And I'm back. April, not the best month for me, is securely in the rear view and I'm back here in blog land with a happy face and a better perspective. Since it's been a hot minute I'm going to just be random here today with what's up in my world.
The big news is flooring. Oh kids, I wish I could articulate what a big deal this is for me. Living in a 30+ year old house the list of things that need to be replaced/improved/repaired gives War and Peace a run for its money and new flooring was not previously an imperative. What is down beneath our feet right now is so ugly that I won't even do a before pic. Hunter green......need I say more? No, I thought not. This year, however, we decided it was time to just do it and I feel like a kid waiting for Christmas morning. And because I can't make anything easy, we decided to paint the walls so that the whole place would have a new, fresh start.
I can't paint anything without getting it on me. Sorry Sarah.
And just to add a few difficulty points to the entire performance I've come down with a nice chest cold that is limiting my ability to be very helpful and annoying the dog to no end. He hates when I cough. Go figure. Tom, despite a great many work obligations, is making grand progress. I'll keep you posted on end results. (happy dance)
Is anybody else watching Outlander? I'm obsessed with the costumes, especially this jacket worn my Master Raymond.
Can you even?
And Game of Thrones? If there was a GoT drinking game where you took a shot every time someone was brutally, horrifically, tragically murdered you'd be unconscious by the end of the show. Holy cow. And, I just knew it. You know what I'm saying here, right? No spoilers, but you know. I know you know.
If you're following me on facebook and wondering why I'm posting random pictures every day, I've signed up for another attempt at 100 Happy Days. Basically, you take a picture every day of something that makes you happy and then post it on social media. I've tried before and failed, but I'm going to do it this time! (maybe) It helps keep my focus on a positive life and it's fun to see what others post. Maybe you'd like to join me?
And, of course there are these two.
If you could only see them together. Thick as thieves and sweet as can be. Always end the evening with hugs for each other. That fox backpack that Cal is wearing is sort of killing me. I might have to get one for myself to use as a knitting bag because it's okay to want a fox backpack when you're 58. The zipper pulls have little orange tails on them. Love.
And these two.
Emerson is reading to Cambria. My heart overflows.
That's it for this first Monday in May. Hope life is sending you arms full of flowers. Namaste. xo
