it's so gloomy here (and still raining) that I have been framing and moving around artwork, trying to freshen up the look of the inside of the house, since we never see the outside anymore. We all went for a walk for the first time in 2 weeks yesterday (the kids were in the double stroller all wrapped in plastic.) I need some sun, pronto! Vitamin d is depleting as I type this. We are like the kids in that ray bradbury short story that only see the sun one day a year. God, what a sad story that was, now that I think of it.
And over the holidays I finally caught up with the talented amy ruppel, who I see way too infrequently, for her being in town and all. We exchanged holiday gifts and we received this lovely owl encaustic from her. The four owls are our little family. So wonderful, thoughtful and extra cool. I am really digging the new way she is framing these out as well, they really project out from the wall, like about 3-4".Very, very cool.
So, it's looking pretty good on the walls around here, but the floors are a totally different issue, how much laundry/toys/books can we actually have laying around? Well, it turns out a whole heck of a lot.
