(no subject)

So, i'm threatening to make curtains if Christine will investigate curtain hardware. We have two pairs of sliding glass doors. I love all the light but Christine isn't so fond. We've had highly annoying vertical blinds that have been disintegrating since we moved in. I wonder if she'd like the windows better if there were decent drapes. It's just straight seams, right?

IKEA has in a fabric botanical print with a purple-gold-green color scheme. It might be very close to some of the carpet squares we have. It is, at least, a similar scheme. I hope to get to IKEA today to get a sample of the fabric and some storage boxes for the china sets.

My morning tea water didn't really boil this morning. The electric kettle became cranky, so i put the tea pot on the stove. (It's a heavy ceramic designed to be used as a kettle as well.) That seemed to take forever. I don't feel well prepared for the day.

Take the list or similar, and quickly dash off three small things in each area that can be done to improve your quality of being. Then set aside. Repeat the process some time later (a quarter? "ten week" period?) and then review the previous one. Tag taw@w & ftf
