Silver Liningness Sunday

Sunday... Snowy Sunday. Certainly better than bloody Sunday.

Yes, we have snow. Fluffy, pretty, fluffy snow. I know because I went outside this morning to get the newspaper. I searched around, to no avail, like a ski patroler seeking an avalanche victim. Then I came back inside and called the newspaper people. Their recording said, "we have snow" (paraphrasing).

It's been a lovely week. Everyone went back to work and school after our slothful Thanksgiving week. I, however, had the week off from teaching and got totally caught up on stuff that's gone by the wayside as of late... okay, maybe not "totally", but who is really ever totally caught up, I ask!

The pantry is pretty well stocked, the house is SEMI clean, we ate SEMI real dinners... Even the car is happy with a fresh lube and oil change. AAAaaaaaaaaahhhhh....

AND I spent time on one of my favorite hobbies - that of PURGING! No, not in a bulimic way or in a colonoscopic way, but in a get-rid-of-clutter way. I got rid of some old frump clothing, some no-longer-useful books, some worn out shoes, etc. I highly recommend it.

Magnum and I once again came out winners in the crapshoot of DVD watching. I selected The Lucky Ones purely on a whim because I was in a hurry and thought it had possibilities, although I had never ever never heard of it. It was REALLY good! Just one of those plotless movies that can really stay with you. Go see!


  1. That just looks cold. Some days I miss that weather...then some days not. I can tell you that I wouldn't be training for a Marathon in the spring if I lived there.

  2. Today was my "get rid of coats" day. I found one in particular from the late eighties or early nineties...huge shoulder pads and all. Great houndstooth coat, but it had to go.

  3. That really doesn't look like enough snow to prevent newspaper delivery!

    I had a purging day today. I braved the walk-in closet and I came out the winner. Lots of stuff is getting donated and lots of stuff just went to the trash barrel. Good feeling!

  4. I saw the high today in Winter Park was 2. TWO. NOT CELSIUS! Whaddupwidat? Please warm everything up for me before I get there in less than two weeks, k?thxbai.

  5. I usually love your movie picks. Added this one to my netflicks queue! I never know how to spell queue. I think that's right.
