This week, I had grand plans to get things accomplished. I made myself a schedule for my editing work, and then there was the spring cleaning. With a few fun things sprinkled in too. Then my mom ended up in the hospital, and all my plans shattered! I'm so glad I'm able to be there for her, but the house is a mess!
And that's not the only thing that has shattered! Due to my lack of china cabinet (and lack of a place to put one in this house), some of my Grandma's antique china is displayed above the top cabinets in the kitchen. Well one day, as I was unloading the dishwasher, I got a surprise! The big tray, which had been propped--securely, I thought--against the wall slipped forward knocking the small tray and a casserole dish off, narrowly missing my head! One hit my arm as I reached to put a glass away, then shattered against the counter and floor. Breaking my favourite pen in the process.
I don't really know what to do with it. It would be pointless to glue it all back together (several of my tea cups are painstakingly glued together, but of course they're unusable in that state). I suppose there's some mosaic work in my future!
So in the midst of the mess of the house and my plans, I'm lighting my gardenia candle, and getting to work! I want the main floor liveable again! And I need some laundry washed for yoga tomorrow morning.
