Circle of life – This week I found a dead fish floating on top of my pond. I think it was Goldie. I’ve had her for about four years and have no idea why she died. There were no attack marks. I was in a hurry so I lifted her out and put her on the side of the pond expecting to give her a proper burial the next day. During the night, some other critter came to visit and had a filet of fish sandwich. She was gone the next morning. On the one hand, I’m sad that I didn’t give her a respectful burial but I helped another animal who has been struggling all winter with dinner.
Bellies – Jeans come up below the waist these days. I find that a hard place to fit because it’s the place that blows up when I eat and deflates when I don’t. I must be the only woman in the world with that problem.
Cars – I am considering a new car so we went to the local car show. I hate buying a car. All the research you have to do is a waste of time. My criteria — it has to be red, have a smart start button (keyless start), a back-up camera that works well and a low console. I like my car but it’s blue with a high console that makes me feel like I’m going to whack my elbow. Of course over the past four years that never happened but it’s in my head. Also, the storage areas on the console do not properly fit my Starbucks venti or my box of tissues. I am a woman of simple needs. The best part of the car show was lunch afterward.
Maybe it is spring – In our local paper there was a photo of a guy mowing his lawn. Our lawn hasn’t grown at all yet. In fact, it’s not quite green. Perhaps this is how he “cleans” off the winter debris. Either that or he is totally crazy.
And Morgan – A week is not complete without a note about the little
terror darling. There was a stampede, then a crash. I got up to view the damage and the little stinker was sitting nearby nonchalantly washing her paw as if nothing had happened. I need that attitude!
So how was your week?
