Tackling The Bathroom & Other Chores
This is the first year I've had success with the moon flower vine. The blooms are huge and magnificent in the darkness. And many times they will last till close to noon the next day if the sky is overcast.
"Isn't that right, Charlie Ross?" I so rarely get a good photo of his face. And usually I can only get it when he's right in front or me.
I bought one kale this year. And now it is huge. I so enjoy the many green layers of wavy leaves and purple veins.
Have you read The Husband's Secret? If you haven't, you should. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. And I am in total admiration of the writer, Liane Moriarty. I thought it was better than her Big Little Lies I recently read.
Now I'm about to start reading The Good Girl by Mary Kubica. And I've also been reading The Sociopath Next Door. Chilling but good-to-know information there.
Otherwise I'm trying to ready the house and patio garden for surgery a week from today. I like to have things done and I check them off my list. I go in to discuss my pre-op tomorrow afternoon.
Not sure how mobile I'll be for awhile. So don't want things like dust on the ceiling fans or top of the fridge and all those other things we put off.
Rusty the rooster will be outside overseeing things. I have to get out there and move everything away from the wall because they're coming to clean the gutters. I expect quite a mess!
I'm also finally getting up to working on the tiny bathroom. It has a mirror that starts at the wall where you go in and extends beyond the vanity and then the toilet. So yes, it's massive. And I'm trying to play it down.
Will show you that when I'm done, if I can get some photos of this tiny space.
Off to get my coffee now. Cool this morning. I have some painting I'd like to get done. So we'll see how the day goes.
