Random thoughts on a rainy, stormy April morning:
1. I hope April showers bring May flowers.
2. We are working on installing a fountain in the backyard. The backyard has four sidewalks that lead to a center circle. Right now it’s full of monkey grass. It used to have a bird bath that collected leaves and mold and dirt and debris and then it fell over and cracked.
Good fountain times.
So in an effort to restore dignity to the back yard, we are adding a fountain. Pictures will be arriving soon.
3. I was never that into sports until I married a twinkling-eyed sports fanatic. And now? I’m counting the minutes until the final four tonight. Are you watching? Which teams are you rooting for?
5. I’m speaking next week at the Pinner’s Conference in Atlanta and I’m wearing red lipstick and bell bottoms.
I missed them the first go-round, but I really, really like them now.
They help balance out my hips. 🙂
