Happily, my arms hold the most ugly and vibrant of my current blood bruises (senile purpura). My hands are pretty clear. So I can wear my light weight long sleeved sweater to brunch and not look like a leper.
Yesterday I dropped into the fabric store near my house and a new project was born. I'm thinking of making a slip cover for my big chair in the living room. Ordinarily that would be a massive undertaking but this chair's design is such that once I get the dimensions noodled, it will be easy peasy and I can make several and change the chair's 'clothing' easily for a new look. The store has old people discounts on Tuesdays and Thursdays so I'll go back next week. I think I can give my chair a new outfit for about $10.
This week, Chef Anita will be here on Tuesday and the housecleaner on Wednesday. The electrician says he's coming to swap out my ceiling fixtures but he's said that many times and has yet to show up so I'm not clearing the calendar. My designer who hires this guy every time, is moving to London so she won't be doing any more work for me so I won't have to be fucked around by this dude any more. He's really hot looking but a hot mess to work with and impossible to count on.
It's going to be hot today, inside. Outside is supposed to be sunny and warm but not hot. The rest of the week is going to be cooler so if I can keep the house cool today, I'll be good til at least next weekend, I think. My new air conditioner is doing a great job. I'm not looking forward to seeing the bill but I love the cool.
