The dream of summer – My tomato seedlings are doing well under a grow light. Hopefully a month or so they will be in the garden and in July they will yield ripe tomatoes. Fresh garden tomatoes with a little salt, balsamic vinegar and basil are what I dream about all year round.
Don’t make me go there again! – In my quest for cat food that would be acceptable to my ghetto cat, I made a trip to Walmart. Some of you may love the place. It has a lot of stuff at a good price. That’s all well and good but it’s a huge store….like really HUGE! I walked in and asked the greeter where the cat food was. He directed me to the diagonally opposite end of the store. It was a 37 mile walk. Really. Just when I get there (and don’t see any cat food), I accosted another worker. He directed me back to where I came from. (Yep, another 37 miles. I wonder if they would replace the shoes I wore out?). Just prior to getting to the cat food section, I asked another employee just to be sure That’s when I saw the sign on the wall that said PET FOOD. It was large enough but you couldn’t see if from the center of the store. Actually, you couldn’t see it until you were on top of it. I love stores with directories! The worst part was that Gracie did not like anything I bought there. Maybe that’s the good news.
One last comment on shopping – As I was looking for a new spring outfit, I found a manufacturer called “Free the People.” I was intrigued. Free them from what? I googled. It’s eclectic or as I would say – a throwback to the 70s. Unfortunately, the clothes were designed for young (as in very young) women. Short, short, and just a tad skimpy. I would have worn it in the 70s but not at age 70.
Celebrate good times, come on! – Yesterday there was a wedding in my family. There are so few. Most relatives of marrying age have done so. The rest probably won’t. There’s a lull until the next generation comes up way down the road. This was a rare opportunity to get all gussied up. I plucked my chin hairs and painted my toes. A good time was had by all. Woo hoo!
Gone – Remember last week’s picture of the flower tent with a huge snow pile in front of it? Gone! Warmer weather together with heavy rains got rid of that baby in a few days. No flowers stocked there yet so no picture update but my cats appreciated the one nice day we had.
So how was your week?
