My Onion Pi

If you can figure out the name, you'll know what it's about. Fortunately, I'm literate. I'm also funny on occasion. Just beware of the flying PMS.

I think that I shall never see a poem as lovely as a tree

Well I was up until 4 am but I managed to write both my final paper and a powerpoint presentation for Ditzy Dora's class. I even dragged my tired butt to the gym this morning....although I was sure yawning a lot during my workout.

On the way home it started to rain, so I rolled down the window of "the old girl" just to smell that great smell of ozone or whatever it is that makes that after the rain smell. I just love it.

With those two big projects off my back I can finally feel myself relaxing a little. Well, at least I don't feel like I'm drowning quite as much as I did last week.

So an odd thing happened in Horrible Hettie's class this week. She asked me if I had applied to the Master's program yet, which I haven't. I felt like saying, "I'm holding on to my ass with both hands ya mind if I take care of this semester first???" But I didn't....I just said I hadn't applied yet. So she said to me, "Well, I'll be happy to write you a letter of recommendation." Ya coulda knocked me over with a feather.....will wonders never cease?!?

The semester is rolling to a close. I did get the otoscope and the opthalmascope in the mail from the EBay guy, and everything was A-OK. He even threw in the set of tuning forks and the reflex hammer. So, I'll be practicing on the Little Hams to warm up for my Lab Practicum.

Since I was so productive last night/this morning I'm letting myself just chill out a little. Maybe it's the rain, but I love this weather. I love seeing the grass turning bright green and hearing the little birds chirping. Spring is just an awesome season. This is where I see God all around me. The church of the great outdoors. Just the simplest things are so incredible - the crocuses and the daffodils that the former owner planted are springing up in the lawn and on the side of the house. So I'm benefitting from her green thumb.

I think the next project will be to get that blog roll thing going so I don't have to keep counting on piggybacking off NukieBubba and Kimmys blog lists. Oh....I'm just not a left brain thinker!!! I'm tired just thinking about it. But I miss ya'll. It's funny how that happens. Relationships pop up in the oddest places and in the strangest ways. I found myself thinking about Kimmy as I was throwing in a load of laundry. Someone I have never met but I know so many things about her and her family. Then I thought I wonder where Jeff was? On vacation, or travelling for work? And then I thought about WDKY and wondered how things were going with his daughter. Just funny little things that pop into your head.

I need to get the kids Easter Candy! I was waiting until the last minute so I wouldn't have to worry about hiding it for more than a day. I don't know if starting that whole Easter Bunny thing was a good idea or not. I'm raising the kids R.C., so I make sure that they understand the real meaning of the holiday, but somehow the Easter Bunny got started....
I remember when we were kids Edith used to hide those little chocolate eggs all over the house. There was a coin under each one depending on what color the foil was. Most eggs were worth a nickel, but the flowered foil eggs were worth .15 cents and the gold foil eggs were worth a quarter. Poor Wakanukie was the littlest one so....well, he didn't usually make out as well as Bubbanukie and I did. I always went for the big front window...there usually was one in each corner so I usually scooped 4 eggs right off the bat. Sometimes Nuke would slip in there and grab the eggs on the other window before I did. Well, all's fair in love and war and Easter egg hunting. I'll be working this week-end so I hope ya'll have a nice Easter if ya celebrate and a nice spring week-end if ya don't celebrate.

Easter Hammy

I think that's rather lovely... thank you Hammy, and the truth is I think about you sometimes, too. And I know just what you mean about that smell... I love it, especially when it's mingled with that cut grass smell too.

Have a really lovely Easter x

I'd have to wait till the last day to get the candy, or else I'd eat it!
