So "How was your Mother's Day weekend?" Mine was excellent! This was the first Mother's Day in I don't remember when, that I got to spend it with my mom. She is 86 and she has been a "Mom" for 63 years, my brother is way older than me.............and I don't think I have spent half my life with her on Mother's Day.....so we had a lovely day, and she could actually have dinner with us. Another surprise arrived at the front door that morning in the form of my middle child................I kind of thought she may surprise me as she was in Vancouver visiting her cousin and just put the two trips into one.
|This is "Kitty"! Don't ask me how she got that|
name, just happened.
|Kitty and her Dad.......he really misses his kids when |
they aren't around........maybe one day.......here's hoping!
So back to the studio, floor is laid after much time wasted trying to get the glue to dry enough so that they could start laying the floor......so it took a little longer than expected........but finally mid-day it was complete and I could finally get working on putting up the curtains. On Sunday when we went to the beach, I found a branch and thought it would make the perfect curtain rod, so I hauled it home and cleaned it up, and Monday I sanded it and peeled off bark.......managed to get a touch of "heat stroke" sitting with my back to the sun........not to swift.........so I was not feeling too well that evening. But Tuesday morning I awoke feeling somewhat "normal" ....we won't go there!
Floor is laid, curtains were up with a few consults with Pam and Jane via telephone......and by putting our heads together and scrounging around in my collections I pulled off a rather unique curtain rod. Sorry I didn't get a good photo will have to try again......
So after all that, it was a gorgeous day and time to hit the "beach". I had said to the Hubs the other day when someone asked if we were "vacationing" over here and we said no we live here.......that " we took a permanent vacation from our life and now we are on holidays every day!" and its so true living here. Each day is like being on vacation.......its just too bad I don't get a paycheck! Must do something to remedy that very soon! So that's been my life in a nutshell for the last 5 days and on that note....I hope you are having a fantastic week, and getting into all sorts of adventures and crafts.....see you soon!
