But we are simply Zenning by omission, in other words we have not yet hung a *single* painting on our walls. We still have a line of large boxes in the newly-designated ‘guest room’. They are full of paintings, books and other
treasures junque yours truly has forgotten about. Boxes of antique china sit on top of the fridge, waiting for lights to be installed in the sideboard. I am not loading that china into the sideboard, then hauling it back out to install lights and then putting it back in again. Nope.

We have numerous *large* paintings, heavy suckers. I can’t lift them and hold them up while we decide that they need to go four inches to the right and an inch higher. Himself is no better, having a useless right arm. And until the big ones go up, we can’t hang the little ones. It ain’t arf frustratin’.
The “Call us and we will come” guys, Karim and Sayid, are simply lovely, but possess a fatal flaw when it comes to this kind of task. They do not listen to instructions, general or specific, especially if they come from the mouth of a woman. I know *where* I want the pictures hung. Karim and Sayid would not hang them there.
But it’s only been five months since we started. I don’t know why I’m impatient. Apparently Rome wasn’t built in a day either.
