A pork roast with onions, potatoes, garlic, and a few carrots to support the meat is cooking with a bit of fino (dry sherry) in my oven and making the house smell delicious. This week I've begun to catch up on blogs, make a bit of a dent in the laundry pile, worked, and haven't yet touched the clothes that came back with me from DC.
I know I have to clean out the closet and also make some selections from the DC clothes for contributions to St. Vinnie's. I have to because I just don't have the ever-expanding magic closet--I have a decent amount of space and just too darn many clothes. Fat clothes, not-so-fat clothes, play clothes, lots of work clothes, gardening clothes, hunting clothes, even a few dresses! I think know I'm putting it off because 1) time is limited and work does come first and 2) the selections are part of what I'll be for this next part of my life. You know..." the clothes make the woman" concept. I have a feeling I'll be working on the contents of my closet constantly for the next year. I want to peel off the skin I've worn and try on a new one.......or three.
Time for me to serve up that pork roast. It is nice to be home.
