I have been a bit AWOL here haven't I?
Put it down to the dark days of winter. Now that the days are getting longer thank God, perhaps I will wake up. However, I make no promises. I hate to break promises.
I'll tell you what comes of too much indoor time in the dark. I got Amazon madness this morning and ordered two books and an accessory kit for my Zune. My son gave me his old one as he bought an HD version [that is uber cool by the way] anyhoo, I found this accessory stuff for cheap, I guess because I have the older, not so uber cool version and they have a lot of them on hand. Sometimes it is GOOD to be a few steps behind the Ubercool Vortex ya know?
(Enough with the ubers Cupcake, you are giving me a headache.)
Ah, but is it an UBER headache? That's the question…
(It is now.)
Allrightythen. My work here is done.
Well, not quite. I have decided that today is going to be a computer free day… well as soon as I finish typing this. I just need to get away from the ongoing train wreck of the news and go read a book or two and knit and cook and maybe if the Housecleaning Fairy shows up, do a little cleaning. I have been taking care of cats all over the place. The ones 12 miles away, and the ones down the street. So I have to go out in the car every day. This is not my favorite thing, getting in the car every day, so it throws me off my stride here at home. I figure I can narrow down the distractions by turning this thing off. [Sorry about the Scrabble game Mamallama] but a girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do sometimes.
Another thing needs doing too. Our fruitless pear tree that has been hanging onto its leaves for dear life, suddenly dropped every last one of them overnight. I kid you not. The last 1/4 of the leaves were on the tree in the evening, and then BAM, next morning they were on the ground. It reminded me of the Peanuts cartoons when the fall tree would do that to Charlie Brown. Anyway, I want to rake them up before it rains on them. But OH! it is bitter cold out there and clear as a bell. I even saw the mountains to the west of here. I hardly EVER see them for the haze in the air. I'll have to bundle up for the job.
Okay, somebody pull the plug.
(Oh, I would be SO very happy to do that for you Cupcake.)
Who turned out the lights?
I was putting sprinkles on my cookies.
I can't see my cookies!
Of all the incosiderate ninnys.
We can't work in the dark!
(Let's go shopping!)
Whose credit card?
(Ah, what the heck, mine.)
I'll get my pocketbook.
I hear there's a sale on feather boas at Macy's. I want to get there before all the red ones are sold out.
(Well, let's get crackin' then.)
What did you say?
(Never mind. Might as well bring the squirt. She can't bake cookies now anyway.)
Can we get a Cinnabon?
(Sure kid, sure. Get your coat, it's cold as he…– the dickens.)
