“Spring is the time of plans and projects.”

The house was chilly this morning so I was surprised to find outside was so warm. It is already 66˚. The sun is bright. The sky was cloudy, but now it is blue. There is a wind.

When I was a kid, some things drove me crazy. Knee socks which didn’t stay up but rather piled around my ankles was one of them. Women who wore Kleenex on their heads as hats at mass was another. It looked silly, and I never understood why. They knew they needed hats. Creamed corn looked disgusting to me. Girls who squealed drove me crazy. I wanted to slap them. A peanut butter and grape jelly sandwich was never a favorite. The jelly seeped through the bread and left a mess in the middle of the sandwich. Rough towels and scratchy sheets are on the list. We didn’t have a dryer. I hated when my shoelaces broke, and I had to knot then. They never tied tightly after that. Our phone party line was a major irritant. We had to wait for Mrs. McGaffigan to stop talking so we could make and receive calls. I think she listened. I know we did.

As I got older, irritants didn’t disappear, but I learned to tolerate the old ones better and got a few new ones.

Crooked pictures need straightening right away, and I hate hauling my laundry up two sets of stairs. Sometimes when I am on the deck, the guy who lives behind me puts his music up so loud I end up going inside the house. He’s the one who thought Gracie was a wolf. Ketchup on scrambled eggs is just gross. Ketchup on hot dogs defies tradition.

Henry has been out for the longest time, and I want to finish so I can join him. Today needs to be savored.
