just stunning. Some people in my herb club have told me that its mate was killed. Is it true that swans mate for life? I find that whole scenario excruciatingly sad. That dear, dear beautiful bird. I wonder if it mourns - or if it feels loneliness. Goodness, we humans just la-de-da along and so often the only time we stop to feel is when the being suffering is us.
It’s quite overcast today and rather chilly but hey, that’s the way Spring is, one day sunny and warm the next cool and it always rains a lot. You know that old saying, "April showers bring May flowers."!!!
Yesterday was one beautiful Easter. I took the Southwest Sausage Bake to church for breakfast and everyone enjoyed it. Somebody made biscuits and gravy and they weren’t too shabby either!
My husband was called into work yesterday evening so I was home alone in the evening. Goodness, it’s been awhile since I spent holidays without him. We spent most of our married lives with him working holidays. First he used to work
swing shift and then he was on call 24 hours a day so I got used to just going on ahead with or without him. These last 10 years though we’ve been just about inseparable so I just had to shake it off last night. I couldn’t believe how used I was to having him around all the time. Not that I didn’t make use of the time. I was a very lazy woman - I sat and watched those Mary Higgins Clark movies all evening. My hubby could not have have tolerated such a thing!!! Hey, a girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do!!!!
Went out on my lunch hour today and bought a new gazing ball for my herb garden. Last Fall I broke my beautiful blue one. Shoot, they don't even make them as big as the one I busted. I was heartbroken but oh well. I also bought some planter liners so I'm ready to plant flowers in my planters on the deck as soon as it's warm enough. There are so many little things I need this year. After 10 years things just start to wear. I hate it but I've got to break down and get some new garden junk. Kind of exciting to be truthful!!
