Odds and Ends

I enjoyed reading a P.G. Wodehouse novel for the first time and will be adding him to my list of great authors. Often when I am at the library, I borrow books on a whim, hoping to find a winner. Suffice to say, I did.
I found Leave it to Psmith, where the character "Psmith" has amongst other quirky behaviors, added the "silent-P" to his name as a means of separating himself from all the other ordinary Smiths. Since Psmith is a central character in several of Wodehouse's novel, he is considered to be his own series with overlaps with other series in the Wodehouse collection.
And there's nothing better I like than great characters in multiple series.

With warmer weather promised and a new backyard of my own to cultivate in the coming months, I am looking to get some seeds planted indoors. My fanciful checklist grew so long that I was forced to scale back. But after a trip to the local hardware store, I was discouraged due to the price per package for the properly marked seeds. And by 'properly marked' I mean, they actually tell you the year the seeds were packaged for. Another rack in the store was displaying the cheaper seeds, but there was no stamp indicating what year they were for. Soooo...I came home with nothing and now need to find other seeds places in the area. Fortunately, there are several notable farm and garden stores in the city, so perhaps my list can be purchased soon.

Our son has come down with a terrible cold and cough which produces the most horrendous hacking and gagging combination ever. His chest has been listened to by a doctor and it appears to be clear. So now we must wait for it to pass. If you remember, please pray for him. He is in good spirits despite this uncomfortable affliction and for that we are thankful.

My packing list has seen some items crossed off, but it has not produced that many boxes yet. As I hope to be visiting my mom for over a week starting with Easter, I will be making up the boxes later this month. I'm not worried yet, as we have most of May to finish up before we move. However, as any homemaker knows, the minutes race by the hours and dinnertime with the family always come faster than one can imagine.
