PT came over today to teach me how she makes her roast. It was just one of those days. I ended up stuck in traffic and was a few minutes late and she had to leave before dinner because something came up with her daughter.
It was still a nice afternoon and the gravy she taught me to make was amazing! She uses an electric skillet when she makes her roast, so this was new for me. Once we had everything browned and simmering we sat down and watched Under The Tuscan Sun. There is just something about that movie. One turn in a different direction can dramatically change your life and there is something very appealing about that. Throw in a free trip to Italy and it becomes a perfect dream. Of course PT pointed out that I won’t even spend a night away at the lake because I would be leaving my mostly grown children alone…..it’s different now. I feel more relaxed in this house and it helps that my cousin lives next door. I am hopeful for many new adventures this year.
I have fallen into a writing slump over here. I had the computer out last night and was ready to blog when I realized that I had nothing to say. It’s quite sad if you think about it. I just couldn’t bore you another minute with my unpacking talk. So I turned off the computer and curled up on the couch with the girl as we watched the latest Hunger Games movie. I made it through the first half before I fell asleep, Friday nights are rough for me when it comes to staying up late.
Tonight the girl and I went back to the old house, I grabbed the mail since I won’t be able to stop out tomorrow. I don’t really need to with the mounds of cat food somebody is feeding the wildlife. I also paid the electric bill at the store across the street. The first thing the girl said was “I heard you moved” I guess the neighbor who is always yelling said that 15 trucks came to move me….there were three. They also said that I had a house full of stuff and didn’t even take the tractor. Please, these people are crazy, nosy and wrong. It’s sad that they have nothing better to talk about than me. I am grateful that they are never outside when I am there.
I work at the restaurant tomorrow, I have to be there at 9:45, and I am hoping that it is not a repeat of Thanksgiving. Don’t get me wrong I want to make the money but I don’t want to be there until 7. My aunt is having dinner at 5 and I am hoping to be there within that hour. Right now I better start paying attention to The Ghoul with Boris Karloff. The girl picked the movie tonight……Zia
