Here goes my attempt to do a blog! I thought this would be a good place to journal the construction of my studio addition. I will try to post pictures of the construction progress. Those of you who are interested can log in and follow the progress day by day with me.

Sunday, June 4 was my ceremonial ground breaking. What a coincidence that June 4th this year was Pentecost, a time of beginning in the early church with the arrival of the Holy Spirit. How appropriate!

As I broke ground I read a quote from Kahlil Gibran that a dear friend sent me. I include it here.

"When you work you are a flute through whose heart the whispering of the hours turns to music. To love life through labor is to be intimate with life's inmost secret. All work is empty save when there is love, for work is love made visible."

June 5th brought the arrival of the work crew. They arrived bright and early, I might add! The sun was shining and the first digs were made. This is really going to happen or we are going to have a really big hole in our yard with mounds of dirt around it! Wouldn't the neighbors love that!

Today, June 6, the backhoe is still digging the foundation hole. The piles of dirt get larger!


  1. You look great with a shovel in your hands. I hope that is all the digging you have to do and others will do the digging for you or do you feel you have to contribute to the hole.

  2. Stay tuned for pictures of the big dig!

    No I do not dig. I just look good!


  3. Yeah, Judy! I am so happy for you. it is going to be wonderful!

  4. I prayed for sunshine for you. David says the sun is out and very hot in Texas. I will be more specific with my prayers. Sorry. LindaTas

  5. Good luck Judy!
    We realize that New England weather is just as unpredictable as our Swedish. To your confort: We have nice warm summer today with totally blue sky.
    Hope you have the same!
    We hope to come over to look at your studio in full operation in a not too distant future

  6. George and I are enjoying the view from here. The framing will go so fast once they start. Maybe send some shots of the outside of your new house. We would love to see your new home and how this is all going to connect. Lots of wishes for good weather for you.
