I don’t get out much.Yes – I just came to that realization. I went to the doctors yesterday and I was sitting there trying to think when I last stepped outside my house and I think it was for my last doctors appointment about a week and a half ago. Pathetic isn’t it?
You’d think I was an old lady from what I just said above wouldn’t you? NOT. I just have a belly ache that won’t go away. I’m starting to feel like this is my theme song:
“She put the lime in the coconut, she drank ’em both up (3x)
Put the lime in the coconut, she called the doctor, woke him up,
and said, Doctor, ain’t there nothin’ I can take,
I said Doctor, to relieve this bellyache,
I said Doctor, ain’t there nothin’ I can take,
I said Doctor, to relieve this bellyache”
Actually, just listening to that song makes me feel better. Maybe I should either play it all day, or trying putting the lime in the coconut and drink it all up? I’d probably end up adding some rum if I did the lime and coconut though. Wouldn’t you?
But it was nice being out yesterday. My husband and I made an outing of it and got some groceries done and stopped to get some food for the turtles. No- I’m not going to tell you what we bought for the turtles- it will gross you out.
I sat in the car while my husband popped into the store. The radio was playing a run of David Bowie songs. I forgot how much I like David Bowie. They were playing China girl while I waited. Kind of ironic since I was sitting in Toronto’s little china town in the East end at that time.
That’s what I should do to make myself feel better, play music all day. But of course if I play music all day I’d eventually end up dancing to a song or two. Might as well set up a webcam if I’m going to do that and be like the Daily Dancer. Yep, I could give all my visitors a daily dance. Of course since I’m a girl some of you would probably want to see a different kind of dance than what the Daily Dancer does.
Anyway, I’m glad that Spring is finally here! That should make me feel better too. I can’t wait for my garden to really start waking up. Naturally, as it starts to wake up I’ll have to get out and there and do some work, but I enjoy that.
I’m also going to try to get out for a walk everyday now that spring has arrived. Murphy’s Law dictates that as I sit her typing out this post it’s -8 Celsius. Brrrr. I think I’ll wait until the afternoon when it’s bound to be warmer.
Oh, I think I have a way to solve some of my upcoming money woes! No- I’m still not going to do that kind of dance! I’d need to put a lot of rum in the coconut to end up doing that! Get your minds out of the gutter will you?
A few people that my husband and I work with rent out a room in their house to students coming in from other Countries to study English or other courses. Sometimes the student stays in your home for as little as one week, or two weeks. I think the longest is one month. One agency pays $750 for boarding a student in your home for a month. I believe you have to provide one or two home cooked meals a day along with the room. No problem. We have a three bedroom house, and right now there is just the two of us. Our co-workers who do this say that the students are barely ever home. If that’s true we’d still have a lot of privacy. I think we are going to try it out. At least it’s short term and if we don’t like it we don’t have to do it again.
I’d like to thank everyone who has commented on my new theme. I’m very happy with it. The color is a nice spring – like color isn’t it?
