Let’s play.

.

Admit it, you’ve got nothing else to do.

.

.

As a voracious reader, this is an easy one for me…

Books!

.

.

In our house there are numerous stacks (and bags and crates and shelves and closets and boxes, well you get the idea) filled with books and I have never… not once in my life, ever thought I had enough.

.

.

So how about you?

What can’t you stop buying…

.

Let’s play.

.

It may be a new year, but some things aren’t changing.

.

.

The answers on Facebook were way funnier than what I came up with so here you go…

.

.

Alaska shrinkage is most assuredly a thing.

.

.

And that’s the type of wood you definitely don’t want to chop.

.

.

Ouch!!!

.

.

Thankful to be a woman for this one.

.

.

There’s casual… and then there’s casual.

.

.

Alcohol. It says everything is a good idea.

.

Happy birthday to me.

.

Yes, I took another trip around the sun this month. Nothing to celebrate at this point in my life, but I woke up to a (not so) subtle gift reminder all the same.

.

.

The large box was a present from my husband, from my very favorite store. They sell high quality handmade jewelry, pottery, art, crafts etc. and every trip we take there includes a round of oohing and ahhing . I rarely buy anything for myself as the prices make me swoon, but the husband makes a yearly pilgrimage… and who am I to complain? 😉

.

.

This year’s gift was a fabulous mesquite wood lamp with hazed copper cut out shade.

.

.

Both sides are inlaid with turquoise veins and it really is a lovely piece.

(If you’re wondering just how lovely? Here’s a similar lamp from the same company with much less turquoise on their website.)

.

.

Yeah. That lovely.

😳

.

.

Needless to say I love it, and shall enjoy its light for many years to come.

The original birthday plan was to hit my favorite restaurant for dinner, but Mother Nature said no by melting the snow and dropping a solid afternoon’s worth of sleet and ice.

Alternate plan?

.

.

Pizza and beer in the man cave…

.

.

With a stellar game of whip your husband’s ass with a double letter Q in ‘quay’, a triple score ‘quiz’ and an almost superfluous ‘zeal’ for a total of 102 points Scrabble.

A very happy birthday indeed.

🤣

.

Let’s play.

.

Yes, we’re still doing these.

.

.

The easy answer is dust bunnies, but let’s actually take a look. I’ve been known to use the space under our bed for storage so there’s no telling what we’ll find.

.

.

As of today, there are two things. A box of extra dishes….

Because #1 – you can never have too many dishes. And #2 – when the current pattern you’re using hits the sale rack, you stock up.

.

.

The other item crammed under our bed is a turntable used to convert vinyl into MP3 files. The husband bought it for my birthday a while back because I have a massive album collection. He also bought me the iPod that holds 35,000 plus songs…. so I spent countless hours ( read days, weeks, months ) playing and converting the obscure music of my youth.

Moon Martin? Check!

.

.

The Flying Burrito Bothers? Sure.

And man, did I love me some Del Fuegos.

.

.

So fess up, what’s under your bed?
