Happy Birthday, Mr. Fred Rogers. And TCRG Ma, and my girlfriend's daughter who turns 20 years old today. M told me earlier this week that today is National Sweater Day, in honor of Mr. Rogers.
I always loved him, and his show. Did you know, he was also an ordained Presbyterian minister? Fred Rogers dies at 74
It's a very windy day today. Tuesday evening, after a mini-ceili but no one w/ energy to go out after, after sprinkles in the day including my coworker's dad's funeral, as if signaling the end of the St. Paddy's Day season of wearin of the green, the rain started in with more earnest. Both the local town parade and the big city parade this past weekend were rain (and snow) free! YEAH and wow! M did FANTASTICALLY. She got her dream of finally being able to dance on a float in her solo dress, while it moved through the "big city' parade. She'd been allowed to the past few years, but she'd been with C, and so she couldn't go. Even Monday was busy, with me taking M up to dance at Si's school (precious the two of them), and her being the highlight of the show at a retirement/nursing home my main dance group danced that evening. Good times. Just, done. And the rain began.
The rain stopped this morning. Wind advisory until late tonight, rain again tomorrow. Of course -- doesn't it always rain, as if God crying, on Good Friday? A cold rain?
I'm so ready for the new season now. While St. Paddy's Day season was a lot of fun, M and I were both sick for enough of it, even w/ things scaled back a lot, even while enjoying it (including some extra time with E! yes, I should have known, he'll deal with me and how I am to him, what I say, not worry about SO ("So, last night must have been pretty stressful for you?" "Yes. Thanks for helping me out with it." "No problem." Phew.) I'm ready now to move on.
Even if this morning my car said, "Check gages." Shouldn't that be "gauges?" Sigh, low on antifreeze again, apparently, as the gauge indicated hotter than desired (but not overheating). (I have to replace it often until I can get the radiator and/or hoses fixed.) Even if my paycheck comes next week, oh, good, I have about $67. to cover me until then, as long as the double-charge of another date gets fixed. Even with just now receiving a response from C / Sh about Easter break (which starts tomorrow,all!).
So, this Robin says Happy Spring as well! To get you rapping along with the change of seasons, per a Montessori teacher (named Darin Cort): -- YouTube - Montessori: The Rap If you click on "for more info," you'll see the printed words.)
I shoudl add -- it IS Maundy Thursday. The day in honor of the Last Supper. Easter feels way too early this year. Maybe we'll have fish for dinner, and bread.?
