I was never able to get anywhere near creating anything this week, but I thought I'd enter my very first art journal page from my little handmade WC journal for Artist's Play Room. This week the APR challenge was to illustrate a word and I remembered I used "Play" on this first page to encourage my grade-schooler to emerge--LOL!
When Caroline walked in yesterday her eyes got big and she laughed. My "always-looks-the-same" place is a mess--LOL!
I told her it was pointless to try to dust or vacuum in the living room or bedroom.
There are piles stacked everywhere.
Chairs, too. (I've kept one open by the table or Miss Crabby Pants cries because she can't sit and look out the window.)
I keep tweaking and moving shelves and supplies about.
Started moving a few things in the direction of the new bookcase a couple days ago.
The bedroom is a mess of stacks and piles, too.
The living room isn't the only room that is being majorly tweaked--LOL!
There's a bookcase in here, the wire cubes shelves, and my closet to deal with.
In the dark hallway I caught Miss Karma attempting to claim a satchel.
A girl wants what a girl wants, but this claim jumper will be booted out in short order. Well, maybe tomorrow--LOL!
The mess will get worse before it gets better. I warned Caroline that it may look pretty similar when she comes back in two weeks. She did an extra thorough job on the kitchen and bathroom...and even vacuumed up the dried cat grass that has been flying about in the wind out there for the last few weeks. Caroline showed me some pictures on her phone of her wedding (was a beautiful bride!) and told me where all they went on their honeymoon trip to Duluth. Happy newlywed young lady. :)
The long string of those perfect fall days ended yesterday with it near 90. Not that it wasn't a beautiful day. I guess I should say the string of open door and windows days ended for me. Still closed up today and will be for a couple days as predictions are around 90 degrees & possible thunderstorms for the next couple days. Was the prediction for yesterday, too. We got the heat but never saw a drop of rain and, so far, blue skies today, too. For now I am keeping it closed up and cool in here till the weather breaks again. Especially since I'm hauling things about and all. ;)
But today is definitely a recovery day and not a tweaking day. Since I am four days behind reading blogs and have over 100 emails waiting in my inbox...I will do my best to at least do some catching up online today. As long as my back holds out, anyways. Basically, I am either organizing or recovering from organizing lately--LOL! Ahh, but the vision I have of when this is all finally done...keeps this snail lady moving. ;)
Waves, smiles, and hugs from Fargo! :):)
