Taking The Plum Sauce Out Of The Garbage
There is a massive leak in my roof suddenly so I have to patch it. All the water in the waste basket, is from the rain last night.
I got this same sauce back when I had my other daughters, and lived in Coquille, Oregon. Anyone remember that? This shirt, is the same shirt I had, but it changed color from white to pale blue when it was washed with jeans. Last time, I bleached it and ruined it. This time, I just left it.
I used to throw up, about this much, every day, because of torture by the U.S. government when I was a kid.
How many people are going to sit around and do nothing?
You can see, from my droopy eye, I'm being tortured too, but in a different way. It's to the top of my head to the right side and the U.S. has been doing this for 1 full day since last night. It causes a droopy eye as a result.
I'm moving right now, so my place is a mess--have been packing and moving things around along with thinking of how to redecorate. The orange tag thing on the wall is just a color swatch of orange paint. I am going to paint my floor with coral, orange, and maybe a little pink. I got sort of an idea and am going to work on it.
The coral color looks pretty in daylight, orange at night, and pink adds some feminitiy. There's a smudge of yellow and blue I might keep. Not sure how to make it artistic yet, but not patchwork. It would be "classier" to paint a solid glossy color but I'm thinking a few colors might be okay. I sort of want to add a French pink and a little hot magenta pink-purple to it but maybe in accents. I need a camel color for my couch and might get a slip cover for it. It would be fun in faux camel hair.
Should I learn Arabic? Hm, I don't know. I get a bad feeling when I think of it, for some reason, from formal classes, but who knows. I am making a slight amount of progress in Russian finally. And I have to get back to teaching my son Cantonese.
With Russian, I needed background and framework for it. Then, with some pictorals for visual learning with Vera lessons, I think I can pick it up. I needed the bigger picture and the details to format it in my mind better. It's not there at all yet, but it will happen okay, when it does. When I say "background" I mean, I listened to Living Language a long time. I will listen to it more. Then just patching in a few reminders here and there, helps to reinforce it in my mind. I haven't done any writing or workbook yet, but laying a foundation. It's mostly this idea of completely different characters and memorization of them. After that, it shouldn't be harder to learn than Spanish or French. Right now, I can only say "drastoy" (hello).
