Sunday Morning Notes

My Sunday Morning Project is to decide what to do
to make the best use of time: first is finding a new hot
water bottle for Nici, after two months coughing non-
stop her computer was moved from the study into her
bedroom, the most delightful room in the house; I could
not convince my beloved to do this before - therefore it is
a victory that he decided to do this all by himself

Now Nici sits on her bed ensconced in a nest of blankets
and pillows, busy with her photoshop project, comfortable
and warm - and I have the cold study to myself, all tidy and
freezing where I created work space by balancing the laptop
on a card-board box - another victory is I managed to decorate
my bedside table; my beloved’s side is austerity itself - a pile of
books, a black and white panda and a single white candle

My side is vibrant with colours, the green of sunlit leaves, the
glow of flowers in yellow, purple and pink; the rustic brown of
the nativity scene; my paper doll &three smaller dolls to keep me
company – my Astrogenetic sign means I can’t master interior de-
corating with classical lines - the more I try, the more eclectic my
corner becomes as symbolical meaning overrides everything, thus
symbolism is so mucn more important than appearance to me!

The Apple on the Tree—
Provided it do hopeless—hang—
That—"Heaven" is—to Me!
