i can breathe!
finally they have removed the scaffolding from our house. it's been up for over a month even though the painters only painted for about a week out of that month. this is how our landlord does things. i wouldn't be complaining if the house turned out the above color, but alas that is someone else's house. ours is tan with brown trim. an ugly tan.
they had netting around the scaffolding, which made the flat dark. it's amazing how dependent i am on light. when i look at a place to live, light is always on the top of my requirements list. another creepy thing was that the scaffolding went right up to our windows, which don't lock. one evening i was taking out the trash and found a man clinging to the bottom of the scaffolding and eyeballing the levels. for like 5 minutes at least. he looked like he was considering a breakin or maybe a nap. anyhow, i'm so glad the scaffolding is gone! the curtains are up and the sun is pouring in. horay!
time to do some sewing before school. hand quilting takes forever. i'm thinking about investing in a new sewing machine. but i'm not ready for sewing machine advice yet, so i'll ask you dear sewing readers for it later.
i need to get some cds to replace old tapes. specifically lately i've been wanting:
the dirty dancing soundtrack(s)
antony and the johnsons
screamin' jay hawkins
