This is the “Enough disaster and complaints post”, (AKA My name’s not Alanis), lets talk roses instead.
Put your face into the flower for five seconds and inhale.
There. That’s better, isn’t it?
The roses are running amok. And why not? It’s their month; they own June. They work it.
It may look like bedlam to some, but to me, the free-for-all is what happens when roses are allowed to fulfill their destiny.
I have a particular love for yellow roses. There was a climbing yellow rose in every one of my grandfather’s gardens. They were his absolute favourite roses, and each time I see a golden climber my heart skips a beat.
Each year I play the How-many-new-roses-can-I-still-fit-into-the-garden game. Do you do that? It’s such a fine line between falling in love with a must-have rose and making sure there is enough space, sunlight, and optimal growing conditions for the rose to thrive.
My life would be diminished without roses, without my gardens where I can be with my roses.
I’m so lucky that my life is this wonderfully full.
And so, now that we have our mind straight and beautiful again, just a quick update on day four of the floor reno saga.
1. Things which were messed up are being un-messed as I write. (including: towels taken away to be laundered, new MAC brushes being ordered, new coat of paint on doors after sanding prior to re-install, door man coming to check integrity of the frames and hinges, dad’s medicine bag has been sent away for proper cleaning, zippered plastic doors being installed, the Levolor company to re-install and replace blinds if necessary, ducts have been vacuumed and are being protected…in short, everything is being fixed at reno company’s expense or else they are off the job.)
2. Big, BIG warning to work crews and various site foremen and job managers plus Project Manager, both from me and from my insurance agent or they are off this job too.
3. Big, BIG apology from everybody involved, new plan of attack plus itemized work list being submitted to me for approval.
4. I think we all understand each other now. 🙂
