Oh the many, many topics that could be included in this post! It seems that we are in the middle of so much right now and life is in constant flux. It’s ok. It’s hectic, but it’s good…growing, shifting, changing, expanding (quite, quite, rapidly in the case of my waistline), reassessing, reworking, reevaluating…good stuff, strong stuff. When we are in the middle of it all, it seems like it will last a forever, but I know that in the grand scheme of things everything is really coming along and we are making regular, steady progress.
I don’t remember if I mentioned it or not, but a couple of months ago, Steve and B the Builder put some drywall up in two separate areas. With the electric already roughed in and no need for plumbing, they are the only two places that we can close in at this point. The walls sat for a while, as summer kept us busy with other projects, but in the last couple of weeks, Steve has been working hard to get at least one section ready for painting. And after hours upon hours of filling in screw holes, mudding seams, sanding and finally priming, they are now ready to go. Paint! There will be actual paint! It’s pretty amazing really.
First up is the play area and a small wall in the adjoining dining area.
Another “in progress” that surfaced again the other day…
A knitting project that I’ve been working on for quite some time now. It seems this is going to be a very long-term project. I’ve slowly been adding to it with any bits of yarns that fit my criteria, yarns left over from other projects, supplemented here and there with a skien that I pick up on clearance. This project is quite the yarn hog! It’s going to be a while yet before I’m able to complete it. But it’s exciting whenever I get to add in a new little bit. And hey, if anyone out there has any wool yarn in shades of brown or pink that they are just dying to get rid of, well, you know where to find me!
