Aha. Back again at 70+1 day. Got through a Eucharist this morning with active help from "Sound System Guy," "Musician," and "Acolyte," not to mention "Rector's Warden" and others in uncredited roles. Preached -- about three times longer than I meant to. I have a strong feeling the congregation was finished listening well before I was finished talking. However they were polite, and did not retract the honorarium. We had good coffee afterward and pleasant if desultory conversation.
One of the Rambler's birthday gifts yesterday was a set of beautiful bedsheets. Of a size incompatible with the Rambler's current bed. Which has been her current bed since 1967. Indicating the impatience of her family with her SLOWTH in the replacement of worn-out furniture.
So this afternoon I must ramble forth and take advantage of a momentary mattress sale (but when are mattresses ever NOT on sale, we ask ourself), and then investigate a suitable bed-frame, like, you know, with a headboard and a footboard and side-rails, and like them.
And then grapple with the whole SEQUENCING problem -- delivery of new bedding, delivery of new bed-frame, removal of worn-out bed, possibly ripping up of worn-out bedroom carpet somewhere in the one-two-three-four of that process?
And the lovely Robot Lady at the public library has called to tell me I have a book on hold, so I should pick that up this afternoon also.
And think about some supper, and the week's doings ahead of me.
Avanti! Away I go. No Sabbath nap this week!
