I've decided to spend this day cleaning, sorting and finishing odd jobs like my front door. I will not be doing a whole lot of creating or sewing this week as I need to make some space in my small home. This is the new color of my front with one final coat to go on this morning.
Yesterday, at 6:30 AM we watched our daughter take off in a little plane on the first leg of a journey that will take her more that halfway around the world to South Korea where she will be teaching. We then made the 3 hour trip home with 2 cars loaded up with everything she was leaving behind. My drawing and painting space downstairs now looks like a messy storage room. I am planning to spend this week sorting and pricing for a yard sale and trying to find a space for the boxes that are 'keepers'.
I am really beginning to get into the world of texting as all my children and my husband have blackberries, and so they are able to text at no cost. At every landing on her way to Seattle yesterday--Montreal and Vancouver-- my daughter texted us about her trip. Finally, when she reached Seattle where she is doing some training before leaving for Seoul on Wednesday, we texted back and forth for a couple hours while she went for dinner and then a walk. What a world!
