Holy moly – what a day!
It is April 16th and I had to scrape ice off of my car in order to leave for work this morning. I obviously infuriated Mother Nature when I referenced her intense mood swings last week. So let me step up and offer my apologies to all of you who suffered through this Spring snow and may I also make a personal apology to Mother Nature.
I am truly sorry for upsetting you Mother Nature. Please forgive me. But, may I also point out that you are not helping your cause – snow in April really does seem a bit moody. Just sayin’.
A million things and a million thoughts have happened since the chilly start of my day. I ate crispy pickle chips for the first time and may I just say yum! I highly recommend them, but I will warn you: they are addicting. If you’re planning on eating them, you should probably build a brisk half hour walk into your day – you’ll need it. Of course, you could simply do what I did and just marinate in their yumminess and skip the guilt.
After the crispy pickle chips, I had a strange conversation about fake geraniums and their ability to beautify a home. Really? I’m not sure I’m buying it, but who am I to judge. I’m not known for my green thumb – I tend to kill off most green things. I just haven’t quite gotten on-board with the fake stuff yet. For now, I’m holding strong and hoping that something will sprout that won’t give the neighborhood bunnies that plastic aftertaste.
Finally, as I sit here writing this, I find myself thinking about Scott Baio. Don’t ask. That’s just the kind of day it’s been. An oddly happy day.
