I was sitting at my desk yesterday minding my own business (well, minding other people's business but since that is my job basically, it's ok) when the phone rang and a coworker told me that had an extra ticket to see A Christmas Carol at the Walnut St. Theater and would I like to go.  I asked when and she said they were leaving at 9:45.  I looked at my clock.  It was 9:35.  I looked at the 2 foot high pile of charts on my desk, all crying out for attention and said "of course I'd like to go". 

So, I did.  The Walnut St. Theater holds the record for the longest continually running theater in the English speaking world.  It's only a few blocks from where I work so we walked.  And since I have this lovely camera that I can carry in my purse, I have a photo.  My sock in progress and the stage.   Yes, people looked at me sideways when I pulled the sock out and took its photo but I like to show my knits a good time.

The play was a musical and it was well done.  It was only an hour long so it was a wonderful bit of holiday fun in the middle of a work day.  It was difficult to tackle that pile of charts after I got back but I managed to get everything done before our computer program decided to crash around 3 in the afternoon.  So, I'm ready to start the week on Monday.  Thankfully, since it's a full day of people to be seen.

Pk is working on his wips today and so am I.  I have laundry to do but not much else.  The shopping will wait until next weekend when we get paid.

Here's a few photos from life around here

Some people go all out with the lights. But mother puts on quite a show all her own.



And a little bit of Oregon here in New Jersey.  Look, Roxie.  You're a clementine!

Have a good Saturday.

Go monkey sock, baby, go! Seriously-- sometimes a little bit of goofing off (theatre!) does wonders for your productivity!

We were going to see a Christmas Carole, last Saturday - but I wasn't feeling well. So, I've promised Grilltech I'd make it up to him with A Taming of the Shrew.
