Home Early on Saturday Night

I was home by 8:15 p.m. tonight. The temperature was already dropping toward freezing, and it was getting foggy, so I wanted to be home before it got too bad. There have been a lot of accidents around here lately as people have forgotten to adjust their driving habits.

Now, at 11:15 p.m., the temperature in my area is 30F/-1C degrees, and it seems that will be the lowest as the fog rolls in. It is expected to warm up a little as the clouds and rain start to roll in for Tuesday.

I spent about three hours with the Meetup group. Dinner was good. I talked to a few people, but made my way to the kitchen to get the majority of the dishes washed. That way I do not have to interact too much, and can still feel like I am a part of the group.

I did not feel like playing any of the games tonight, but was able to have coffee and dessert and talk to one of the gals, Shari, who has become a friend.

I will be heading to bed shortly, but want to try to finish watching the final two episodes of the third season of Scandal, if I can keep my eyes open that long.

Sleep well and have a great Sunday!

Although it probably doesn't snow in your climate, I don't think I would enjoy it just like I wouldn't enjoy England's climate. It seems to damp and dreary with the clouds. I hope you have a great Sunday.

In your place, you look bad when it is already freezing. Unlike in a tropical country like the Philippines, we sweat all day long.

It has been clear, sunny, no clouds, and 40 degrees during the day for the last four or five days.

Sunday should be a bit warmer....

I have lived in the tropics.... Guam, Florida, and other such southern US states. I understand "sweat(ing) all day long." Yuck.

You still don't get as warm as San Francisco in the winter, do you?

Ha Ha, I find myself doing dishes a lot too!

It seems you enjoyed your time with the group. I am glad you have made a friend in Shari.

It still seems as though you were able to have some fun, regardless of not playing some of the games. Hope you stay warm. It's supposed to get colder tonight here.

It sounds as if you had a good time. Now, had I been there, I'd have been doing kitchen clean-up along with you!

Glad you finally got yourself in gear emoticon :smile: Sounds like a good evening and hoping you got a good nights sleep

We all have feelings like that once in awhile. I woke up to a very foggy Sunday morning and wet.

While not as cold as you, wer've been having a storm which is still going on this Sunday evening

We are now entering our coldest average two months in Seattle, and our average high is 46F and average low is 36F during December and January.

It was something I did as a kid, because I had to. It's something I do as an adult, when I am out at other people's places or at potlucks, because I want to. It keeps me from having to deal with conversations that I often find vapid. Now, if I have found someone in a new situation with whom conversation is fascinating and learned, someone else does the dishes. But that is rare in most social situations like this that I find myself .

I really didn't mean for this to sound arrogant, but I do understand that it might. emoticon :sad:

Thanks, DW. Shari is a lovely, open-hearted woman who gives so freely of that heart.

CoralLevang wrote on November 29, 2015, 12:19 PM

It should start warming up tonight, thank goodness. That comes with the cloud cover and rain. emoticon :smile:

There is so little room for all of us in the kitchen-- MegL , RuthCox , and me-- that we would all have to have an understanding. One of you could scrape all the plates and stack them, as well as putting the flatware in a pan with a bit of soapy water, before others just dump the plates in my sink. Let me stand at the sink to rinse and stack in the dishwasher. Another could clear any other serving dishes that were empty doing a quick clear with paper napkins so it didn't end up in the water I am washing some things by hand, as the dishwasher (now running) is too full to accommodate bigger items. These are the things that most of the people do not pay much attention to, and it's why, if I and a couple of others choose to be kitchen staff, they should not allow others in. ROFLMAO

So, while I am in my zone away from the others who don't pay attention, you are saving them from me getting after them and not being nice in my delivery. emoticon :winking:

Thanks, Eva. I got a few hours, but not rested quite enough. emoticon :winking: Maybe a nap is in order today.

It's a November through February thing for me. More than once in awhile. I get through it, but not easily. You'll see more of it, if I remain true to being honest in my writing, though I try to temper it with people. Writing you get to see my insides....when I am face-to-face or via phone, I do not show it.

CoralLevang wrote on November 29, 2015, 12:30 PM

Our weather and your weather are very similar. It's why I loved the UK in December.

RuthCox wrote on November 29, 2015, 12:33 PM

Your organizational skills in the kitchen sound good to me! I'll scrape, stack, and soak the dishes.

CoralLevang wrote on November 29, 2015, 12:48 PM

I guess that means that MegL is our kitchen police and will keep the fools out! LOL

MegL wrote on November 29, 2015, 1:26 PM

Unfortunately, I am probably pretty good at that! emoticon :grin:
