Anyway. For as much as I love pranks (and pranking Matt, in particular), I don't have anything planned for today. I find it a little cliche and predictable to play tricks on April Fools' Day. Come on. Everyone is on their guard! Practical jokes are way better on basically any day other than April 1. Like...this year, I found January 29 to be a particularly great day to play a prank. So that's my official pranking advice for you. Do it when the opportunity arises. Or when the Spirit moves you. Don't feel obligated to confine your creativity to one day a year.
Today I did something I've been wanting and meaning to do for a long time: bring produce from the garden to share at work!
Several folks here bring in veggies from their gardens when they have an abundance. That always makes me SO happy...I keep telling myself that when I have abundance, I'll share, too. But then I always forget, or eat it all myself. Oops. Anyway. The kale situation in our garden is definitely becoming an abundant situation, so I finally remembered to cut a bunch and bag it up to share!
I'm not going to measure up to this super awesome guy at my church, though. He's a farmer (like...with real animals and such. I call myself a farmer sometimes, but that's only because I'm a huge exaggerator with a few small gardens.) and a few weeks ago he brought a cooler full of grassfed, organic ground beef from his cattle (so...local, too, cause he lives in town!) and GAVE IT AWAY to all of us!!! Ummm...you want to talk about excitement?? Give a bunch of not-rich wannabe hippies a bunch of free locally grown grassfed beef. Watch the people go wild. Anyway. I don't think my kale will incite quite that kind of riot, but I'm still excited about it.
Today at work we start our next book study (which is the work terminology for 'mandatory book club'). That may not sound like fun, except when you take into account that we're reading a book that I'm SUPER excited about and would totally read on my own anyway!
I mean...if that quote on top of a pinkish ink blob thing doesn't inspire you, I don't know what will. There may be no hope for you.
On that note, have a delightful (April Fools') day!
