Tu 8 May
7 am: Fiddle around in CR, straightening up…downstairs for MSQT…make tea. N gets up, shortly after 8 am (early for him)…there goes MSQT! TV goes on (of course); we kibitz…he finishes his breakfast and goes downstairs to his computer. I eat b’fast…grateful for the resumption of MSQT!
10:18 - Catch up on notes for WiTL Appreciate the quiet sounds in the room (and my ears - which long thought was “static electricity,” turns out to be tinnitus~ a mild case) … Thinking I'll use Pages for notes - I can C + V for blog posts, etc…guessing I’d best clear up my space and get ready; we're going to Lowe’s and Home Depot - fence hunting … Remind myself : take paper and plastic bags and books to car…and definitely take a walk this afternoon... 67 degrees @ 10:28 and sunny…
1 pm: Return home. Our trips to both home improvement stores futile - not really any inventory and definitely no inspiration...frustrating - as this saga with replacing the now fallen fence continues with no end in sight. I decide the time to take a walk is now!
2:16: Sitting outside @ Zeke’s; a lovely, sunny, low-to-no humidity day... Drinking a decaf caramel latte´ made with almond milk and reading my Monday new book purchase. NTS: next time I come to Zeke’s, bring my own coffee mug (I think the cups they use are too small). Brilliant Idea! I almost blurt out loud.
2:46 : I decide to take a different path home from Zeke’s: walked down Jackson St and met Jackson, a Westie?! And his owner…she invited me to attend the local garden club meeting; perhaps I will. Arrv’d home as N was leaving for his walk… drafted/published blog post and started LOAD - 8.
Later in the early evening, discussed with N the idea of installing a chain link fence... and use bushes/trees for privacy. We both thought that's the best solution and congratulated ourselves for our brilliant idea!
Finished my layout and watched TV. To bed shortly about 11:15 p. Loving those brilliant ideas!
