Post holiday slothfulness

This roomrater is a mixed bag and I’d give it MAYBE 5 out of 10. I think RR would like the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Faaaarrarms, and Explosives back there behind yer fav-o-rite blahgger’s head. And there’s some interesting art on the back wall: a moon-phase calendar (ruined by glare), somebody’s old (waaaaay pre-MAGA) camouflage hat, and an old painting of boots and a knapsack by one of the Sherman brothers. I can’t remember if it was Pete or Jim but they were lifelong friends of my old coot, all members of the Veteran Greenhorns in the yooperland in the 1930s. I don’t remember a time in my life when that painting wasn’t around and now I own it. Alas, there’s a whole bunch of clutter crapola back there. We have GOT to restart our flinging prodject.

This was our first facetime session yesterday, with three of my parents’ four granddaughters and their SOs. Good times. We squeezed in dinner before another facetime session, this time involving porterization. We [almost] always get porterized on Friday night, virtually since March 20, 2020. More good times until the GG curtailed it. The Porters are night owls, we are larks. Something like that. In the summer, we love to drive our motor bote up the upper St. Marys River from our cabin to their cabin at the crack of noon and blow a loud horn from out in the water. GOOD MORNING! 🐽

It was a fairly slothful day for most of us. I walked early but it was a shorter walk than usual because I didn’t drag myself outta the rack until 6:30 or so. At this time of year, I like to be home in time to sit by the front window and contemplate the world while it’s still dark. After that? Cleaned up the chitchen and some other minor chores and read.

Freakout of the day? Where is that other balaclava? “We” have three Smartwool balaclavas. *I* had ONE a few years ago and I was getting suited up early one frigid morning and couldn’t find it ANYWHERE! The GG was rattling around up north somewhere and HE HAD ABSCONDED WITH IT! I immediately ordered two more! So today? He sheepishly admitted he had LOST one in Ohio(!?!?!?!) And couldn’t find the other one. Oh yeah, oops, it’s in my North Country Trail “stuff”. So if you are having trouble keeping score here, we now have TWO Smartwool balaclavas. Until the other two that I IMMEDIATELY ordered from REI arrive.

As much as I hate MAGA, I kinda wish I could order a couple red balaclavas just for the GG. They come in black and gray and I prefer black but maybe if he had some RED ones, he wouldn’t keep stealing my black ones. Marriage is sooooo much fun 🐽

P.S. I chose well🧡

    I had my one black balaclava packed for New York and was ready for many cold weather walks. Sigh. Thanks again for that, by the way! My younger daughter used to take the fingernail clippers and not put them back. I kept re-buying and then finally hid a couple of pairs just for me.

    We prefer the safety of a northwest wind when sleeping in…

    Maybe you could put some big sequins on yours? Not on the face part, just on the top.
