That was nice! – A friend called earlier this week. She left a message with her phone number. Instead of looking it up in my book, I wrote it down and called. I got a generic message on an answering machine so I left an upbeat note with my phone number. A day later I got a nice call from a woman telling me I had called the wrong number. That triggered me to look up her number in my book and I had a wrong digit. (We’ll blame that on my hearing and not on anything else!) That was so nice of the stranger. I don’t think I’ve ever done that with a wrong number message.
Peace and quiet – Remember my garden? See photo. It’s all gone without a trace. This week a landscaper came in with a bobcat backhoe. They regraded and planted grass seed. Goodbye sweet garden. I’ve transitioned.
DNA update – I periodically receive updates from my DNA test company. As they gather more samples they are able to get more specific. This week they let me know that I have 2% Neanderthal in my genes which is about 56% more than most people.
The rest of the story – They also listed some traits I’m likely to have as a result – itchy mosquito bites, difficulty in discarding objects, don’t get hangry (angry when hungry) and a terrible sense of direction. I do get grumpy when I’m hungry and I have difficulty discarding something that can be useful to someone but the rest are on target. As far as direction goes, I learned early in life that if I think I should go left, right is the right way. Funny how we learn to adapt.
Trick or treat – Will they or won’t they? Probably not but we haven’t seen any official notice yet. Update: There will be trick or treating in my area. What to do? Stock up on candy when no one will come? Turn off the lights?
So how was your week?
