relaxation, or why you should always have dirty dishes in the kitchen sink
posted by soe 9:53 pm

I had a relaxing weekend. As you might have guessed, I did not manage to accomplish everything on my to do list. Nor did I really plan to.

The tree came down. Laundry and dishes got washed. A couple packages got sent. Veggies and milk were bought. Muffins were baked. I wrote a thank you note (the the person I knew least well, so at least it was the most pressing one from a mannerly point of view).

I also had a Billy Joel ticket bought for me, went out to dinner twice, and purchased new drinking glasses. I tried on a skirt that didn’t quite fit that I hope to find at a different store.

And I discovered a cockroach floating dead in a frying pan in the sink. Thank goodness the pan full of water was there. Otherwise he would have been running around the house, hiding from the cats in boxes half filled with Christmas presents we need to send to Boston. And that’s just unpleasant to consider — for the me and for the intended recipient. As it was, the cockroach was dead and I still asked Rudi to deal with him.

But, for the most part, I just sat on the sofa and lounged. I slept late and wore my robe later. I knit. I read. I drank a lot of tea.

It was a good weekend.
