I would feel bad about that fact, were it not for the 30 plus years I spent as a single gal about town. I have lived on my own and done my own thing from the age of 19, so adapting to life with a companion is still a little new to me.
(Yes...I know that Stewey was my companion for eleven years, four months, and eight days of that...but he was pretty easy to accommodate as long as everything was exactly as he wanted it.)
(Oh, how I miss him so!)
Anywhoose...my alone time has really been quite wonderful. I finished up in the d-chair yesterday afternoon and decided to have Chinese food for dinner. Magoo doesn't care for Chinese food, so it is a rare treat for me to go face first into some General Tso's and veggie fried rice.
Which is exactly what I did after coming home, washing my face, and changing into my pajamas.
I sat on the couch with my Chinese food and watched Housewives, a little bit of the news, and then managed a little snooze right there in front of the Christmas lights. Then I woke up, had some fizzy water (to kill the heartburn from the Chinese food), and watched two movies...Breakfast at Tiffany's and The Way We Were.
After a really good sleep, I am in the Happy Chair with my damn good, the Saturday newspaper, and a pad of paper...planning my grocery list for later today.
(I finished the green outer border yesterday...only two more borders to go!)
My damn good is peppermint mocha!
I'm not normally a fan of flavored coffee, but I found a box of pods in the back of the pantry that I think I picked up at the Christmas Tree shop last year, and I decided to use them up. Delicious!
It's a bit gloomy here today, but I've got the crackpot spinster fireplace going:
What can I say? I'm totally a low maintenance gal, except when it comes to scents.
My menu has changed about ten times, but I think I finally have a winner. Today and tomorrow I'm going to have Philly cheesesteak sloppy joes because they'll be easy and I can make them with 95% lean ground beef. On Monday night I am going to make a seafood fettuccini with shrimp, scallops, spinach, and sun dried tomatoes. And on Tuesday there will be ham.
Lots and lots of ham.
My chair time will be 7am tomorrow morning...yikes! But, I am happy to haul myself out of the big girl sleigh bed early so that I can be done by 11 and the techs and nurses can get everybody through and then off to their families early. I think there will only be a few of us tomorrow because so many people travel or can't get transportation on Sundays...so I hope it will be easy peasy.
Well, Dearies...I suppose that's all I have to report today! I'm going to get myself dressed and over to the Martin's so I can get back here and stitch the day away. I hope your very own Saturday is perfectly swell and that you get to do whatever makes your skirt blow up and your heart sing! Come tell me all about it!
