12- My cat has informed me that tomorrow is also the feast day of St. Gertrude of Nivelles the Patron Saint of Cats. I am, therefore, required to spend tomorrow feeding him delectable dishes and catering to his every desire.
13- I just did that. This whole thing reminded me of the Purge, which gave me the great idea to... purge. So far, several big boxes ready to donate, lots of never worn, new-with-tags clothes and shoes. My closet looks amazing. Linen closet on deck. Kitchen in the hole.
14- after I take a shower.
Store shelves were emptied Sat night of anything resembling corned beef, cabbages,carrots so I’ll bake some chicken. Anything for the cause.
15- We are taking three boxers to the deserted beach. Then they will get baths. Then I will wash the towels and eat avocado toast. After that ? Sky is the limit
16- I saved half a loaf of Trader Joe's Irish soda bread in the freezer. And two bottles of Guinness Extra Stout. And a DVD of "The Quiet Man," so I'm good.
17- Dying the water in the bathtub green, before dropping in some toy boats. Then, marching from the fridge to the couch.
18- Homeschooling while working from home. New normal! My kid said something about hiding gold coins which is maybe something they would have done at school(?)
19- I'm seriously thinking about wearing my green wig, green tutu, shamrock glitter tattoos on my face to work. It was my costume for the Shamrock run that was canceled. I have to go to work to perform testing for the SARS-COV-2 virus so I might as well try to make it fun.
20-I have a bottle of Jameson's and a plan for loaded mashed potatoes and a loaded me.
Alone. Pants optional.
Crank up some Dropkick Murphys and Loreena McKennitt. Scream at the void. Lie on my kitchen floor in the dark and quote Yeats. Make a couch fort and sleep in it.
