My body is struggling to deal with the time change today. The clock says it’s 8 o’clock, but my brain’s telling me it’s only seven… While I sit here and try to reconcile my body with the clock, let’s join Heather’s Monday Meme, shall we? Here are today’s questions:
1. When would you consider planting flowers or vegetables at your residence?
We usually begin planting most things on or around “Good Friday”. Hopefully, the ground will be dry enough by then! Normally, we would have already planted some potatoes on or around Valentine’s Day, but it wasn’t possible due to torrential rainfall during the month of February. In the meantime, I have lots of plants growing in the greenhouse!
2. What is more egregious; cheating on one’s spouse or spending the family into being bankrupt?
Cheating on one’s spouse.
3. In honor of Pi Day this week, what is your favorite kind of pie?
It’s hard to choose, since I love almost any kind of pie, but I’m going to say pecan pie. It’s sinfully sweet, and definitely not an acceptable part of my diet anymore–but I still love it!
4. Would would you give Wayne @ Touristic for his birthday today?
Heather, if you’ll cook the man his favorite dinner, and follow it with an evening of TLC, it should provide a memorable and enjoyable birthday experience for Wayne 🙂 As for what I would give him, I have no idea.
My question for you:
5. What was the most memorable surprise you’ve ever received?
It was a very good weekend around our house. The weather was beautiful on Friday and Saturday, so I took full advantage of it by spending many hours outside. Ed and I continued to work on putting the fish pond back together. ( Actually, Ed worked, I watched most of the time.) He was doing the tedious work of replacing the retaining wall.
We’ve found the new type of liner has been much more difficult to work with than the old one! It’s thicker, therefore, it’s been harder to get the folds and wrinkles (at the top) to lie flat. Getting the wrinkles to lie relatively flat is important when constructing a wall on top of them! Hopefully, we’ll be finished with this project by next weekend, and all of the work and worry will soon be a fading memory.
Ed and I also spent some great family time with our adult off-spring and their families. There was food, fun, laughter, and even a couple of surprises. Actually, one of the surprises was a BIG ONE, but it deserves a post of its own, so you’ll have to come stop back by tomorrow to find out what it is!
Until then, have a great Monday!
