Word order matters in English. "The quality in today is nothing" is not the same thing as "nothing in today is quality."
Finally, this week I got to sleep as long as I wanted (needed?) after a night of work. I got up. I ate something. I sat in my chair and read blogs and did some computer stuff. I played games. I sat in the dark and the quiet, listening to the rain. I have needed a day like this for quite a while.
For a visual, I'll leave you with a picture of a family treasure (only to me). This turkey shaped candy dish was always part of our fall and Christmas holidays as a child. It was often filled with ribbon candy. A long time ago the dish broke into about 20 pieces. I couldn't bear to throw it away, but packed it in a box. I found it a couple of months ago. This week, with the help of crazy glue, I have restored it to usefulness. Sure, if you look closely it's covered with break lines. I don't care. I'm glad to have it back on my table.
If you would like to know more about how that table came to be so clean and good looking in the house of this piggy person, you can read Beating a Horrible Housekeeper into Cleaning Up the Mess. You might find it amusing.
