Just Ask Ida Blog Archive April, 2012
Well, finally! We got some April showers last week. Even though our May flowers been up two or three weeks now, it was a good thing. The ground needed a soakin. Plus, the rain forced me to stay inside and tend to some long overdue spring cleaning.
I don’t know about you, but the hardest thing I find about spring cleaning is that it’s spring. The sun’s shining, daffodils and tulips are up, birds are singing. I want to be out doors, puttering around in the yard.
Now, the last time I addressed this subject was my blog back in November 2010. (I know, ‘cause I checked.) But some things never change, and my husband’s one of ‘em.
Last week, I’m drivin’ back from Bangor, where I’d spent a lovely afternoon getting a root canal. I know! Just the thought of it sends chills down your spine. But, it really wasn’t all that bad. I went to a place where all they do is root canals. I mean, they crank ‘em out, ‘bout a gazillion a day. They got it down.
Did you give up something for Lent? That used to be a big deal, didn’t it? I don’t think people do it so much, now. Oh, I’d like to say I gave up candy, ice cream, bacon and booze for Lent, but I give those up for Weight Watchers, so it’d be cheating.
The temperature may have cooled off last week, but boy, the crocuses, daffodils and forsythia sure are keeping the faith, aren’t they? Those flashes of purple and yellow make me happy, no end. Spring is here, and the magazines are letting us in on all the hottest fashion trends. As usual, some are confusing, some are just plain foolish, and some, I’m happy to report, us regular folk can actually wear!
