I'm painting.... yippee!!

and am so excited about it!  Yesterday started out a little rocky with me have a pity party and complaining about, well, life but after a nice chat, a little inspiration & some quick cleaning the day was looking much brighter.  So.... I am now painting!  We have had the paint for quite some time but being a bit trepadicious about the whole project I didn't proceed until I was absolutely sure.  The kitchen is a wreck, for sure!  But do you know what?  It doesn't matter! :)  Meals were prepared in advance, the cabinets are emptied and sorted,  gifts have been packaged (treasures tucked away in forgotten corners) and paint is drying as I type.

And the most exciting news!!  My folks will be out for Ian's graduation at the end of May!  I am not sure how long they will be staying but I do miss my Mom!  Yes that is one of the reasons for the flurry of activity..... aside from it being spring.  My Mom's visit and Ian's graduation!  Besides we have now lived here long enough to really have a feel for the house and to figure out what works best both inside and out.  :)

Have a wonderful week!


  1. Can't wait to see the painting project. I just love your "voice" when you write! I feel like I am having coffee with you:)

    I just linky followed you!


    1. Karianne,

      Thank you so very much for you kind words! I was so tickled when I discovered you were my newest linky follower because darlin' I adore your blog! Now I'm going to go eat me a little bit of chocolate with my glass of water and diet coke while I sit here with my foot propped up. Let's just say I didn't get as much painting done today as I hoped! But my magazine stash is quickly becoming organized!
