Day: April 10, 2017
I ran a couple errands after work this afternoon and then the rain came down. Cold rain. The kind that hits the back of your neck, travels down your spine and immediately gets your attention. Actually it makes you butt pucker but I don’t know if I can say something like that around here. You never really know when little kids, old ladies and priests may be around. Let’s just leave you with the notion that it gets your attention.
I actually turned the furnace back on around supper time. It’s gonna be a cool one out there in the morning which means I’ll have to dig my scarf and my gloves back out once again. Good thing I have a short work day tomorrow. I suppose the cool weather is a small price to pay with all things considered.
It’s nice inside now that the house has all warmed up. Maybe a cup of tea would be a good way to top off the evening.
Too bad I’m going to get some of Miss Anna’s icky bad Spring white stuff tonight. Such is April here in central Minnesota. Fortunately the weather will quickly warm again so whatever we get won’t last for long. In the mean while, we’ll continue to grow these indoors until they’re a little bigger. We’ll transplant them later on.
So here we have started Holy Week with Palm Sunday yesterday. I have Good Friday and next Monday off which has rattled some of my co-workers. I love how they scowl and say something along the lines of “You’re not even a Chreaster.” If you must know, a “Chreaster” is a Catholic that only goes to church who only goes to mass on Christmas and Easter. And while it’s true that I am non=practicing, there are certain things that I still hold as being something of value. But don’t ask me to go into a church. God only knows the roof would fall in from the shear shock of me actually being there for a mass and I don’t want that on my conscience. I did get a chuckle by seeing some palms yesterday. It reminded of what my brothers and I used to do with them when we were kids.
It’s a grey and cool morning today for central Minnesota. The cool breeze feels great but I don’t have to shut the window every now and then when my office gets too cool. The cool air is great at keeping my MacBook cool tho.
I’m very unmotivated with getting these PowerPoint slides together to present some training tomorrow. Death by PowerPoint! That’s kinda aptly put.
I got out my front door screen yesterday only to be confronted by the tear in the screen that I found last Fall. Oh yeh. I was gonna get it fixed over the winter when it was cold out and I had plenty of time to get it done before I actually needed it. Oops! Oh well. That’s an unscheduled trip today up to Ace Hardware.
Doggone is my back tight and sore after working with my garden this past weekend. Thank God for Aleve.
Back to focusing on these stupid slides. Feel free to comment and or wave a hearty “Howdy Doo!‘ when you pass through.
