Trying to keep busy so that I don't sink into
waning summer/vacation over/oldest daughter back in CA
Life is good.
I know it's true.
Still, it's hard to watch your baby bird
get on a big bird
3000 miles away.
To continue the tour I'm focusing on our hallway.
It's tiny but mighty.
The wallpaper has been in place for almost six years, but I still
I appreciate color and pattern and mixing it all up.
I wish I were more daring with this.
One of the projects on my to-do list is to paint the risers.
I keep saying this.
Maybe one day it will actually get done.
Or, I'll drive you all crazy and just keep posting about it.
The world is a hectic, chaotic place.
This election is driving wedges between family members and friends.
Home is truly where my heart is, shelter from the storm,
metaphorically and literally.
I hope wherever you are you are staying cool
and remembering to take some time for yourself.
Sometimes I think women forget to do this.
To pick up the phone and call an old friend.
To kick back and let your kids clean the bathroom.
To see how high that pile of laundry can grow.
You know, just for kicks.
Here's to a happy/lazy/fun-filled/summer-is-still-here weekend!
