The Digression- a planner for my sister
The open drawer holds my main planner and the drawers beneath all have journal fodder. :\
Now where did I leave my paint brush..Swirl with some left over White Opulence and what we get is what we get. I am already considering curtain options. I hope that particular diversion doesn't happen for a day or so! lol

|And a one and a two and a three!
So I decided to let the walls cure a wee bit longer and just get that last room done. This is a budget room so I will be using up what I have except for more primer. The quart that never got used will combine with a similar leftover paint as the room is smaller. I really am trying to empty paint cans! lol
It is looking like a busy few weeks are ahead of me but for fall I have high hopes of tweaking each room and tearing up the list that holds the final few things. Hopefully for the last time!!!

Happiness is having the last bit of barn cleaning in sight. It is kinda gloomy in the barn and I can't quite bring myself to follow the sunrise photo with the nightshade aspect of the barn.
Happiness is having the grass all cut but again copious swaths of dried cut grass all over the lawn doesn't make for pretty.
My dear friend Irmgard is also downsizing in her shop. She offered me an old paper storage cabinet. I hummed and hawed but I'm SO happy that I went ahead and got it. I assured the Rooster I had gotten rid of 2-3 other things so that he would help me carry it up to the art room.
A bit of ugly-
I will be putting all my stamps out on one layer of tray and categorized by type. whoo hoo! Stamping is gonna be so much more fun. :)
The best will always raise the happiness factor! Hopefully by the time the kids come for their visit this will have all had the final and best finale!
And happiness is counting my blessings. I may have struggled a bit with a blue funk but as I see my sister struggling with depression and dementia I am so happy to have my friends, my family, my health and my hobbies, and the ability/desire to pursue creativity.

We just finished a long weekend and the Rooster was in charge of the agenda. The main floor of the big barn was long overdue for cleaning.
But speaking of losing ones shingles...
I have neglected to follow the green juice detox lately. Things do get worse before they get better and in getting rid of blue funks and itchy eczema... well, the toxins do leave me through my skin and what with all that needed doing I paused the program. The blue funk has been replaced by blue skies and the breeze of ambition but I may have to rub my hands together for a bit of relief for one more day. Then its back on the green juice ladder if I don't personally want to lose anymore shingles! lol
