These go more with a different house than this. It’s a Craftsman form the 30’s. The house I would really like sits by the sea and it is a white Victorian with high ceilings.
It’s too dark in here.
When the electrician started and did the kitchen he suggested more light. I have no money so? One way is paper lanterns. Not a prob. Light is everything to me. He was always turning off the lights to save money, but to me light is warm and happy.
I’m going to see what I can do about this today. It’s overcast. Makes the spirit go low when so — especially in the dark. So anyway — managed two meals again and this is third day of anti-d. The first two days were really hard but this morning it is better. I spent $20 on myself. I was junking. I bought a beautiful ginger jar and two books and two mugs and a purple sack for yoga. All that for $20. Since in all these years I could never buy any furniture — geez. Anyway this reminds me of my college years when I went junking all the time — there were more stores for that then.
My art table cost $5. It’s a white formica table — a square — huge — that came from the Sally Ann “as is” yard we used to have here. My god, it is like 30 years old right now! Still as fab as ever. I have sewn on that, painted on that — done everything with it. It is going in the back room which is going to be like an office pretty soon.
So today, focus on eating, exercise, cleaning, lamps. I got an invite to hear some music tonight. I’m going. It will be the first time in ears that I have been out. I can do it.
This is natural light, a minute ago:
I adjusted this next picture to reflect the amount of light I need!
I am going to work on making each room have this much light at all times right now. I don’t care if I have every light turned on in this house. Need this much light because the dark makes me sad. If I had my way, years ago i wanted to put in french doors off both bedrooms. It was always no. I also wanted a spiral stair. It was always no.
Here is light!
Saute a tablespoon of butter in a ten inch pan with straight sides:
— makes four servings, and for more people double the recipe and use a larger pan — you can vary the vegetables, spices, herbs, cheese to your taste as well.
Here is a picture of the bounty I got there — just some vegetables and flowers. Trying to eat. It’s so hard. Omg. It is.
Need more light.
