Spring has quite rudely neglected to show up here in Minnesota after RSVPing to the invite. We have had record cold temps on the overnights and today we are expected to set a record low for high temp for the day (yes, that right, read it slowly). I’m not impressed.
I had Monday off. We got 8+ inches of snow. Luckily for me I had a tremendous “to do” list so kept busy. As an acknowledgement to the snow globe outside I listened to Prince’s “Parade” on repeat all day. It both did and did not make me feel better.
April, being the cruelest month as discussed above, brings with it the annual Poem-A-Day Challenge. I am proud to say I am up to date. This year I am writing fun little poems that make me smile. They aren’t for public consumption. It has really helped to get my mind into an active space again.
Apropos nothing: A couple nights ago we were watching “The Emperor’s New Groove” which is considered to be an All Time Classic in our house. Something occurred to me that hadn’t before and I’m sad it took me so long to notice. In the main character family we never hear the name of the wife (voiced by Wendy Malick). I also don’t know that we hear the name of the daughter. We do, however, know the name of the son the second he is on screen.
