Wasted time

Tuesday, July 09, 2013

I can regret that I have wasted (and still do) so much time not appreciating myself and trying to express what I am as a gift to the world...but maybe that should be a part of the process. In order to have that wonderful diamond in the end I have to pass a lot of painful experiences to be polished by...

The food – I arranged my plate and started eating before I remembered that I should take a pictura also:

Chicken skewers (bought ready-made) with rice, salad and carrots.

Reading a blog about renovating the kitchen, I remember that I want to present my garage door project although it has been completed for a while now. When I moved here the side door of my garage was just a nailed board and I needed a door to be able to get ina and out of the garage without getting dirty from the car. So I bought a cheap one and installed it - but got stuck with how to fix the frame and empty space above the door, was thinking about getting a window but never really got around to it.

So it was a typical depressing half finished project:

as you can see it has started to grey from the weather... but this spring I asked my borther to help, if not with the work so with the ideas. He explained a realy simple solution and also helped me doing it. Now I have painted it and it gives me joy every time I see it:

although the handle and lock is still not really fixed...

    PS I can say that it is my impression, that you ARE being quite a gift to the world. I read so much about your performances, articles, your care for your daughter... I think you're doing a good job of using your talents.

    I can truly say you are a gift to me on here - you make me reflect on things that I do - right and wrong - and on ways that I think - ways that could be better. Be nicer to yourself, MP - you are a very worthwhile person.

    LOVE the garage door - I often start projects - mostly for my house and then get discouraged when I get 'stuck'. How wonderful to have a brother as helpful as yours - or even a brother at all. Can I borrow him? LOL

    It looks great. So, you have one of those typically 'red' Scandinavian houses! Wonderful.
