Today is??? Wednesday. It's a blurrrrrr. Mike (a.k.a. "the boy") was home Monday because of allergies and we had the hot, dry, Santa Ana -y weather that sets off his asthma. We cleaned up the studio. He did his art table and area. I got organized. We both cleaned the bird's cage...and took care of Kirby (a.k.a. "the pup") It feels so much better in here.
Yesterday while the boy was in school and on a fieldtrip I was able to get TONS of work done, all while dealing with the pup. I wore him out and he took a two hour nap while I worked!! I am getting the hang of this (or he is training ME well). Later, while outdoors I thought he was digging a hole to Australia...but he found an ancient orange ball that had been buried decades ago...we are talking Brady Bunch.
Pup + dirt + boy w/ hose = muddy pup who had to have a bath. Yep! That's me again. But boy did we both sleep well last night.
The clouds (as predicted) rolled in by dusk and we had rain. I don't understand this year's weather...I mean...uh...yah...it's like...CALiFORnia...but this is crazy! Almost 90 degrees, dry and scorching on Monday, then cold and rainy, we've had nutsy weather...I can't keep up with what season it is "supposed" to be.
It's pretty beautiful looking outside now. Peeks of blue sky, fluffy white clouds, grey clouds and rain clouds, breezy, happy spring birds flying all over!
Today I am going to start painting a new Piggie Painting...right now in my mind titled "mama's love"...but that could change...I might have time before getting the boy to work on "mocha latte piggie"...here is how the sketch looks on the canvas for the first:
Michael is off for Spring Break in just a few hours!! I hope I can get a lot of art done now that I can stay up late working and not worry about driving and picking up. Time to get the coffee maker out and running again (still packed up since the last move) and figure out how to work that espresso maker feature!!! Geez!
