I Mayn't and I Shan't!
They are now back to speaking to me and even helping some.
It seems that Daisy informed them that this is not to be her main home. She is a traveler of sorts...Time and Distance. She is away a lot of the time and she will need caretakers until she returns.
Right up their alley. Free lodging and if I know them, they will help themselves to whatever is in the refrigerator, if there is one.
They picked up two words from Daisy's letters. I had forgotten about them until I started thinking about Grandma Daisy. She used to use them a lot when I was a teen...
They were shan't and mayn't. Shall not and may not contractions. I haven't heard anyone use them I years. I knew when Grandma Daisy was serious. Those two words came out in her speech.
Out of curiosity, I looked them up online and found that both words are from the 1600s! Perhaps my grandmother was a time traveler too?
Anyway, Daisy Eulalia wrote to ask the Terrible Two to oversee the building because she won't be coming back from Egypt until it is finished and she can move in directly.
Meanwhile, I gave up on trying to get Tessie out of the new chair and started another one for Daisy. It will be a wicker wing chair when it is done. I like the color better anyway...Only one problem...I think that Zar has his eye on this one.
The house is coming along nicely. I finished putting in the living room bay. It isn't bad, but will need a lot of trimming out to look good.
It adds a little depth to the living room.
I didn't even bother to glue it in place or tape it.
No question...It is going to grow. Why bother to bump it out only a half inch.
I shan't! If I am going to do it, it has to come out at least a couple of feet(inches).
Back to work. I mayn't have the house finished tomorrow, but I will be back anyway.
See you then.
