What a great Saturday!
I have spent so many Saturdays this year icing cake and meeting deadlines, with days of work preparing for Saturday, that to have a leasurely Saturday spent doing nothing more important than laundry and housecleaning is surprisingly enjoyable. Many similar Saturdays in by-gone years would have been considering dull and mundane so it shows that the enjoyment of life is in the perspective.
Today my boys were off with their father, working on projects and an outdoor To Do list. That left me alone in the house while the snow fell softly outside. While I did many loads of laundry (you know, that kind of dirty stuff that waits and waits to be done while other more important things get washed) and lots of housecleaning to prepare for the arrival of my grandsons (in less than two weeks!), I was also entertained by (count 'em) two movies- Eat, Pray, Love (that was surely the last time I'll spend effort on that movie) and Sleepless in Seattle (which I'm sure I'll watch again someday. I never get tired of hearing great dialogue- "He's eight..." "He's good at it." RIP Norah Ephron)
After a supper of soup (for which I used leftover smoked turkey) the boys decided they wanted to go roller skating at the elementary school (doncha love small towns?) so I'm alone again for the evening.
Time to catch up on some Downton Abbey!
I love winter so much more than I ever did before!
Happy weekend, everyone!
