‘Maters – After last year’s disaster in finding the exact tomato plants I wanted, I am starting my own. Seeds are on tall displays with the prettiest flowers at eye level. The tomato seeds are always on the bottom row. Very bottom. Almost in the basement. The word “tomato” is prominent but the variety is in a light-colored small font which requires that I crawl around the floor like a toddler looking for her pacifier. It took three stores to find one of the varieties and I still have two more to find. On-line ordering for these varieties, incur a shipping charge that is much more than the cost of the seeds. They come in an envelope! Whattup with that?
Something good…maybe – I had to get my glasses adjusted. Glasses are outrageous. The last frames I bought were $200 (that’s just the frames). They are frameless. That means it’s a nose piece and side bars. That’s nuts. (Ok the side bars are red but they are plastic!) I noticed that the glass place now carries frames for $49. Nice ones. It wasn’t crowded. Several glass warehouse stores have opened in the area and the prices may be going down. The pair I have was half price (which was still $250) with a coupon. With my weird eyes, it has all the bells and whistles – progressives, transitions, lighter weight lens.
So ready! – Some of you live in warmer climates. I don’t. This winter (so far) has been wonderful. One snow and no single digits. This weekend is promising to be a preview of spring. Woo hoo!
Gracie – If you saw my sad story on Friday (click here for details), you know that I had a very sick cat this past week. Gracie has not only rebounded but is working hard to be extra annoying to make up for it. Nothing is safe. I saw her trying to hide my cell phone yesterday.
Procrastination – I hate doing taxes. I’d rather clean up the litter box of a herd of elephants. This week I got another reprieve. One of the tax forms I received has an error. I’ll get a new one by the end of the month. Party on!
So how was your week?
