Mulling it over.

Sunrise on the open road…

I went to bed last night, knowing exactly what I was going to write today.

I was busily composing my post in my head as I lay in bed, upset about a couple of things that happened during the day.

Of course, when morning came, I thought the better of it, and decided to tackle things a bit differently. I wonder sometimes if it is a good thing to think about things that you feel you need to get out there, instead of just saying it. I suppose the difference is that if you thought about it, you approach it in a different way, maybe a bit more tactful and thoughtful, whereas if you just let rip immediately, you might say things you regret later. So I have probably answered my own question…

My problem is, I often let things go if I don’t address it immediately. But I don’t LET GO let go, so it is scratching away on the inside, until it surfaces again. Oi…

Today I decided to tackle a little project that has been brewing at the back of my mind for a while now. I’ve got a little round pine table that is being used on the guesthouse patio. It has been looking sadder and sadder by the week, so this morning I grabbed the sander and started sanding it down, so I can paint it to fit in with my guesthouse theme. What is my theme? Well, if I tell you that I’m thinking of changing the name to “Cow Cottage”, I think it will give you a hint… 😉

But now I have to decide whether I want to go all colourful and cute, or more fancy and monochrome. Decisions, decisions…

I will do one whole post on the table, as soon as it is finished. And this can’t take months to do, as I do have guests coming in this weekend, so it has to happen chop-chop (that is soon, or quickly, or right away in South African!) 😀
