Peeking through the clouds

 Peeking through the clouds is warmer weather. I can smell it in the air. On Saturday it was 68 degrees. Yes, only one glorious day but I know more are on their way. Buds are showing here and there. The tree frogs are croaking again. Ah, how I love the Pacific North West. I know too soon the spring rains will be here for 3 months. It is one of the downfalls of living here. The peek of spring is worth it.

 With spring comes the urge to refresh the house and turn the chaos into something more manageable. I have decided to change a few small things in the studio. Rearrange my work space, my drawers can be much more functional than they currently are.
 The house is still arranged from the holidays. The decor is long since gone, just a few days after Christmas but the annual arrangement is still in place. I am a creature of habit that craves change. I don't know if it is from the 27 years of world traveling with my husband in the military. Or just me loving the adventure of something new? All I know is that it is time for a bit of fresh air inside and out.

 In between all this fresh air rearranging. LOL I need to create a few paper projects for up coming birthdays. I am making things quick as I have to get the studio back to function mode. Onto bigger projects. I need to pick out some paint colors. I want to start painting the walls and a few pieces of furniture as well when the weather warms up. This is a good size home, with high ceilings so this will be quite the task. Good thing hubby is tall and my daughter in law is 6'2 as well. Perhaps I can bribe her with pot roast to come help? LOL

The songs of sleep are creeping up on me.  This old gal must get to bed. The day waits for no one as Daddy used to say.

\outl0\strokewidth0 \strokec2 Hi there. I was browsing the net when I came across your blog with you introducing yourself as "Phillane". I clicked on it immediately because all my 28 years of existence, I have never met anyone with the exact same name as myself. So hi there, I am Phillane (too) and I am from Singapore! It's really nice to know that I am not the only one with such an indifferent name :) Love, Phillane }

Hi Phillane there are a few of us actually. Phillane means friend to mankind in case you didn't know.
Bless you.

Thank you Marlene. I love your sweet space as well. I only wish I could decorate like you can.

Thank you Tracy, I know I have to be careful what I post about the temperatures with so many friends in the frozen lands! LOL
