Do you ever get antsy? I sure do! And most of the time it takes me a few days (or decades) to figure out what is going on! I am a huge list maker. I have lists for my lists even, sometimes. And lo and behold, I do believe it is these crazy lists that are making me antsy! Because let me just say the options are plentiful and I am dearly blessed! So here to go along with my antsy status are some random antsy-esque noteworthy (as least in my opinion) items.
On Monday, Mr. and I loaded ourselves up and went to Knoxville. Why? To meet with my sweet niece who I've rarely seen in her lifetime. And it was an absolutely DELIGHTFUL day! Knoxville is a sweet little town, incidentally. Not really little, that is a term of endearment. (I'm southern) So here are some visuals:
A Riverboat, even!
Reconstructing this bridge.
A great walkway on the River. We were down by the football stadium at UT.
I love the mixing of old and new. And just look at the sky! It was truly a glorious day.
My niece Erin on the left, and me grinning ear to ear.
The camera man thinking he was an artist!
Erin and the Mr. ... Paul, my precious husband with his dimples blazing.
He is such a wonderful human being. And an even better husband.
I am so grateful for that!
Just the two of us.
Tuesday was a blur with grocery store and etc. --- but yesterday I began a new Chalk Paint project for the Rusted Periwinkle. We are going to "take our store on the road" to Metrolina in Charlotte so we need to get a lot accomplished by the first weekend of April. Here is the table I'm currently working on ... and I will keep posting the transition. I love giving furniture a new look --- always fun!
BEFORE - dark ...
and today I will paint the top Old White ... the transition will be ah-mazing. :-) I will post the after when that really happens! You should see the furniture paint list --- long. as. your. arm.
The Rusted Periwinkle has a page on facebook if you'd like to be a fan, feel free to like us! The more the merrier and it makes us feel loved! go here!!
And so ... on top of the normal things in Cheriville, there is also the matter of fasting/changing. I have dropped a little bit of weight but I've gained a huge bit of insight into some things food related. (as resource, I follow the Daniel Diet somewhat, Dr. Joel Furhman's Eat to Live, and personal instinct from 30 years of doing this.) As I continue on my journey to get healthy in honor of Jenn and Christian, it transitions into the whole lenten, spring cleaning season. It is always a beautiful time of year. And it always brings the things I am grateful for to the foreground so I can honestly let go of the junk and move forward on my personal growth. It is the time when I am able to hear the whispers best. I am listening now. I hope you all are enjoying glorious blue skies and sunshine!
