I love that question, “Do you have exciting plans this weekend?” “Why no, I don’t.” Unless you think cleaning out the equivalent of Dumbledorf’s (oops! Dumbledore’s) office is exciting.
My office looks very much like this, shy of the ladders and the nice frames on the paintings – not to mention every single book and item in my office needs dusting. For years, I have listed this as a priority for when I get around to housekeeping and for years, I’ve said, “Domani, domani, domani.” Domani arrived today and I’m alternating between climbing over piles and refusing to touch a piece of paper more than once – the sign of an organized person organizing, as it were. The kids who earn money taking everybody’s garbage out for us are going to make a fortune tomorrow.
Sometime tonight I’m going to make Spaghetti, with a green salad with Italian dressing, toasted sour dough with gobs of butter and maybe, just maybe I’ll bake a carrot cake with cream cheese frosting. Before y’all get excited, that last item is coming out of a Duncan Hines cake box and frosting can – scary though it is because it has an expiration date of 2014 – what does that do to your insides…? Who cares, it tastes good, not so?
See you on the flip side.
