I worked hard this morning, cleaning the house. I haven’t done a really good clean in well over a month, so this was a good thing.
After I was done, I treated myself to a lovely drink in the back yard where I took this picture of tree branches. I used Pioneer Woman's 'Seventies' action on it, making the sky a light pink. Then I added a texture I'd purchased from Joy St. Claire.
I was then visited by Blackie, who I also call Girly Girl. She was on the lookout for George who will chase her unmercifully. But Blackie can run faster and she has sharp claws. Blackie wasn't her original name. I think it was Bitsy or Biddy or something like that. My husband could never remember it and it was easier for him to call her the color she is, so it stayed Blackie.
Tomorrow we’re having friends out, one who is visiting from New Mexico. It will be good to see them.
The pink sky above reminded me of this VW commercial I saw several years ago. I hadn’t known who Nick Drake was until I heard him singing Pink Moon here.
And in answer to some of your questions about the house:
No, I don’t clean the third floor! On the third floor there are 3 more bedrooms. It’s mainly used as an attic. We have many of our things, still in boxes, in one of the rooms. And no, the house is not haunted, although a writer who resided here in the early 1900’s wrote a murder mystery while living here. William Edward Haines, who wrote The Black Doll, lived here in the early 1900’s.
Hope your day is a good one. Until later, my friends . . .
