Happy Sunday everyone.
Can you believe it is already the 12th of August? Where has time gone this year!
And this year… do you know what the 12th of August means?
2 days until Book Release day.
Which means… I am basically a bit of a basket case over here.
And I am gearing up for a week of sharing all things book related to celebrate with you.
AND I am so excited to finally be able to start to share more about the book
and some of the photos and stylings with you.
But there is of course more to the week than just book news- it is random weekend folks.
Which means it is this and that and anything else all wrapped up into one.
And this week… was a bit of a strange one.
Between howling in the middle of the night and smoky skies,
Have you ever been sound asleep and then you hear a dog howling in a high pitched howl/cry/not sure what is going on… and then all of a sudden someone turned the volume up and it is crazy with a ton of howling and screeching? Sweet Pea was a bit of a nut last night when they started up.
And there has been a coyote spotted running through our yard several times this week. And in the middle of the night- the entire pack starts howling and chattering away and it is not something that sounds fabulous. It makes you want to yell out the window to shoo them away and save whatever poor creature they are after.
The coyotes seem to be around every year about this time- but usually we just hear them off in the distance. Their pack seems to be close by this time.
Fire season brings terrible air quality. Every time.
And it has been this way most of the week this week again.
Thankful that they are making progress on the fires and hopefully will have them out soon
and everyone stays safe.
I have a gazillion things to paint right now- and one of them might surprise you. I am refreshing our door jambs. Exciting news right? New paint, new caulk and new wood where the old needs to be replaced. Getting ready for an exciting install that has to do with doors. (like those French doors in the dining room)
I am literally so excited I can hardly stand it. Kind of how I felt about my new vacuum when I got it. haha. Sometimes it is the little things that float your boat. I will keep you posted on what we are having installed and why I am dancing over here in another week or so.
Another fun project… ordering a couple new chandeliers for the house. I do have one in every room- but some are up for replacements that fit the space or new look better. And of course will be sharing all the finds here with you.
And stay tuned for an
