Sunday Morning Check In

IMG_7449I am watching the sunrise from my living room. The bright sun is streaming through the windows illuminating stray drywall dust that has settled on every surface reminding me that it is time to spend some time cleaning. It will happen, sooner rather than later. I completed painting the master bedroom yesterday. A few touch ups here and there and the painting utensils can be put back into the painting supply box.

It feels like this has been a long haul – four full months of updating the studio flooring, dry walling a couple of bed rooms and painting the entire house. Colin and I look forward to having everything back in its place and enjoying a bit of time relaxing – maybe.

I have been keeping busy with a new Kantha piece and I am now working out the finishing. Stay tuned for some glimpses of progress, however the full piece is destined for the book and will not be published till then.

Whenever the day’s schedule allows, I try walking to clear my head. The other day I set out in windy and cold conditions which changed to snow within minutes. April had arrived on March 31st… a few minutes later I stood by the lake edge (see image above) to check for candle ice, but the way the ice is melting this year I don’t anticipate last year’s phenomena.

IMG_7452This image was taken on my way home about 20 minutes after the snow fall, blue sky with lovely clouds. I love the panorama feature on my phone to capture the sweeping vistas of the prairies.

How quickly the sky can change. I arrived home, took my coat off and looked out the window to see dramatic changes through the living room windows:

IMG_7455…clearing within five minutes to show off the hills across in perfect Golden Hour light.

Well, that’s the weather report for this week from Buffalo Pound Lake, SK. 😉

Back to moving furniture, installing closet shelving and maybe finding some time to solve the finishing issues with the Kantha hanging. Never a dull moment here. Enjoy your Sunday, everyone!
