Hold on to what is good even if it is a handful of earth.
Hold on to what you believe even if it is a tree which stands by itself.
Hold on to what you must do even if it is a long way from here.
Hold on to life even when it is easier letting go.
Hold on to my hand even when I have gone away from you.

Sanding and Internet Date #1

Sanding mmmm. Don't you just LOVE sanding. No. Well, it looks nice when it is sanded.

But you have to wear a mask... and I am wearing one of those little blue ones that are disposable. And then the breath goes up under your eyes. And you need to wear safety glasses. And yes, your breath goes INTO the safety glasses and steams them up, and you have steam inside and plaster dust outside and you cannot breathe and you cannot see. It is very fun.

And then everything is covered in dust.

But afterwards you can clean up with the shopvac. And yes we DŲ love our shopvac.

And wash with TSP, and rinse. And then fix the plaster and take a bath. That is the best part.

Tomorrow I have an internet date. haha!!

Yes, someone in town who is just one year older than me, and used to be a firefighter but reads and likes lots of kinds of food and many kinds of music. He seems to be romantic however... which is good, but he seems to think I might be a lady. MWAHAHAHAH!! A LADY!

Well, the poor man. I dunno. Where do all the funky queer genderbending artsy types hang out nline? I dunno. So I get these straight guys. But at least he is not 23 nor 59, and he looks ok. So we are going for coffee about 7:30 pm. I'll tell you how it goes.

And for your further edification, here are photos from my Saturday night scrubbing off purple lavender latex paint extravaganza. Wow, I am so HOT!!! LOL!

Any suggestions for what color to paint it now?? I was going to put back the purple lavender, cuz I like it, but it looks so much bigger with a lighter color on the walls. We'll see.

I wonder if the internet date guy likes home renovations? hehehe.
night night

ps, the green color on the ceiling is the new water-resistant gyproc replacing the plaster pulled down when the waterpipe leaked... in MARCH if you can believe it
