I am just beginning to realize how hard I have been on myself at times.
I guess it takes stepping back from it a bit, to really understand.
Rocking a little girl to sleep on a sunny afternoon allows one to ponder these things.
I love having her little hands on my face, while she looks intently into my eyes, or her own reflection in my glasses. She is amazing.
I am hers two days a week. It's an experience that I wouldn't miss.
But the pre-brain surgery me would never have done it.
It would have taken me away from the self imposed work schedule that I had. Oh, the horror.
Tonight I came home and threaded my Schacht loom for whimsy's sake. Not for production. Not for retail. Not for an order.
Just for me.
What a concept.
Susan over at Avalanche Looms was kind enough to satisfy my curiosity about some of her work.
She told me to try it, see if it got me buzzed.
Well, it did.
I didn't have time today to stay with it, and I can't wait until I do. Thank you, Susan. I am smitten.
The kitchen is a mess, but I can see the potential.
The half bath is now officially in its new place.
There's an awful mess to clean up, but it's done. I bought a new toilet, but the midget sink is the same......it was hard to find in the first place.
I could have gutted this old pantry, and put in a bathroom right out of Country Living,
but somehow we all know that's not really me.
Instead, while you are sitting on the toilet, you get to admire some of my stash.
C'mon, you know you love it.
It rained today, it seriously rained.
I am not going to talk about the SNOW on the ground as we speak, nope.
I'm going to show you the lovely spring downpour we had today instead.
My granddaughter Gabby was helping me in the studio, and she took about 30 pictures with my camera. And like me, out of a slew of photos, I take one that is just right.
This is hers.
