Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined. Henry David Thoreau

Hello little e-space window.
I can't wait to sit here and look out.

I guess you have figured out by now
that I do a lot of dreaming out here.

My husband thinks I am sleeping
but in reality,
I am visualizing
how I want to place 
the furniture.
And what color
I want each room to be.

When he sees me
sitting with my eyes closed
he assumes that
I have nothing to do
and that it would
be a good time
to ask me
where I want the light switches
in each room.

He is so very wrong.
But, he is stressing right now.
He is stressing about the wiring.
He is stressing 
about the fireplace
(aka we need to draw up the picture with exact sizes
so that the builder can build it.)
He is stressing about the roof.
It's still not done.
He is stressing about the soffits and eaves.
They are still not done.
And they have to be done before the roof can get finished.

He stressing because yesterday
the builder casually mentioned pulling
off some of the guys to go work on some roofs elsewhere.
And laying off some of the rest of them.

He is stressing because
he can't find the boat battery
and we are going to the lake this weekend.

This is an emergency!

We really need to go to the lake
this weekend.
My husband needs to walk away from the house 
for a little while
and cruise up the lake
very fast.

So, until those builders
get busy and finish something,
I am going to sit and gaze out of my little window
and think about color.

Basket Beige.

Hello window.

"Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense." Ralph Waldo Emerson
