It is said by historians that the ancient celebration of the Sumerian goddess Ishtar was co-opted by Christianity to wean the pagans from their happy sex and fertility holiday. All I know is that I couldn’t do the weekly food shopping because the store was closed for Easter Sunday. Hmmm.
Still a chore-filled weekend, though. Mostly yardwork and car washing yesterday, with dusting, vacuuming, and laundry filling the Sunday. Pretty damn boring, truth be told.
