Everything is new and green and growing and pulsing with promise...everything but my eyes. They're red and pulsing with The ITCH. Must get to a pharmacy stat and see what kind of relief I can get. I have a feeling Visine-A isn't going to cut it this year.

I got buzzed by a very loud bumblebee today; so loud that I actually looked up, thinking it was an airplane.

Where is my mother? I called and let a message earlier but she hasn't called back yet. I get antsy when too much time goes by between contact.

The kids didn't want to read tonight. One wanted to keep playing WoW, the other one just didn't want to because he "had a bad day". It threw me into an incredibly bad mood—I really wanted to read! Am suddenly remembering why the reading aloud petered out before. *sigh*

Crazy busy at work.

A bit bummed about AWC stuff, again: same old story.

Hey, remember that awesome project I keep mentioning? The one where I wondered if you'd consider pledging just $5 to support a good friend and the arts? She's so close. SO VERY CLOSE. If you haven't pledged, won't you? If you have pledged, would you consider upping it a bit? Just a little bit? For me? She's 16 days away and just over $1000 from her goal. C'mon, be a pal. Next time, it might be YOU putting yourself out there and needing some help with a project.

I watered the new plantings and garden and pots this evening. Then it rained. I need a new super power.
mood: tired
music: grumbly grumps

Omigod, you control the weather?

Mom is in Toronto....

and you have an amazing Super power - you made it rain - imagine if you could pour sunshine out of your magic watering can.... or snow... or volcanic ash.

bought a new bike. gotta get out and exercise more.

It looks like it is going to rain here any moment. We haven't begun the planting yet, but it is too early. It still may get cold and snow. You never know. I am glad you found your mom :) And, I think that the bumble bees are getting bigger. They never used to sound like a fighter plane!

Re: From Megsie

We had rain this morning, but I'm really hoping it clears up now as it's the Walpurgis Eve bonfire tonight!

Ouch. Whatever you do, don't rub the eyes. The itch will just feel worse. Am I right?
So the plants got watered twice. They must have been thirsty. Heehee.

Good luck to your friend.

Drat the kids, they should love the reading every day!!

I'm not ...not...I'm NOT rubbi...ow ow STOP DON'T DO IT! AAAGH!

muahahahaha. I really shouldn't laugh (she says while rubbing away at her itchy eyes and running to the bathroom for a cool cloth.)


This post feels so homey to me, rain and spring and allergies and kids asserting their wills. Things are quiet here in Barcelona, and it's raining (or constantly threatening to). Thank you for the hopeful comment on buddingscholar--it really brightened my mood!

Feeling generous? Be my guest!

I can complain because rose bushes have thorns or rejoice because thorn bushes have roses.
