Humpity Day: No foolin’…

Has Humpity Day rolled around again?

Tell me it ain’t so.



At least it’s the last Humpity Day of March.

And it’s my baby brother’s birthday.

Happy Birthday Baby Bro!

And Manatee Appreciation Day.

And Bake A Boule Day.

Oops! That might be just at our house.

This Friday, April 1st, some of my fave blogging buds will be starting

A to Z

I will be cheering them on. My pom-poms will be flying.

I was supposed to be starting

A to Z

Instead, Ill be…

…starting My April Project.

Ain’t nobody be goin’ nowhere!

Not that green. That green that makes me think of spring.

Though green will be involved.

And yellow.

And blue.

And white.

Mr. Blandings Builds His Dream House.

That was a hilarious 1948 film starring Cary Grant, Myrna Loy, and Melvyn Douglas.

I love the old movies.

Mrs. Blandings Paints Her Dream House.

This is reality blogging.

Paint will be involved.

There will be brushes and rollers.

Knee pads and ladders.

Drop cloths and paint drops.

Mostly on me.

It’s gonna get messy.

Here be Hump Day.




Single Shot Monday: In a pique over here… +


It just needs a clutch of tulips!


Spring officially arrived on Sunday. Can I get an amen?

I walked by the spring wreath hanging on my office over the garage door and thought about throwing that sucker on the front door. Officially spring, right?


Pretty dang cold. So I thought let’s just leave it for a few.

And then…

This morning’s weather report sitting in the middle of the Big Dell screen when I opened for business was calling for 1-3 inches of snow on Wednesday and 8-12 inches on Thursday.

Say what?

I think I am offended by that notion.

I know my croci and daffs are offended.

We’re just all in a pique over here.

You know you live in Canadaland when…

Yeah. That’s an iPhone shot that I put a little Glaze app on. Early March. It just needs a clutch of tulips.

Back in January I signed on for the A to Z Challenge and talked about it here. I can’t tell you how much fun I had with the 2015 challenge and have really looked forward to 2016. I’ve wrestled for weeks with this decision, but it’s just not going to happen. April has been designated painting month, and I’ll be doing a lot of painting projects involving the interior of this old casa. And when I’m not doing that, I’ll be readying the garden for gardening season. Seeds are already winging their way here from Cubit’s Seed Co. We’ll talk more about that later.

Not only will I not be participating in A to Z, I’ll be clawing back the April posts here from Monday – Friday to Mon/Wed/Fri. And I’m hoping that that is going to be realistic, not pie in the sky, thinking.

I has a sad.

We watched Home (2015 animated adventure, comedy) last night on Netflix. It was a good giggle. Jim Parsons as the voice of Oh. Ermahgerd. And the dancing. I now understand. I have the dancing moves of a Boov. (Video Alert!) All has become clear. Have to give a shout out to Rihanna as the voice of Gratuity ‘Tip’ Tucci too.

Go on. Channel your inner kid and see it. You might discover your Boov moves.

And Monday is in the house.

Tell me how you marked the first day of spring.

Now. Now. Now.
