How is it possible more than a week has gone by, an insanely crazy busy, out of control week, since I last posted, sighhhhhhhhh…..
I dunno. Er, actually I do. I had my first Stella & Dot party, and decided to have it at my casa. And in my true form, as I always do before having people over, I decided the fireplace in my house was in the wrong place and I should retile the kitchen. Nah, not really, but almost. I repainted the house, not quite the whole house, but about 78.58% of it….a good portion of it was the ceilings. On the flip side, all I have left is the kids rooms and laundry. It started last Sunday, late afternoon, with the hall bath, two hall ways, and finished the day with the super tall entry way and half of the living. Over the next few days I finished the rest of the living, dining and kitchen, I think I slept in the same clothes, but I finished…hawwwwesome. Had most of the lighting changed out, wires behind the tele hidden in the wall, shades hung, yard landscaped, and I finally tackled two large pieces of art I had had in my head for almost a year. Nothing like a small party to get motivated. It just lead to a successful party, and one tired momma. But all smiles in the end, yea!
Here is the thing, painting is, for some crazy reason, therapeutic for me. I can’t explain how my mind rolls and rolls while I am. SOme of my best ideas come when I am. I told the mister this, and his response ‘I know it is, that’s why I am letting you do it’, pssssh….
I think I let pandora run so much that even it was running out of songs. One group that always pops up and plays is Lifehouse, and I truly adore their music. Love their lyrics…
Whatever It Takes
One of my fav’s – From Where You Are
This is a cover for Keane’s Somewhere Only We Know ‘Live’. My next Music post is on Keane and I heart this song, so I had to post it 🙂
To many more,
*I will be guest posting soon over at Fingerprints on the Fridge for my Fish Scale Wall Art, stay tuned!*
