notes

It’s cold outside but cozy in here, thought I’d do some writing .

I haven’t been in the mood to write for a while now, thought to close the blog but looking thru it decided I like it and should keep writing, so here I am.

It’s been a difficult few months, actually many months, terrible things have happened to us as a nation, you know it as I do so I’ll skip past most of it, we need no reminders, we are not out of trouble yet.

My children’s father died during covid19, very sad, travel to Panama was out of the question now, later we can go to celebrate his life together.

Okay no more sad stuff.

I’ve been busy painting. Lately painting outside my RV and now I have just finished (for now) inside.

it looks pretty cool, I painted one side of the RV, I used craft paints and decorative tapes, I got the idea from washi tapes I bought without knowing what I was going to use them for. I painted a table and used the tapes and looked at GG she needs an updating. So far I haven’t had a problem with keeping it together,(the project) we’ll see what happens when it rains but I think it will be okay.

Being it’s winter and cold I’ve spent more time inside. Looking around for a project I spotted a small pot of chalk paint a friend gave me and thought to try it on canvas. It’s a very soft flat look, I liked it and then thought about painting the walls with chalk paint. As it is usually used on furniture there are limited colors. I used celery on the top storage spaces and red on the entry and fridge wall. I added a bit of yellow to the red expecting a red orange color which would look good with my Indian fabric. but got a beautiful rose color and just love it. I still have to touch up under the cabinets as I painted that it was dark outside and nearly dark in here too, I was so excited to get started I didn’t wait for the sun to come up. The color rose is a little off next to my multi-colors fabric so I painted some small 8 x 10 panels with the same paints but added some orange and have them on the front of the cabinets. Looks fine.

I was listening to Jose Feliciano just then, had not thought about him in many years he sounded good.

I updated the bathroom when I remove the tiles and wasn’t sure what to do with the damaged and ugly wall. I bought a piece of very thin plywood to make a new wall and used stick on tiles with a Spanish feeling and that worked just great. I used the tiles to cover my book shelf too.

That is one confusing picture. I have my plants over the cab with lights and humidifier and I’ve used the fabric above on the ceiling to cover some spots, then in the back to hide stuff and again in the front of the plants that is not closed it toward the side and yet again to cover the inside of the cab where I have clothes hanging.

I need to save a few things to write about so I’ll close here for now, next I’ll tell you about my purple hair, don’t think I’ve written about it.

  1. Your projects are just amazing, Kathy! So beautiful! Your place has so much warmth, and character! When you finish painting the outside of the RV, I’m afraid you are going to have people knocking on your door, wanting to commission you to paint theirs!

    We miss you. Hope to connect this next year, when things become sane. Take care. Stay well!
