Goliath

Daily PromptRelish

relish

Simple Definition of relish

  • : enjoyment of or delight in something

  • : a feeling of liking something

I seldom watch television unless I have some hand work that makes it worth my while to sit still; i.e., binding a quilt, crocheting an afghan, stitching applique or stuffing a pillow or doll.  Or, if I’m lying on the couch because I’m ill and feeling sorry for myself.

Therefore, I relish binging on a good TV series.  I don’t understand why I prefer a television series vs movies, maybe because I can stop after each episode and get up to do something exciting – laundry, dishes, floors, groceries, dusting; stuff like that.

Some of my favorites?  Midsomer Murders, Ripper Street, Luther, Downton Abbey (of course), Happy Valley, Transparent, Viking, Reign, Longmire and now (drum roll, please) – Goliath with Billy Bob Thornton.

I’m making fabric dolls for my year old granddaughter for Christmas so I watched three episodes of Goliath the first night, three episodes last night and have timed it perfectly leaving two episodes and the final seam on the doll to coincide tonight.  Maybe I’ll even have a hotdog and chips while I watch the show and try not to drip any relish on the couch.

Musings of a Muse

The Daily Post:  “Muse”

While trying on bathing suits in a dressing room with a three-way mirror, I discovered that in a previous incarnation I must have been Reuben’s muse.  The 16th century artist apparently loved chubby women.  Hence, the term “Reubenesque”.  My kinda guy.

My Favorite Profundities

Daily Post:  “Profound”

 

  • Tranquilizers work only if you follow the advice on the bottle – keep away from children.

  • If life gives you lemons, make lemonade.  Then go out and find the person whose life gave them vodka.

  • We spend the first twelve months of our children’s lives teaching them to walk and talk and the next twelve telling them to sit down and shut up.

  • Having a baby can be a scream.

  • If your children write their names in the dust on your furniture, don’t let them put the year.

  • The most common craving of pregnant women is not to be pregnant.

  • If your husband wants to lick the beaters on the mixer, shut them off before you give them to him

  • If two people want to get married, get married! As long as it doesn’t scare the horses, do what you want.

  • Never floss with a stranger.

  • If you laugh at it, you can deal with it.

Quotes from Phyllis Diller and Joan Rivers; my favorite philosophers.
