I am sick. This cold Ethan gave me is a doozy. I feel entirely like crap. I wish I could stay home from work and plod around in my pj’s all day, but, alas, I cannot. Damn responsibilities!
The Grrr above is because Montreal lost in overtime tonight. Not that I’ve ever been a big Habs fan, but I really wanted two Canadian teams in the playoffs this year. So, all our hopes are hanging on Vancouver. My God it would be sweet to see them take the trophy!
It’s funny, I haven’t been this excited or involved in hockey for a long time. But watching the Vancouver/Chicago series and a couple games of the Montreal/Boston series has got me all geared up. It’s just pure, nail-biting, let out a scream now and then, fun. Go Canucks!
Unbelievably, it seems, we are near the end of April. Come next Monday there will only be two months left of my work year. Summer is just around the corner. Although. . .
. . . there is still snow in my front yard. Hopefully, not for long, though. We got a small rain shower tonight, and if the gods are good there is more rain in the forecast. That should make short work of any remaining ‘white stuff’. Then I can get out and start cleaning things up. That is, when I am over this damn cold!
Checked my rose-bush yesterday — it has lots of colour in the wood and I could see the starts of buds. That made me smile. Also, my rhubarb is starting to emerge, and I can see poppies leafing out. So, within a month I should have a few bright and cheerful yellow poppies nodding in the garden. And right behind them should be the anemones. Maybe I’ll go buy some spring bulbs and get them in the ground — grape hyacinth, glads — stuff like that.
Well, I have work I need to get to, and I want to be in bed by 10:30 tonight so I better get a move on.
