|Nature Is Loud
There is at least one adult male cricket outside the window where I'm sitting, showing off his chirping abilities. He's probably looking for a mate. I do not approve of insect hookups happening in my yard. Unfortunately he's in an area I don't like to use bug spray in, since the tortoise and cats hang out there. This means I have to listen to this six-legged Romeo until he decides to shut up, or he gets hungry and snacks on some of the poison bait I put out. The bait isn't where other critters can get to it but bugs could if so inclined. It's corn masa, molasses, borax and water made into a dough. Super helpful for pest control. If only that one cricket would get hungry soon... Current Mood: annoyed

Yesterday I got ranch dressing in the coffee pot while making a sandwich. Today I made a sandwich without causing any problems for the small appliances. Progress! Current Mood: amused

|What Have I Overlooked?
Today was pretty decent. I got some yardwork done despite it being about 91 degrees out, Will Power won the Indy 500, the cats didn't get stepped on despite multiple attempts at diving under my feet.
It's too nice. What unforeseen BS is going to happen? Current Mood: suspicious

I watered the garden this afternoon which means it will probably rain tonight. As I watered I noticed that all the weeds were perking up and looking healthy but the plants I actually put there were just like Meh, whatever.
So not fair. Current Mood: tired

|I Am Tired... I Think
Today I mowed the grass and pulled weeds and reminded myself why I don't like the weed eater and helped my youngest spawn fix That One Part Of The Fence and poured boiling water on ant hills and made food and washed dishes and kicked over the cats' water and tracked it all over the kitchen before cleaning it up.
I feel far too okay right now. When am I going to crash? When? Current Mood: accomplished

|Warm Weather Woes
I have a bit of sunburn on my eyelids. This is not a good thing. Current Mood: tired

Patrick - Look out!
Me - For what?
Patrick - Time! It's hitting you like a Mack truck!
Me - ... Current Mood: amused

It's Earth Day I guess. I planted two small lilac bushes, picked up a fast food container out of the yard and took some tomato and pepper seedlings outside to harden off. I did those things because ...I just do that stuff. I was too lazy to turn the compost pile. Maybe on Arbor Day? It's sort of under trees... Current Mood: tired

|Isn't Nature Wonderful
There is a fly in here. A big one. I would put it outside but I feel like I would have to inform local air traffic control first. Current Mood: lazy

Today it snowed, Harry Anderson died, and there's a toilet on the sidewalk a few houses down from mine. Current Mood: tired

|Easter And Snow
Yesterday was Easter! There was candy! Yay!
It snowed and now the cats are looking at it like they've never seen this sort of thing before. Current Mood: amused

So, today we got six inches of snow AND the power went out for several hours. Woo, spring. :/ Current Mood: confused
|Friday, March 23rd, 2018|
It's been Spring for a day or two now and we've had snow twice, plus the cats have been timing their smelliest trips to the litter pans for the time of day when it's still too cold to open windows.
Purple deadnettle is already growing too well in the yard in my opinion.
Birds are loud.
Daylilies keep respawning in odd places. I forsee much transplanting in my future. Current Mood: awake

|It's March Already
It's been March for 8 days now. Most of that time the weather was okay.
Last night it snowed and I have a sinus headache. Those are likely unrelated but I'm going to lump them together anyway. Current Mood: cranky

|The Good And The Bad Of Today
Perfected my buttercream frosting recipe.
Realized that putting buttercream frosting on pancakes is not the best way to make my magically shrinking clothes fit again. Current Mood: full

|Not Dead Just Lazy Post #milliontytwelve
Did I sleep through January? Is this really my first post of 2018? Holy crap!
Video games and laziness, kids. That's my secret to being completely useless. Current Mood: lethargic

|Fun With Beverages
I just had some pomegranate sparkling water. It was like plain seltzer that smelled like shampoo. I burped and expected to see soap bubbles float by.
The more you know, I guess. Current Mood: ditzy
