April 29, 2014


I've spent nearly every day since April 17th swapping the studio and our
main guest room. To say "I'm tired" would be a colossal understatement.

Handsome has been a huge help, but there is so much that I have to do
myself - like rearranging all the fabric and furniture in the new space.
(It's a good thing most of the furniture pieces are on wheels.)

This is what I (we) have accomplished so far in the new studio.
• Paint
• Flooring and molding
• Clean Window
• Shelves installed
• Furniture installed
• Restocking bolt shelves
• Refilling pattern cabinet
 But I was too tired to do anything in here yesterday. I went to Sarasota
for a hair appointment, and was happy to spend the morning relaxing
in a chair and being pampered. When I got back home, I took Tag out
onto the pool deck and we took a much needed (and appreciated) nap
in the sun. It was just what the doctor ordered. I feel energized today!

Handsome and I are going to assemble the "tower" of shelves for my
folded fabric and then I'll spend however long it takes to restock them.
I'm getting closer every day! We're (Handsome, Tag and I) hoping that
this project is finished by the weekend and our home is back to normal.

Wish me luck!
P.S. - I went to Panera's last night to visit with the girls. Four of us were the last to leave, and as we crossed the parking lot, dear Adele's ailing knee gave out and she fell down before I could catch her. She hurt her hand, hit her head on the pavement,  and cut her face in the process of breaking her glasses. Of course, she also hurt her knee further. She was bleeding and unable to get up so we called an ambulance for her. They cleared her to go home, but we called her son to come and get her rather than let her drive. She's going to be sore today, for sure. Adele is in her 80's (she'd kill me for telling you that), so falling is always a big deal. I tell you all this to ask you to say a healing prayer for her. Thank you.

That studio is looking really good.

Healing thoughts and prayers for Adele. Glad to hear she's not too badly hurt and that she was allowed to go home to sleep in her own bed.

Your new workroom is looking really good. Hope you can get it finished quickly so you can start using the space. I do hope that Adele is recovering quickly from her fall. Not a pleasant experience at any age.
