Blah, blah, blah...Waa, waa, waa...


It’s Monday…and it feels like it…

Wait a minute! It isn’t Monday…It’s Tuesday! The Holiday has thrown me off schedule. I should have written it on my fridge white board: “Today is Tuesday!” but now it’s already almost 3pm, so it is too late anyway.

I probably better write: “Today is Wednesday” on it tomorrow. I actually have some appointments to keep on Wednesday…It would be bad to be thinking it’s Tuesday and get a call from my boy saying, “Why aren’t you here to bring us to the airport??”

They get to go on vacation for a week…God bless ‘em; they need it!

Anyway, this Pseudo-Monday feels like the real thing. I’ve been wondering for the past couple of days whether I have a wimpy cold, or severe allergies. Today I have chills, and an unhappy stomach, so I’m thinking virus, not allergies. Time to switch drug regimens…bag the antihistamines!

And I confess that I’m getting a bit blue with the weather…

I knew I shouldn’t have said we were having a normal spring because it turned rainy after that, and has pretty much stayed that way. My poor little container plants are turning purple from the wet and the cold. I finally broke down and brought all the pots undercover so that they could dry out.

If that doesn’t bring out the sun, I don’t know what will.

On the upside, it’s been easy to keep up with the watering. I need to remember this in August.

I hope you all had a good Memorial Day weekend. My mom and I were reflecting on Memorial Days past…how that was the weekend they would open the pool, and we’d have a barbecue after attending the memorial service at the cemetery.  For the last few years, the weather has been cold and rainy and not pool weather at all – which is probably easier for my folks because the pool was retired a few years ago. But anyway, Memorial Day Weekends have been kind of depressing.

We stay home so we can get some farming done, but then the weather stays bad, so we sit in the house, feeling like we should be doing something, but can’t work or play because of the weather.

Waa, waa, waa…what a whiner…

I think I have a problem with expectations. A lot of other weekends are rainy and cool, and if I was depressed every time it was that way, I wouldn’t spend a lot of time being happy here in the PNW… But now, I’m thinking about summer, and outdoor activities, and nothing less will do. Even my old reliable, food, didn’t provide the kind of fun that will usually suffice…the sore throat and stuffed up nose probably had something to do with that.

If I want the rest of this week to be profitable, I better work on an attitude adjustment -- and a nap wouldn’t hurt either.

Realizing that it isn’t really Monday would be a step in the right direction too. By the time I get the day right, this week will almost be over!

And by then, the sun may be shining.

MAY be…

Poor dear. I feel your pain. I heard that hoof and mouth disease is making the rounds and somehow that makes me chuckle. Leslie with hoof and mouth disease. Hmmm... I'm sure you know where I'm going with that :)
