Sea of Glass
At times, I'm tempted to collect any number of things, but it does make for some clutter, and my clean-up and organizing projects don't last long. A couple days ago, I actually sorted out the gloves, scarves, and hats in our living room closet. Big whoop. That was the organizing project of the week. Ha! More honestly, I should call it the semi-annual clutter sort-out.
But then, last night, we watched a documentary called The Queen of Versailles, a fascinating look into the lives of a filthy rich couple, and now I don't feel so cluttered. Whoa, check this out! The film makers started this project before the economic meltdown, so they got way more than they bargained for. This film would make for some interesting discussion, too.
And now, on with the rest of Sunday. We've actually got a paper to read! Yes, that's news. Ironically, the plight of the local newspaper has become news: as its circulation is dwindling, the company has decided to put out just three papers a week, a curiously bad decision. So, we're only getting the Sunday paper now. Oh, and look! Twice the puzzles. Unfortunately, though, they accidentally published one of the sudokus completely filled in. (No guesswork there!) How's this happen? No copy editors left? Such carelessness.
