(Title to be read in your best RuPaul voice.) Good Monday to you!
We had a crew of painters here all last week. They finished on Friday and I am loving the changes. Between my two rooms for my One Room Challenge, the bedroom is 90% finished. To be fair, it was probably already 70% finished going into it, but it feels really good to have it looking like I’ve envisioned for so long. The den is maybe 40% there, but even that feels better than before. I’ll have plans to share with you this Wednesday.
In other news, we went to The Field Museum over spring break. The kids were into it, and I left feeling inspired in a way I hadn’t expected. I’m not sure it’s going to lead to a literal translation (taxidermy, gems, and mummies?), but the ideas are swirling and melding with things that were already on my mind (hey there, beetles). And the details in the architecture! Lovely, lovely.
Things are good all around. Calvin and I are Motherboy-ing it up, as per usual. We have co-written a call and response song together! “Calvin! Mama! Calvin! Mama!” I really ought to break out the ukulele and hit the recording studio (a.k.a. Snapchat).
p.s. Natural history museums are losing funding and fighting to attract new visitors. We’re lucky to have a world-class destination like The Field Museum in our own city. How’s that for an end to the random update of a blog post? Go visit a museum!
