It's Friday. Friday the 13th even! March is flying by. I have not been meeting my goals - weight, art, etc. I have been exercising more thanks to the warmer weather. The Tutoree came over earlier this week and gave me heck about my weight. I told her that if she came to talk about my diet, she could just go home. She said, "But don't you want to lose weight?" Of course I do. "Then don't you want to count calories?" Oh hell no! We moved on to other subjects. I guess I am at my fighting weight.
The big girls came to art on Tuesday. I only had three girls, but I love those girls. I showed them a portrait that I had done of my DIL who is very fair complected, but the skin tone that I had tried was way too red. I had been trying to get a "in the shadow" skin tone. We discussed this and then moved on. Later, I was going through some photos that I thought we might paint from. I showed them a picture of a young Indian boy in full dance costume. I said he would be fun to try in watercolor. One of my art girls said, "And you already have the skin tone figured out." Smarty!
Yesterday I had lunch with two of my friends who had birthdays this week. It was a fun gathering, although one lady was 45 minutes late and offered no excuse. I find that irritating. But I did enjoy my time with the other friend. And I gave the late friend a rather difficult time - teasing her about every little thang - made me feel better. Although I was teasing her, I was kind of serious. I am turning into my father. After lunch, I babysat the GGs and Mr T. They were fun especially since the day was warm and we could play outside. We also did some of their school work and watched a short cartoon.
Today I taking the GGs to piano. It helps my DIL. Taking the GGs while she keeps Mr T. He does not do well at piano. I don't know why. He sits through hours of church. But I guess piano is pretty boring. I know it was for me back in the day.
Tomorrow we are having an open house/house warming for Jesse. My sister is coming in to WF since it is her spring break. It should be fun. I'll let you know.
