Ah summer. I find this time of year very inspiring, maybe because its bright, warm and the days are long. I feel freer during the summer. Less burdened. I'm sure many of you also find that living is easier in the summer, which is probably why there are cliches and songs and poems all with this same theme.
My pages seem to be brighter too, but maybe not.
Maybe I am just under the magical spell of the summer heat and humidity and the fact that I am now on my summer school break. Oh, to not have to get up at 4:45 AM.
I showed you this painted background last week.
Here's how I finished it off.
So I need to decide what I want to do today. Oh such problems-ha-ha.
So several years ago we needed to rebuild our deck as the underneath supports were rotten and if we didn't rebuild it, it would have collapsed. Probably (not so good) with me on it. The deal was, I'd get a screen porch when we had to rebuild the deck. You can see the floor hasn't worn so well, but I bought this fun little rug and some new pillows at Target the other day and now the porch has some color and I think its looking pretty good. Love the little pop of color it gives the space.
If I get ambitious I'm going to rent a floor sander and strip the floor and then paint it.
And if I don't get ambitious, then it will look this way for another year.
That's it for me today.
Come back soon.
