Spring is Around the Corner

20130319-083317.jpgI think this says “EVERYTHING” about what I’m feeling – spring is near and around the corner.

I SO CAN’T WAIT!!  It’s time for this little piggy to come out of some hibernation and start moving again.  I miss the days of running throughout the Hotel Thompson and chasing playing with the purr things.  I just know they’ve missed me too.

And with Spring – you know what else comes – all the wonderful fruits of the season.  Oh, it makes my little mouth water so much.

Is everybody with me on this Spring thing??

XOXO – Bacon

Mother Nature Where Art Thou?

Someone forgot to upload Spring in the Earth.  Help please.  It’s raining here.  It’s cold again.

Spring where are you?

Come Here Spring!

Dearest Mother Nature – Really?  This weather you are throwing at us is outrageous.  One day it’s in the 70’s and the next day it’s in the 30’s.  Daddy says you are going through – what did he call it? – menopause.  He says that’s the only way to explain the vast difference in temperatures.  I can’t tell you what mommy called it – it was a bad word.

Yesterday here it was beautiful.  It was the first day it hasn’t rained.  Which by the way it has rained so much that I think I’m sprouting feathers and quacking now instead of oinking.  Today when mom went to work, it was so dark I thought it was night.  Nope, it was the same time that she usually leaves.  It was dark because it looked like the sky was fixing to fall out with thunderstorms.  Lovely.

And let me tell you about Albert, mom’s Smart car.  Mommy has not driven him in 8 days.  Why?  Because with your winds, your rain, your up and down temperatures, dad thought mom would be safer in Tank, the other car.  So you see now Mother Nature you are ticking off Albert.  He wants to run and he can’t.

 You know there are medicines that you can take for these mood swings.  If they don’t help, maybe you need to see a professional instead of taking this out on everyone in the world.  I’m just sayin’.

Do You Hear that Noise?

Do you hear that noise?  I don’t either.  Smiles broadly, sighs happily and stretches hooves without fear.  We all slept in here this morning at the Hotel Thompson.  It was quiet.  It had such a free feeling – no one was tiptoeing around.  No one was hiding.  No one was scared to turn the corner into another room.  Such a grand feeling.

Good bye Don Juan.

May you have safe travels for another year far, FAR away from the Hotel Thompson.  May frost bite nip at your toes.  May your hat get stuck in a paper shredder.  May you get safely tucked away deep in a box in a time capsule and buried somewhere by a dog.

I don’t wish you ill will – really I don’t.  I just wish you everything that you have so generously bestowed upon us here this year at the Hotel Thompson.  In fact, I wish you a double dose.

Until next year my evil little nemesis – take care.  I know I will be sleeping better!

You Know What They Say…

Do you know what they say about the grass is always greener on the other side?  Or here’s another one – be careful what you wish for?  Yeah, I think I stepped four hooves right into this problem.  I wanted Spring.  Spring is here.  The weather is warmer than Winter… there’s a nice breeze outside… the birds are chirping… the grass is green.  What could be wrong you ask?

One word.

Yep, that six lettered dirty word – POLLEN.  In the south, it’s bad.  I mean really bad.  Today’s forecast:

Total Pollen Count for 4/11/2014: 4054

That’s really high.  That means everything is yellow… or like mom calls it pollinated.   The itchy, watery eyes.  The sneezing.  The can’t breathe because your throat is full of pollen.  And, you can taste it.  Really, you can.  Who wants to go outside and roll around in the grass with all of this out there?  Perhaps I should have been more specific with Mother Nature about Spring?  Daddy has to wear a mask outside when he ventures out.  Between us – he kind of looks like a human wearing a snout – snorts.  And snouts – I’m not going out in my magical backyard until this pollen goes away.  I don’t care how much the unicorn and bigfoot plead for to come play.

Do you have pollen?  Are you a sufferer?  They say it will last for a couple of weeks until everything ‘blooms’.  Until then, welcome to Sprinollen… yep that’s what I’m going to call it.

The *Best* Sign I’ve Seen for Spring

 OMP (oh my pig!)  This is too funny.  I’m hoping that sprinter (combination of spring and winter) is almost over.  I saw this sign and couldn’t resist.  I squealed and rolling around laughing so much that mom thought I was having a seizure.  Daddy was ready to call 911 and tell them that we had a piggy down here at the Hotel Thompson.  Aren’t they just too funny – snorts.

So, are ya’ll so excited that you can wet your plants?  PLOL (piggy laughing out loud). 20140330-184003.jpg

Happy First Day of Autumn!

Yeah – the cooler weather is finally getting here.  I just love Autumn – or Fall – whichever you prefer.  I love the cooler weather.  I love that it means that it’s almost the holidays.  And this year, mom says it means I can run and jump in the leaves in the back yard.  I totally can’t wait.

Autumn/Fall also means that it’s almost time for mom/dad’s vacation.  Most people go on holiday in the summer.  Not my parents.  They go in the fall.  Why?  Less people and cheaper accommodations is what what they say.  What can I tell you – mommy believes in saving money wherever she can.  So, fingers and hooves crossed, they get their holiday this year.  It’s been a while since they got off together to the beach.  Which also brings us to the most important question.  Who is going to watch this piglet while they go on holiday?  That’s an important question.  I’m off to inquire.

Happy Autumn my friends!  XOXO – Bacon

Officially Summer

20130601-003437.jpg

June 21 is the official day of Summer –

Yay for Summer being here – boo for the heat.  No one likes the heat.  Heat is bad.  Momma says its swimsuit season.  Heck it should be because too much clothes and you would burn up!  Thank goodness Hotel Thompson has air conditioning.

20130601-003448.jpg

 

I guess some of my pig friends have the right way in life.  Pull up a chair, crawl in and take a siesta outside in nature.  It is one way to get a little sun on your skin.  Me, I’d rather stay inside surrounded by air… cool air that is.

 

20130601-003503.jpg

But with the heat, you also get some amazing munchies… like strawberries.  My friend here has the right ideal.  Get a bowl of those delicious berries, settle up to it and have your own eating competition.  Doesn’t he look like he’s grinning there because he’s so happy? snorts

For some reason, I’m craving strawberries now. I wonder why?

 

Whatever you decide to do today to kick off Summer, enjoy it and have a safe day my friends.
