Feb. 7, 2007

Only 3 more days before we leave for Florida!!!

I am so ready to leave; it seems that it’s been just one thing after another for the past couple of months. Our Internet has been up and down a dozen times a day, and the telephone company says it’s our router. Well, today after work, Christian and I are going to buy another router (again), and if that doesn’t work, I don’t know what to do. And then last weekend, the furnace started acting up. The guys changed the furnace filter and that didn’t work. Monday morning it was down to 51° in the house (it got down to -25° that night). David went down and reversed the filter, and it’s worked fine since then, thank goodness! Amber went lame again, so she’s back on bute. And this FRIGID weather! It all just wears you down after a while.

To pick myself up a little, I decided to try doing oil painting again. It’s been 35 years since I’ve dabbled in that. I’ve got about a dozen ACEOs started, but I’m having to wait until they dry before I can work on them more. I’m going to have to look into how to do wet on wet so I don’t have to wait. It would be nice to just sit down & do one in a sitting. I also am trying gouache painting. That’s different working with an opaque watercolor.

Well, nothing more to post.
