If we were having coffee… I would be extra glad to see you! Not only do I enjoy sharing coffee but today I really need a break and now I have an excellent excuse! Sit down. Sit down. Tell me about your week. What have you been up to? What about your plans for the weekend? I am sure yours are much more exciting than mine!
Around here, the day has been dedicated to un-decorating. The tree, sadly, went out a few days ago. That’s my favorite decoration but unfortunately it was dropping needles like crazy and needed to go. Now all the rest of the house decoration are about to come down.
I find that each year at this time, when the clutter of the Holidays gets packed away, my purging instincts kick in. Unfortunately, I live in a house full of pack rats so uncluttering is always a battle. I offer exhibit “A”…
This could be a very useful space under my hutch. What it is is the repository for several years worth of old school paper that my two children can’t bear to part with. If you apply this mind set to every drawers, cabinet and closet in my house you can imagine my frustration! Well, for today I will just tackle the Christmas decorations. I have the rest of the winter to work on the rest.
If we were having coffee…I would tell you about the comedy show my Hubby and I went to see last night. It was a charity event held at our local theater and seemed like it would be a fun night.
There were four comedians on the bill. The first three were quite funny, the fourth, not so much. He was advertised as the headliner and was familiar to many people in the audience (at least I judged so by the round of applause he received) but we had never heard of the guy and personally I would have enjoyed the show more without him.
I don’t consider myself to be prudish or easily offended. I’ve even been known to laugh at a dirty jokes if they are clever and not offensive. This guy, though, was just raunchy. I didn’t find his material all that funny, just rude. Hubby felt more or less the same way, although he did laugh a few times. Maybe being a female made a difference. Anyway, the ticket money was for a good cause so I’m glad we went but, I would much rather go see Brian Regan again! He is clever and clean. You don’t find that too often in comedy these days.
If we were having coffee…I would probably “sigh” and tell you that I really should get back to work. Hubby is downstairs dismantling the train platform and I’m starting to feel a little guilty about sitting here drinking coffee. I don’t suppose you would be interesting in helping out?
