Loose Ends

Stuff I forgot: I locked my keys in the Focus when I got home to pick up the building plans. Luckily, I had a spare key in my old wallet upstairs.

I did finally remember to get a battery for Jonathan's metronome. It works fine now.

I also made a stop at Wal-Mart Sunday evening on the way home from church to get an ink cartridge for the printer and a newspaper. I have no idea why I thought I needed a newspaper--I can't even get through the comics anymore without being assaulted by breathtaking moral cowardice.

The dogwoods are in bloom. There is nothing I enjoy more about spring (botanically speaking, at least) than the ridges and valleys sprinkled with dogwoods.

I still did not get the grass cut, nor the weed killer spread out, which is probably just as well since it rained last night.

Despite all the grousing about having to get ready for the party, I'm still glad that the back porch looks tidy again.

Rebecca got up this morning and said she was sick, but I made her go to school anyway, but then she felt so bad still that after she turned in her class assignment, she called and asked for Grandmom to come pick her up and take her home. Of all of them, she's the one I know isn't faking when she says she's unwell.

Yet another weekend without a trip to the junkyard to explore for old Volvo parts. ::sigh::

I am happy that I no longer have weekends as exciting as yours. I wouldn't be able to handle it. Mowing the lawn is about my max now.

I may buy a goat or two to keep ours clipped down to a manageable level.
