Weekend babble

Tulips in my entryhall

Its been a crazy week of "to dos" around here and there never seems to be enough hours in a day.
Not complaining, but Dang! its hard to find blog time. I have two posts in my head that I have not had a chance to put together.
I have been working on several commissioned paintings as well as one that continues to explore my "opposing forces... in harmony...paradox" theme. LOL! That is a goofy explanation but I am just babbling today.
I also spent a great deal of time investigating preschools for my little one. She taught herself to read (wasn't me) so it seems like a waste of time to send her into another year of a school that is teaching letters and colors. This adds up to major $ but I think I have made my decision.
We are also about to start creating a studio in my basement. There is a bit of natural light but it doesn't matter. I paint at night mostly anyways and I would just have to bring the work upstairs in the a.m. to check colors.
This is not a quick project. Shelves have to be built to organize stuff better and a sink and lighting needs to be installed. My husband has yet to have two days off in row this year so finding the time has been impossible. This is about to change, so I am excited to finally have dedicated studio space.

What have y'all been up to?

I haven't been able to do what I really want to Winter will not leave us. I'm actually hunting for a round coffee table on CL. Round is hard to find. I'm sure your new studio will allow you to make more $ so you can pay for the school.

Hi Kerry, it sounds like madness. Isn't life just so busy?? It is crazy how every day there is this long list of tasks and chores and no time to get to the big projects. With my headaches, I can barely get the daily stuff done and projects pile up, so I can feel your pain.

A studio sounds amazing! You need a creative space.

It sounds like you have a bright little one in your house...all that school stuff is so much research!! Hope she gets settled in somewhere amazing.

Nothing makes me happier than tulips! Good luck looking for pre-schools. That is an exhausting process! :)
