complaining about the weather and other things

Yesterday at the pool a woman asked me what I was doing for Easter. I replied nothing special. She looked sad and asked if my family was far away. I said yes, "but I'm not Christian" so it is just Sunday. She looked appalled and stopped talking to me. I could have told her a lot of other things but I didn't want to break her mind. I could have said that "I'm an agnostic Wiccan" which is what the local hospital got the last time they asked for religious preference.

I do celebrate spring however so went to the local candy store and bought bunnies and eggs. I don't do candy but homemade treats by some good chocolatiers doesn't count. The chocolate was dark so antioxidants, right?

A lot of other people had the same idea and they had everything arranged for efficiency. I got out of there in record time if you define record time relevant to one of the two yearly candy consuming holidays. Go Fabiano's!

Now to the complaint about the weather - it is gray, windy and cold today. Back to wearing wool socks. There are now about a dozen yellow crocus and these pretty purple species ones.
