I don't usually post on the weekend but I have lots of free time to myself today. Kendall is with a friend, Max is at my parent's house and Breen is away in New Jersey for the day. It's been a long time since I had a Saturday to myself. There are so many things to do. Where to start?

Go to the gym
Sew (finish up aprons)
Make art
Take a long bike ride
Go to the Farmer's Market
Go to the grocery store
Check out some thrift stores for art finds

I made it through my first week of unemployment. It went quickly; I don't like it very much. My mind races ahead to worrying when I'll find something new and how long will it take. The bottom line is that this is a chance to look daily but also slow down a little and just be present with each day and the possibilities that it can bring. It just feels so challenging right now.

Yesterday, my mother and I totally redecorated Kendall's room and I can't wait until she finally makes it home sometime this weekend to see it. I hope she likes it as much as I do. It's amazing how you can totally change a look by simply moving the furniture around. Check out today's journal page here at the Painted House!
