The day we closed on the house, we walked across the street to become members of the Tennessee Valley Art Association. Because how cool is it to have an art museum for a neighbor? (seriously cool in case you don’t know)
haha it’s right on the wall in the hall up high
Every year they host a Member show where TVAA members submit their work to be shown in a group show. Ellie and I have pieces hanging across the street right now!
Soft sculpture! Fine Craft is a Thing.
The Tiger. Ellie enjoys watercolor.
Almost didn’t make it. Hi5, me.
It’s Tomato Sandwich Day! There’s a big tent at the courthouse with lots of people eating tomato sandwiches. The tomatoes were provided by 4H.
I am 100% tickled by this. Also my lunch was delicious.
I really should be putting things away. Instead, I’m migrating to a new book (aka planner). It’s amazing how puffy these things get. The one on the top is everything since January. The one on the bottom is new in its plastic wrap.
Old on top, new on the bottom.
Lady Bird is doing much better.
In the den.
She’s mostly eating and takes a new heart medication twice a day. She’s going back to the vet this afternoon to make sure it’s working. Our new vet is getting to know us very quickly.
One of these days I’ll be picked up enough to show some of the house. But not today.
This year’s mug is from WheezieWorks. Ellie prefers cat-themed mugs.
PS I went through and found all of the mug pictures since 2008, tagged them, and made it so you can search “father’s day” or “mug” and find the whole collection.
Last week about this time, the moving truck was stuck in the mud.
There was a whole lot of rain in a little bit of time. Surprise!
One of our good friends helped it get unstuck.
You’ll have a yard you love in a year. I promise.
It’s a good story now, but at the time I was very stressed, very sad, slightly hysterical, and feeling like I would never ever get away.
Now I’m feeling like I will never be finished with boxes. Never never ever. So I’m just taking a minute to put my feet up and post.
The view from my room to Ellie’s.
Today’s the day!
Everything I own is Delicate and Important. And it all seems to be marked fragile…
