Welcome to a Secret Subject Swap. This week 9 brave bloggers picked a secret subject for someone else and were assigned a secret subject to interpret in their own style. Today we are all simultaneously divulging our topics and submitting our posts.
“ What do you hope your April Showers will bring?”. It was submitted by my friend Sarah over at My Brand Of Crazy. Here goes:
Thanks, Sarah! Well, I can definitely hope we are not going to get any more winter weather, but apparently, it came back with a vengeance this morning. I was all snug in my bed after narrowly surviving a stomach virus of epic proportions. I named her Gladys (G.I.Virus + she was a bi-atch!). All germs banished by my loving husband (who is now experiencing his own bout with Gladys). Sheets had been lovingly washed, bed remade with my favorite sheets and blanket (because that’s the man I married. He has made it his mission to banish all germs from our lives while I sit at the computer and thank my lucky stars). The windows were thrown open to enjoy the beautiful Spring evening.
Finally, I was able to go to sleep without coughing my brains out and spitting like a truck driver in a dive bar. I was wrapped in my own comfortable little world…until the temps dropped to 29 degrees. Loving hubby no more, elbows me in the ribs, “close the windows”. I elbow him back immediately and grumble euwww (at least that’s how it sounded in my graveling morning voice. “No, you” “No!You!” Back and forth until finally, I say, “you know I can take the cold so much better than you. Plus I will probably have a hot flash and warm right up!”
I woke up at 8 and found that apparently he and the dog had taken off for the warmth of the fireplace downstairs. I wrapped back up in my blanket with a sigh of relief. Menopause can have its advantages.
So, what do I hope will come in with April showers is, of course, beautiful flowers and that beautiful yearly blizzard that people in the north call pollen.
