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.

  1. Not only would you be contributing towards nature cleaning our atmosphere and providing oxygen, but you would also be helping bring joy to, and lift the spirits of, all those who saw your sponsored flowers!

  2. Yep, my kids are always telling me to do stuff for myself. “You deserve it!” they say. Still hard for me too. We used to have to sit in our house with the curtains closed from 12 to 3 on Good Friday, praying the rosary.

    1. I remember it was always a solemn day. Mom and dad fasted. More rituals that I am probably forgetting. Then Easter bloomed with morning Mass in a new outfit, bonnet and patent leather shoes.

  3. My daughter, now well into adulthood at thirty-one, also calls me out when I defer something for me, claiming my interest frivolous. Nice to hear about other daughters making sure us mom’s are nurturing ourselves!
