Only Money

Where is today’s topic? I’ve searched high and low and it is no where to be seen. I could write about my latest book. For instance, in the shower this morning, I realized I didn’t have to have the protagonist fall into enemy hands at all, he could simply leave because of the death of his friend, rather than have to escape. Then I have to ask myself, which is more exciting to read, rather than easy to write. Ah ha. The classic delima.

I could also update you on the quilt, but after the light bulb went on and I finished the front, there is nothing left to complain about. Sure, it has to be quilted now, and I have changed my mind about the binding, but for the most part it is down-hill from here on out.

The yard. Well, I planted a new rose bush to replace the one that came up from below the graft this year. Sad to tear out a beautiful, thriving plant, but as you know, the flower is what we are after. I need two more for the back yard, but I haven’t gotten the holes ready.

Getting the house in the Black Forest ready to sell is one complication after another. Laws have changed since I bought the place. Things that didn’t have to be done when I bought it, have to be done now, and none of them are inexpensive. The alternative is to not sell it, which means rent it out again (more fixing in the future) or move back. The latter brings up all kinds of negative thoughts, such as moving (ugh and expensive), not playing tennis with my tennis partner (and we are so well suited which makes it so much fun), not being able to see my granddaughter at the drop of a hat, and giving up my ping-pong table. Not gonna happen – and so I tell myself – deal with it, just don’t worry about it. It’s only money, I’ve heard said (by someone not paying the bill).

Now where did that topic go …
