Oh! What a busy day! This morning's classes at the gym were grueling - but always totally worth it. I followed that with four hours of hard labor in the yard (with a few plantings :). After Mike and Michael left for a little shopping, I grabbed my paints and headed to the closest creek! I checked two before deciding this light would last the longest. It was late enough, there was little traffic. One small dirt bike came by three times - to check my progress! One little boy was exclaiming to his dad as they drove by, "She is painting! She is!" The weather could not have been nicer for painting - and the bugs just weren't out! Unexpected so close to the creek. The hoot owls were calling to each other, and lulling me right into the zone with their conversation. I love being totally enveloped by the beautiful place I am painting. Its just a little mini vacation, minutes from home. Painting number 1338 in 1338 days.....I think.....!
