Here are my promised paintings. B brought the flower photos for us to paint. They all painted the Indian Blankets. As usual, I painted two paintings to their one. It is probably because I do not do as detailed a drawing as they do, and I am not as careful. I probably should be, but I’m not.
Thursday the art girls (my longtime students) came. They were like a refreshing rain. Due to other things, I have not painted with them for a month, and I was missing them. I didn’t do much painting while they were there, but after they left, I did throw a pot on the wheel. Yes!
Toby brought home more building materials, but we did not do any building last night. He worked on our bikes to get ready for the Duncan Dehydrator, which is tomorrow. He and Jes will ride 53 miles, which happens to be his age. I will ride 27 miles, which is my age – ha!
We have been waiting for weeks on the concrete guys to pour a slab for our outdoor kitchen and patio. Not long after they agreed to do it, a trailer full of building supplies showed up in our yard. A few weeks later, it disappeared. Then a couple of weeks ago a pile of lumber showed up in the yard. Then Thursday morning a different trailer was parked in the yard. But we have not seen anyone pick up or deliver this stuff. It just shows up and disappears. What could this mean? Are there concrete fairies at work? Will I wake up one morning and have a patio? One can only hope.
