Hi there. It is still sprinter here. We expect spring to arrive to stay about 2 days before summer hits. We get summer here in April/May when the temps go to the 90’s for a few days before settling back into the approximately correct and/or normal temps (whatever the hell those may be). The blossoms still look ok. Thankfully. I would be a tad upset if the flowers were trashed.
I found the last skein/ball of PurplePi yarn.
I wish I’d found it in the flowering almond bush, but in reality I had it carefully stowed in a mega-baggy in the basement. Now, I can boogey on with PurplePi. I will need to watch the yarn useage now so that I don’t run out before finishing.
It’s already Wednesday. I cannot believe how strange it is to work only four days a week. I’m not really unhappy about it either. The money loss will hurt for sure, but the time picked up will be (and has been) wonderful. I just don’t know how long it will last. Either the job or the 4-day weeks. “What a long, strange trip it’s been.”
Grover has responded to my training. I think I’m going to have to clarify something here. Apparently, dominance is a bad word these days in the dog training world. I have no idea why. The dominant member of the pack rules. I am not into animal cruelty or wrestling the dog down to prove dominance (of course, the idea of that makes me laugh until I wet my pants), but I believe that the one that controls the food is the dominant one. I suppose there are those that would hurt their dog to prove dominance, but really? I don’t think they are in the majority. Most people get a dog. Train it not to make a mess in the house. Love it. Feed it. Enjoy the company. Why must we think the worst? Maybe, it’s a societal problem. We’re in a societal funk and everything and everybody is suspect. WRONG! I am not Suzy Sunshine, but I do think we can worry ourselves into a self-fulfilling prophecy situation. Oh, crap. I’m ranting. I can get emotional and passionate about anything, so I guess I’d best back off.
And, to entertain you on this Wednesday in April, I foreshadowed the song in an earlier reference in the post. Quick, can you guess what it is??????
I give you the Grateful Dead and “Truckin”. Have a great one!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
