Last week I showed you my spring pictures - forsythia, Carolina jasmine, azaleas, all the beautiful harbingers of spring. This morning it snowed! I'm in Fort Smith, 2 hours north of Hot Springs, visiting my son for the weekend and it snowed on us. Tomorrow night the low is supposed to be in the upper thirties. All the plants I took outside now have to come back in. I think Mother Nature must be mad at us.
The other day I mentioned the media and their biases. And I mentioned my dislike of all the negative stuff that I hear from them. Today it's movies I'm not happy with. I think I'm going to have to confess that my age must be affecting my views. I don't like movies where people get hurt, where people get abused or accused falsely or where they are victims at all. I guess I ought to just watch Disney. But then Cinderella was a victim so maybe Disney isn't safe for me either. I love romantic comedies - you know the kind I mean? Where it's funny without someone getting hurt? Like "How To Lose A Man In 10 Days" or "Sleepless in Seattle". That's my kind of movie!
And on a completely different note, since I gave up my Chai Tea Lattes for Lent I've been drinking Diet Cherry Limeades from Sonic. With extra ice and extra cherries please. Do you know that every Sonic you go to makes them different? Last week I got my drink and didn't put the straw in till I got to Bible Study. There were no cherries and no lime. Yesterday I went to one Sonic and place my order only to be told "we're low on extra ice." Excuse me? Low on extra ice? I got ice, but not extra ice. Sometimes I get one piece of lime and one cherry and sometimes I get 2 pieces of lime and 4 cherries - and that's when I don't ask for extra cherries! It's been a game my husband and I have played, sort of, to check my drink after they bring it to see what they did!
On Monday my guild is holding it's annual retreat, called Quiltmania. We go to a nearby 4H Center and stay from Monday till Thursday. There will be about 50 people there during the day, and about 30 spending the night. It's a blast! I'll report back to you.
