Dolce Far Niente

AKA sweet idleness.  I wish.

Yesterday, we were served a termination notice - so now we have to look for a new place to call home.  I hate renting.  Buy your own house, you trill.  Well, the answer to that is, even worse than renting is owing the bank a million dollars.  I hate banks.

BUT, there are several things in life that I love, and one of those things is Pre-Raphaelite Art.   Love it, can't look at them enough.   Wish I could buy a few to put on the wall.   Pre-Raphaelite art would make even the dowdiest rental look great.   I know this.

I have included some examples of my favorites.  And no, they are not for sale. I checked.
