Hello Friends! We survived Irma with very little drama here. We lost power about an hour and a half after my last post. We were ready and thankfully our power was restored just about 30 minutes before the 48 hour mark. We only lost a few leftovers in the fridge and didn't sustain any damages to our home. We're very grateful as many others are still suffering from the aftermath, our prayers remain with them each day.
After the storm passed we spent the week de-storming, not sure if that's even a thing but there were supplies that needed to be relocated and schedules to get back in order. I was very grateful that I was able to keep my travel plans for the 16th of September to Virginia to visit our twins at the monastery. They are both doing well and it was so nice to see their beautiful faces!
After my quick trip to visit our twins then life was busy and we were off to visit family in Colorado. Since we've been back I've been busy purging, decluttering and organizing and today we set to the task of painting the interior living spaces of our home. I haven't had much time for creative endeavors but I did finish a project before our trip to Colorado. You may remember an abstract painting project that I started months ago. My daughter Sofia really liked the idea of my turning it into a bag so she asked if it could be hers when I finished it. I finished just before our trip to Colorado and gave it to her as an early birthday gift, she had her sweet sixteenth this year while we were in Colorado so it was an extra special gift. With all the busy-ness we finally had the chance of having a little photo fun with it last Saturday so here's a few photos of the finish...
The painting party has begun!
This is a fairly large project and honestly I've been procrastinating quite a lot with the decluttering in an attempt to avoid the prep work that's involved with painting! But my dear husband was at my side helping me and we got quite a lot finished today, only about a dozen or so more surfaces to go!
Until next time, have a very
