In Search of Silver Linings

low areas in front of fireplace and front entrance

Cloud - prep work taking much much longer than anticipated (doesn't it always?)

High spots were sanded down, low spots were leveled and primed. One bucket of leveling compound was 'bad' and didn't set properly meaning that area had to be re-done.

Silver lining - the planks of cork should go down tomorrow fairly quickly.

Cloud - am losing my student/studio elf at the end of June.

Silver lining - I had her when I most needed help laid up with a broken ankle.

Silver lining #2 - she's going to be a really good weaver if she keeps at it - it's been a joy to have her in the studio. And she's not moving too far away so hopefully we can stay in touch.

Cloud - had to cancel my trip to Complex Weavers/Convergence due to health issues.

Silver lining - finally got in to the specialist today and I'm in line for a test and medical procedure that I've been waiting for.

Silver lining #2 - I can keep weaving - as much as I am able - until the test is done.

So far the silver linings out number the clouds, so that's A Good Thing, right?

Currently reading Fragile Things by Neil Gaiman

Laura - keep counting your "Silver Linings"; they are what we are very grateful for in life. It is good you focus on the positive .... can hardly wait to see the finished floors - they will be beautiful.
Weaverly yours ...... Barbara

That's a cloud for me too then - not meeting Laura in Albuquerque this summer :(

I'm sorry I won't see you in Albuquerque, but keep those silver linings coming anyway. They are indeed A Good Thing!
