Houses and Dreams
Hmmph. Have you ever noticed Home-owning is one step forward , two steps back? This morning the Electric Dudes came over to hang my new chandelier ( well, not NEW, very old actually ) in the kitchen. It's very lovely and Spooky and cool and ought never be in a kitchen in any home except for mine ( and perhaps our Malena's ) and I was very excited to get rid of the horrid 70's florescent light that was there.
Well, it looks great. WAY out of place, which I love, only....Now the table and chairs don't go. Completely wrong. They must go.
I even know what I want in there. I know the PERFECT table and chair for the space. The sad thing is they currently reside in Malena's dinning room and even if she WOULD send them to me ( selfish creature ) I would need to get rid of the re-fridgerator, which might create it's own set of problems.
I also have a plan to ditch my claw foot bathtub ( which is currently a planter ) and put in a washer-dryer in the bathroom, saving me hauling my laundry down to the basement and having to use the most non-code Steps of Doom. May have to wait for St Pats Day to pay for it tho.
I picked up Melissa Etheride's new cd yesterday. She does a lot of things I like, some 60 second interludes every so often, and there are a couple songs I do like, and I do respect any artist to make the album they need to..One makes the cd one needs to, but, well, she's really happy, in love and having just beat cancer, really closer to the spirit side of things. All good. And yes, War is bad. Again good. I don't know, I like hungry in music. I like a bit more of an edge. I like doom, disaster, broken hearts and need.
I am glad for her tho, being so in love and happy, and am going to play it a bunch and find the things I like best on it. I love " message to myself " and " I've known you before" and all the interludes, it's a well made cd, with some great guitar work, nice cd to dream to I think. She makes some good points. I want a cover cd from her, tho, like Tori did a few years back.
Ok, high time I went off to work. I shall listen to my cd, and dream about my house. ( of course, if I am going to dream , I am SO adding a garage with a secret passage to the basement and a circular staircase to replace the Steps of Doom....)
Love, Music and Houses,
