So, today was Good Friday and the beginning of Passover. As a result a lot of people weren’t around when I tried to deal with a few issues. It’s amazing how observant some people get when there’s a Friday involved.
Peeps were revolting enough when they were just yellow, but the ‘teal’ and ‘plum’ versions are really gross. I finally saw actual packages of the ‘bunny’ version that I had previously only seen on the ‘Net in videos purported to be ‘humorous’ … OK, whatever. People don’t seem to realized that if they buy them, they will continue to be made. I wonder if anyone actually eats them?
The oak pollen is not letting up. The rain scrubs the air for a few hours, but the yellow dust is back soon after covering everything in sight. This started much earlier than normal this year and is continuing well beyond what we normally experience. I surrendered and switched from pseudoephedrine to loratadine [generic Claritin] so I don’t have to watch the time. I’m also considering attaching a toilet paper holder to the side of the computer desk to make things easier than trying to retrieve a tissue from the box. It might not be classy, but it would be cheaper and more efficient.
The problem is that this is the best time to work on outside projects before the heat index starts hitting triple digits, so I can’t just stay inside with the HEPA air cleaner. I have things that need to be planted, and some building repairs to make.
Well, it’s always something …

It is time.
[Editor: Tonto took over as alpha female when her sister, The Lone Ranger, left for the Bridge, but she hasn't been very happy about it. They shared kitten rearing, sitting for each other when either needed a break, and backing each other when there were conflicts. Lately she has spent most of her time on the lawn in front of my house trying to warm up. Last week she became noticeably shaky on her feet, and then she disappeared to her special place on Monday to prepare to meet her sister at the Bridge. She wasn't very nice, but she will be missed.]
