Twilight Zone Days...

Some days I wake up and wonder if I am having a horrible Twilight Zone dream.  So many odd things have happened in the past few weeks.  A young woman was found dead at August Bush IV's mansion here in St. Louis and just a few days after the death, the news is reporting about a movie that someone wants to make about it.  Who will star August Bush IV?  Shocking!  If you haven't heard the headlines you can read some of it here.  The movie gossip... I saw on the evening world news.  What shocks me about this is the speediness of all this movie talk so soon after the young woman's death.
Next we have the oddest weather ever... with a tornado that killed 7 people.  One report said 6 and another said 7.  On New Year's Eve.  I think the temperature got up to 70 that day. Something green was growing out of one of our flower pots, and some moss in between our rocks.

Just a week or two before this is what it looked like out our window.  With single digit temperatures.

Then the other day Bob and I noticed a large amount of robins all over the neighbors yards and then they came to our yard.  I tried to take a movie of them, but it didn't turn out very well.  They were pecking at the ground like they were possessed or starving or something.   We commented that we have never seen robins migrate here like that.  Especially in January.  I woke up to this news today.

Thankfully I received a very nice Christmas gift this year.  This  back and shoulder wrap with moist heat and scented with the most heavenly smell.  It is filled with rice, eucalyptus, cloves and cinnamon.  I plan on using this often.
