I am very saddened by the death of MJ. A commenter on my blog said “I am in utter disbelief that this is happening. It doesnâ€™t even seem real, but more surreal and not true. I am hoping itâ€™s some promo stunt to promote some secret new album but realistically, heâ€™s gone.” That’s exactly how I’m feeling. I’ll have more to say on Monday. Until then, here’s The Week in Pictures.
This week has definitely kept me on my toes. I spent the first half putting in 12 hour days moving and painting and the second half going to meetings, designing more blogs and catching up on client work. And now, I am sitting in Reno!
New Office. The first room in the house that I’ve been working on is my office. It’s the one area that I need to be completely functional by July 1st so I can carry on with business! I did the walls all matte white and there’s a thin strip of black trim along the upper half that I’ll photograph soon. The room is very empty at the moment, but the second I am able to lug in the rest of the furniture up the stairs, you’ll get a tour of the outcome!
Albina Press. One of my favorite places to have meetings is at is Albina Press and surely, you can see why. Isn’t this the most beautiful cup of hot cocoa that you’ve ever seen?! I was in awe watching them painstakingly craft this masterpiece on Wednesday.
Black Walls. I’m completely consumed with finishing the bedroom for Lee & I which is going to be matte black with white trim. Auntie Nubs spent an entire day helping me get the first two coats finished and soon we’ll be moving onto the all white trim. I’ve never had a black room before, but this was all the inspiration that I needed.
Friendly Skies. I found out about MJ passing right as I was finishing up packing for Reno. I didn’t have time to grasp that he was really, truly gone. Being on the plane up in the clouds gave me a chance to think about him. How can someone that always seemed so much bigger than life die so suddenly?
Hello, Reno. This is my reality for the next four days. It feels good to get away. I am here for my Grandma & Grandpa’s 60th wedding anniversary!!! Pretty amazing, huh? I love them to death. They don’t age. Both are 80+ years old, neither use a walker and they have more energy than us! I’ll take the secret elixir that they must be drinking and bottle it for us mere mortals.
I apologize for the lack of updates this week. It’s bound to be a bit quiet around here next week as well while I continue traveling and then finish my move. Thanks for understanding.
How was your week?
