I spent most of yesterday prepping Scooter's room/the guest room for painting. Almost every room in the house is a disaster area. Today I got the trim painted, masked, and one coat on the walls. I'll finish up tomorrow and start putting the room back together.
While I'm moving stuff around, I keep finding things to get rid of. We have SO much stuff and we really want to simplify things around here. I try to get rid of 10 things a day either to the donation bag, recycling, or garbage.
Last night I finished spinning and plying the carded fibre from the workshop I attended with the Kawartha Handweavers and Spinners last month.
Remember this stuff?
Hence, one source of the aforementioned 'stuff'. This stuff won't be discarded though. Hopefully some special knitting or spinning project will intrigue me enough to use it.
And finally, this has been an exceptional year for the peonies in our garden. We have several varieties that bloom at different times. I have had a vase of then on my kitchen table for about 3 weeks now. And the tight buds I picked back then are starting to bloom now. As the blooms finish and start dropping their petals, I replace them with new ones from the garden. The scent is intoxicating.
