I have a neighbor who is incredible.
Her yard looks like it fell out of a magazine, her dog is obedient and sweet, she's kind.
She did something very funny before we moved in, that I won't tell you about, but I think a lot of people do it, only we caught her :).
One day she said to me, "mrs, I could make you some pretty drapes for your bathroom."
I didn't listen.
Then something whispered to me, "Maybe you should listen."
So I did.
She came and measured and we talked about fabric.
I was supposed to go look for fabric, but as I am a recluse and only leave the house when I have to, I didn't do it. (I'm not really a recluse, I'm just lazy.)
One day she called me from Dallas and said, "Can you go look at your email? I just found the perfect fabric for you and it's only $not much.00, a yard."
I hurried to my email, looked and said, "Oh, yes. That's nice."
Really, I said that because I know she has great taste and I trust her.
And it was in my budget.
And I wouldn't have to go shopping.
So, a few weeks later she told me it was time to go get a rod.
I asked her what kind of rod. She answered.
I went shopping.
And then she & her wonderful husband did us the kindest service.
They came an hung the rod and curtains--well, really her husband did most of it.
She and he did the calculating and hanging.I did some holding and a lot of visiting.
(Where was my mr.? I don't know, I don't remember.)
And then they went home.
To their house.
Which is across the street from my window.
My bathroom window.
This happened months after this incident. (This link should work now-sorry it was messed up earlier.)
Oh, the hypocrisy.
