Sunday Scenes on Monday, 6.2.14

Oh, my! What a day. Nothing earth shattering, just busy, busy, busy- followed by an unexpected aggravation. Two things I've learned over the past few years- 1.) Write a will (and be VERY specific in it) and 2.) Tie up loose ends as soon as possible because if you procrastinate it may become someone else's problem when you're gone. Okay, that's my rant for the day! Now on to my day-late Sunday Scenes :)

Yesterday was perfect winery weather. I guess other people didn't think so, though. It was surprisingly slow :(

Getting just a little bit of decorating done. I decided not to put the tv above the "fireplace" (it's fake!) as it fits perfectly on the dresser I refinished last summer. The curtains softened everything up a little. More mirrors will eventually be propped on the "mantle". (Is the mantle also fake if it's over a fake fireplace??!) And the photo directly above shows what will soon be my painting corner. Three good sized windows directly across from the easel will be perfect. I'm am now officially easel shopping again:)

And making for Baby G. has officially begun. Yay! 

What really made my weekend was lots of Peanut time. Here we are testing out the camera on my new phone. He doesn't look too impressed, does he? 
Well, that's it. Nothing too exciting going on around here. School will be out in 3 more days, so hopefully, after that, you'll see a lot more art making here :)

I'll leave you with this quote, which has nothing to do with my Sunday Scenes, but what the heck, I love it so I thought I'd share. It's by Maya Angelou, who passed away this past week:

 I’ve learned that no matter what happens, or how bad it seems today, 
life does go on, and it will be better tomorrow. 
I’ve learned that you can tell a lot about a person 
by the way he/she handles these three things: 
a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights. 
I’ve learned that regardless of your relationship with your parents, 
you’ll miss them when they’re gone from your life. 
I’ve learned that making a “living” is not the same thing as making a “life.” 
I’ve learned that life sometimes gives you a second chance. 
I’ve learned that you shouldn’t go through life with a catcher’s mitt on both hands; you need to be able to throw something back. 
I’ve learned that whenever I decide something with an open heart, 
I usually make the right decision. 
I’ve learned that even when I have pains, I don’t have to be one. 
I’ve learned that every day you should reach out and touch someone. 
People love a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back. 
I’ve learned that I still have a lot to learn. 
I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, 
but people will never forget how you made them feel.
-Maya Angelou (1928-2014)
