Turning the corner

You know how it feels when everything is in flux and you can't find a place to stand to look out and make a plan?  That's how it was for me yesterday.  In fact I awoke at 2:30 and fretted about details of our renovation for a few hours last night.  But today we've turned a corner.  We've found a plumber who can help us with some nitty gritty plumbing stuff.  And (hooray!) we've found a laminate flooring that will work and what's more, inspires us to make some colour and design choices for the kitchen.  This is a huge breakthrough.  Now that we've chosen a flooring, we can choose wall paint and tiles that will create a lovely space.  Now I have a vision in my head about how things can look.  Now I can be inspired to continue scraping and sanding and priming because I know what the road is leading too.  Here's a toast to turning the corner.

Plus, my sister has invited me to spend the weekend with her in Port Townsend, so I'll have an opportunity for a little break from the renovation routine.  


  1. You must feel very relieved...and free! Enjoy Port Townsend. It's a lovely place.

  2. Sometimes that happens you get an idea, glimmer of a life line then everything else seems to fall into place.
    So happy your taking some time off. Just what is needed.

    cheers, parsnip

  3. Have a wonderful weekend away from the sander! Glad some decisions are made so you can move forward. What an intriguing road into the mist - a great metaphor for your post.


I really appreciate your comments.
