Instant Gratification

In my lifetime, this is the first year that I didn't yearn for spring and gripe about how long winter was. (That I can remember)

We have all become spoiled. I am not fond of winter and I definitely do not like the heat and humidity of summer. Logic tells us that when spring comes, can summer with it's undesirable aspects be far behind? I am not in any hurry. 

We all want, what we want and we want it yesterday. 

I ordered some new solar lights for the yard today. I had my choice of how fast I wanted my order shipped to me and how much I was willing to pay to have it come sooner. That company is taking advantage of our "Instant Gratification" society. Smart marketing!

DH didn't work last night. When he was trying to sleep yesterday, he was coughing and coughing. I could hear him tossing and turning. He went to the doctor. Many of the people (mostly men) are sick and the job is falling behind. Seems their clock in and out is only cleaned once a day. He told me that he mentioned this fact to one of the bosses and so far the concept of contamination has gone over their heads. Security is really tight there, I don't think a box of anti-microbial wipes would be allowed in. Nothing allowed in or out. Geesh!

 We're having another beautiful day here. I'll take it! I hope you have one too!

  1. Yes, I hear you. I love spring in the Pacific Northwest and until last year summers weren't bad. This year I'm dreading the arrival of summer for fear it will be another hot one. Perhaps your husband could clock in and immediately head to the washroom to wash his hands. I do a lot of hand washing these days. Didn't use to do that.

    1. I stand corrected - DH says that it is the checking area for radiation, where hands, foreheads, and noses come in contact with the same surface all day. My thought - noses, ew!

  2. That bird is adorable! Beautiful weather here too. I found out that much as I longed for snow during our warm winters, when I came, I found out I'm too old to really enjoy it.

  3. I am so ready for Spring! But I don't care for the summer heat anymore either. But I promise I won't complain ;-)

  4. Even though Autumn has begun, according to our calendar, our trees haven't started to change yet so I'm guessing more hot weather for us. But I really am looking forward to the cooler months. Much easier to stay warm than to stay cool

    1. You do have cooler evenings now, don't you? The change will come - there is no chance we will be cheated out of it.

  5. Oh gosh, I hope he gets to feeling better soon. I don't like when I get a cough...it always goes on and on..miserable! I wash my hands more now than I ever have before.
