"The way I see it, if you want the rainbow, you gotta put up with the rain." ~ Dolly Parton

Despite the sun this morning, we have had an incredible amount of rain, with more in the forecast. Now, I really don't mind rainy days, but I am enjoying this little burst of blue sky!

We took a break from household things this past weekend and traveled to Vermont to visit Alex and to attend my niece's college graduation - the last of the younger set. It was wonderful to spend time with family and to enjoy beautiful Vermont. We put unpacking on hold for a few days.

You may wonder why we are still unpacking, and actually, that is at a standstill at the moment.  The tower of boxes that still sit in the garage are 75% mine. Between soaping materials and studio supplies, they remain boxed until there is a place for them to go. The plan at the moment is to build a studio shed out behind our home. We have been talking about it more seriously now that most the house is settled and there is no way around the garage until those boxes are dealt with! 

The paint for our under TV cabinet has not arrived yet, so that project is still on hold. Another mixup to deal with - curtains. We have 9 foot ceilings, which require ordering curtains rather than just going to the store and buying them. I thought that I had measured properly, but when the bedroom curtains arrived, they were (are) too short. Living-room curtains were already on the way when I discovered this, so they are now being returned and longer ones ordered. I will improvise something for the ones already hanging in the bedroom. No complaints about such minor things to deal with. 

Welcome June!


  1. Settling in is so much nicer than moving out. (I too am ready for some sun.)
