I got this new job, yeah? And the commute is completely different. Now, instead of seeing things like this on the way to work:
When frog stuffies go bad!
I see things like this:
Political squirrel side walk squirrel!
Apparently, you can find out more here. And,
Lost little Hello Kitty glove. Cold fingers are occurring! Right now! Oh, the humanity!
Beautiful little snow drops! Spring is coming. No, really. It is. Further proof of spring? Fine, I’ll show you!
That little whitish nub to the right? That is an onion seedling just struggling to live and thrive and survive!
IMMA GONNA EAT YOU! Snicker.
Gardening can be creepy. Which is why I got involved, to be perfectly honest.
Let’s see, what’s been going on. Hmmmm. Oh, I know. Spring must be coming ’cause we’ve started planting out seeds for the veggie garden.
All those little cells of dirt will one day be onions. Mmmmmm, onions. Last year we planted 96 onion seedlings and thought that was too many. Yeah, right! I used the last of them this week. Sooo, this year we’re doubling the onion crop.
And, in the interests of winter being not quite over, I finished a big warm wool afghan for the couch. Squooshy!
Oh, and I started my new job today. My brain feels about 5 pounds heavier than it did this morning when I left the house. LOL And now, I’m going to go do the dishes and knit a bit. Happy Monday!
I’m going to be starting a new job soon, in Vancouver. There will be some things I’ll miss about commuting in Surrey. Things like coming across a giant abandoned frog stuffy at 7:30 in the morning on the way to the office.
Only in Surrey could a frog stuffy look like he’s been out on an all night bender. Poor guy.
Misty water coloured memoriiiieeeeessssss! Of the way we were! All this remembering is because I saw a local landmark in the throes of being demolished today.
This used to be The Dell Hotel. It is soon to be rubble and then probably high rises. Actually, for the last few years it was called The Oasis Hotel, but to me it’s always been The Dell. It was one of two local bar/hotel/clubs in the neighbourhood.
It was always a bit sketchy, sort of a dive. But, it was always just sort of there, you know? And now, it won’t be. The times & the town, they is a changin’.
In other news, if I leave my iPod on and unattended in the house husband likes to take a screen shot of whatever it was I was doing and leave it for me.
Then, when I come back to it and it ‘doesn’t work’ and I start to panic he laughs. You think he’d stop finding it funny and I’d stop panicking. So far, neither of those things has happened.
