If you've ever built a custom home then you know how busy I am right now! If not, then just trust me, I'm really busy!!
While this is a very exciting time for my husband and I, it is also time consuming, and filled with decisions and deadlines. We are walking that fine line between not regretting that we didn't get such & such for the kitchen or living room etc. and keeping our budget overages from becoming a run away train!
Tomorrow I go to pick out granite counter tops and meet with the lighting designer. We are in the process of designing our kitchen which continues to be a fluid work in progress. The walls went up today and apparently we lost a few inches on one side of the kitchen but gained about 9 inches on the other, which will now necessitate a reworking of the kitchen plan as we try to efficiently maximize the use of that space.
Meanwhile the rest of life goes on getting my son ready to head to the University of Arizona in a few weeks and getting my daughter her learners permit tomorrow and teaching her to drive.
I've been sneaking in some plein air watercolor sketching but haven't even had a chance to use my new French Resistance pochade box from Guerrilla Painters.
Despite the busyness I do have plans to begin a new painting based on this photo I took a few nights ago...
