#JusJoJan gets dirty

So, what is Linda up to today? Let’s see:

Your prompt for JusJoJan 2019, January 29th is brought to you by Jim! Click here to find his last post and say hi while you’re there! Jim’s word for our prompt today is “dirty.” Use it anywhere in your post or make it the theme of your post. And remember, if it’s not safe for work, please mention that fact either early on or in the title of your post. Have fun!

That prompt made me laugh. The best husband (Jeremy Clarkson voice) in the world and I watched BBC Breakfast this morning and Luise Minchin, one of the presenters, said to the weather lady that she had mentioned the “S-Word”.

The husband started laughing because he thought of the dirty meaning of an ” s-word” while Luise only meant “snow”. I love snow as I mentioned over at Carol Anne’s “Therapy Bits“. The husband loves snow too, however, it has a bit of a bitter taste for him. He is the groundskeeper of a nearby hospital which means he has to get in earlier if it snows or is icy to grit the path up to the hospital. It sits on a hill and people just can’t get up if it’s not gritted.

The street up to the hospital (it is a private mental health hospital) is a private street and won’t be gritted nor freed of snow so it might mean no one can get in anyway. We’ll see. We have a Landrover Discovery so it won’t be a problem for him to get in. Handy for his employer ;-).

Is there another “dirty” meaning for me?

I have to admit I like to get my hands dirty. We have quite a bit of garden and it is my chosen task to do the weeding. No idea why I like doing it. I find it very soothing and calming to go through the flower- and vegetable beds and pick out weeds. The best husband (Jeremy Clarkson voice) in the world is a gardener and always looks at me in astonishment: “Why don’t you use the hoe” he asks. And I answer: “I don’t know! I like to get my hands dirty!” which always makes him grin. The heavens only know what he might be thinking…. 😉

10 months ago we had a shit load of snow. Well, at least for this neck of the woods ;-). We loved it and went out a lot but I doubt tonight’s snow is supposed to be as bad even though there is a yellow weather warning out for snow and ice. We’ll survive I guess 😉
