And so it goes…

The generosity of friends and neighbours has truly warmed our hearts, as we prepare for our Ukrainian house guests. Inspection of our home is set for this week, and just as everything was coming together… it rained…and we discovered a crack in our foundation.

Drywall has been ripped out, carpet removed, and the back garden dug up to repair the problem.

New flooring, fresh drywall and paint, and we’ll be ready to go again…

Permission to write, paint, and imagine are the gifts I gave myself when chronic illness hit - a fair exchange: being for doing. Relevance is an attitude. Humour essential.

  1. Oh my – fascinating to ponder the interweaving of seemingly unrelated shifts from normal. (Whatever normal might mean!) Could fantasize the foundation eavesdropping and angsting no, no, not additional bodies, no I cannot support more, no I feel myself giving way … Perhaps your guests will help restore the garden. You are beginning a grand adventure on multiple levels – hurrah for your generosity (and resilience!)

    1. Thanks Jazz. I think it’s Carolyn Myss who said that you know you’re on the right path when all the obstacles try to stop you. Maybe this is just a reminder that we are in for a shake up. Always good, I’d say.

    1. People here are amazing! Our foundation was fixed within two days, despite how busy contractors are right now. Another is coming Wednesday to repair the floor and wall.
