The neighbor down the street is having new cabinets installed this week and next. Everything in the kitchen remains in the same position--with a wider opening for one of the new fridges. I asked but don't remember her answering--"did you get a new sink". Have to wait and see. What I liked in the picture up top was the cabinet doors and pulls. Not the louvers. Murder to clean.
G has "updated" my computer (yet again).
Time and time again, I tell him this computer is mine. He should update his iPad to his hearts content and leave my stuff alone. But he has "conjoined" his with mine--who said he could? and I have to suffer all the "updates" he thinks he needs. Plus, he never mentions it until it's done. When this happens I often think I will just stop using the computer--because if I don't enjoy the way things LOOK, why bother???? What things look like is all I actually care about or enjoy.
Well, I do like things to open. But I have no use for "bells, whistles, games, videos etc."
I was hungry all day today. I was also cold and sopping wet most of the morning. I had to tie string around wet mums to gather their stems up into a tight head. They were flopping from the heavy rain overnight. By the time I finished my clothing was dripping. I thought about going home to change into dry clothes but we only have 4 people working. I had a dry tee shirt in my locker, I found someone's left behind dry hoodie in the Fish House and--the pants? Well, they dried by 2 pm. Dry-Ish.
Lesson re-learned. Extra set of clothing in the car. Plus rain boots. I must have taken them out of the car at some point.
My extra special customer service abilities had several customers saying "I'm really happy I stopped in here today". Papyrus repot for an art teacher doing an Egyptian theme. Orchid repot and care instructions. Terrarium instructions plus bonus excursion into the yard to find mosses. Explanation of the differences between the varieties of Hibiscus (indoor, perennial and shrub). Pruning of a temperamental Ficus tree while the owner talked to his banker. And I finished cutting back more of the perennials and scrubbed the front counters with Simple Green.
