I have all these ideas and plans, but no real sources to help me carry them out. You know those pieces of furniture I'm aiming to paint? Well, there's no Home Depot down here, so, went to the 'mom 'n pop' hardware store to learn...they don't mix paint in Brazil! At least, not from what I can gather... Now it makes sense why all the houses are one of six colors: white, cream, mint green, lavender, pink, or gold - think black might be an option??? Also not real sure if I can do all the reupholstering myself, and I have NO CLUE how to search for someone who can assist.
So....yes, to say it's a challenge down here is an understatement. I tend to blog about the superfluous things in my life, but the daily necessities sometimes seem to take an Act of God to accomplish as well.... So, for the past few days, I've been trying to keep it all in perspective, and appreciate all the Little Things that truly do make me happy - like.....
My sweet Ben, who loves me despite all my drama
