Sometimes I write a blog entry & then I have blogger's remorse & wonder if I should delete the occasional post by my alter ego, Susie Crankypants (as she can be a tad snarky & negative), but I am too compulsive. Still, I would like communicate via sea monkey on every other Thursday, at least. I write in this electronic space because it helps to get me started, to play around with words a bit before I play around with them For Reals. My monthly horoscope warned me against posting too much personal stuff on facebook & twitter as I might offend some random human. It didn't say anything about my blog. Heh.
Yesterday was Easter or Whatever Spring Holiday You Celebrate & it was mostly quiet over here, just a handful of us eating & talking. I made the usual roast beast, a fingerling potato salad vinaigrette, a veggie casserole, a chickory & strawberry salad, some rolls, red velvet cupcakes with cream cheese icing. I have leftovers. I am not having them for breakfast, although M took a cupcake with him this morning. I would have loved a big pan of homemade macaroni & cheese like Rachel was having, but I am the only person who appreciates such things & I cannot consume a whole pan of that by myself, no matter how delicious it is with the panko crumb topping & oh man I shoulda just made it anyway.
My husband's grandmother brought us a bouquet of Easter Lilies & the whole house smells very floral.
I slept with the window open again so I could smell the rain. I am thinking about all things olfactory this morning. This weekend, the house smelled like rain & lilies & chocolate-y cupcakes.
I like to listen to the rain too. It's soothing.
I am throwing caution to the wind & having a cup of coffee this morning. This may or may not be a horrible decision. I don't care, but I might care later.
Measuring Up and Marching Towards Spring
