Only three things broke during my move to New Hampshire: my ceramic parrot lamp, my monkey tail coat hook, and my turquoise piggy bank. Is the universe telling me to move on from my kitschy animal phase of home decorating? I don’t know, but there is a new package of super glue on my table, and I fully intend to glue the monkey tail coat hook back together.
In all seriousness, I’m really enjoying decorating. I ordered some (tasteful, I think) leaf print curtains for the living room. In keeping with the green theme I established on Days 90, 91, and 92, the curtains have about six different shades of green in them. The coat hook that I’m going to salvage is actually green too.
I was in Vermont last week and was reminded that green is actually in the name of the state. Ver + Mont = Green + Mountain. I’m just over the border in New Hampshire myself, but it does seem that green is the predominant color around here, too. I suspect this winter it will be hard to find, but, for now, it’s a lush, verdant world I’m in.
Today’s thank you goes to someone who talked me through getting a piece of machinery fixed. Not a fun task, but it was nice of him to help.
