Anj, are you able to be outside more?
Good morning, Anj. Has your weather warmed up a bit? Hopefully, you are able to be outside more now without freezing. I love the nice warm sunny days--but not the super hot ones either!
My roses and most of the plants I cut back after the freeze are starting to really leaf out and grow back now. Still waiting to see if a couple are going to come back. We have had weather in the 80's, but they are saying it will cool back down next week. I am concerned because we SHOULD be getting rain now--and we're not! That could mean a hot, dry summer and extra conservation. Always hate it when they say we can't water our yards!
I sorted through my painting books. Trying to thin them out a bit. Have about 30 that I don't think I need anymore. Either I've already made the projects I liked that were in them, or nothing in them really appeals to me anymore. Many of them were either given to me or I picked them up at YS or TS. As I went through my books, I was amazed at how many had items I had made but no longer have. Either have given them away as gifts or just got tired of them and passed them on.
I met a couple of friends for lunch yesterday, and one of them brought me the most wonderful wooden paint rack. Says she knows she won't be painting as much as she used to, so doesn't need it. Not sure yet where I'll put it as it won't fit on my countertop and I'm afraid to sit it on the floor because the new puppy could have lots of fun chewing up paint bottles! What an image that would be! LOL I have a little table I might just sit in there and put the paint rack on that. It is like a carosel with all these holes to slide the bottles in. Don't know if I even have that many paints, but I couldn't turn it down! Ha ha Wish I'd gotten it before I bought the canvas wall hung one that is such a hassle! Isn't that the way things go? LOL
Well, my coffee is ready, so I'd better go get a cup. Hope your back is feeling lots better and that you have had some painting time.
I want to cut a few pieces today. I found three or four Easter patterns I want to paint while I was going through the books. Better get busy, little GD is coming for the afternoon. ;o)
