I can’t remember the last time I joined the party at Pink Saturday, so I decided not to miss another chance to share with you a few of the pinks that have been in my world lately. I’d love to see yours, too!
It’s hard to believe almost two weeks have passed since I was here. I’ve reeeaally wanted to be, but Life kept happening… so I let myself go with the flow. I’m learning it’s much easier that way.
So what’s been going on at My Place? Here’s a peek…
Writing design guidelines for our local too-long-neglected historic district … and explaining them at a public forum
The old downtown district is where Renaissance Man’s office ended up after its cross-country move. We’ve seen a few improvements in the district since then, but we hope to see a lot more!
Taking walks to clear my head
The roses are beautiful right now. Look at all those blooms! The rose on the left is unlike anything I’ve ever seen. We had to severely cut back our plants this year, and I think this one came back from root stock. The shape is unusual – and its petals are thick and feel waxy. Absolutely gorgeous!
Looking for the perfect house plan
There’s still a For Sale sign in our yard, and we’ve had a lot of interest, but everyone has a house of their own to sell. Fortunately, we don’t have a deadline, but I’m thinking it’s about time to get more aggressive with the listing. The sooner we sell, the sooner we move to the farm! By the way, the perfect-for-us floorplan doesn’t exist, but we’re getting close to perfect on the exterior!
Downsizing: It never ends!
I added a couple of “pinks” to my Etsy shop…
My favorite project lately – the one that makes me lose track of time! – is this one…
Creating graphics for Dirty Faith
Renaissance Man’s new book, Dirty Faith: Bringing the Love of Christ to the Least of These, grabs me and won’t let go! There are so many great quotes and thoughts, and I’ve been busy creating all sorts of poster-like graphics that we’re using on social media. Here are a few “pinks”! They’re high-resolution, and I think they’d be great for both personal (college dorm anyone?) and church use. What do you think? Should we make them available?
What’s going on at Your Place? Has school started in your community? Did you take a Summer vacation? Is Fall peeking around the corner?
Leave a comment and tell me. I’d love to know!
I’ll be joining Beverly at How Sweet the Sound for Pink Saturday. Why don’t you do the same?
