“My weak spot is laziness. Oh, I have a lot of weak spots: cookies, croissants.”

Last night, or rather early this morning, at near three, I told my upstairs Alexa to wake me up at ten. When she did, I told her thanks then I turned over and went back to sleep until noon, again. I find I hit my stride around two am. I’ve started The Inn, another book by Patterson and his co-author, the name in the small print.

It rained last night then it stopped for a while, but it’s raining again. The day is quite still. The clouds are not so dark, more of a light grey. It’s a warm day. I need cat food which may necessitate my going out or my ordering groceries to be delivered. I’m thinking delivered as I have much to do today. The counter in the kitchen is the holding spot for decorations before they get boxed and brought downstairs. I’m stripping the Christmas out of rooms one room at time. The living room and the trees will be last, probably tomorrow.

I have to fill the bird feeders. The seed is sitting in bags on the kitchen floor. Now if I just bring down my laundry, there will also be bags leaning on the cellar door. All the bags are testaments to my laziness.

The sleeves of my sweatshirt are now dust covered. Every time I get up, I bring something to the kitchen, and I dust where Christmas used to be. I use my sleeves.

Henry was out a long time last night. I didn’t know he had gone out so I didn’t look for him at the back door. I should have known he was out when I ate some jelly beans and the wrapper made noise but Henry didn’t appear. He was really happy when I let him in and gave him a cookie, one with frosting, a gift from my sister. I think Henry forgave me. A cookie does wonders. I would forgive anything for an Oreo, double stuffed.

    We actually had sunshine both yesterday and the entire day today ๐Ÿ™‚ We’ll be back to cloudy tomorrow again.

    I just watched the film “The Death of Stalin” and it is a really good film! Sometimes hilarious but atthe same time since we know the history rather horrible to watch. I do recommend it if You haven’t seen it and all the actors were excellent!

    I have forgotten that I have had dogs outside the whole night twice ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ Thankfully in summer time. First it was old Orvar who never made a sound but instead leaned towards the door hoping I would notice it and the second time it was Sune who just sat quietly waiting for me to remember ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

    Have a great day!

    Christer.

      Christer,
      I haven’t seen the sun in a few days, maybe even as many as four. It rained on and off all day today. I’m glad it isn’t cold though I did buy deicer for the steps to the yard.

      I haven’t seen the movie. Thanks for the recommendation.

      Henry usually sits quietly outside, but if the weather is awful, he’ll keep whacking the dog door cover, the one he won’t use to come into the house, silly dog.

      Have a great Sunday!

    My Christmas tree comes down tomorrow. I’m already mourning the loss.
    What if there’s no such thing as laziness? What is the best use of our time? And who gets to decide?
    Love you, cousin.

      Lisa,
      Tomorrow will also be a day of mourning for me.

      If I decide that doing nothing is the best use of my time on any given day, then I am doing my best by doing nothing. The answer to your question is there is no such thing as laziness. There is resting best.

      Love you too, cousin!

    Hi Kat,

    Today I took my daughter to see the movie โ€œLittle Womanโ€. I have never read the book nor has my daughter. Although, a little slow in places it was overall very good.

    In the morning Iโ€™m headed to the refrigerator of the Continental US, Minneapolis for the week. No wonder so many folks of Norwegian descendants live there. Itโ€™s going to be cold and it gets dark early at about 4:45 PM. Luckily, I will have a rental car hopefully with heated seats. I have my leather bomber jacket, scarf, gloves and stocking cap. I should be just fine.

    Today was sunny with a high temperature in the low 60s.

      Hi Bob,
      Sorry for the delay in answering, but I somehow missed this.

      I got the book for Christmas when I was 10. It was my favorite book for the longest time. I remember reading it on the school bus. Jo was my role model. This film got good reviews. I do want to see it as well. I’m glad you liked it.

      It kept raining on and off all day.

      • Bob Cohen Says:

        No problem. You will probably have an easier time following the story line. It took me awhile to sort out the sisters. Beautifully shot, great cast and I enjoyed it.

      • katry Says:

        I have seen the other Little Women movies so I’m looking forward to this one.

        I have read all the sequels including Little Men, the next in the series. It concentrates mostly on Jo and her school. I think there were two more books after that one.

        I’m glad you enjoyed it.

    There is a German saying for bad rainy weather, it’s ‘A weather you wouldn’t kick a dog out of the door’ or simply ‘dog weather’.
    Speaking of laziness, I had popcorn for dinner.

    • katry Says:

      Birgit,
      But did you pop the corn? or did you buy popped corn?

      I like dog weather. We do say weather not fit for man or beast. Usually that’s a gigantic storm of rain or snow.

      • Birgit Says:

        I popped the corn. I wouldn’t even know where to buy popped corn which would probably be sugared what I don’t like. Popcorn is mainly fair and cinema food here. I was glad to find the corn at our nearby Syrian market and it’s from Turkey.

      • katry Says:

        So it was a day with some industry: popping the corn. You can get many varieties of popped corn here and not all of it is sugared. I’m partial to cheesy popcorn.
