Last weekend

My Roma Tomatoes are starting to emerge!
I have been picking snow peas...and them immediately eating every last one. Well, Moxie gets a bite here and there. She races right over to the fence when I pick them!
I even got this beautiful purple radish! These were great in a salad I made.
We finally started painting the 'room with no purpose'. It was a dark shade of green, but we're going with a very pale yellow. So...primer coat #1. You can see that, as an added treat, the previous owners thought panelling would be a good idea for this wall. The wall opposite also has panelling, but we have a slider in that takes up most of the space. I hate painting in grooves. It takes much more time and paint.
The whole point of this project was that we had left over paint and primer, so it was an improvement to the house without spending money. But, the paint isn't going to go as far as it normally would because of the panel grooves. So, today, I will go over this second coat of primer with a third...since we had almost a full gallon of primer, but only a half gallon of paint. I actually enjoy painting...not it's still 'all good'.
Speaking of painting, just a different kind of painting, we went out with some friends we hadn't seen in forever this past weekend. A mutual friend of the artists in our foursome, was having a group show at a gallery nearby. So I got to get glammed-up. This is what I tend to wear when I want to feel like a city girl. Not sure why, maybe it's the bare shoulders? Or possibly the pointy shoes.
Afterwards we went out for pizza and wine and catching up. It was fun, but it sucks being the wet blanket who has to get up at 4 a.m. the next morning!

So that's what I've been up to. I am hoping to finish priming today. Maybe start painting. Maybe get into the studio soon. It is finally clean and just waiting for me to be ready to return. I'm not sure I ever will be, though, and it's making me sad. I need some inspiration!
