There is an episode of the Golden Girls where Blanche is telling Dorthy of a mood she calls Magenta. Where one isn't green with envy or blue...grumpy but you don't want to be - Magenta! I chuckle every time I hear this segment. I guess I am feeling magenta. The sun is shining bright , its the end of March and bitter cold. I yearn to be outside. Pulling weeds, going for a walk..anything - if this wind would just die down. Mother nature just isn't ready yet, so I should just discard this magenta and be patient (would that be a lavender?)
So now that you know I am feeling way too cooped up, here's what I have been up to in a non office environment.
Mending small mends to list on Ebay. I replaced pant closure hooks, added belt loops to where belt loops were poorly removed (but just one set - not all of the loops - weird), shaved small pills off of a ponte dress. These 3 pieces netted about $30, costing about $10 to start/finish. Not a bad margin.
I had people over for dinner. Between heart healthy, GERD diets and picky taste buds - it took a week just to plan white fish, roasted potatoes and green beans. And wouldn't you know, there is now a white fish allergy to add to the list. How did something so simple become so difficult. Please note - health issues are legitimate, picky taste buds, need to be grateful.

And if you're wondering why I am so focused on weight/eating - once again - taking family to doctors appointments, I swear they put up the BMI posters just to mess with me.
Saturday, eastern PA is to reach the high 60's. if you need me, I will be out pulling weeds, wrangling yard sticks. When did pulling weeds become something to look forward to?
Until then, I hope you never experience the mood magenta.
