Hello and welcome back to Toni Taddeo’s Tuesday 4. Questions are posted here.
1. Spring cleaning is a very old tradition. Some say it began with Passover and removing leaven from the home and the fact that windows begin to be thrown open. What Spring cleaning do you do? My family never observed seasonal anything except for Thanksgiving and Christmas. Myra (my 2nd step-mom) would simply clean 🧹🧽 whenever it was needed. The house was always spotless. She was truly amazing. I try to work and live the same way, if it needs done, I do it. No schedule.
2. Does daylight saving time make any difference in your life for good or bad? Bad, bad, bad. I feel doped for about a week after the time is changed. The time change is stuff and nonsense. That’s why I’ve chosen to NOT change our clocks this year. (So far, so good, by the way.) Just call me BraveFart. 😂😂 For the love of all that’s holy, please pick a time and leave it there!!?? I read a study that proved auto accidents, health problems, etc. increase and productivity decreases for days afterwards with the time change.
I rest my case Your Honor. 💥💥boom💥💥
3. Do you have a spring reading/watch list or perhaps a ‘to do’ list? Nah, I’m retired, I don’t do reading or watch lists. In fact, there’s very little scheduling of anything. I read what I want to read or watch whatever I want to watch. Now that we “stream” 📺 all our preferred shows time is really not a problem. And I do try to tell God every day that I’m so super thankful that I have these (and more) choices. All good things come from God. I hope I’ll always give Him the glory.
4. The “peepers” are back here by the water. There are thousands of this itty bitty frogs (the size of a finger nail) peeping like loud birds. What signs of spring are showing up in your neck of the woods and what Spring flower is your favorite to see blooming? It’s been all flowers, bee’s buzzin’, fruit trees, birds, rain, tree frogs, dragonflies, butterflies and warmer temps! There are wildflowers lining our country roads. The butterflies have emerged flitting from flower to flower. Tree frogs sing when it’s fixin’ to rain. 🐸 The trees are covered with bright, shiny leaves. With all this rain the grass is green and lush. Migratory birds like the Ruby throated Hummingbird, Purple Martins, Barn Swallows, Great-crested Flycatchers, and others have returned for their feathered version of a Summer of Love. 😊 All the birds 🐦 are pairing up, singing at the top of their lungs, staking out territories and building nests. It’s like if joy had a face, it would be Spring. Very nice. 😃
On a personal note, today will be busy here at the Red Bird Acres compound. The new pickup truck needs minor warranty work: a recall from Nissan 🛻 for something-or-other and the tailgate still doesn’t lock. Steve will handle all that. Plus, while he’s in town he plans to stop by Hobby Lobby and pick up a few supplies for me. Then stop to pick up my wedding rings that needed resizing. Meanwhile, I need a haircut, also will stop by the local Dollar General, and a few other stops. The fun never ends.
I hope your day is easy, bright and full of wildflowers in bloom. Thank you for visiting and leaving a comment. 🎕💮🌼💝
This is what the Lord says to me:
“I will remain quiet and will look on from my dwelling place,
like shimmering heat in the sunshine,
like a cloud of dew in the heat of harvest.”
For, before the harvest, when the blossom is gone
and the flower becomes a ripening grape,
he will cut off the shoots with pruning knives,
and cut down and take away the spreading branches.
Isaiah 18:4-5 NIV
