The Mundane

A neighbor up the street left their very bright yard lights on all night. Maybe they are afraid that deer will sneak up on them. The light destroys the ambiance of night. Moonlight I don't mind, but a big patch of electric light is not suitable to the neighborhood. It emphasizes the darkness around it, and at the same time drains it of romance. It becomes an illuminated empty space surrounded by empty darkness. It annoys me. I might have to go snatch their light bulbs if they keep this up.

Tonight, I did a partial inventory of the things in the house that ought to be fixed. There are a lot of them. Though they are mostly cosmetic, they will involve a lot of work and some expense. Eventually, the house will have to be sold, and all those little things will need to be fixed before then, or the house will be undervalued. There are a couple of more costly projects that would probably help sell it, too, but I don't think those are things I could tackle myself. And I don't even want to think about what needs to be done to the yard.

Ah, reality intruding on life again. Why is there so much stuff in the world?
