A Random Friday
It’s been in the damps here. One of those damps which crusts over the sugar in the sugar bowl and feels sticky on the skin. It’s not just the rain, and the damps are different than the dumps. The damps are when everything you own, everything you touch, everything you are is sticky and moist and uncomfortable and leave you feeling miserable and the slightest change in a situation can render you completely at wits end, depressed and life’s-not-worth-living-shoot-me-now-ish. Know what I mean?
For some bizarre reason, one of the antique brass beds in the house has dyed green stripes on the white pillow covers.
I’m running out of time. That is to say the restoration company is running out of time to get the floor finished, get things painted and cleaned up and replace my furniture before I leave for England and don’t return for a good two months. This means I will not sign off on the project until I’m absolutely and completely sure that nothing has been missed, forgotten about or not done if promised. This means that my insurance agency will not release the last bulk of the funds till September when I get back. I’ve decided that none of this is my problem as I’m still sticking to the agreed on time schedule.
When I walked into the hall this morning and saw the sun shining on the guardian chair, my happiness factor increased exponentially. YAY SUN!
I really should be living in Arizona or Barcelona or Santorini or some other sunny situation instead of flitting between rain in Vancouver and rain in Oxford.
Linking with Nancy at A Rural Journal for the random five Friday. 🙂
