So what do I want to share with you today?? My dear dear high school friend, Jeanine, came to town on Sunday. It was a very short and really wonderful visit!
She told me I need to keep blogging.
And while I don't really feel like I have anything to say, I'm gonna dig in and try.
Let's start with aging and death.
I feel old and think I am old.
Yet, a few weeks ago, my friend in France, Corey, shared a story about her mother in law in Normandy. Said mother in law is 92. She is moving to a new place and starting on the renovations!!
Well, if this isn't just the thing I need to hear. No need to park the car quite yet. I want to live until I die...just like Corey's mother in law.
My little renovation!!! A long time coming. Say...twenty years! We built a patio but never felt comfortable sitting out there because of the closeness of the neighbors. They are lovely people but it was just too close to feel relaxed. I mean I sometimes run Ginny out to her lead in my pajamas!
The fence project took only one day! The man was great at this job! I think it's just beautiful. Why would we wait until October? Because we were in line....a long line.
Today I bought some white spray paint and I'm going to freshen up a metal side table. I also bought cement cleaner. We will see how that goes. Two jobs I've never done. I'll let you see how they turn out!
I'd like twinkle lights and a Solo bonfire too.
Good things come to those who wait. (not in the Bible)
