Tu-ist (The Friday List on Tuesday)

I have a list for Y’All today. It’s always a good way to gather up all the flotsam and jetsam that gathers in my brain.

Do you remember Flotsam and Jetsam?

Ursula’s minions from The Little Mermaid. Sneaky little eels. Anyone with children the ages of ours will remember them. The Ab-Cat, in particular, was very strong in Little Mermaid trivia. Right down to combing her hair with her fork.

It rained ALL last week, and snowed on Sunday. Imagine our surprise when it was 70 and sunny yesterday!!! It was GLORIOUS!!!

Imagine my deep despair that it is pouring out there right now. It will probably cause the cancellation of walking with Keelyody this morning. I will know in about 20 minutes.

I need to walk.

I have made great progress in the DVR watching of Downton Abbey season 3. I have the grand finale episode to watch. The Ab-Cat is breathing a sigh of relief at the 63% on the DVR. A plethora of room to be sure. We have been bumping into the 90th percentile for a long while.

We still have the entire final season of Fringe to watch. We need to plan a marathon soon.

It’s still pouring.

Mother Nature, why you tease us like that?

I have had this annoying thing going on in the center of my back since we returned from Florida. The chiropractor has been trying to eradicate it but has now succeeded in moving it from the center of my spine to the left of the spine, in the dreaded chicken wing area. I wonder if being stretched on a rack might help? I am willing to try.

I am in the process of getting things together to donate to our church rummage sale. There are quite possibly not enough hours in the day to accomplish this task.

I donated an old butter dish in the shape of a cat that had colors that did not match our decor. It had a handle that was a mouse and it was hard to grasp. Plus I needed a little space in the cupboard where I store the butter dishes we already have.

But I then bought a new butter dish at Homegoods in a loverly off white color. It matches our decor and has the kind of handle I like. Handles are important to me.


And once again, we have one too many butter dishes in the cupboard.

I used to buy a butter dish every year when I went on my annual Memorial Day visit to Mrs. Schmenkmans in Virginia. My family used to be very hard on our butter dishes and believe it or not, there were times when we did not even have TWO butter dishes!

I guess my family has become kinder and gentler, we no longer break butter dishes at an alarming rate.

And therein lies the cause of my butter dish overflow.

I needed to go to the post office yesterday to mail something. When I arrived, I changed my mind. Everyone and their brother was up there doing tax related things. I can wait, REALLY.

It then occurred to me that this was The Boy’s fate. I knew from the several phone calls we had already had that day that he was in the same tax related, post office visiting boat.

Due to inclement weather, walking has been cancelled.

Inclement weather reminds me of the song With A Little Luck by Paul McCartney and Wings. Very popular in my sophomore year of high school.

Have I ever mentioned that I was a raging Beatlemaniac in high school? Yeah, me and Suzanne Suzanna Danna. Raging.

Her favorite was John, mine was George. I was so devoted that I gave birth to The Ab-Cat on his birthday, February 25. I know, total fluke.

I believe this is enough random for any one person before 8:00 in the morning.

Have a fine day.

    It’s funny that you say you have too many butter dishes — because I don’t have any!!! There is a mega Home Goods near me in a strip mall with TJ Maxx, Burlington, Shoe Carnival, H&G and Value City Furniture. Of course parking is a huge issue! 🙂

    Well, yes, a little random, but fun! My parents always had a plastic tupperware butter dish…it was great but every so often, my mom would lay a hot pan too close or something and it would melt. We had many deformed butter dishes…
