Don't Wanna

It's a long weekend. People don't want to read blogs all that much. Some people don't want to write posts all that much, either. So I'll do us both a favor.

Except I have to say that we decorated the house for Christmas yesterday (we always did it the day after Thanksgiving growing up and it's a tradition I'm keeping) and then sat down with some slush* (another Christmas tradition) and watched The General (a silent film from 1927 with Buster Keaton. We all loved it, and even Aaron sat through the whole thing pointing at the screen and saying "Uh oh!" and "Woah! Woah, whoah woah!" at all the right parts. He even laughed when we did,but only because we did). The General isn't a tradition, but maybe it will be from now on. Or maybe just any silent film. We're into Charlie Chaplin, too.

I hope you guys are all being at least a little lazy and not too productive. That's what it's all about. Food and laziness.
*I was going to link to a recipe for slush, but couldn't readily find it online. It's just the orange, pineapple and lemon juice and mashed bananas made into a syrup, frozen, and scraped into glasses with 7-up poured on top thing. This is another of my family traditions and we usually drink this with chips and dip. Mmmm, salty/fatty with refreshing and sweet. YUM.

Yum, and Yay for this time of year and family traditions.

I want slush now.

Yes, the blogosphere is slow this holiday weekend--but I find that today is the first time things are slow and quiet enough in my life to catch up a bit! So I got to catch up with you just now. :)

I'm off to continue my lazy travels through blogville!

I am being very lazy and unproductive this weekend, thank you. :).

Melissa said...

I LOVE that slush stuff. I've never made it, though. But it snowed last night and I'm more in the mood for hot chocolate than slush.

So you're telling me to be lazy and unproductive?

Twist my arm, twist my arm......

OK, I'll do it.

I've never seen the General. It sounds like one my kids would like though.

Have a great lazy day! (I just finished ironing 15 shirts, but I am going to be lazy starting right...NOW.)

I personally am dreading Monday which is always a big blog post day but will no doubt be even bigger this Monday. I love to read all your posts, really I do, but it just gets a little overwhelming on Monday. I love your new blog look!

Ooh, I like the festive red. :) I've never had slush, but it sounds tasty! And probably more appropriate than hot chocolate, considering my warm climate. I'm off to finish decorating the house with christmas stuff! Enjoy the laziness. :)

Traditions are so important, whether they are old ones or brand new ones. My kids really enjoy the predictability of our traditions too!

New blog looks very festive! I look forward to jumping right back on the blog wagon ASAP! Gotta get out of this holiday fog sooner or later, I guess.

Um. I consider myself a patron of the arts. I like lots of black and white films. Indie films. Art. Charlie Chaplin. But I just CAN'T get into Buster Keaton. Can not. My FIL had us watch one--eek, I believe it was The General--a couple Christmases ago and it was like getting a root canal.(whhhhhrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr...) Maybe it was because we had eaten too much turkey AND it was late, I don't know. Now that I know that both you and your kids liked it...I might try it again. But it kind of hurts my mouth to think about it.

I'm with you on the slush though. I had it at my wedding. But it was berries. And I have that recipe. I'll share it sometime, if you're interested.

I have a recipe for slush if you want it...

Moody said...

I've never watched a silent movie! I'm surprised that it kept your little guy's attention, but maybe I better check one out now and see what it's all about. And I agree it's all about food and laziness!

Love slush! And laziness is fun every once in a while...
