No Fooling Around

Yesterday was April Fools Day and I was worried that the day was going to bring some wacky and unusual pranks around my work place. I mean people have been talking it up for the past week or so, so I figured that at least one person was up to something for the day. In a way I was disappointed and in another I am grateful, ya know what I mean?

Happy Valentine’s Day

Well, it’s here again. . Of course, as we all know, Valentine’s Day is just a good marketing scheme for the greeting card companies and florists. I usually do not receive anything for Valentine’s Day. I feel that there are more important things to spend our money on. However, I see flowers on desks of different offices I go into and find myself wishing that I, too would get flowers, just once…..OR AT LEAST A CARD FOR CRYING OUT LOUD (hint, hint).

Happy New Year

It is so cold and windy out that we decided to stay in tonight. We were thinking about eating out, but were actually feeling rather lazy. So we stayed in and cooked up a DiGiorno’s pizza for supper and are going to watch television and watch the ball drop and call it a year. This has been a rough year for many people; I hope next year is a better one for us all! With the presidential campaigns going on, it will certainly be very interesting to say the least!

Merry Christmas to all

Today was a busy, but happy day. Lots of friends and relatives, lots of good food. Not many presents because everyone is feeling the budget crunch. But what is really important at this time of year is getting together with people you care about, right? Christmas is about being with loved ones, and that is what happened, so it is all good. Hope you had a good Christmas too!

Thanksgiving

Well, I can’t believe the year has gone by so quickly. It is already turkey-time again!! I have nothing special planned this year. No family or friends. Everyone has their own plans. So, I think I will spend a quiet day, watching the parades and hopefully some good movies and crocheting. I am working on a blanket for my cousin. I don’t think I’ll even cook anything special unless I get hungry and change my mind at the last minute.

Thanksgiving is such a great holiday. All the food you can eat, and you get to see family you have not seen since last year (and you get to send them home at the end of the day too)!!
