“To every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.” Isaac Newton
Throughout the weeks I post things that contain random statements about my reality. Sometimes people say things like, “I really want to see that when it’s finished!” Let’s take care of my glib promises and a request.
I did make a glib promise that I was going to have a garden, consisting of two tomato plants. One of the plants produced pre-rotted tomatoes but the other blessed me with a plethora of the little darlings.
They are small and sweet, something I aim for.
The other request is for a picture of the curtains that I’ve been talking about. I think I said something about having 14 panels. After I put my math hat on and did a re-count I found that I had 16 panels for my two narrow windows.
After working with the panels and pressure rods, trying different combinations and convincing the cat that the curtains were not toys (or was she trying to give me advice) the panels are up.
It was not possible to get 8 panels on each window. I had to settle for 7, which left two panels, which now hang on my office door. My husband suggested we get wider windows (aren’t they cute at that age) and left chuckling to himself.
This is a closeup of the panels. Some of them are panels of various colored ribbons. They make my heart happy!
These are seven panels on one window. As I said, I’m going to have to re-paint two of my office walls. Also going to move the mermaid next to one of the windows and move the buddha and plant to a more auspicious place.
The mermaid in question. She started out as an old dress form that someone was discarding. Instead, they gave her to me. After a few years of living with her I decided that she was a mermaid and decked her out as such. She is going to be ecstatic next to the new curtains.
And now, the rest of the story. Not every corner of my life is filled with artistic endeavors. Sometimes my dear friends send me other kind of congratulatory pictures. Like when I wrote about my granddaughter and her potty chair. I got this from one of my dearest friends.
Love it! Every life needs a few giggles!
