Errands . . . (and Best Friends)

Have I ever mentioned how much I hate 'errands'? And have I ever mentioned how much I love Marcia?

I've run a half-dozen errands in the past 24 hours, and so I rewarded myself with a long nap. I feel a certain amount of self-satisfaction that I managed to get myself up and leave the house this morning at 8:00 a.m. to attend Rita's rose planting. Rita lives on the other side of the world from us, both from a geographic sense and an economic one. (And, no, I wouldn't trade places!) We got a little lost, but we managed to get there on time. And then we ran out of gas on her hill and couldn't start the car afterward and Marcia had to come to the rescue. (I should have known she'd be there, because she has always respected and liked Rita.)

How do I love Marcia? Let me count the ways. She's the best possible friend in the world, will go out of her way every single time to help. She's so much fun, she makes the most tedious errand an adventure. She never runs out of positive energy. She's snarky in the sweetest possible way and only on rare occasions. She's Good People in the most real sense of the term. I just love her, which is probably why I consider her my Best Friend. (May God continue to protect her on her wild ride through life!)

There are several people who still mix our names up from all that time when we were inseparable. I consider it a tribute, actually, when someone accidentally calls me "Marcia."

Random stuff:

Got caught in a spring storm this afternoon after getting my hair done, and I was grateful it held off and didn't hit during the rose planting. (Hopefully the rest of them were over by the time it did.)

At least taking making less money last year resulted in good news on the tax front -- and it's been quite a while since I had my taxes taken care of in March instead of April!

Charlie and I tried to watch 'Anatomy of a Murder' from the On Demand menu, but I just couldn't stay awake.

And 'Ask the Dust' is now in downtown Vancouver, which is actually a lot more convenient than downtown Portland, even though it's a different state. Maybe we'll go tomorrow . . .

And now I find myself hours away from one of my favorite milestones all year: Daylight Savings Time! That's a huge woohoo! I think I'll play a little Zuma

  • Great Scot!

    What a Gold Medal performance! Loved seeing the Facebook posts, like the one from Rafa congratulating Andy, Roger and Juan Martin ... and ESPECIALLY…

  • Olympic Tennis is Golden~

    I'm not even going to let myself contemplate Murray winning the gold medal there in England during the London Olympics. This year's Wimbledon final…

  • Here we go again . . .

    It's been more than a week since I posted. I never put up my post about seeing Fed and Rafa in Eugene a couple weeks ago. I haven't updated about all…
