It is overcast today. I have the ceiling fan on in the dining area and can hear the tinkling of the chimes, a sound I never tire of. However it’s getting a bit cool in here so I think next time I get up I’ll turn the fan off.
This is the time of the year where you might start out the day in leggings or pants and end up in shorts and a tee shirt.
Ivy is laying on the table next to my chair begging me to pet her. Which I reach over and do every little bit and then a flurry of her fur goes flying over my laptop.
Whereas just a few months ago I could wake up, have breakfast, and head out to Tuesday Morning or Homegoods to stroll the aisles, now that is impossible. Out of the question. I do worry about those people who worked there.
Especially at Tuesday Morning. As they seemed to be older workers probably supplementing their social security.
A man who worked there always looked quite dapper. I never saw him without his bow tie. He looked like someone straight out of an English movie of another era.
I could just see him on a dance floor at a grand party, twirling his lady love around as they danced.
Here is Charlie looking up at me this morning while out on the patio. His eyes are so sweet. Little Mr. Bright Eyes.
Yesterday I brought my little rolling garden cart in and sat on it to clean the bath tub. I would never have been able to manage it standing up.
Now it looks much better so I feel content when I go in there and know I’m no longer faced with a task I’ve been putting off.
I’m thinking about ordering some bedding plants from the nursery I go to. They are online and doing deliveries now. I know I would feel happier seeing pretty blooms outside my patio door.
I look forward to sitting outside (barring anyone with their radio turned way up) and watching the birds and enjoying my little rectangular piece of heaven behind my apartment.
