Glub, glub, glub

That’s both the weather and my ability to get our from under all the house stuff!   Gradually we are settling in, and most of the boxes are gone.  Most of the painting is done (except for the studio of course), and the lighting for the studio will be done after the painting. I can’t believe it’s a week since I blogged…ooops!  I have been finishing up all sorts of  house stuff, and converting my “With a Dash of Color” lecture from “hold up small samples at the front of a large room” to a digital presentation.  That has entailed taking photos of some of my earlier, traditional and contemporary style quilts, so I’ll share those before too long.  Betcha didn’t know I made all of ’em!

Until then, it is WET!  We’ve had quite a lot of snow, and for the past three days we’ve had days into the 40s, including one night that didn’t go below freezing.  The good news:  the driveway is no longer a skating rink/sled run.  The bad news, the driveway squelches and squishes it is so mushy!  And today it is pouring rain.

Camden Falls, March 7th, rain and snow runoff

When I took Eli to school, I decided to drive down to the harbor and, as expected, the Camden Falls were in full roar!


The upper falls were roaring!

You can see the driving rain if you look at the rocks on the bottom...those gray streaks!

Another look at the lower part of the falls

At the bottom hillside edge of the Camden cemetery, the road was flooded over—between melting snow, run off, soaked ground, and mounds of snow impeding the flow of water, it’s a bit of a mess out there today.

The water had nowhere to go on Route 105

They had a digger out to deal with moving the snow so the water had a chance of going away!

But the best bit…they’ve started to spray white primer on the ceiling joists, which will greatly improve the mood in the studio!

Spray painting the joists in the basement (aka studio ceiling) begins! WOOT!

    Looks as if things are moving right along. Too bad about the gloomy day. We got about 10″ of snow last night–which is good and bad. Good, because we didn’t have any flooding. Bad, because when he melts and we get more snow/rain later this week, we may have flooding. Keep your fingers crossed.

    And–anxious to see your digital presentation pictures. Everything seems to take so much time…that interferes with art projects moving forward.

    White ceiling joist primer is a move in the right direction. Find joy in the baby steps. Hugs!

    Melting snow means spring (and mud season!) coming soon. By the time the nice weather comes the house will be organized and you can get out to enjoy it, at least once in a while.

    I love a grey rainy day! Those falls most have a fantastic sound to them!

    The house is coming along, the weather is warming, and all is well.

    That will be a huge change in the darkness down there. It is going to be fantastic!
