I thought my procrastinating was all done but it wasn’t – is it ever?
I thought to myself, it’s almost time for lunch so I’ll just wash the salt off the windows then eat so I won’t find myself starving at 3:00pm. Living at the beach it gets to the point where you can hardly see out! I am to be congratulated for cleaning them all on the inside as well – if someone even so much as looks sideways at them they’ll be given the white vinegar solution and some newspaper!
Lunch – go outside and pick a fresh acid-free tomato and some basil. Can you go into the garden and not pull a few weeds? Now the entire (albeit small) vegetable garden is weeded and I’m thinking about what to plant in the space left by the lettuces that had bolted.
Lunchtime – avocado, tomato and basil on toast – will an avocado tree grow here? Research of whether an avocado can withstand salt winds is done and the answer is, probably not. What will I plant? Broad beans, carrots, beetroot and some lettuce seedlings.
The postie (mailman) went past while I was eating so I collected the mail, read my new contact for work but drew the line at filling in some forms. The idea that I would be working full-time somehow that triggered the thought that I have some air-points about to expire so I rang Thai Airways in Auckland to find out where I can go – I need to top up 2,000 points and then I can go to a Pacific Island.
Checked emails after I looked up the number for Thai Airways – there was a reminder that Paul Phillips was about to go live on U Stream so I decided to watch and do some knitting. That way I wouldn’t feel guilty about not cutting some patches for the quilt.
No Paula for some reason so no knitting – I’m writing this instead!
It’s now almost 2:30 hours since the earlier post so I better pull finger and start cutting!
And that, my friends, is another reason this is called Late Start Studio!
