To all who celebrate – May you have wonderful Easter. When I was young there were a lot of traditions surrounding this holiday. It started with Good Friday services, food blessed on Holy Saturday and a new spring outfit with patent leather shoes for Easter Mass. Somehow I always felt holier with new patent shoes. (Ok, I was a materialistic kid!)
A toxic error? – This week a lawn service got addresses mixed up and put a batch of chemicals on our lawn. I have a pond and a garden and am very meticulous about chemicals. What’s the point of eating organic if we are breathing stuff in our own yard? It took a day to get a response with a list of what was spread. #dumbasserror
Sneaks – Men shop differently. Once every two years the beloved husband and I go to the local department store with coupons to buy the same exact sneaker. He wears them all the time (except for funerals when he wears his funeral shoes). He doesn’t look at different colors or designs. For 20 years — the same ones!! Shopping with him is easy and there is a pizza lunch for my efforts.
The ant invasion – After spending their cold winter outside, the local ants have decided that our home is the place for spring break. The cat feeding areas are the choice spots. Good food, hiding places, pond-front view. I hear a mariachi band is scheduled. Can’t get any better than that!
Let’s get physical – It’s been a wonderful week. The garden is dug and ready for stuff. The pond spring start-up has commenced. Frogs and fish are happy. I love working outside. At the end of the day you feel really good. Physical work sweat doesn’t smell so bad either (she says hopefully).
So how was your week?
