Nope. On the contrary I have so many things whirling around in my head from this past week to write about that nothing has gelled yet. Not even this rather late in the weekend. Read on and you’ll see what I mean.
Work contract extension. Jewelry “homework.” Lots of parties this week…from a work party to a great girls night in with my neighbor A to watch reruns of the Real Housewives series on Bravo. Shamelessly. Oh, and Easter. Time with family today. An INTENSE Canucks/Blackhawks playoff series right now (I’m a huge Canucks fan, by the way). A fabulous silent auction last night to benefit a team a few friends will be playing on next week in a tournament to benefit Hockey Fights Cancer. Once I saw the spa package up for bid…AND the TPS hockey stick (a lefty – yay!) decked out in PINK, yep, with the breast cancer awareness ribbons on it…I knew those two beauties would be mine. And they are!
I started the evening yesterday meeting my dear friend J for sushi before we headed to the auction. And ended it meeting another friend J for a drink afterwards at the bar nearby…one of the guys I’ve know through the league for years but we fell out of contact recently. Good to reconnect. Too funny how I was tired yesterday and didn’t think I’d stay at the auction too long, but I ended up heading home close to midnight with a pretty long drive ahead of me.
Now I’m even more tired and ready to hit the coffee before spending some time with my family to celebrate Easter. Can you believe how LATE Easter is this year? It’s about as late as it can be.
Ahem, excuse my geekiness, but I happen to know why. There was a full moon just one day prior to the Vernal Equinox (the first day of spring) this year. Easter always needs the Equinox first, then a full moon, then a Sunday. So because a full moon was just the day prior to the Equinox this year, the moon had to go through a whole wax and wane cycle again…it wasn’t full again until April 18, a Monday. Since Easter has to be on a Sunday we had to go another week till today, Sunday April 24.
And there’s your Easter lesson from a rather tired fivenineteen here. Time to get ready for brunch, visit with family and then glue myself to the Canucks/Hawks game tonight. Can the Canucks finish off the series and send the Hawks to the golf course? Or do we have to go till game 7 to decide this once and for all?
