I'm easily amused

October 6th, 2019 at 07:26 pm

I loved Lucky Robin's latest blog title, "Blah, blah, blah! because I too struggle with coming up with something witty and creative and I'm often unsuccessful at both!

My husband loves his garden and his yard and is so frustrated that we have a squirrel (or more than one!) who has eaten tomatoes and dug holes in the yard. So, I've watched DH chase the squirrel around the yard. Talk about cheap entertainment! I bet that squirrel thinks my husband is a crazy man.

We went to a downsizing estate sale at a really fancy house yesterday. DH did find a beautiful history book for $2 and I was entertained with seeing this lovely home and all its room and fancy furnishings. When I was growing up, my dad drilled into me I needed to get an education so I could get a good job. Our guidance counselor was no help -- he told all the girls in high school they were too stupid to go to college and to become secretaries. I didn't mention he was the football coach and that's all he really wanted to do. I told DH when I was in high school and had no one who had gone to college in the family, that I didn't realize there were many careers for women besides teaching, nursing, and secretarial besides factory work (our town had major industry at this time.) I wonder if I had chosen a different career that paid more if my life would have been way different.

Last night I peeked at SA and could hardly wait for today when I could read the blog posts and catch up with my SA friends. So glad we are back even if entries were lost.

It isn't super cool, but cooler than it has been and I'm looking forward to chili tonight. I pulled some out of the freezer.

Ah, the joys of being easily amused!

    Squirrels are the bane of my gardening existence.

    In our former home, we were eating out on our porch and there was a squirrel sitting on the top rail of the fence, eating a cherry tomato, holding it to his mouth with both paws. Kinda cute, but then to add insult to injury, he didn't finish the whole thing-- just bites. Agggh!

    I can just imagine your DH running around after that squirrel! Made me chuckle!

    I read the paragraph about your DH vs. the squirrel aloud to SB. He laughed aloud, too.

    It was drilled into me to be a secretary -- since I didn't appear to have any capacity for teaching or nursing. I'm so glad the world has changed. I sometimes wonder what I might have done if I had been born a little later!
