“One of the most glorious messes in the world is the mess created in the living room on Christmas day. Don’t clean it up too quickly.”
― Andy Rooney

I copied this from someone on facebook. I think I used it as a status update once. Still think it’s worth repeating. Pretty much like everything else I’ve said more than once but at least this one I actually remember having shared before.
We had our week late Easter dinner with eleven out of a possible 15 people present and accounted for. Today was a very successful day for surrounding myself with people who make me laugh. I think my brother is an inspiration to us all having been the latest one to fall down and get back up.
He also makes a wickedly good red wine! Although he confesses it doesn’t always turn out the way he expects it to. He was able to take a couple of empty bottles home tonight and I certainly didn’t see anyone dumping it down the sink.
Ever noticed how, when you’re having a REALLY good time, nobody remembers to take pictures? I’m playing Words with my oldest grandson so it’s not like I didn’t have my phone with me (except when I had to recharge it and eat and pour more wine.) I’d like to say I also helped with the clean up and the dishes but I won’t because I didn’t. The kitchen was way too crowded. And then people were going home and it was too late for photos AGAIN. I would make a pathetic historian.
Now it’s late and I’m tired and I think sleeping in is the next thing on the agenda. Only two days left before I head back home. Time flies.
