It is October... what happened to August and September...
Looking out at the rain and beautiful colors mother nature
has painted my backyard, I have come to realize I am one
person and I can't do it all.
It has been eleven months of working on the exterior of
my log home. I have learned from all of this....
don't build such a huge house, don't build a gigantic deck to go
with the large house, don't create so many gardens on your ten plus acres.
I should be famous for the number of weeds I have pulled and I am not done yet.
As the weather turns wet and cold I will be starting on the inside.
My two little buddies had to be shaved down as they were developing matts and
I couldn't get a brush through their hair. So now they have new coats to keep them warm
while we wait for their fur to grow back.
Not spoiled at all....
They have been troopers through all the work on the house. They
had to greet all the workmen every morning when they arrived.
How I found time for painting I don't know. I think it was my
salvation and time to get lost from all that was going on around me.
A few of my new bookmarks.
and a few small paintings.
I have had time to think about life and what I want.
One thing for sure is I don't want a lot of "stuff". I am going to be downsizing
so I am going through everything and downsizing my belongings.
I have quietly been visiting all the blogs I follow just so I know what's going on with all of you.
Not much time to leave messages but am hoping to change that.
I have been trying to keep up with my walking, thanks to my Fitbit ( it reminds me all the time).
We had so many wildfires here this summer that walking had to be put on hold or inside due to the smoke.
I will try to be more "here on the blog" in the future.
Happy Fall everyone.
