Shaker Style. This is what I would aim for if starting over- clean slate and all. Flat trim boards. No details on the cupboard doors. I'd even skip the rug. But I might need the little step thing to reach the top shelves. And then forget I'm on it and step off into the Emergency Room.......
Yes, It's raining here in Maine. Gray sky. Wet everywhere. As I walked out with my umbrella to get the Sunday Paper- I could hear the siren of a Police Car or Fire Engine..... off in the distance. Some trouble off to my right.
There is always someone worse off than you, yourself.....trust me on that.
I am deep into season four of Fringe recordings. Very confusing. I wonder how many viewers stuck with this series that long? But even strange Fringe episodes are better than the news. I need to return to my bedroom for socks. My ankles are cold. I am wearing the same outfit- sweater on top and pajamas pants. Past few days...this has been it..lost the will to get dressed. I take the sweater off when I climb into bed. And the pajama pants. Usually keep the socks. Cold feet. Cold hands. Always.
We are scraping the bottom of the barrel in the "food to eat" category. I made a miscalculation in last week's grocery list...for sure. Several of them. Last serving of chicken soup. No Chicken Parm dinners. No milk for my oatmeal.....there is a frozen ball of pizza dough....but not enough time for it to thaw out. I had no milk to loosen up my bowl of oatmeal. I have never run out of milk before today. I kept searching the fridge sure a carton would be hidden somewhere. Nope.
Personally- I still have meatloaf prepared meals. He will have to have soup two days in a row. That's how it will have to roll.
There is always Chinese Take Out as a Fall Back Position. But it's Raining. And it's Cold. So I am voting that he has soup. Tomorrow is another day. I can shop tomorrow.
What I really want to do- is find a pair of socks, put them on and then settle into the couch for a little nap. And if I can't sleep...then I will read a book. I still have a stack of them..... Stay dry....stay warm...
