Daily Reminder # 394

Well, despite my dire expectations, it wasn't a bad day. Most of what was done wrong was fixed and they will come back at some point and finish the last bit. Except for not having electric (no computer, no TV.... eeek) for 6 hours, it was a reasonably pleasant day. Luckily it stayed on the cool side so the absence of fans wasn't a problem. It was a little tense at first, but Mr. Powell came and talked through the issues with Dominic. He just brought one assistant with him today - an interesting young man heading into his senior year in college, who loves China and has traveled there several times already in his young life. He is learning Chinese and wants to go to Tibet. He's heading to China again in August.  So, except for some anxiety about doors opening unattended and my initial fear of confrontation, it ended up being a very pleasant day. As for the doors, it's one of those cosmic jokes that the Universe seems to enjoy. Agoraphobic woman lives in a house where none of the doors want to close properly. How's that for irony? Or something.

Another nice thing about the day was that Tara spent a lot of time with me. Much head butting was done between naps... and I got some pictures. She does have some kind of camera voodoo. So hard to get a good photo of her.
