Some of the Things I've been up to....

Good Morning!
Okay, I know....
I'm sorry...
really....
I'm sorry!
It's been way too long I know!
Actually I couldn't believe it when I saw the last day I posted.

So forgiveness is in order.
You know....
the good book says,
that's good for  you to do!
Cleanses the soul!

So some pics of the new digs...

The start of my studio...


 The Front Stoop...

Back Porch pics...
I work and read a lot out here...
Still trying to find room for dishes...
(Thank goodness they don't mold!)
The Kitchen...



I've been driving around my new little town here capturing some pics ....
It is gorgeous here in the Fall....
This was out when I was yard salin' last Saturday....
Of course I had to meet up with baby Kash and treat him to Starbucks...
And I truly do have a lot to share with you.
I've really been trying to get moved into my new place.

This pic was taken sitting out on my new little stoop...
The new Hoosier Cabinet I bought for the kitchen...
I've been wanting one for years!

Been workin' in my journals....
Doin' a lot of walking down on the River Walk here...
 I take my art journals and writing down there and hang out...
Khloe comes with me...
This is the dog that our Lost Soldier boy and Tory picked out at the pound 9 months before he was killed.She's pretty special
Trying to salvage linens....

I'm still washing!
(Tons had to get thrown out. Sad Face!)

Went to the Southern Festival of Books...
Had a delicious French Crepe from this food truck...
And lunch at the Provence Cafe that is housed right inside the
Nashville Main Downtown Library...
Yum!

Went to some lectures....
Met a fellow blogger....
Hi Betty!!!
Can't wait to catch up again some day soon!

So this post is getting a little bit too long....
so I will write more later.

Thanks for not giving up on me.
I'm slowly getting back to my old self.
Scary thought.
I know!
Hugs!
