A couple of things to smile about today.

The gorgeous color right outside my craft room window.

And I'm on track for finishing the painting in one of the girls rooms today.
I would jump up and down about that, but I'm too tired from all the painting.

So far...

After a crazy busy week and dealing with walls that are not quite square & plumb in this house, the girls rooms are about 80% complete.  Thank goodness our friend built houses before and knows how to deal those sort of issues.  If it were just me doing this, the girls would have half done rooms to live in.

  So after waking up this morning feeling the way I did, I made a proclamation that the the weekend would be free of any room redo work.  One must know when to take a break.  That way everything will turn out just as expected in the end.

I'm going to go find something to do with yarn.

Lots of busyness...

A bit of a break has been taken here from the blog.  Taking a step back to prioritize things, getting ready for our yearly school tests for the girls and at the last minute I decided to go head on into a remodel/redecorating project for the girls in their rooms.  I have never claimed to make sense at times.

The last two days have been full of saws, nails, wood, primer, etc.  And lets not leave out the many times Glenn, myself and a very talented friend who is helping us, were standing in the rooms shaking our heads trying to figure out what in the world the builder of this house was doing during the building process.  I might have even said a bad word or two.  The construction part is nearly finished and the painting will begin soon after.  I thought this was only going to take a day or two.  Yeah.

Don't worry.  Pictures will be shared.  :)

Also in the news today.  I have been featured on the blog Quilt Story for the quilts that I made the girls for Christmas.  It's very sweet of Heather and Megan to feature them on their blog.  Make sure you go by their blog for lots of inspiration.  It's wonderful!

Lots to do today.  More construction, getting ready for testing starting tomorrow and trying to get a handle on the mess that is all over this place right now.  Drives me crazy.
