When I got home I put the guest room back together, stripped the bed and washed the linens and ran the vaccuum. The hubster and I then went to the mall where he has a space and rearranged, added new things and took a couple of things back home. We had to stop on the way back to get some groceries and when we got home I made chicken noodle soup.

The Australian Open has started and I blame it for my lack of interest in the art room - I really like watching tennis and have several favorites.

For today, the first thing I need to do is clean up my art room - it is a very big mess!
This afternoon I have to make the call to the dermatologist to find out if they have the results of Mom's biopsies yet. When I called yesterday, as instructed, the results had not come back yet.
I intend to begin the next two pages in the collaborated book swap I am doing, but won't be able to share them until the intended recipient receives them. I am still waiting to hear from the first ones that I sent out more than a week ago.
If I am going to get moving on this art room mess, I'd better get a move on.
I hope to see you tomorrow!
