So, we've been thinking about getting me a desk. The problem with getting a desk is: where to put it, and how much to willingly pay for it? Obvious place to put it is in the living room (makes for a place filled with clutter, one that has to be cleared away each time we have a VIP over (like e.g. Micke's mom...). The not so obvious place is in Micke's workroom*, but then we'd have to manage to coexist and work in the same room. Let me tell you, neither room is great to put a desk in. And I hate that it is so. Because of a lot of other reasons than the ones above.
Better would be not to get a desk at all. Would be cheaper too. Even though a potential candidate would cost 39€ at IKEA. Next problem would be how to get it home without a car? (song: "...and another one rides the bus...")
*or the bedroom, but I ain't putting a desk there in 1 M years.
What else? Well, I haven't planted anything in the pots for the balcony yet. I've gone and gotten everything I need in order to start planting, everything but one thing: the wanting to plant-thingy.
I want a kitchen garden with herbs (basil, thyme etc.) and salads, but at this rate it looks more like a dream than a reality. What I need is for someone or something to tell me to start doing it, before it's too late into the growing season. I also want to make the garden more perennial than annual, so I've decided not to plant any flowers this year. I just can't get flowers to grow on the balcony - the sun either burns them away or they just die, and if I buy pre-cultivated ones they (usually) get some sort of disease/mold and die. It's not easy, when it gets as hot as 40 degrees Celsius some days on that balcony.
The ones who built our whole neighborhood didn't plan accordingly - 40 degrees on the balcony and 35 degrees inside in the summer. Whoopee-doo! Oh, don't get me wrong, I love our home, but is annoying to live in it on some days.
