It is grey and drippy outside...so very gloomy and yet I have not started packing for Florida. My house is a mess--everything from the kitchen sitting on and around the dining table. However! The kitchen is painted. The bathroom is painted. The cabinets are stained and covered with one coat of polyurethane. I will let that dry for a couple of days. I think I will actually complete my ambitious plan.
Then it will be turning my attention to some Christmas shopping and baking. Yesterday was a break day, or brake day as the case may be. I went to the annual Christmas lunch and gathering of the card making group. It was a festive time and fun, but I did miss my friend Ginnie. (There were a few of those moments when a good kick under the table was in order, Gin! Maybe it is just as well. My legs are already black and blue from clutzing around with the ladder.)
I am hoping that the rain does not start to freeze so I can pick the grand kids up after school today and have them here for the weekend. I guess I will have to clean up enough in the kitchen that we can maybe do some candy making or baking.
They are probably going to be distressed that I scaled back to basic cable and all the children's channels they watch are not on the plan. I'll call it character building.
I watched The Sound of Music last night. I would have much preferred to see it in a theater. I have little tolerance for commercial interruptions. I don't have DVR service which is one thing I would really use. Even On-Demand has commercials that cannot be fast forwarded now.
I realized I always thought Carrie Underwood and Kelley Clarkson were the same person. So I enjoyed the play and learned something as well.
