Spring is here. Huzzah, huzzah! The street cleaning machines have done their thing and the greening grass actually doesn’t look too scruffy after being buried in snow for so long.

Hub and I have been out working in the garden and despite the aches and pains at the end of the day, it is so good to be outdoors and active again. I’ve had the smoker out already and made some killer smoked chicken on the weekend. The songbirds are going mad, singing and having mid-air sex.


There are three winged critters making nests under the deck in front of my office window. I have the curtains open and at first, they’d swoop away in fright whenever I moved at my keyboard. Now, after a few weeks, they don’t bother.

I have all sorts of writing deadlines but I am not inspired. Lunch with friends is always a good option and I’m taking it regularly. Here is my contribution to the world of literature and chuckles for this week.
