Happy St. Patrick’s Day and St. Gertrude’s Day (patron saint of cats) to all who celebrate. The beloved husband isn’t fond of the corned beef and cabbage thing so we will celebrate with steak or chicken. Definitely no green beer either. Maybe tuna for the cats. People seem to make all holidays about food! Do you do something special for this sort of holiday?
Hospital bananas – Both my brother and his wife are now home recovering from their accident a month ago. My SIL came home from the rehab place this week. While she was there she kept giving my brother (what I would call) rotten bananas to take home. All black splotchy. Not good for anything but banana bread and no one is well enough to bake. They were still there when we brought her home. In our house, blackish bananas (even just a little blackish) go in the trash. Or in banana bread pronto. They are not allowed to wither and smell up my kitchen.
Promotional advertising – This week somewhere I read this headline “8 Pillowcases that will transform your hair.” I know a pillowcase can’t transform your hair, even one that costs a lot of money. I bet some people fall for that.
Blurry pictures – I always complain about blurry pictures. I upgraded my camera thinking my old one was wonky. This week I took some pictures with my cell phone and I got the same old blur. The only thing constant is me. I must have a case of shaky fingers. Or maybe it’s the earth’s rotation wobbling.
Weather does make a difference – We had our first real touch of warm weather this past week. We danced very close to 75 degrees. Windows flung open. Cats got antsy. Humans got weird (or weirder). I was expecting to hear (but didn’t) a frog serenade (but I saw them tuning up). It felt like everything changed. And for the better. Yes, weather does make a difference.
So how was your week?
