APRIL 12, 2019: Why do we fertilize the lawn to make the grass grow,
then complain about having to mow it?
APRIL 13, 2019: Went to lunch with friends today and fought over the tab.
Nobody wanted to pay it.
APRIL 14, 2019: I miss my grandchildren who live out of state.
Hugging the I Pad is just not the same.
APRIL 15, 2019: There are days when I wish I could retire.
Then I remember, I’ve grown accustomed to food and a roof over my head.
APRIL 16, 2019: My grandson, age five, just got his first library card!
In a blink, it will be a driver’s license. Sometimes I hate that time flies.
APRIL 17, 2019: Today is “National Do No Housework Day”.
Wonder if we could campaign to make that a whole week.
APRIL 18, 2019: The birds woke me up this morning, chirping happiness.
We should take lessons from them on our grumpy days.
APRIL 19: I sent my new book off to my publisher today.
I have the same scared feeling I had when my baby went off to kindergarten.
APRIL 20: My mother passed away in April, six years ago.
Wish she was here today to color Easter eggs with me.
APRIL 21: All the church parking lots were overflowing this morning at 11 a.m.
All the local restaurants were overflowing at 12:05 with the Easter lunch bunch.
