Now you see this…my very comfortable bed for the last week +, and my two night tables (two suitcases)…and hopefully after tomorrow all of this very minimalist look will fade into the sunset, very hot one I may add.
Left is my temporary entertainment center, where I have learned to convert people from being short and heavy to people being tall and part of the head missing. No one is perfect. So it is. Right is where my magic happens and I communicate with you and the world. Not that bad. It works…but no, tomorrow the invasion of stuff is coming into my humble Florida condo and is going to take over, and maybe I will feel a bit suffocated after all this simple way of life. But I miss my stuff. I wanted to share with you the transformation that will be happening. From 1,500 sq. ft. to 871 sq. ft. Love it! Probably all of it will look short and heavy. Contagious it may be. But I am sure I will know how to handle all of this. Besides, my back will be very appreciative of a table and chair for me to type, and not from sitting on the carpet. Right now is a killer.
This was my dinner today, Monday. Chicken breast and fried ripe plantains. I couldn’t believe it when I saw them at the deli counter of my now favorite supermarket. I could have these plantains daily, twice a day if possible. I am getting closer and closer to all that Caribbean food I so love, but that will make me look like the people on my tv. Have to watch it.
Well, my friends, so it was today…25 July, 2011…a day getting closer to be inundated with “my stuff.”
Your Happy Contessa
