The living room at Soundcliff, transformed into temporary office...
Spring has definitely sprung in the Pacific Northwest. We’re seeing premature magnolia blossoms, tulips, daffodils, rhododendrons, cherry blossoms and more!
It definitely lifts the moods of everyone I can see. Gordon and I have been introducing color into our house, after 12 years of living in a house painted entirely Navajo White. After painting our living room wall a warm bricky red, we decided my office needs a red wall, too.
Bill Palmer masks the room in preparation for painting the office wallBill Palmer, our wonderful neighbor who is an exacting painter, agreed to spend an extra day painting my office wall if I would clear it out. It was a dare.
Bill Palmer, the amazing neighbor, painter, storyteller, father and raconteurThose who know me know that my office looks like a cycloned paper junkyard. Not any more.
What surprised me most was that I discovered (duh!) that I write hundreds of notes, to-dos, and names of people on small scraps of paper, then bury them in my piles. Having unearthed most of my piles, I now have a to-do list that may number 200 things, but it’s organizable!
Now both walls are red -- the house harmonizes! (Thanks again, Gordon/Bell!)This is revolutionary for me. Stay tuned to see how long it lasts…
