May Day, on its Way

I have no idea how that happened, 4 months gone by already in this new year!

AW/W:  Good trip with my beloved, although planning a weekend around a genocide makes for some emotional burden.  We saw baby geese, little yellow fluffy ones, and lots of them!  And a solar-powered Earth Day celebration, which was pretty festive despite the rain delay.  My husband was asking an awful lot of questions of somebody who converted his regular car to batteries; one can only hope he isn't preparing to begin a new hobby....  ;)

Pet report:  Spot the cat shall henceforth be known as Spot The Incorrigible.   He has never been much of an athlete, and until recently was quite shy; but today he got up on the counter (first time) and was attempting to eat some snack mix.  Last night, the dog got into a box of baked goods that my husband meant to take to the office today.  We actually do feed them appropriate food, and plenty of it!  Maybe they were upset that most of the staff just disappeared for a couple days?

Know the Pixies have things going on.  Do share.

Scotland, and other brave things

Sue is either headed for or has arrived in Scotland!  Hope the trip is wonderful.

Due to the press of stuff, I might be an inattentive host, and an award ceremony is uncertain.  But feel free to circulate the W's and AW's, and nominate others as appropriate.  :)

AW:  Polly, the very shyest of cats, a cat who does not permit humans to pet her, a cat so secretive that many people think she does not really exist -- Polly decided to try curling up with her lifelong fellow rescue cat, Spot, even though he was sleeping at the human's feet!!!  Over 7.5 years, my friends, for this amazing breakthrough. 

What's the news with youse?

Tax week, and other issues of modern life

U.S. taxes due on Wednesday.  Never a joyful event, except mine are in and I like some of what my money buys for the greater good.  Schools!  Infrastructure!  Stuff to help families!  Research!  I'm pretty sure there is some for puppies and rainbows, but none for unicorns.

Y'all can comment respectfully on political news if you want.  There is a lot of that, and all I want to say is GO, LIZ!  And I'm passing the popcorn, because it looks like there will be quite the show during the never-freakin-ending primary season; at least in some sectors.

Wildlife report:  cat on my desk, wanting my sandwich.

What's up with you?

Half Hearted Awards Show

Allergy medicine awards to all the sneezing, sniffling, itching Pixies.

A footstool and comfy chair to all still recovering from post-holiday meal preparation.

A good night's sleep to all still recovering from post-holiday traveling.

Hugs to KLee for working her way through an untenable work situation.

Hugs to kathy a for Teh Sad, and waiting hopefully for help from the doctor.

The posse will be gathering all the Pompous Know-It-Alls and subjecting them to silly internet "repost this or else" memes all day long.

Hooray for days off, sweet daughters, visits with grandma, cows, and kittens.

Great Yellow Clouds of Pollen Whining

For real, pixies, you can *see* the pollen in the air. Oak trees the culprit, switching over to pecan. Blech. Also, the humidity.

I have very little in the way of brain waves or thoughts that are completely formed this morning, so I'm just going to put this here so we can all whine together.
