Talking to Youngest Daughter the other day…telling her something I heard on NPR. It was something awesome and inspiring and deeply moving and no doubt humorous and full of truth, all at the same time.
She listened attentively.
And she responded, “you listen to NPR?!?”
Hmph. Yes. Yes, I do, and it doesn’t take away from my kewlness.
In other news, we have been totally enjoying a blissful March, with the middle of the month free of wind, and with temps in the high 60’s and low 70’s.
Last fall, with Wonderful Guy’s initiative and motivation, we hied ourselves to the local hardware store and bought a bag ‘o tulip bulbs. Fifty of ‘em, then we went around the yard and stuck them in the ground.
Well, ‘we’ did until the guy ended up with blisters from the bulb digger thingie. I finished while he was in doctoring his wounds, so he didn’t know where the last several ended up.
Last week he asked me if some of those tulips ended up over by the blah blah blah because something was coming up…and I was all ‘Ohmigah! I forgot about the TULIPS!!! Lemme see lemme SEE!!!’
We have tulips sprouting all over, and hopefully soon we will have some blooming. Oh, I am not fooling myself. I know its just mid-March. We are due chilly weather yet. Maybe even more snow. This is
after all! But still…we planted tulips last fall! Colorado
In the meantime, these bloomed this week.
