I had a nice weekend - worked on all kinds of my projects, catching up with things and 'organizing' and finishing off some stuff that I've had on hold. The pile is getting smaller (for the moment).
I visited my mother-in-law yesterday evening. We were having a nice quiet chat by ourselves until my sister-in-law came out of her room and turned the TV on. There was some stupid Arabic music program on. Like a talk show only with the host singing and guests who are 'singers' and with the audience full of really stupid looking Arab females who are singing along, dressed to show off as much cleavage as possible - most wearing coloured contact lenses and bleached blond hair. uuuugh! I hate those shows - so totally stupid.
My sister-in-law is one of these that are religious when the mood strikes her types. One minute she's spouting off about how music is haram, blah, blah, blah. The next minute she's watching music vidoes, singing and dancing. She does this just to be irritating. And this occasion was just that. She intentionally intruded on my mother-in-law and I, turned on the TV and started singing.
My mother-in-law and I decided to just ignor her and continue our conversation, but she just turned up the volume on the TV. After a while I asked her 'Can you turn the channel please?' She said 'Well, I was trying to liven up the mood. The two of you were looking so sullen.' I replied 'We were having a serious discussion. It's not always necessary to be laughing and joking.' After a while she got up and left, of course leaving the TV blasting too. My mother-in-law pulled the plug and we had peace again.
Another week awaits me.
This morning I got up and decided to take the cover off the chair in the entry and wash it. This means that for sure there will be visitors today. Happens everytime - take off the furniture covers to wash them and visitors will arrive.
I've discovered Pandora - a nice way to listen to music on the net. There's even a way to add favourites to your blog so I added it to my sidebar. Check out Pandora - I really like it!
Speaking of music . . . did anyone attend the Lionel Ritchie concert?
