I used to. Belonged to all those record clubs (buy one, get 10,00 free). Well, maybe not 10,000, and not really free. But when my husband left, he took my records and my record player, among other things, so then later I bought cd’s. Now I have a bunch of cd’s I never play, because YouTube. You can find any music on YouTube.
So after moving to 3 mg Prednisone last Wednesday, I went through several days of pain, so much that I cancelled my homemaker yesterday and slept til 3:30 pm. Much better today. It takes a while for my body to adjust to the lower dose, and it is not fun during the process.
Went to Thanksgiving dinner at the restaurant with DD2 on Thursday. Fancy schmancy place in downtown Providence, not far from Atwell’s Avenue, with the pineapple.
Here’s what I wrote my friend Tess about it.
“Very nice place, attached to the Omni Hotel, across the street from The Providence Journal building. Very posh, very loud. Need some sound-proofing tiles or something. Dinner was good. Not spectacular, but very good. Turkey was so-so, more like processed turkey, but the veg were really good. Real mashed potatoes, cubed sweet potatoes cooked with something tasty and not completely covered with marshmallow stuff, and green beans perfectly cooked with onions, bacon and sliced toasted almonds. Kris took the leftovers home. Not the turkey, just the veg. Stuffing good, cranberry sauce had orange and cinnamon, very nice. We ordered both desserts and split them. The pumpkin cheesecake was nice, but not really cheesecakey, and the carrot cake was delicious and no nuts, which made Kris happy.
I have CDs for the car and to my kids’ disgust, I play the same ones over and over and sing along. But I’ve started collecting records. They’re so cheap and there’s some really weird stuff in the thrift shops. I have a record player and I’m going to put it in the visitor accommodation, with a little collection of weird and wonderful records. The dinner sounds lovely. Got to have a treat every now and then!
“…weird and wonderful records.” Love that.
“Treat yoself!” Parks and rec. 🙂
