Full Throttle


I have an extra level of craziness going on here as I’m already getting ready for the party on the 16th. (I’m expecting over 100 people! Are you coming? Sign up here.) Here is Morgan making fun of me as I try to (finally) start getting stuff up on the walls. She’s playing “lion” with my homemade corn husk wreath.

Also going on here today:

Load of lumber delivered for the deck work, which is an extension on the studio project I was able to do. I’m adding a handicap-access ramp and a roof over the top part of the deck. The sun beats in all those double glass doors and it will save me in a/c costs in the long run to cover that area so the studio is shaded. It will also make a more comfortable place for people to sit and/or eat outside and enjoy the view.

And I decided I was in the mood to paint the downstairs bathroom today, as if I didn’t have enough else going on! But, painting is best done when you’re in the mood. Otherwise, it’s just a chore. When you’re in the mood, it’s fun. So today, I’m painting.

The Slanted Little House

"It was a cold wintry day when I brought my children to live in rural West Virginia. The farmhouse was one hundred years old, there was already snow on the ground, and the heat was sparse-—as was the insulation. The floors weren’t even, either. My then-twelve-year-old son walked in the door and said, “You’ve brought us to this slanted little house to die." Keep reading our story....
