It's all the fault of Easter Eggs

So many people are complaining that they've gained weight during the pandemic.  Me?  I've been losing weight for the past five years -- 20 pounds so far.

But - the reason I'm gaining weight this past month is the usual one for this time of year - Easter Candy.  Sees has the most delicious easter eggs and  I love the Mayfair ones - dark chocolate covered easter egg with cream filling stuffed with nuts, candied cherries and other good stuff.  Yum. 

Since I always eat salad for lunch, when I run out of my Sees Mayfair easter egg stash, my weight will get back on it's gradual losing weight thing again.

Squirrels attack

 Squirrels would chew through the plastic bins we kept the bird food in, then attack the bird food. 

So we went to metal trash cans for the bird food, and they figured out how to pry the lids off, 

So we began putting bricks on top of the lids to the metal cans -- and they finally couldn't get into the bird food.

When I log into a Zoom meeting

Want to know why my square on Zoom is always black?

It's because when I log into a meeting/ lecture, Zoom shows me what my picture will look like at the zoom meeting. And I rear back and mutter, "Who IS that old, ugly person?" and choose No Video.  

No matter that I even showered and wore nice clothes to the meeting, my zoom square is black. (with my name on it)

Let a child be bored

I had two 10 year old boys at my house on Saturday. They were bored. Complained that they were bored. I ignored them. Told them I wasn't there to entertain them. 

So - they played hide and seek. They raced around the neighborhood on their scooters, one of them teaching the other how to do stuff. They got into my child instruments. played the Kazoo. Did such a good job on the drums that I think they should join a drum line. 

They did what kids used to do before electronics were invented.
