Woo hoo summer came a callin’ – After an unusually warm winter we had a peep of summer. We set records – mega records. Like 30 degrees higher than normal records. (Our normal now is 50 degrees and we hit 80+ this past week.) It was great to peel off clothes. Then I saw a pasty white body. Time to get the self-tanner out. Well, maybe. Temps are going down but will still remain a good 10 degrees higher than normal. It’s March trying to be May.
Everyone’s frisky – The warm weather brought out the frogs. They were croaking to their lady love (I’m telling them it’s a little early but you know kids, they never listen. Wine ordered and Barry White concert scheduled.).
Dinner on the veranda! – We set a record. The screened porch is set up for summer. Furniture is out with cushions and we had our first dinner on the veranda! (Doesn’t that sound so much more civilized than porch?) We’ve never done it so early.
Unfriend me? – One of the first people who “friended” me on Facebook was a woman I knew slightly from 15 years ago. We weren’t friends and I hadn’t seen or heard from her since. I accepted. She uses FB as a pity place posting “I’m having a bad day” or “please pray for me” or “need a job, got any leads.” There was never a follow-up (like I got a job or thanks for your thoughts) although she might post “Mondays suck” which made me think she found a job and was already complaining. I eliminated notifications and only saw her stuff in my feed. One day she lashed out at her “FB friends” accusing us of not supporting her. She threatened to unfriend anyone who hasn’t been supportive (which I think means replying “poor baby” or something similar). That was about four months ago. I just realized I don’t see her anymore. She must have unfriended me. Imagine that? A caring sensitive person like me? She never commented on anyone else’s page or responded to any questions. Sayonara baby!
Best place to work! – My last company (before I retired) was awarded the best mid-sized company to work for in my area. I couldn’t be prouder. When I started working there it was an “old boys’ club.” Over the years the management changed out and employee-friendly programs were put in place. It wasn’t always easy. Change isn’t but it is worth it. Congrats to all who work there.
So how was your week?
