My senior year of high school was many, many, many moons ago, but I do remember how distracted I was that last quarter. Knowing something big was coming to a close, feeling spring fever, and the ever present anticipation of something, and somewhere, brand new.
I've been thinking about that time a lot lately, because those feelings are re-emerging for me - to the point of utter distraction. I can't stop thinking about vacations, and far off places, and how wonderful it will be to hug my family again. More friends and family are getting vaccinated, and it feels like a countdown has started. The weather here has been distractingly beautiful. Sadly, I also have the shoppies real bad.
Focus has been, let's say, a challenge. But a wonderful challenge that I'm happy to experience, nonetheless. When I think back to how I felt even a year ago, much less 3 or 4, it's incredible to me the journey we've all been on. Those of us that have survived it have so much to be thankful for.
Keeping myself limber this week with a design for a Prairie Style Ranch House. I've specified this Aspyre V-Groove siding for 2 separate projects this year already - its really that good, so I started there. Loving dark mysterious jewel tones right now, so I decided to cover the siding with Jasper from Sherwin-Williams, and accent it with a gorgeous brick veneer from Old Mill Brick. To keep it warm, I'd do an Aged Bronze metal roof, and then bring on a gorgeous wood door in a grid pattern, and brass accents to pop off the dark green. To tie it all together, I'd suggest these great chairs in a color to match the roof and then soften everything up with native grasses for the landscaping.
