swampy was out taking photos of the garden in the dark last night~and calling into me how amazing the nicotiana was smelling~the white ones shown here i grew from seed, never imaginging how large they would grow. they seemed to just grow and grow, and many times i would wonder if they really were going to be what was excepcted. now standing about 4-5 foot high~while the smaller ones i bought at the farm shop to fill in some gaps stand at a dainty 5-6 inches.
as yet i have not been out at dusk and smelt them~its only today my nose is feeling unblocked, so tonight i will.
also yesterday, well into my moontime, but feeling ambitious as well as a little stir-crazy, i suggested we go to look at paint, wood, stone slabs and then maybe go to ikea~so i ended up sitting outside of ikea, on a bookcase, hunched over, desperately trying not to be sick, while swampy hurried off to the car park to drive round and load both me and bookcase into pippin. we hurried home and my lovely swampy made me a hot water bottle while i pulled on my pyjamas and collapsed on the sofa.
i have found the older i get the worse i become each month.
is it wrong to wish to become a crone early?
returning to my bookcase~we had not planned on going out to buy one, the original idea had been paint for our living room. but the paint colors i had chosen from my 'forever house' scrapbook, were not listed and so i have had to bring home new charts and start again. typical.
our old bookcase has been slowly falling apart~it was one that we picked up from outside a house back in dorset~they had obviously just bought some new stuff, because one day driving down the lane we saw a pile of goodies with a sign 'please help yourself' so we did and it has served us well but on its last legs.
so yesterday when faced with a larger, much sturdier one that had been reduced in price to £39 from £70 we dived in and treated ourselves.
...looking at that photo made me realise how glad it will be to get it painted! when we moved in every wall of the house had dried tea/coffee stains and crayon marks on them! my ideas for color for this room are a chalky white/grey with the main wall and wall with chimney in a muted green color
~what do you think?~
