.

No wonder people like to drink and handle snakes and go to the circus.

I can dig it.


  1. Hi, Ms. Moon.

    I've been following this wonderful work of a blog for some time now, and I am positively in love with both it and you. You are something else. But you probably knew that.

    Let's be friends.

  2. Stephanie- I knew you could, darling.

    MurrBeth- I had no idea. But I am so glad you're here.

  3. "No wonder people like to drink and handle snakes and go to the circus."
    Oh yeah

  4. Nicol- :) back at ya.

    Anonymous- Hey you. Whoever you are. Give us a name or face. We'll love you.

  5. Life can indeed be tedious and thank god for differences. Good night Ms. Moon.

  6. I always thought it was bad planning on the part of the 'creator' to makes us have to eat so often. I say have pie and be done with it.

  7. Yes. On all of that. The sheer boredom.

  8. Ah, once more I bump into those snake handlers. Thinking that their God will save them when bitten. Some interesting people in the world. I would go for your dinner for sure! Sounds delice...

  9. Rubye Jack- And now, good morning, Rubye.

    Ellen Abbott- Or a yogurt.

    Elizabeth- And sometimes boredom is good. But not always.

    Photocat- It was good.

  10. I used to go to that church.

  11. Madame King- I would love to see you handle a serpent. Oh yes I would.

  12. I think it's time to say Fuck It and go to bed. You are dutiful but some things can wait.

  13. Syd- I love it when you curse. God. I AM dutiful. Mostly.

  14. i love how when i first glanced at this picture...i thought everyone was playing instruments from the Big Band era...look at her with that giant sax, who would think a women dressed so dowdy would choose an instrument that screams pure sex?

    and the band leader...inspiring her to ROCK it! closer look, SNAKES and BIBLES...

  15. Ms. Bastard-Beloved- Because you are SANE!

    rebecca- I think it IS about sex.


Tell me, sweeties. Tell me what you think.
