It’s official, Bush is gone! And we thank whatever deity is responsible for that. Obama has been sworn in, and in his inauguration speech, has called us to service. Reminded us that the United States is not a few people in Washington, D.C. It is all of us, working together. And work together we will.
And so Change comes. Change a chez Silverstar, too. One change is that I have bought a cane. I finally recognized that I need the support when first standing up, and that my walker is too big for in the apartment. So now I’m an older lady with a cane, too. But at least I bought a pretty one with flowers on it.
More changes. I cadged a couple of pieces of furniture. One is a bookcase, much needed. The other is a TV stand. This building has a tradition that things that are abandoned are left for others to use. But space is limited, and so two items that are less functional will have to leave. One is a table that I bought to be a side table, but which is too low for the purpose. It would make a better coffee table, but I have no room for that. The other is a triangular do-dad shelf thingy, which I think I cadged here in the first place. It’s not stable, so, out it goes.
Seattle weather has changed, too. After a couple of days of sun, we are back to the fog and clouds we are used to. I spent Sunday out with my camera taking pictures. I was going to do a slide show, but I have a lot of things to do. I posted some pictures over at Photofilia, but if you’d like to get the full flavor of the day, you will find it in the Sunny Sunday set on my Flickr account.
So, I’m off to make things happen, put things in order, and see what a new day will bring.
