It’s 5:15 pm on Good Friday and I have no plans for making dinner.
I have no plans for making dinner tomorrow either but my mom is feeding us Easter dinner so there’s that to look forward to.
There is nothing else to look forward to in this godforsaken province of endless lockdowns. This time, non-essential retail shall remain open at 15% capacity or something but nothing else. No restaurants. No coffee shops. For all of April.
People keep saying ‘go outside, enjoy nature’ and all that jazz. We’ve been doing nothing else for a year! It’s time to switch it up with something besides walking in the park. UGH.
I’m in a bad mood, can you tell? 😐
I was at my computer all day doing ebook stuff. Then I needed a break and none of the kids were intersted in walking Tucker so I took him.
I took the little beast out for a walk by the lake in brilliant sunshine with a very cold wind blowing off Lake Ontario that had me wearing my winter coat.
Did you know Beagles are stubborn? 😳
Well he picked the wrong hooman to be stubborn with today, let me tell you. He refused to sit when I told him and I out-waited him! Ha! 🎊😈🎉
He finally realized in his little walnut brain that I have all the time in the world (see above, pandemic complaint) and finally pretended to sit without actually sitting. 🙄🙄🙄
So I waited a little longer. 🤪
“I got all day buddy,” I told him and held the leashes extra tight. (Yes, I use two leashes on this dude, what?)
Finally, he sat and gave me the side-eye. Beagles are famous for that! lol
So anyway, I managed to keep the stoopid puppy from eating 💩 right up until the way back when he managed to get a piece. I pried his jaws apart and made him spit it out and when I did I was sort of kneeling and then tipped over and lost control of the leashes and he jumped at the poop and consumed it anyway. SHEESH! 😵
If he wasn’t so cute I’d have dropped him off already. Anyone want a Beagle?
I’m fine. Everything is fine. He just came up to me to beg me for something tasty to eat (probably).
I sent him away. But not without snapping some pictures of his enduring cuteness.
What else is new?
I fell for a prank, an April fool’s thing. That’s me – Ms. Gullible. 😇
The problem was, he wrote about it so convincingly I couldn’t help but believe him. I know him to be a trustworthy guy BUT THAT’S OVER NOW MISTER. I have canceled, deleted AND blocked you! (ha ha) 😛
Actually, I am over the moon thankful for the community I have here on this blog (pranksters aside 😂). If you’re reading these words, and especially if you’re letting me know in some way that you have read here, I thank you.
It’s interesting how this blogging thing has evolved over the years – I was telling LA how I’ve been at it for 16 years and some of the people I met in the first 6 or so stopped blogging because they said it was dead.
I see some of them over on facebook with a small community sharing the same stories with like-minded people over and over again. I lost interest in following along and wonder how they can make the assumption about blogging being dead. It certainly doesn’t feel that way to me! We have engagement, we have community, we have friendships, we have April Fool’s pranks… 😬
Point is, we have this diversity here, a global presence with different perspectives and views, stories to tell that we can either commiserate or relate to…
If it wasn’t for the blog I’d be dead and buried from under-stimulation. 😭
Or, I’d have more books finished. Hah. 📚
I was supposed to meet up with two people/bloggers this week. One of them was only off work on a rainy, cold day and we both decided it was better to reschedule. The other one I didn’t hear from at all…I hope things are okay. It’s so hard to know these days what is going on with this COVID situation.
Well, it looks like dinner was ordered online so off I go.
Happy Easter weekend! See you in the comments.
