Whiskey for my men, beer for my horses*
I’ve been watching a lot of television lately. In these winter months when I frequently come home after it’s already dark out, I all too often curl up on the couch in the den and stay there. So whether I’m watching a movie or binge-watching Fuller House, season two, on Netflix, which by the way is sensational,
I try to do something else at the same time so I won’t feel too bad about myself.
Here are some ideas for those of you who think you also spend too much time as winter couch potatoes:
Count all the change that has been piling up in bowls all over the house.
Finish one of those needlepoint projects you’ve started. If needlepoint is not your thing, any craft will do.
Indulge in beauty treatments. I mean, we all need remarkably radiant skin, right?
Any more ideas?
When I’ve had enough of watching the old boob tube, I go back to a book. Right now I’m re-reading The Thin Man by Dashiell Hammett, which is excellent.
Unfortunately, reading in the evening usually sends me straight to dreamland and then, before I know it, the alarm is going off and it is time to get up and go to work!
Well, thank goodness it is Friday again. Have a great weekend!
