T’was The Monday Before Easter…

I’ve been MIA from blog land for a few days…again.  I continue to find it more difficult to blog lately.  It seems like there’s always something else to do, or I don’t feel like writing.

I don’t know about your neck of the woods, but it was a chilly weekend where we live!  After several days of  wearing shorts, we had to drag our coats out again 😦  We also had to drag out buckets to cover our squash plants out in the garden.  We woke up to a light dusting of frost on Sunday morning!  Other than being cold, the weekend was sunny and nice.  Both afternoons warmed up enough to require only a long-sleeved shirt.

Ed and I got a nice surprise, on Friday afternoon, when our son, Brad, came by for a surprise visit!  He was working nearby, got off early, and decided to pay us a visit before heading home.  (His wife, Jennifer, was working late.) What a great way to kick off the weekend, and I needed the distraction because I wasn’t feeling my best that day!

I seem to be having more and more days when I’m not feeling my best.  My lowering levels of hormones have caused my rheumatoid arthritis to become active again.  I’m experiencing more fatigue and joint pain/stiffness. I’m moving like a little old lady, these days, especially after sitting for a while! The lower hormone levels are causing me to have mood swings, as well.  At the moment, my moods seem to alternate between mad and sad, with very little glad in between.  (Poor Ed!)  This is not a good way to be!  I’m hoping and praying this will soon pass.

Ed continues to stay as ‘busy as a little beaver’ doing things around the house.  It’s nice to have him around to fix things.  I always have a ‘honey do’ list for him!  He doesn’t like to stay inside, but he’ll tackle any outside projects with a smile.  Today’s project is getting our tomato and pepper plants set out in the garden–before the rain that’s expected this afternoon!  I should mention, we’re throwing caution to the wind by going against the advice of the Farmer’s Almanac and planting today.  We’ll see how it goes.

This is shaping up to be a busy week, leading up to Easter.  There’s a lot to be done between now and then, so I’d better get busy.  Have a great Monday!

  1. Cast the Farmer’s Almanac to the wind! Plant your tomatoes and peppers. I am so far behind, just having started tomato, pepper, and cucumber seeds two weeks ago. I’ll probably be buying tomato and pepper plants again this year since I don’t think it’s warm enough in the basement for the seeds to germinate. Also it’s been cloudy so they’re not getting the sun through the windows like other years. Oh well that’s life in the Northeast!
    Hope you’re feeling better!

  2. I’m sorry to hear that you’ve not been feeling your best. I sure hope you get to feeling back to normal soon.

  3. Oh, those hormone swings and sad/mad moods. Joe just barely made it through with me. Bless him and your Ed (and all men living with females experiencing the hormone swings). It’s not fun at all. Nice that you had a visit from Brad, and nice to be getting the garden planted. I think our cooler temps are done, now. We are back up in the low 80s this week, with 60s at night. Keep us posted!
