Spring, Yoo Hoo, where are you???


Well I have looked and looked and Spring is sure hiding. I found snow Wednesday night and Thursday morning. Friday was pretty nice, then sun on Saturday with lots of wind. I can't sleep so here I are bugging you all, the wind is still howling outside and Soul Train is on TV. What were we thinking?? I look at some of the outfits and know I had one's very similar,lol, and I thought I looked so hot. Sad, very sad.

There are faint hints of green in the yard and what I thought might be some brave plants sticking their noses out turned out to be dandelions. Nothing kills those guys. Jim can't make it home this weekend, pulling double duty but he will be here for 3 days next week, cool. He will need to mess with my little car as her fuel pumps pooped out today. I had to wait for a couple of hours for AAA to show up, but I had some magazines and was fine. The best part of the experience was all the kind people who stopped to see if I needed help. One man let me use his cell phone to call AAA, I of course had run out of the house without mine. I had to go to the restaurant to meet the refrigeration people, the walk in cooler needed a shot of freon. Since we had a Monday appointment this trip was not planned. Turns out the guy had a class that day but was able to fit me in yesterday. Since I have a big do Monday night having the walk in work is a plus. Funny how things go, I did get some recipe ideas while I was waiting, the man who let me use his cell phone was telling me how his Mom makes a great pork loin with apricots. Sounds nummy and this is what I want, local ideas using local products. I do get into some unusual conversations, but they are so great. I enjoy finding out what other people think and like.
Oh, my gosh, one girl has on hot pants and a tube top,lol. Those were not great fashion statements, and yes I did wear them. Wonder if women in times past looked back and realized how strange those huge wigs they wore looked?? Some periods in time had more fashion sense then others, but we never quite realize it at that particular moment, such a shame.
Well my friends, back to bed for a few more zzzzs I hope.
Best to you all, Barbara

Hi Barbara,

Oh my, more snow? Well, hopefully, not a lot. Spring should meander over your way, soon! We have had a beautiful week, but now, rain is in the forecast for the next several days. We have had our fill of rain!

Sorry to hear you had fuel pump problems. People in the country are always so friendly and want to help, don't they? And the pork roast with apricots does sound yummy!

I hope you have a lovely Sunday, Barbara, and a good Monday, and Spring makes an appearance in your neck of the woods soon.

Hugs,

Renie

I was shopping with my daughter this week and guess what -- tube tops are back. Yikes. Not the really tight, fitted ones, thank goodness, but looser with a band of ribbing at the top and bottom.

We woke up to snow this morning also -- just a couple inches and it's mostly melted away. I guess "spring break" is officially over for us, but does that mean the spring weather is going away too?

My son and daughter-in-law grew up in the time period of the late 80s and early 90s. The era of "BIG HAIR" for girls. His 13 year old daughter was looking through the year books a week or so ago and really got a charge out of the "BIG HAIR" Tease it and spray it and tease and spray some more.....lol

Hang in there kiddo...spring is coming for us all, I over heard the robins planning a take over the other day.
