Five Reasons I Can’t Post Today

Hello, just popping in to welcome everyone back from holidays and share these very good reasons why I can’t write a proper post for today.

#1: Downton Abby’s 4th season premiers tonight. I had to work all day brewing a pot of tea, putting on my corset, and convincing Oscar he would be a brilliant butler.

#2: One of my brothers made the mistake of requesting some knitted dish cloths from me. He had used the ones I made my Mom and realized how far superior they are (they really are awfully good for a good scrubba). I like knitting dish cloths because they are quick, easy, and I can design them any way I want. I also saw some in a beautiful, elegant boutique. They were the exact pattern and color I’ve used and were charging $7 each for them so I’m busy knitting some more up. I felt very superior about my dish cloths now. (I should send some to Downton Abby)

#3: I’ve put away all the Christmas decorations but now I begin the discovery process of all the things sitting out in plain sight but I just don’t see for some reason. The first time I thought I was done, I came in the front door and realized I had been walking right by a giant bough I’d hung on the wall. This thing is about three feet long and protrudes from the wall at least 12 inches but for some reason I just wasn’t seeing it. I’m sure there is something else obvious I’m missing.

Scarlet says this room is clear. I appreciate her help.

#4: Someone’s come into my house while I was gone and put dust all over everything. I think that was very rude. I had it all clean two weeks ago when I left for the holidays and now I have to go back and clean things once again. Once you clean something, it should stay clean. That should be the rule.

Someone has also scattered dog toys everywhere. Frankie and Oscar say they don’t know anything about it.

#5: Did you know Sherlock is coming back? If you haven’t seen it yet, get caught up now because they ended on a real cliff hanger, let us hang for a year while the stars went off and did little projects like Star Trek and Hobbit (fun fact that I didn’t realize? Martin Freeman, Watson, is Bilbo Baggins in the Hobbit but Benedict Cumberbatch, Sherlock, is Smaug! I didn’t know that!). Whatever. Now that they have gotten their senses back, they have started filming Sherlock again. I need to get ready for that.


So, you can see, I have a lot on my plate.

    I’m sure posting 10 reasons you couldn’t post would have taken less time. It is nice that the fur babies are such good helpers!
