Here is what I learned from a day spent cleaning my closet and drawers:
I do not need anymore black dresses.
I do not need anymore jersey dresses.
I especially do not need anymore black jersey dresses.
I also seem to have a proclivity for sheer dresses with slips underneath them.
However, it was fun to look at my stuff and remember why I bought it or where I wore it. Ah! The orange jersey dress! And the green one that students copied when they did a skit about me. And that blue halter dress...and the pink and black one that led Anne Meara to make a joke about me...
Still. Eight bags to Goodwill. And more than one time I wondered why the heck I bought those shoes or that really hideous dress. At least for now, everything is lined up so neatly, arranged by color and sleeve length with all my fancy clothes at one end. I do like this vintage cocktail dresses!
Started my day with Pilates and knitting (those socks are coming along, slowly!) and choosing fabric for the beat up dining room chairs we just got. Then, the cleaning. Yesterday I focused on the bathrooms. The day before on the bookshelves. It's spring! And there is something to be said for spring cleaning.
Last night's dinner of pork saltimboca with spinach and ziti and roasted peppers as sides was yummy. But tonight I get to eat at my favorite restaurant here, New Rivers. I earned this dinner today!
Three great events this week.
Tomorrow I will be at the North Kingstown Library at 6:30 PM.
Thursday, March 29, I will be the speaker at the Ladies High Tea at the fabulous Pot au Feu from 5-7PM.
And Friday I am one of many celebrity bartenders to celebrate Grub Street's new digs in Boston at 162 Boylston Street. My shift is from 8-9PM, but come early and get a drink from Richard Russo or Anita Shreve or Sue Miller or some of your other favorite writers!
