Happy Thorsday, little friday, Thankful Thursday and more! I love alliteration, but the regulars already know that, so hang on for the M-ride. It’s either that, or you’ll need wine to get through my whines about the weather and such, so humor me.
March and its Mmmms…
Mud. You’ll have to click over to the girls’ blog if you want to see THEIR muddy bodies, but you can also see the tractor tire marks in the soft soil. Isn’t Gretchen Greer dapper in her blaze orange coat?
Our walks are being controlled by that soft, saturated soil. We simply cannot tread some places because the path is swamped, flooded, or otherwise too wet/gross to walk through, over or around. The hidden thankful? No drought conditions here, so brush fires shouldn’t be much of a problem this spring.
March Madness. In contrast, that’s a happy MMMMMM. I played basketball, my mother played basketball, and I love me some college basketball, even if UVA isn’t playing. (Extra credit to anyone who pulls for them in the NIT. The Knight’s dear uncle has this crazy idea that the Hoos might make it to the final four there.)
Mix, wintry mix. As in… make up your mind Mother Nature. My stylist is from Atlanta, and she says the southern “Phil” did predict a long winter. Yes Virginia, there is snow in March and I’m not amused, even when it’s that perfect icy powder. Not sure I can find a thankful here.
Meetings. My life revolves around meetings, but the ones this month have been and will be pivotal. Earlier this month, the Knight presented awards as Chief for the last time. Later this month, regular planning for next fiscal year stuff for the League will collide with changing the course – or most accurately, the focus – of the JLC. I won’t bother muttering about all the other meetings along the way, and I most definitely don’t want to talk about all the ones lurking next month as we ramp up for transition from this year to next… Thankful? Well, it’s always exciting to plan for the upcoming year and we’ll soon be celebrating the successes of this year.
What are you muttering about today?
