Everything Seems To Be Conspiring Against Me
I must admit to having just slightly enjoyed my crabby mood of late. But I just can't seem to keep it up. It's just been such a great day. It started with my sweet husband making Pumpkin Waffles for breakfast, followed by a half day outing involving the garden section of both Lowe's and Home Depot, planting my two garden plots at the Community Center, dropping off the recycling, Whole Foods for Chicken Italian Sausages for dinner and plus all their Saturday food samples - and picking up a Fennel Bulb and Lentils for a salad later this week, a stop at Queenie's for tomorrow's desert (Strawberry Cheesecake), and finally Chai Tea Lattes from Starbucks where I finished off my Lenten Tipping tradition.
I really wondered if I'd be able to make it this year. Anyone who knows me knows that I would rather make own Tea at home, because I'm quite frugal, but that I give up those Small, Smug Frugalities for Lent, in order to tip someone at least once a day. This is not as easy as it sounds. But once again, I made it. Yeah!
And then, to finish off an already terrific day, it was a free HBO weekend, and so John switched the TV over to the movie, Grease, in progress, just (and I mean to the second) in time for Frankie Avalon's appearance as an angel singing Beauty School Dropout to a pink haired Didi Conn. Which is our favorite movie song scene of all time. Good Times!
