Good Tuesday Morning.

You may find yourself really feeling like the black sheep, donna lee. And it may well be something you've known before. Don't let this get you down. Even if you don't fit the norm, would you really want to? Yours is usually a distinct and unique approach, much to the envy of those around you (even if they don't openly say so). Celebrate who you are. After all, you can't be anyone else.

I get my horoscope in my email every morning and I read them every morning.  Most mornings I half read them because they're so vague and meh.  If I had a "meeting of people with like minds" at my house as often as the horoscope says I should, I'd be a regular entertaining queen!

This morning's however, was a little interesting.  It's kind of what my mother used to call a "left handed compliment", something that isn't necessarily said in a positive way but is meant in an overall positive manner.  I never think of myself as the black sheep (that doesn't have much of a positive connotation, now does it?).  I think of myself as pretty much just one of the crowd.  I do sometimes find myself wondering why someone thinks the way that they do because I can't see where they're coming from but usually a few well thought out questions can clear it up for me. 

Evidently, today I'm supposed to feel like I'm separate from the crowd and like it.  I think I'll have to work on that one.  I like to fly below the radar here at work and keep a very low profile.  I do my job and help out where I'm needed but I am trying not to stand out.  People who stick their necks out can get them chopped off around here.  So, wish me luck.

I'm putting in a request for a vacation day tomorrow just in case I need it.  If we get a foot of snow, getting to work will be very difficult.  It gets hard to dig out the car and to dig through the 3 feet of snow the plow will leave at the bottom of the driveway.  Since the snow is supposed to fall all night and stop sometime tomorrow morning, it's just easier this way.  If the storm passes us with a light dusting, I'll just come in to work.  If not, then I have a preapproved day and it's not a dreaded occurrence.

And let's all spare some thought today for the victims of the Queensland floods.  That much water is unfathomable to me.  I hope the rains stop soon so the waters can recede but I think the forecast is for more and more rain.  My thoughts and prayers are with them all.

Good luck being the black sheep. Someone has to do it from time to time.

Sending you good thoughts about very little snow.

Did you get a horoscope intended for someone else maybe? I figure my folks have lied about my birthday because my horoscopes almost never fit.

I thought you said that when meeting with people of like minds, you would be entertaining the Queen regularly. HowDOES Liz like her tea?

Hope the snow fall is light (although a day at home does sound tempting too) and you manage to keep your head down at work.
