I have arrived in Ohio! The drive on Monday was a little unnerving since there were a few strong gusts and lots of blowing snow, but it's over now. Serephina and Khaleesi handled the trip well enough, but Ofelia... well, she didn't do so well. She ended up wetting my bed at one point and… Continue reading Not yet settled
Each morning I look out my bedroom window at the flowers and am amazed at the new ones that have come out, seemingly overnight. I'd forgotten how lovely western North Carolina can be when spring finally appears.

Packing up my… Continue reading Where did the time go?
I'm so excited! I will be painting with Kilz tomorrow morning, then the colors on Thursday. If all goes well, I should be done with the walls no later than Friday, then I can start on the floor. I am running a little late on that, but I discovered that porch paint will work well… Continue reading I’ve rounded the corner
