Long weekend coming up.
We need to: unpack and put away M’s belongings. This involves incorporating a large number of art works into our decor. The weasel has found a place on the desk under the front window, where he’s out of the sun. That leaves a badger, a horse, and about 80 crows still to house, not to mention some pretty nice prints. Our house does not have a tremendous amount of wall space. Anyway, linked with this is the need to get rid of a bunch of stuff we don’t want. Really. I mean it this time.
The outside needs a bit of work, too. Ahem.
We’ve got to make sure everything is set for M’s trip to Italy. The pochade box! We need to order it! Plus paints, brushes — that stuff she has, or can get locally. I think there are questions, though. And does she have anything to wear? (Probably yes.)
And I’ve got a long hike in mind that I hope I can coax M to come on with me . . .
There’s just a lot — I was just discussing this with my friend L, who said she could retire and she would still have a full time job. It’s a thought.
And then of course there has to be some kind of barbecue — that goes without saying, I think. Which is another reason to get all the spider webs off the outside chairs . . .
