Still regrouping here. Yesterday, we had much scheduled on the cleaning and catching up fronts. I managed to vacuum the house, change the bed, and wash the dishes before I thought maybe I should sit down for a minute. I therefore repaired to the blue chair, and the last thing I remember before waking up, two hours later, was Sprite trilling happily as she settled onto my lap.
Steve was in similar straits, though his nap was intentional, rather than impromptu.
We finished up the day by watching an episode of Columbo — my ghod, the 70s hair! And the smoking! And the cars! And the fact that $50grand was enough money to buy a ski instructor away from a wealthy girlfriend.
Not to mention Columbo’s consistent flaunting of the law. How does he just walk into people’s houses? Oh, well. Still a pleasure to watch Mr. Falk at work.
After such a trying day, we of course sought our beds early, and I slept well, deeply, and late. Today, the to-do list includes all the things I didn’t finish yesterday. And maybe another episode of Columbo, or, yanno, RED 2, or From Up on Poppy Hill, or Sleeping Beauty, all of which have been sitting on the Mencken table since before Yule, waiting for us to be ambitious enough to watch them.
Also, I still haven’t gotten out to see Into the Woods — have you? How did you like it?
Again, many thanks to the folks who have, and are, taking time to review Carousel Seas at the review site of their choice.
And that’s all I got.
How’s the new year shaping up so far for you?
