“Illya?”

“Yes, Napoleon?” He didn’t open his eyes from his prone position in the airline seat. They were someplace over the Atlantic with another four hours to go in their flight. Sleep had been just another victim of this affair and he was determined to try and catch up before their debriefing. Mr. Waverly was never impressed when you fell asleep on him.

“Do you have a ‘To Do’ list?” Napoleon watched as the stewardess checked on a sleeping passenger, turning out her reading light and adjusting her blanket.

Illya managed to get one eye open. “You mean when I get to New York? Shower, shave, and maybe get something to eat before seeing Mr. Waverly. That’s the best case scenario. I don’t give any of them much hope, though.”

“No, bigger than that.” He returned his attention to his partner.

“Try to unbury my desk unless there’s another assignment.”

“Even bigger than that. I mean, do you have a ‘To Do list’ in your life? What are twenty-five things that you’d like to do?”

It's right around the corner

Things are coming along well out front. We have the river rock down on either side of the walk and we found spot for the garden hook and their lanterns. I got everything into pots. We were going to move flowers today, but TBG was reluctant (I think sore from yesterday). He asked if we could do it tomorrow, which is fine with me. I'm not sore, but I am tired.

When we were at the shed, I picked up a haunted doll house I made a few years ago. The front was okay, not great, but okay. The insides were nothing, so I made the decision that we are going to finish it in, of course, Addams Family style. :DD It should be fun.

Just wondering

Do you have any sticky doors around your place? Any hints as to how to unstick them short of taking them down and sanding them?



When was your last trip to the library? Have you ever had to pay a late fine?



What's something that you've done recently that you are proud of (it doesn't have to be huge, just something small)?
