1. Boiled a dozen eggs.

2. Took kitchen compost to the communal bin.

3. Attended Easter service at church, since it's an inter-generational celebration and I therefore had no youth group to facilitate.

4. Withdrew cash, half of which will go toward the Not the IRS office 'we survived tax season!!!' dinner this coming Thursday.

5. TOOK A NAP.

6. Changed linens.

7. Paid all my monthly bills: rent, health insurance, and both credit cards.

8. Un-potted my narcissus bulbs, which I will try to get replanted outside in the coming weeks. I then washed their saucers and the rocks I use to reduce water loss through the terracotta pots' drainage holes. I will wash the pots themselves later this week.

9. Punched holes in the four plastic storage tubs I am using as squash planters. This is pretty simple: all you need is a hammer and some kind of metal tool with a reasonably small point, e.g., a screwdriver. (Note: I did not actually use a screwdriver, because I have an unidentified metal doohickey I keep around specifically for when I need a punch-tool, but I think the point holds.) Anyway, you hold your punch-tool in an open flame for ten or fifteen seconds -- I used my stove burner, but I bet a candle flame would also work if you increased the heating time -- then set it onto the plastic and hit it a few times with the hammer until it punches through.

10. Transplanted four squash seedlings to their new homes, as gently as I could. (I used two large bags of potting soil, plus the old dirt from the narcissus pots, because why not.) Time will tell whether I managed to do this without irreparably damaging their roots... and if I didn't, well, I can always plant new seeds directly into the plastic tubs and try again. *wry*

11. Made my weekly Facebook update post.

12. Suffered my first allergy attack of the year, blargh. Spring is lovely and all, but I could really do without the pollen... *hoards eyedrops and Benadryl*
