The Sprinch / El Sprinch


Welcome to you, sweet reader.  Haha I do adore Grumpy Callie and so I have allowed her to introduce my latest blog entry.  Today I will be discussing why I do not look forward to the coming season of Spring.  In that spirit, I have named myself The Sprinch.

Bienvenido a usted, lector dulce. Jaja adoro Callie gruñón y así me he permitido que presento mi más reciente entrada en el blog. Hoy a discutir por qué no me mires hacia adelante para la próxima temporada de primavera. En ese espíritu, yo he nombrado el Sprinch.



Reason 1 --  When the weather gets warmer, the roads get much busier.  You might be surprised how slippery, icy, snowy roads keep many people at home.  It really frees up the roads for the rest of us :)

Razón 1 - Cuando el clima se pone más caliente, los caminos conseguir mucho más ocupados. Se sorprenderá cómo carreteras resbaladizas, heladas, nieve Mantén mucha gente en casa. Realmente libera los caminos para el resto de nosotros :)




Reason 2 -- The return of the bugs!!!  I have a slight phobia of all things creepy and crawly.  In spite of this, those little devils seem to enjoy attempting to share my home.  In the winter, they mostly tend to vanish leaving me with much great piece of mind.

Razón 2 - el regreso de los bichos!!!!!! Tengo una leve fobia de todas las cosas espeluznantes y espeluznantes. A pesar de ello, esos pequeños demonios parecen disfrutar de intentar compartir mi casa. En el invierno, en su mayoría tienden a desaparecer dejándome con mucho gran pedazo de la mente.




Reason 3 -- Allergies!!!  When the trees start to pollinate (and yes, they spelled it wrong above.  They are only tress after all :D) I get many symptoms I would much rather not endure.  Chief among them is rampant sneezing and itchy, watery eyes.  In the winter, no pollen, no allergies.

Razón 3 - alergias!!! Cuando los árboles comienzan a polinizar (y Sí, lo escribieron mal encima. Después de todo son sólo tress: D) tengo muchos síntomas lo haría mucho más bien no soportar. Entre ellos está rampante estornudos y comezón, ojos llorosos. En el invierno, no hay polen, no alergias.


Reason 4 -- Along those lines, my grass also starts to grow once more.  Despite my best efforts to kill it, each year it comes back stronger than before.  Growing grass means a mowing me.  A mowing me is not ideal.  Snow requires no mow.

Razón 4--A lo largo de esas líneas, mi hierba también empieza a crecer una vez más. A pesar de mis esfuerzos para matarlo, cada año viene volver más fuerte que antes. Pasto creciendo significa una siega me. Un césped me no es lo ideal. Nieve no requiere cansancio.





Reason 5 --  Perhaps the most important reason to resist Spring, tights disappear back into closets for the next 6 to 7 months.  The long drought begins!  But perhaps I am too harsh on Spring.

Razón 5--quizás la razón más importante para resistir la primavera, medias desaparecen en armarios para los próximos 6 a 7 meses. Comienza la larga sequía. Pero tal vez soy demasiado duro en primavera.





OK, Spring.  I suppose you can go ahead and come.  Where else can I take such pictures of gorgeous blooms like these?  I have my tissues, my bug spray, my patience, someone to mow my lawn, and a Tumblr full of wonderful tights pictures (with almost 500 followers now by the way!!! The link to it is here :D   ) so I am ready and prepared to take the bad with the good :)

Thank you so much for your kind visit and your wonderful comments.  They really make my days so bright and you are all so important to me :)  Big hugs!!!

Bueno, la primavera. Supongo que puedes ir y venir. ¿Dónde más puedo tomar esas fotos de hermosas flores como estas? Tengo mis tejidos, mi insecticida, mi paciencia, alguien a cortar mi jardín y un lleno de medias maravillosas fotos de Tumblr (con casi 500 seguidores ahora por cierto!!! El enlace que está aquí: The Hose Garden :D) Así que estoy listo y preparado para tomar el mal con el bien :)

Gracias por su amable visita y sus maravillosos Comentarios. Realmente hacen mis días tan brillante y eres tan importante para mí :) Abrazo!!!

I enjoyed reading about why you're such a sprinch. I can totally identify with all of them even if we do not have the 4 seasons here. I love it when the cold help to keep the traffic away! And it's nice of you to be so understanding towards the trees' spelling. Are those flowers taken in your garden? So beautiful!

Uh... I'm confused about the tumblr. It sounded like you have a tumblr page and so I clicked to visit but click after click of "next page", all I see are fashion bloggers modelling their clothes and that made me uncertain if that tumblr account belongs to you.

I will leave a new comment about my giveaway and reply coz I do not want this comment to look too long.

RYC:
I'm here to reply anyway. =) Thank you for your kind words, dear Rick. I feel so much better reading all the kind and lovely words from all of you. =) I'm recovering slowly physically, left with the the occasional cough now.

I'm not able to send a virtual emoticon breakfast to you so I hope a virtual 3D kitty latte would do. You could share it with Cali and Buddy. (=^・ェ・^=)

On my giveaway:
It's great to see you (whom I've considered my frequent reader and blog friend) taking part! It's really cool to see a guy taking part too and so sweet of you to try to win these for your lady friend. Truly sweet!

Please note that I have removed the Rafflecopter widget due to a technical fault of not being able to retrieve your data. Sorry for any inconvenience caused. Could you please enter following my updated instructions? You could reply under your comment on that for easier reference. Thanx a lot!

Hi! Ha ha indeed! You started off as the anti-post to mine! Insects are annoying as is the inability to sleep! My friend Jo always used to dread summer for the allergy reason! Good conclusion though! X

Me ha encantado el post de hoy. Realmente yo adoro la primavera y el verano. Adoro el sol, el buen tiempo, el calor y la playa en esta época del año. Me encanta que los días tengan más horas de luz, que todo el mundo salga a la calle a disfrutar, oír que los pájaros cantan, que los perros ladran felices, que la gente chapotea en la piscina... en definitiva, que la gente vive más y disfruta más de la vida. Adoro la cantidad de planes que se pueden hacer con buen tiempo y el moreno de la piel tras tomar el sol. Todos somos más guapos en verano! Yo también soy alérgica pero a decir verdad, lo paso peor con las lluvias... viva el buen tiempo!!

Those flowers are at a local museum from a few summers back. Raided an old blog post of mine for them.

My Tumblr is a fun story. I had a regular one and kept up on it well. When I started surfing fashion blogs, I found amazing pictures, so many, that I wanted to keep but did not want to take up hard drive space. Answer? make a 2nd Tumblr as just a warehouse for these shots. It was just meant for me! And now, 509 other souls have followed it. And all I do it post pictures and links to them. It is a real phenomenon indeed.

Ooh the giveaway. That change confused me so let me see if I can figure it out.

Thanks so much, dear, but that sweet lady is not my girlfriend. To quote Sheldon Cooper, she is a girl, she is a friend, but she is not my girlfriend :) My girlfriend is a vampire and therefore not able to be photographed :)
