Quick Takes (5)

It’s warm.  And it’s sunny.  In northeast Ohio that is news.  April was seriously depressing with a record amount of rainfall.  Blue skies and blooming lilacs do wonders for my mood.

Starting at 4:30pm EST I’m on vacation.  I’m on vacation!   I’m on vacation!   I’m on vacation!   Do you think I’m a little bit excited?  I’m not going anywhere, except perhaps something local.  Mostly I’ll be doing yardwork, reading, and spending time with my honey.

I got to go to the Indians game the other night with DH and my cousin’s son.  It was a lot of fun, once they started playing.  The ninety-five minute rain delay for “impending bad weather”  put a damper, so to speak, on things for a while.  And it barely rained.  Uggh!  It was a great game with the lead changing several times.  But in the end, the good guys won.  Go Tribe!

 Well, I started writing this the other day when it was warm and sunny.  That changed quickly yesterday afternoon.  Let's just say we knew it was going to be bad when we saw the radar - lots of yellow, red, and purple coming right at us.  The rain and hail lasted quite a while and when it was done our stream turned into a lake.

Did I tell you I’m on vacation???  ;-)

The gratuitous cute puppy picture. . .

“Do not enjoy yourself. Enjoy dances and theaters and joy-rides and champagne and oysters; enjoy jazz and cocktails and night-clubs if you can enjoy nothing better; enjoy bigamy and burglary and any crime in the calendar, in preference to the other alternative; but never learn to enjoy yourself.”
The Common Man by GK Chesterton
