This little guy needs to grow into his ear tag.
3. Gripe Alert:
If you have followed along with this blog for several years, you KNOW my disdain for the weather in the month of April. It's such a tease, and the wind.... well, it NEVER stops blowing. Last week was beautiful with temperatures around 65 F. Yesterday, we seriously had 70 mile per hour winds, and it knocked over trees, barrels, fences, and small children.
As if that wasn't bad enough, the wind blew in a snow storm overnight. It's still snowing, and my flowers are confused. My MIL always talks to her flowers when they bloom in April and tells them, "Go back to bed, it's too early for you to bloom." I used to find it odd, but now I find myself telling the flowers the same thing. When I see the buds on the trees, I'm all like, "Fools! You need to wait! A giant snow is going to kill off your leaves! Take heed! Take HEED!"
4. This week, I cracked two eggs into a bowl, and they BOTH had double yolks in them! That's four eggs for the price of two...except, I don't pay for my eggs. They're home-grown. That's right, everything's bigger and better in.....
5. As my real-life friends already know, I spent the majority of last week priming and painting new 4-rail, steel pipe fencing. It's total drudgery! Painting any type of cylinder shaped object is daunting, for that matter. That job is right up there on my list with cleaning mini-blinds, folding socks, picking lice off of monkey's backs, and milking cats. Word to the wise: wear long sleeves and gloves. I learned the hard way. Here's my exact Facebook post from the first day, dripping with sarcasm:
"WOW! Removing oil-based paint and primer from skin is sooo easy! All it takes is a large rasp, medium grit sandpaper, toxic chemicals, and the teardrops of a unicorn. Who knew?!?"
6. I was checking my baby's school work the other day, and I noticed that she erased one of her answers on her language page. When I asked her about it, she informed me that we couldn't be sure that the picture was a bull because it didn't show between the legs. Then she said, matter of fact-ly, "Don't they know that cows can have horns, too?"
