My favourite author, Emily Carr wrote a book called, The House of All Sorts telling about her time of owning a boarding house in the early 1900’s. It makes me think of this post about being about all sorts of things. It also reminds me that I should reread her book but I am not kidding, I keep buying books and can’t begin to read all of them. I used to have a stack stacks on my nightstand and more on my dresser. Finally I just decided to bring a small bookcase into my bedroom. Last week I decided to do a cull. There is no better word for it because my books are friends and it feels just like a cull. Anyway, I ended up sitting in front of my bookcases for a couple hours, got rid of one small box but not really because it’s still sitting there and brought at least a dozen upstairs to read again.
The weather here has been cool and so dry. It’s a little scary when it gets this dry so early on. Today I planted some marigolds and petunias. There were some leftover that wouldn’t fit so I will plant those tomorrow. This year I am going to save the marigold seeds and see if I can grow my own next year. The problem here is always lack of sun so will see how that goes.
Today I went to buy some new curtains for the downstairs bedroom. It ended up taking hours. First I went to Jysk but didn’t like anything they had. Then I tried Overstock.com but it was all Overpriced. Then I tired Walmart and it was all crap. The website shows you the same items over and over again and it’s all ugly garbage. I also tried Lowe’s and a few different places until finally finding something at IKEA. I have never bought a thing at IKEA, autocorrect is capitalizing IKEA, in my life. I don’t exactly hate what I bought but I don’t love them either. They are going to be 8 feet long. That pisses me off because I only need them to be about 4. Now when they arrive I have to cut them and get out my sewing machine and buy thread and get a proper needle and set up the machine and a whole fucking tadoo. It will end up making me so mad, I just know it. I just want to buy curtains that are already the right length and be done with it.
I think I mentioned in another post that I’m going to the Unity church. And Tai Chi. I’m enjoying both. The Unity church has a group that studies A Course in Miracles and it’s freaking me out. Does anyone know about ACIM? Tell me about it, please because something is not sitting right with me.
Norbert is freaking out right now because there is some paper on the ground. I tried to take a picture but he ran away.
The hospital trauma helicopter is going over my house right now. That means someone isn’t having a good day.
The last few months have been brutal for my depression. I tried a new med that didn’t do a thing except made me gain 10 pounds so I am on a different one now, Effexor. It seems to help so I am cautiously optimistic.
