So, this has been an awfully nutty week for me, complete with workmen washing my house facade with acid — yes, acid — and a flood that resulted in Mr. H and I ripping up wet wall-to-wall carpet and having other workmen basically tear out a bunch of ceiling and wall matter and then setting up NINE fans and dehumidifiers to dry it all out.
It was clear to us both that the logical thing to do was get ourselves to the beach last night, which we did. And then we woke up to this:
Lovely weather, right? Just the kind of day where you should be lunching at your favorite outdoor spot and taking your ungrateful terriers for a nice, long walk. Except that we are behind and need to work. So, instead of blue skies today, I get to spend the day pounding away on my keyboard:
I could be glum, but am trying not to be. I am out of the city and there is no reason why I shouldn’t enjoy the general pleasantness as much as I can. So, before I plopped myself in front of the computer, I ran outside and cut some flowers…some wild, some not…
And every time I look up from my work, I can enjoy a little bit of what is waiting for me outside when I am done. If I am ever done.
