* I had a good time at a friend's baby shower this afternoon, as I got to sit and chat with many of my friends. Towards the end of the day, I ended up sitting at a table with a bunch of other friends who have health problems. Someone pointed out that most of the people sitting at that table were defective in one way or the other. The one older lady at the table remarked that she felt so young compared to some of us....

* At the baby shower, we got playing cards as party favors. Instead of diamonds, clubs, hearts and spades, the suite had rubber duckies, baby carriages, pacifiers, and rocking horses. I made an ESP joke and asked one of my friends what card I was holding up: it was the three of pacifiers, and obviously my friend got it wrong. Then, she asked, "but is the three of pacifiers a pacifist?" *snicker*

Yeah...I guess you just had to be there.

* The weather was gorgeous so I went for a three mile walk after I got home from the baby shower. [livejournal.com profile] doomsey didn't come with this time because he had walked to the library--a four mile hike both ways-- while I was at the shower. When I got back, [livejournal.com profile] doomsey made dinner and then we watched a four hour Japanese film called "Love Exposure." It was one weird ass film, and I'm not sure whether I liked it or not. The plot seemed kind of disorganized and four hours of that was a bit too much for me. On the other hand, the movie was humorous at times and often poked fun at itself. Also, the outlandishness of many scenes reminded [livejournal.com profile] doomsey and I of "Kill Bill."

* I shouldn't kill spiders in my house, but I do because I am terrified of them. If they're outside, I have no problems. If I find them inside though? SPLAT they go! The same goes for centipedes. If I catch them crawling on a wall, they end up on the bottom of my shoe in no time flat. I hate centipedes the most of all, and I don't even want to get close enough to them to catch them with a wadded up piece of tissue or toilet paper!!! So...under the shoe they go.

Any critter with more than six legs gives me the creeps, and the more legs they have, the worse I hate them.

* Dan wasn't too happy with me earlier this afternoon. I stretched while reading a book and knocked over a lamp. The lamp itself is fine, but the bulb inside it broke. Worse, I didn't realize that the bulb contained mercury until after I picked up the broken pieces with my bare hands. So...if I start acting a little nutty, you'll know why. (Me being nutty is a little par for the course, so in reality, nothing will really change much).

Oh...I also have to replace a cat bed and some cat toys because the lamp fell on them. I could have probably gotten away with cleaning the cat bed really well, but I didn't want to take any chances. Besides, Cosette already has random kidney issues. The last thing we need is for her to come down with any more problems.

* Weeded and turned over my vegetable garden today. I'm planning on growing eggplant, pepper, and squash so I probably won't plant anything until May. I was thinking about growing tomatoes as well, but now I'm not so sure. According to the farmer's almanac, it's supposed to be rainy and cool again this summer. Last year, my tomato plants didn't do so well because it didn't get hot enough.

* After I cleared my veggie garden, I rested for a bit and then started working on weeding and clearing one of my flower beds. I still have to work on the bed next to the garage though, but I think I'll leave that until tomorrow. I also want to do some weeding in the way back. As for big projects, I'd like to put some more cedar chips out in the beds out front and in the way back. I think I'll leave that for when I have a little bit more time, probably in late May. I'm also going to need to borrow a wheelbarrow and a bigger shovel. Lastly, I'd also like to buy a Japanese maple for that one spot I've been meaning to fill for ages. I take it that I should probably wait until May to plant a tree though, huh?
