It's Still Raining

I have a feeling it's going to be one of those springs where it rains a bit every day.  No heavy down pours, just drip, drip, drip.  Good to get the pollen out, bad enough to keep me out of the yard.
Mac saw the first alligator of spring last Friday, says he's grown, that's nice.
I saw where King Richard III was buried with honors at Leicester Cathedral, too bad it wasn't York, I mean he was Richard of York.  Some people don't think he should have been given honors, obviously they know little about him, other than what Tudor apologists have written.  During his reign property laws were reformed to protect buyer, the system of bail was introduced and who could be on a jury was reformed so jurors couldn't be suborned.  Needless to say Richard is a hero of mine.
Glad to see that Sean Penn's latest movie The Gunman tanked at the movies this weekend.  If you don't like guns, think people shouldn't own them,  then don't make movies glorifying them.  I'm talking to to you too Liam Neeson.
I started crocheting a basket today, inspired by Amy at Love Made My Home, but mine's not out of yarn it's out of jute and boy is it hard on the fingers.  Going to look pretty good though, you sew glass beads onto it when it's finished.


  1. Spring seems to be in full bloom here in So, CA.

    Packing, running errands and getting ready for our trip to OR. Will leave Sat.

    I haven't been to the movies in a LONG time.

  2. I despise Sean Penn typical PC democrat liberal do as I say not as I do garbage.
    Richard 111 should have been buried at York Minster. He was the last of the Plangent Kings.

    cheers, parsnip

  3. I have long been intrigued by the history of England and its ruling families. Surely Richard III was no more wicked or self-serving than others. I think that the long-standing reports which villanize him are an example of slanted 'reporting' which is still so prevalent today; a system not about who one is but what the popular 'press' says one is. Wouldn't it be amazing if the remains of his murdered nephews were found after all these centuries?
    I hope we'll see your finished basket!

  4. Ohh, your basket sounds exciting! I look forward to seeing more. I hope the rain stops soon for you! xx


A Bit of a Milestone

Friday I went to the commissary with Mac to grocery shop and I managed to get all of it done without having to sit down and rest.  That ma...
