Usually when I wake up in the morning, there is a column just swirling around in my head. But this last week I have been dying when I go to bed. You know how it is when you come home from being away from home a long time. Everything is just piled in the floor and it is your job to put it back where it should go.
Of course I was about to panic because I remembered I had not filed my income tax. Did not have a clue which pile of mail to look through so I could get all the information that I needed and all that other stuff could just sit there. You know how the government is!
Then for some reason the Hubby got a little anxious because he saw all the fisherman out on the water fishing and he didn’t even have his boat out of the shed. He really got ticked off when I reminded him we had water over the walk way to our dock and how in the world was he going get to his boat. It really made him mad when I mentioned that I forgot he could walk on water.
I kept telling him that the men in the boats said they were not catching anything. You ladies know men do not listen! So get really you fisherman of the world, THE HUBBY IS GOING TO PUT HIS BOAT IN THE WATER THIS WEEKEND! It would tickle me if Mother Nature sent a snow storm and froze the lake. The way she has been acting lately, she just might do it.
I must tell you the latest “duck story”. You know I fell in love with the green heads and the mallard duck that come by my house every day. You know the one’s that love popcorn. Well, today I stocked up on all the “day old” bread at Walmart and the cashier asked me if I was having a party. I told her we were; three ducks, the Hubby and I were going to have a blast! Guess what, she just looked at me a little funny. I bet she won’t ask me anymore questions.
Forgot to mention that we have two new white ducks. They just appeared out of nowhere. I thought they might be the ones that one of my neighbors told me they were tangles in fishing line near her house last spring. Then winter before last another neighbor told me the eagles got some others we were feeding. I even called my friend who said he was going to purchase some and put them in at his place and his reply was, you got to be kidding! I have had so much work to do I haven’t even thought of ducks. So if you are missing two white ducks, let me know. I would like for them to move on because they are mean. Just guess you will have to call me the DUCK WHISPERER or the duck magnet. I am accumulating everything else that floats on water, why not two more ducks.
I will promise you that next week I hope to have my act together, also my house in order, my taxes filed and the Hubby’s boat in the water. After all this is completed I will declare a “Tulip Green” holiday so I can once again get in the habit of enjoying the moment! Bye now.
