Hello Spring!

It’s here!  Its really here.  Don’t even try to point out weather forecasts.  I saw THIS in my front yard.

That’s right, skeptics.  That’s a tiny purple clover and a tiny yellow – something I don’t know but it was definitely a flower.  The landlord here has committed ONLY to mowing the lawn and so it’s a happy conglomeration of weeds.  Clover, dandelions, tiny white flowers and a morning glory infestation.  And all of that just cheers me up so much.  I cannot wait for all of it to burst forth.  I really have no idea why we have idealized a monoculture lawn of grass.  Because this lawn is gorgeous.  And requires so little effort.

Those little flowers combined with a beautiful sunny morning in the mid 50s gave me a feeling of delight, gratitude and hope.  It’s been a rather yuck winter.  Not because the weather was particularly bad.  It was a very mild winter here.  But my mood was bleak.  And those tiny burst of color just drained all the bleak out of my mood and filled me with light.

Even The Great Toilet Paper Panic of 2020 couldn’t kill it, despite things being quite scary at work.  Our business went into the shitter in a huge way.  We do transportation for people and all the corporations cut travel out.  All the schools cancelled.  All the big events we service cancelled.  It’s weird to watch a thriving business suddenly teeter in on itself.  Hopefully we can weather the storm.

  1. I just don’t get the whole toilet paper thing. I saw someone coming out of Walmart with what was enough TP for a family of 4 for three months. I know a fellow who works at one of the paper mills that makes Charmin and they’re running 24/7 and can’t keep up. I can understand things like canned food, but months worth of toilet paper? Why?
