Tuesday. . . Grrr!

My old chair and a bunch of poppiesThis is a photo of the poppies in my front yard from last summer.

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.

    I talked to Ethan and he feels really bad about your cold. And he really hopes that Gramma gets better and is very much looking forward to spending time with you on the 6th :-). If not sooner.

      Tell him Gramma loves him lots and lots and that he is totally forgiven. Perhaps we’ll see him on the weekend. XX00XX

    Yeah – look at us getting all excited about Hockey. People who often don’t even know a game is on are chatting up a storm about it. Feel bad for the Habs, but…

    Happy bulbing, Kathy.

      Thanks Amy . I envy you living in such a temperate part of Canada — happy day to you and here’s hoping the Canucks pull off a win tonight.

    I do hope you’re feeling better now?

      Thanks, Cindy. A little — having to work, and then go to meetings after work has probably made it drag on longer than it should have, but hopefully by the weekend I’ll be close to ‘normal’ — whatever that is. LOL

    Hope you’re feeling better by now and that spring is coming your way in full force. Don’t want to rub it in, but it’s in the 90’s here in Palm Desert (California) but we’re heading back home to cold, as are many of your compatriots.

      You’re not rubbing it in, but I am envious. It started raining here this afternoon, so, if it doesn’t turn to snow like it’s been forecasted to do, hopefully, the snow will be all gone and things will start really growing. Have a safe trip back.
