Today I ALONE in my house all morning! It's just so amazing! I love the silence. And I don't wear my hearing aids when I'm home alone either, that way I don't even hear the refrigerator running or anything. It's so peaceful! I decided to paint after I exercised this morning. I'm working on one that I started in the Nancy Reyner workshop last month and am working on a new piece simultaneously. I THOUGHT Kenzy was sleeping on Sam's bed where he usually naps during the day so I hadn't closed the door when I started painting. BIG mistake. In a split second, he was up on the table and I caught him just as his from paws were going into my painting. But, I didn't exactly keep him from getting a little painted. I had red paint on my hand when I grabbed him so no, he isn't wounded! This was after he got to the initial clump of paint before I could get him cleaned up. The little stinker! This was our first painting experience together and I'm a fast learner. The door will remain closed during painting sessions from now on! And here I had hopes of 'sharing' my studio with him.... NOT!
My boys have early release today. ;( I have to pick Max up in a half hour and Sam in a little over an hour. It looks like rain is moving in, which is a bummer to me. Ya'll know how I feel about rain. BLEH! I hope the boy don't have much homework today so I can throw them outside before rain sets in.
Chuck left last night to drive to San Francisco to deliver Zippy to a new owner. For those of you who aren't familiar with Zippy, this is Chuck with Zippy:
And no, Chuck didn't name it, I did. That was the first word I could use to describe this car when I rode in it the first time. Anyway, sad as we are, Zippy had to find a new home. At least we will save money on speeding tickets! ;) (I was always very careful driving Zippy and never got caught speeding although this little thing gets to 50 in 3 seconds so it's soooo easy to speed in it! eek!) So, Chuck is gone and may be going down to L.A. to sit in on a writers meeting for the show Gary Unmarried. Not sure when he'll be back home.
Gotta' go eat something and see if my painting is dry enough to work on again. I only have 25 minutes of peace left for today.
