oddities

hey folks, hope you all had a great Easter, I did

got into the garden, it is now Autumn and I want to get a few things planted (mainly ground covers) while the earth is still warm (I have yet to purchase them, I'm just clearing space).   Also a retaining wall over my path is close to collasping so I have to clear the shrubs and dig it out and re-do it.  Gah to the useless sod who put it in in the first place.

I had some visitors doing the garden though  such a big belly, do you think she has just mated

I also had some random woman knocking on my door at 9 in the morning wanting to know if I would sell my house. I said no,  she was interested in subdividing it.  Gah there is enough infill housing in my valley.   I think she thought that I also owned the empty section next door - only in my dreams.

  I like my little villa and wouldn't sell it!

What is it that sends people into supermarket frenzies the day before a public holiday that requires all but basic service providers to be closed (In NZ, legislation requires this on Xmas day, Easter Friday, Easter Sunday and ANZAC morning).  I went to the supermarket on Thursday to do my weekly shop and holy moly, it was insane.  Why do people panic so, it's hardly like anybody is going to starve on one day and convience stores, service stations etc are open.  sheesh

Hah! It's those people planning their big parties and doing their last-minute shopping. Anybody crash their shopping carts into you? Blocking up the aisles? I hate that. ;)

Haha I know what ya mean about everyone shopping at once. Anytime even a teeny bit of snow is expected here peeps turn into what my friend calls 'blizzard buzzards' & run out to stock up like they'll be snowed in for a week. Like you said it's not like anyone is gonna starve in a couple days.
