Tidbits ~ 4/2/21

I took the day off from work. First time in a few years. Back in the day though every Good Friday was a day off. Starting with my school days when we have vacation Good Friday and Easter Monday instead of a Spring Break that came later on when I was in high school.

30 years ago on this day, Pony and I would have gone with my parents to the Stations of the Cross at San Jose Mission. Easter has always been my favorite time of the year. Better than Christmas even imo.

Today Lulu Belle and I went to the SA Botanical Gardens. Despite Snowmageddon, they are back in business. All socially distances and hands free entry. But … masks are OPTIONAL! Sacrebleu people. What are you trying to do? But this was mainly outdoors and we stayed far apart. Something we did even pre Covid. And we WORE our masks!!! My nerves were only slightly tingly at the chance we might get too close for comfort to an un-masked un-vaccinated cowboy.

SABo had a fundraiser to adopt a plot of Texas wildflowers for $100. You’d get signage and everything for the whole time the exhibit is in bloom. I really appreciate the nature and considered a donation.

I asked Lulu “Should I do that?

Then before she could answer I said “people are going hungry. I’m not spending $100 on flowers”.

She said “Mom, you should be able to spend your money how you want without feeling guilty”

How’d she know I felt guilty? Well because I wear it on my face. I don’t know why but that’s always been the case. And face/case – poet who didn’t know it. lol. I slay me.

Any hoo, that’s all she wrote. Hope everyone is doing a-ok. Us? We’re living the dream.

As always, more to come.

B: Idiom of the Day ~ 4/2/21

Starts with B – Bite the Bullet

Jilly’s Take: Bite the bullet means to get through torture. Do something to ease the pain. Like in the Westerns when the cowboy takes a shot of whiskey while someone digs a bullet out of his leg. After that visual, we need to move on. Here is a link to more info on today’s idiom. Now let’s listen to some Neil Young shall we? We shall 🙂
