Another week and I didn't get half of the things, I had planned, done. We are going camping for the weekend on the same spot, so hopefully so big wind storms will come our way again.
I started arranging things in the room, still need to paint the walls and then start on the mural, but I wanted to see how things look. I just threw some flowers in the baskets, later I will do some that match the room, but they are baskets from the flowers that were sent to us and I want to keep them as a memory of Danielle and the wonderful friendships from those who gave us support when we needed it. The long crate on the shelf was also filled with beautiful flowers, and now it will be filled with beach flowers.
I was going to put my chaise on the far wall, but that is where the painting will go and I want to be able to look at it when I am drawing or relaxing, so I think I will move my chaise and table to the other side. I may put her shelf and things on the wall to the right, which you cannot see, but it has a lot of space to hang the framed photo collages, that her friends did for me. Or I may just hang one at a time and change them out, something I can decide on after I paint. The fan light is new, I love how it has a nautical look.
Each Friday I put up a photo and saying, on Danielle's Facebook page. Facebook will leave a page up, if you ask, in memorian. It is something I do for her and for me. This week, I made a heart shape on the beach with red brick stones. While I was building it into a heart, I messed up the sand and when I saw the photo, I noticed a shape, so I enhanced the outline a bit;)
On a lighter note, Bean is still Bean, he wants to play all the time. His new thing is water, before he avoided it, now he wants to play in it and with it. I can only imagine how he will act when he gets out of the car tomorrow and see he is at camp.
And a blast from the past. This is me with my nephews, on top of Mt. Monadnock in NH. Before we had our own kids, we took our nephews camping and hiking with us. I was hoping my son and Nicholas would be coming camping with us, but he is busy with school and work, so hopefully he will slow down before summer is over.
