You’d think I’d have a lot to say – what with all the guests and all?
But I don’t.
The days fly by. The folks come and go. The work-around-the-house has virtually stopped. It’s a holiday. Kinda. Whether you want one or not.
Face it, this is not the kind of life one needs a holiday from.
Still, it is all very nice in a lethargic kinda way.
Well, we are busy when we have guests so it is not really lethargic in that sense. Cooking, cleaning, shopping-when-you-can and just plain ‘visiting’ takes a lot of time. And energy. It is just somewhat unconstructive and, for some reason, I have got construction in my head. It is a phase, I guess. The terrible twos, the frightening fours, the tumultuous teens and the still-sexy-but-constructive sixties, eh?
It will pass.
I enjoyed G, Sal’s father’s sailing buddy. He and I worked well together. We didn’t do much and what we did wasn’t right but we whiled away a few hours in a pleasant carpenter-kinda way. It was good. And, more to the point, we were still talking to one another after a day of working together!!
It is so much different working with men than my wife. You’d think they were a different species. And she works well with other women!!?? So, the old from-Mars and from-Venus thing is still strong after all these years! Mind you, Sal and I ‘patch things up’ quickly and patching is kind of a fun way to while away a bit of time so I am not complaining. Just sayin’….
Probably said too much…….she does ‘edit’ this stuff, ya know.
Oh well, I am in the mood for a little patching.
