Eau de Fresh Paint

It’s day three at the new abode and I’m sipping my first home brewed cup of tea while sunlight streams through the uncovered windowpanes. Body has put the brakes on, so its a good day to catch up on all things social media.

Lovely to see the sun; it has been overcast and stormy up until now. Day one of the move, a major storm system blew in midday knocking out the hydro. Too dark to safely continue, we had to halt the proceedings. The next two days also brought rain and finally, a break in the intense heat.

The scent of fall is on the air this morning – a reminder that the long winter ahead will give us plenty of time to settle in. Our kids descended en masse yesterday, ensuring that all the essentials are in place, so we are good.

So much to share about our home, but that will have to come later. As you can see, the dogs are happily discovering their new hunting ground.

In the meantime, I wish to extend a warm thanks to all who have continued to post and contribute to my weekly challenge. Sorry I was unable to return a quick response.

Permission to write, paint, and imagine are the gifts I gave myself when chronic illness hit - a fair exchange: being for doing. Relevance is an attitude. Humour essential.

      1. I am. I was dehydrated and developed an infection. Actually good that I went in because they said I wouldn’t be able to undergo surgery until that clears up. So I’m on the right track for healing.


  1. Good to hear you are moved in. That process is such an exhausting one. Taking a break with a cup of tea sounds like a perfect idea! Sorry I wasn’t able to participate this week. I had some inspiring ideas and then, you know, life happened. Days blended in together. I am impressed you are taking on a move amidst the pandemic! Sweet photo of your dogs 🙂
