SYW May 14, 2018

Every so often, nosy Cee wants to know what we’ve been up to.  I often forget to play, but here are my answers for this week along with some extra info:

Complete this sentence: This sandwich could really use some …teeth in it.

What is your least favorite candy? Licorice

What sign are you? Do you believe in astrology? Cancer. I have the same attitude toward astrology as I do toward religion. I would like to believe in it and at times behave as though I do but I am skeptical. I would still always read my horoscope if I subscribed to a paper, as I occasionally pray when in an extremely harrowing situation. I am a great believer in synchronicity and the interconnectedness of the universe. Perhaps they are all one and the same thing.

What did you appreciate or what made you smile this past week?  So, my week has been a time of dinner out with friends complete with Mexican dancers, Mexican train, film nights at my house, swims in the pool between rainstorms, trees blooming all over town, smashed fingers, cut fingers, burned fingers, roof repairs, hurricane-strength winds, trees down, electrical outages, picking up after hurricane-strength winds, rainfall, towels and bowls under leaks, cats in every corner of the house escaping the rain, broken fingernails and removing the domed clear skylight (which is cracked in two places and leaking during rainstorms) in the middle of my 18 foot high dome. After they removed the frosted skylight, the sky shone bright blue through the opening and clouds drifted by. All too soon, however, they’d covered it with a clear piece of plastic and tarps which plunged the room into a gloomy darkness. It will be this way until they return with a new domed skylight custom-crafted to fit exactly as the old one did.

I had always known how responsible that skylight was for the light in the room, but I was surprised at the degree to which it served as a sun for my world.  In spite of  glass walls on 1 ½ sides, the otherwise cheerful room developed shadows and an all-over sort of gloominess that had me turning on every light available. Still, I feel the gloom of my shadowed world as I type this.  Here are a few photos to illustrate:

One question, though.  Why do I keep hurting my fingers????

        They cut a piece of clear plexiglass to fit down into where the dome fit, then covered it with a tarp I believe they fastened down with screws. My contractor is a perfectionist so I’m sure it was done right.

      I know.. Trying to figure out how I did it. I think it is my underwater camera I’ve been using since my camera broke.. I have to push the SD card down so hard to get it to go into the tiny space in the camera..Ridiculous, but that’s the only thing I can think of.

    You keep hurting your fingers because you want to do things yourself? I can understand that drive. 😀 Synchronicity is a good things and to me is spirituality. The Universe shows us spirituality comes in a lot of different ways.

      Couldn’t agree more. I think I hurt myself when I get in a hurry and don’t think things through before I do them. It used to be falling. I slowed down and haven’t fallen in a year. Now, however, I guess I need to apply the same principal to my hands. Slow down. Plenty of time. (Advice to self.)

    OML! That finger looks sore! I KNOW how that feels! I go through a lot of nail glue! And it really does make it darn near dark in there, doesn’t it, to have it covered up…

      The Calicos are Kukla and Frannie. The gray cat is Ollie, the only boy, and the white cat is Roo.
      Kukla is a bit paler than Frannie, who has more black in her spots. Which do you think looks like Dollie?

        No.. I’m in the mall. The noise is brain-shattering. I had to have blood tests done anyway, so I’m just spending the day in town. I have a writers’ meeting at 3 so that will prolong it more.
