Spring Fever in January

It’s January 31st. At not yet 9:00 in the morning, it’s 56º F. It’s predicted to go up to 63º today. It’s been like that for days.

In January 2014, I was driving icy roads to get Barney to surgery. In December 2013, it went from the ’70’s one day to 12º the next and nearly a foot of snow on the ground.

In January 2011 likewise. It went from 74º one day to frozen solid the next. In February of that year, we were bracing for an ice storm, which we got.

So the weather’s crazy. Why should it be any different inside than out? It seemed right to break out Kim’s Chateau Dryden Special Reserve Nipatini.


Barney kept his head, waiting for the right time to make his move.

After the obligatory whappy-paws, this happened next.

About nadbugs

Anita loves cats. This must be because she, too, has had nine lives. She’s been dancing since she could walk, she was a commercial artist and advertising producer, she earned a third-degree black belt in Aikido, she is a drummer with the Afrique Aya Dance Company, she is an attorney, and she’s a meditator and a devoted student of Nonviolent Communication. She also spent one lifetime sidelined with a devastating back injury in 1992. Since then – FELDENKRAIS METHOD® to the rescue. The FELDENKRAIS METHOD is all about dreaming concretely – thinking intelligently and independently by way of a gracious and kind physicality. The work affords all who study it a process by which to reach, with movement, into the mind and the heart, to make nine lives into one whole being.
