lots of links and a poster, or finally IN the studio

So I have a friend, Manelle Oliphant who does amazing posters for her local playhouse, The Empress Theatre.(Check out her poster for See How They Run). So, as I secretly want to be like Manelle, I am copying her. Shortly after we moved to Ruston, I put myself in contact with the The Dixie Center for the Fine Arts which houses the plays performed by The Ruston Community Theatre. I finished my first play poster this morning.

hovel rhymes with shovel

How is it that summers lend themselves to endless and seemingly insurmountable tasks? Mine are all happy tasks (nearly all), not a source of what will inevitably sound like complaining. Know, however, that I am not complaining, and am grateful for the opportunity to modify, improve and beautify our living space.
Right now there is still what I have affectionately termed "the peek-a-boo hole" in the wall between the dining room and the master bathroom. Niel and I worked on it all last Saturday but didn't quite get it all the way filled in. And so the list of "we'll get to it next Saturday" grows longer.

I took off all the cabinet doors in our kitchen yesterdsay and this morning in preparation to paint them. Luckily this project won't require as much sanding as it could have. All the top cabinet doors were already sanded. Should I feel bad that they were once white, and someone sanded them, and I am going to paint them white again? Um, NO, because I think the wood like it was looked horrible. (I will hopefully post some before and after pictures soon.)

The shower floor in the master bath is still in need of new tile.

AND the yard needs to be mowed, but first, all the dog poo around our hovel needs to be attended to with a shovel. (I'll spare the picture on that one.)

it bites

I vote that it is both annoying and WRONG when mosquitoes buzz into your living room and proceed to bite you in the comfort of their new home.
