how can i put this…

thanks for these images,

all i can say is it’s such a relief to be here, even if only for this brief shining moment!

there’s just no way to say it with finesse…it’s tax time and this procrastinator is looking at an HnR block appointment tomorrow at high noon.  the only thing that could cheer me up before i dive into that un-fun pool was coming here to say hi. after this, i’ll be almost free and can’t wait to get my life back.  it’s funny how much of life’s little pleasures have to do with blogging.  it’s just not the same having to run in and out with short quick hellos. i miss my friends and getting energy from the creativity and beauty you share every day! ok so see you soon then, off i go!

April 13, 2010. Decorating, Friends.

    Hey, I am totally with you. This tax-time squeeze is totally killing my weekend and my life in general. Just plow though and get it over with (I am talking to myself as well) then back to fun. XO

    My mother always used to say, roll your sleeves up and do what you HAVE to do before you do what you WANT to do. I say this to the kids in the classroom all the time. Don’t let it take over emotional space, put the nike tick on your forehead and just do it! Then we can all look forward to lovely thoughts…All the best, Therese

    Good luck with your date with the taxman! Hopefully you can get it done quickly and get back to doing the things you love…like blogging!!
    I totally understand what you’re going through, I had to take care of all of that last week…not fun. But now I feel like it’s a burden that’s behind me. Here’s to hoping you’ll be feeling liberated soon.

    That first image is divine! Best of luck with your taxes…we still have that mountain to climb ourselves. I foresee a lot of hunting for receipts accompanied by off color murmurings and grumblings.

    Hope Ava

    I am the queen of procrastination. I am still that same girl writing the paper all night long versus doing it when it needs to be done. Hey – but what can I say that is the way I am wired. The images you posted are wonderful!


  8. Loretta replied:

    Just fabulous! Love the beautiful curtains! I am also in the process of making some gorgeous silk panels!
    Happy belated!

    I hate this week of the year. Brings so many of my worst traits to surface – procrastination, over-shopping, impulse buying. The list goes on.

    Blogging is therapeutic indeed!

    Yes, good luck! Every year with me it’s the same thing: “This year I’m going to finish early…” When will I learn? :)


  14. Irene replied:
