Monday Mayhem – What’s so funny?

Here’s a fun fact about me – I hate April Fools Day jokes. In fact, I am not a fan of practical jokes at all. I don’t find embarrassment amusing.

You know what I love? Silly jokes. Absurdities. Your mom jokes.

I bought a new iPad this weekend. Poor Penelope iPad was so ancient Apple wouldn’t update her anymore. Gradually, my apps lost functionality because my operating system was antiquated, and so on, and so forth…

Anyhoo, she will now host fun and educational games for the grandboys. I am typing to you now from my new iPad, Pluto.

Pluto was named for my favorite disrespected planet and one of my favorite jokes:

This makes me laugh. Making someone believe something untrue, or tricking them into making a ‘fool’ of themselves, not so much.

But it is April 1st. A fact that amazes me, all shenanigans aside. Where is this year going? Our trees are budding like crazy. Our world is Fifty shades of green. I planted my first herb garden in an old washtub.

Oh! And I’m leading my first online workshop next week. It’s called Even Superman Had A Day Job and available through the Contemporary Romance chapter of RWA.

As of Wednesday, I will be 8 years without a cigarette. On Saturday, I reached my 900th day of meditation. I am think I may try incorporating some tai chi flows into my yoga routine.

How about you? Planning to try anything new this spring?

  1. Wow, lots of milestones for you! Congrats and keep up the amazing work! As you know, I’ve been cooking a whole bunch lately, and my goal for this spring is to Marie Kondo my life. Well, everything but my shoes. I’m only human.

  2. Last year it was my 50th birthday and I celebrated by doing what I love best, travelling. I travelled extensively last year and thought “to hell with saving!” Well, I paid that price dearly at tax season but still wouldn’t change a thing. The spring season matches right up with tax season so after my heart-attack at the accountant’s office last week, I’m going to focus starting now (in spring) with saving a bit of retirement money and a lot less travel this year.

    Very cool herb garden. Have you done one in a wash tub before? Great idea.
    Good luck with your workshop. I am sure you’ll do great!

  3. Aww, poor Penelope! I remember her! Glad to hear she’ll still entertain the younger generation. Despite my farm-girl upbringing, I do not have a green thumb. I imagine that plants shudder in fear when they see me standing in front of them at the home center, contemplating their purchase. Nevertheless, I’ve been thinking about sticking some sort of large planter on the patio and trying my luck with some herbs and a tomato plant, so your washtub is inspiring. I will never not be proud of you for quitting smoking. Congratulations on 8 years!
