For those who don't know, Fridays are cleaning days and laundry days. Because today is also a pay day, this is the day I spend the most money at my neighborhood Giant supermarket.
Right now the temps are in the mid 40's (F) and we're under a dense fog advisory. Believe me when I tell you the houses across the street are nothing more than looming shadows.
The temps are supposed to top off around 76 (F) today when the sun finally decides to pop out. Then I hope to get some planting down. Dahlias. I haven't bout them yet, but I'm thinking of buy a few elephant ear plants. They are nice and big, and take up a lot of lawn.
For those who watch Star Trek Discovery, wasn't Stacey Abrams cameo on the the season finale simply stunning? For those who didn't see it, she plays the President of Earth. Can this be cosmic foreshadowing?
Mark Meadows is under investigation for voter fraud. This is what happens when you lie about where you live in order to vote. I suspect his wife might be in the same predicament since, while he only voted once, she voted twice, one of those being a runoff election.
Biden is talking with Xi this morning. I suspect that Xi is not a very happy camper. You see back in early February he and Trump's blow bro pal Vlad put out a mutual statement saying they were eternally going to be having each other's backs. And, rumor has it, that while Xi knew Vlad was going to make an incursion into the Ukraine, an invasion of this extent was not communicated. In fact, it was until 2 days after Russian forces began shelling that the Chinese needed to get their Chinese Nationals out... fast. Relations between the US and China soured during the Trump presidency, so there is little doubt they will publicly oblige any requests Biden makes, however, this war, and the sanctions, have weakened Russia and the Chinese will probably see this as an advantage. This means that while they might give Vlad some aid, they're also going to put the screws to him. In fact, they might just punish old Vlad. Because of his stupidity, both the United States and NATO are now much stronger.
No matter how you want to look at it, all of this shit flows back to Trump. He's the one who worked to sour relations with China, and he's the one who bowed down to Vlad.
And, on a bright note, the sun has started to pierce its way through the fog.
