It’s Wednesday; it’s a cool late summer morning. I have work to do, writing to continue, and jobs for which to search and apply. But I chose to find a different way to measure my day.
I’ve run out of money to hire people to do things here at Angel’s Haven. However, a lot needs to be done.
Hand-painted dishes (reveal below) from Mexico so very like ones we had in my childhood home, set of five cups and saucers found at Robin’s Nest in Rio Vista: $5.00
Somebody’s home-made, not-quite-squared-when-built shelf, from the same thrift store: $3.00
D-rings, wood screws, level, & electric-screw-driver, all already in my toolbox, so, free.
Getting a crooked shelf hung on a crooked wall above a crooked tile back splash with a minimum amount of cursing and only one do-over, AND GETTING IT LEVEL RIGHT ON THE DANG MONEY:
It’s the fifteenth day of the fifty-sixth month of My Year Without Complaining. Life continues.
