Spring is flying by down here in the once again windy state of Texas. Mother Nature is emptying her powerful lungs across our metropolitan area. (I wish she'd been a smoker...) Tree branches are falling causing power outages and my recently bloomed roses are raining their petals all over the
weeds freshly manicured lawn.
Sheesh. ENOUGH ALREADY!
In other news, Mom has no damage to her eye from her fall. Yippee! She is ready to consider her shoulder surgery. Evil Twin and I have been practicing for the big day:
Now we're good.
A friend of mine took me on one of her favorite running courses. She's lucky I still call her "friend". This course is all steep hills (Yes, we have hills in Texas) and I was sure I would need climbing gear to make it up the last hill. I kept hoping the ice cream truck would show up and distract my friend or maybe I could ride in the back while she finished the course.
No such luck. We only encountered a city employee knee deep in someone's muddy yard and a redneck with his barking dog in his pickup. Twice. We jumped out of our skin when the beast spoke to us. Twice. We didn't learn.
Hubby installed baseboards in our upstairs hallway last weekend so the least I could do this week was get them painted. I spackled and painted and painted and painted, working up quite a thirst. I asked Cat for a tall glass of cold tea but he brought me a pile of dirt and some dead bugs.
Speaking of Cat, he is currently stalking a silly cardinal that built her nest in a shrub about four feet off the ground. I don't think the pathetic creature gets any rest. The bird; not the cat.
Now, where is that cat? I need a pillow.
