i've lost a lot of respect for a friend, and that makes me sad. but i'll get over it. i've met guys like that before and there's nothing you can do about it.
everyone's asleep. S just got up and we smoked together outside for a few minutes. then she went back to bed. doc is in bed until midnight, when he has to get up for work. though he may take the night off. which i would certainly understand. he went through hell today on no sleep.
i took a two hour nap myself tonight. i love my clean room. now if i could just get the smell of cat piss out of there. i keep the box clean, but lelu has peed on the carpet. we have a steam cleaner now, so i can clean that up. she's always just kind of peed where she wanted, and at 15, it's far too late to do anything about it. i don't mind cleaning it out of the carpet.
i found a tapestry to put over my window. it's so old. like 25 years. it's purple and red and has elephants and camels on it. it's already faded from the sun, and i don't get much sun because of Tony the Tree. so it's perfect to go in the window. air will get through it when the window is open, and i can leave my blinds open so simon and the others can sleep in the window at night.
i'm so bored and i want to do something, but i have to sit here and be quiet. i'm so happy with my room, i want to work on it more.
oh, and tomorrow i'm going to put the white string lights up around the patio. since we're going to be spending a lot more time out there, i figure it's time. plus i need the room in the xmas box for other things i've been finding that are xmas related. unpacking is a good thing. i know where the staple gun is, and extra staples. i have a step stool to reach up to the ceiling without relying on the rickety old chairs. time to make things festive.
the recycling finally got put out. whew. it was taking over the side of the yard. we recycle EVERYthing we possibly can. the only thing we don't have is a compost pile, thank the maker. so anyway, we missed the last recycling pick up so we had a month's worth. plus all the paper i was recycling in the form of magazines from unpacking. i really hate recycling. i'm not afraid to confess it. the whole thing is doc's doing. he is a fanatic about it. once you get over the pain in the ass part of sorting every piece of waste you have, it's quite a lovable trait.
the small rose bush on the side of the house? one of two, is blooming and it's red. and it's small roses. there's only a couple of flowers on it, but dozens of buds. once it gets into fuller bloom, i'll take pictures of it. it's been a really long time since i had roses in the yard. it makes me feel like i'm home. and the pine tree in the back makes me feel like i'm camping. and the patio breezes make me feel like i'm at the shore. this place is fabulous.
