It's winter. I am bored. I am boring.
I sleep late, I spend too much time on the computer, I take forever to get dressed and ready to leave the house then I am either freezing when we get outside or get bored with being outside and we come back home where I spend too much time on the computer and go to bed late.
I do drink a lot of tea and coffee and I am eating too many scones!
Our wanderings are kept closer to home since it is F R E E Z I N G here every day.
Forget about going out at night !
The sun starts to go down at around 4:00 in the afternoon, I am headed for home for warm tea, sweet things , a book, a movie, a nap .. I am not getting dressed and going back out into the cold.
Nope, not gonna happen, I am officially in Hibernation.
We won't discuss the upset of having a perfect paint job in my kitchen, ruined by the lady's leaky pipes upstairs.
Or the time spent on a dangerous wobbling ladder that my husband had to climb to re-paint the laundry room ceiling where the water damage was quite apparent.
Or the fact that mould is now coming through and it all needs to be bleached and painted again.
OR the fact that walls that I thought were unharmed, are showing cracks in the paint.
A nice lady came to look at the apartment today.
She loved the high ceilings.
The 100 year old oak floors.
The French doors.
The French windows .. Funny, she never mentioned the mould or the cracks.
They say the cold spell is coming to an end.
I hope so.
I am eager to get out and take my long walks again, ending up in neighbourhoods that I don't know as well, finding a cafe that is interesting, walking through a new exhibit at one of the small museums nearby, found in an old mansion.
These are the best, even if the art isn't especially interesting, it is delightful to walk through an old home in a beautiful neighbourhood and envision what it must have been like, years and years ago when it was a home.
The Decorative Artes Museum
Now it is time to go snuggle under the big throw that lies on the sofa, where we will hopefully find a movie on the telly.
Have a good weekend, stay warm ! or cool, as the case may be ~
