Quiet Sunday

I'm in kind of cranky mode but not outrageously so because usually it paralyzes me in brain and body.

Snow is still with us although the sun is actually out today. The temperature is still in single digits. I skipped Mass today -- my body doesn't tolerate such temperatures well. I think God knows that and will forgive me. This weekend was a disappointment but I managed to get some things done and when I'm done here it's back to work.

I didn't go to the symphony last evening because I didn't feel well and still don't. However, in case y'all didn't notice, I did get around and visit y'all and hope to stay caught up. It takes 3-4 hours for me to get through my list.

I also got a few things done on my ever-present "Gottado Lists" and I think that I might actually cook a decent meal meal today. I have some fresh spinach tortellini and the ingredients for al fredo sauce with mushrooms -- a serious yum. I'll probably wind up eating it for the rest of the week. I will never get used to cooking for one.

I watched some old movies (Bogart!) as I worked on yet another needlepoint project but I haven't mustered the courage yet to get out my new art supplies and play with them. I suspect that will come after I get caught up with my chores a bit more. (Yes, Diane, I watched the videos you suggested and I learned a lot and you will see my efforts first! Rain: You're next)

The River Stones Project ends on the 31st but I kind of like it so I might keep it around on a sporadic basis. It's been interesting and thought-provoking.

One of my challenges for the new year is to get all my closets and shelves organized properly and find the right containers in which to store them. I found some excellent organizers for my jewelry was amazed at all I have acquired and that I need more of them. I also found some excellent organizers for my dresser drawers at the dollar store, Yeah, I'm a sucker things that help keep things neater. I can't wait for the organizer for Miss Ruby's trunk that I bought on eBay to arrive.

Someone just knocked on my door so I had best close here.

Hope y'all are having a great day!!!



  1. I am sorry to read that you are not altogether on top of the world. There re days when was just can't be bothered to fight against whatever is wrong.
    I know such days well.

    Tidying is a good way to one's mind off things, it keeps you busy in a sort of non-thinking way.

    Hope things will brighten up soon.

  2. Well, Sundays are my toughest day and I really have to work at notting down about lots of things cause I think, think, think! Thanks for stopping by. It definitely is nice to see some visits.

  3. I love organizing. I wish I were there to help you. :-) ... Well, except for the cold weather...

    I think it's amazing that you're able to keep up with 200 + blogs! I have a hard time keeping up with a quarter of that.

  4. Willy appreciates your visit. Hope you get to feeling better.

    10-4 Willy
