Channeling Marie

Yesterday was a non-day.  What do I mean?  I mean it was like I was invisible.  I didn't do anything.  Well, I did a bunch of laundry but that is mindless.  I didn't do anything that required much energy or intellect at all.  I didn't feel well, my knees hurt, the weather was icky and my allergies were making their presence known so I sat and watched movies. 

I watched a lovely little anti-drug film made in 1936 by the title "Marahuana".  It was the most dismal thing I have ever seen.  Why did you watch it you ask?  Curiosity.  And you know how they say "curiosity killed the cat"?  Yes.  Yes, it does.

Then I watched "A Kiss Before Dying" with Robert Wagner and Joanne Woodward.  It was typical 50's fare with a nice little twist. 

Then I moved on to "Four Weddings and a Funeral" with the ever gorgeous Hugh Grant.  I had to turn it off though because my grandchildren arrived.  With their arrival we went on to finish "Moana" which I really hope to not have to watch again for awhile and when we were done there we started the 1951 version of "Alice in Wonderland". 

After the kids left we were on our own for pizza and more tv.  However, I continued reading on THE book.  It is not uncommon for me to think books start out slowly and then reach a point of not being put down but this was went on almost three quarters of the way before I could say it got interesting.  It is moving along at a better clip now and I am more than ready. 

So, today I have tackled the beast known as my closet.  The closet, well, my side of it, looks as though a little hurricane has gone through it.  So, I have decided to fix it.  Now the whole bedroom looks like a hurricane has gone through it.  I have a ton of blouses that I don't wear because they all have to be ironed -- a lot -- with lots of starch to even look like I have touched them.  Marie Kondo says to hold an item in your hand and see if it sparks joy.  Is she kidding?  These blouses don't spark joy! They are just wrinkled!  So, don't know what I am going to do about that -- probably donate.  And then shop.  Fun?  No.  I don't like shopping.

I have a chest in the closet that I am moving upstairs for craft storage.  I need the hanging room it is taking up.  I really prefer to hang things so Marie and I don't really agree on that.  I folded a bunch of stuff her way, once, and promptly forgot I had it.  However, once I opened the drawer I put it in it was like Christmas but, yeah, I have to be able to see my stuff.

So, that is what I am doing today.  Waiting for the warm up they said was coming today but they have now bumped it to Wednesday.  Oh well, it is January.

Guess I will go back to the closet.  Fun!
