I had my first watercolour class this morning. The instructor remembered me from the time I took her class before. That felt good. I wasn't sure if she would remember me or not and I'm glad that she did. I enjoyed myself. She showed us a few different techniques, like wet paint on wet paper, wet paint on dry paper, dry painting, scraping, using salt and mixing greens and darks. When she demonstrates the different techniques to try, she makes it look really simple. Then when you try it, it never looks like hers do. Well, mine don't. Especially when you add details…I pray for a happy accident! She says that there's no such thing as mistakes or wrecking it, but I certainly feel like I wrecked a few!! There seems to be some pretty talented people in the group. It's a little intimidating, but I try not to freak out, because it will make me screw up even more. We were working on small pieces of paper, about the size of playing cards. That also helps with the intimidation factor, is much less overwhelming when you're working, fairly quickly, on small pieces of paper. She showed us where the was hiding the key to the art barn. So, we can go whenever we want to, in order to paint/practice whenever you want.
Right after my class, I popped into the IDA drug store and picked up a beautiful travel mug (since I forgot mine at home), toothpaste, nail polish and a top coat, as well as cuticle pushers and I bought a mask for when the girls get here, we can all do face masks together one afternoon. My aunt brought a few that we can use too. I think that's all I picked up…I'm excited about using the travel mug tomorrow during my class.
We had sandwiches as soon as I got back to mom and dad's. We each made our own, then grabbed a drink, I had a Strong Bow cider. We went and sat on the deck to eat our lunch. It was still super smokey all day. After lunch, Marilyn and LT went to the grocery store and I almost fell asleep on the couch. Dad wanted to go out in the boat. I was just so sleepy. I literally couldn't keep my eyes open…which is beginning to happen right now!! Arg,.. So I ended up staying back at the house. My kiddos FaceTimed me just as I was falling asleep. So I had a short visit with them, then had a nap. The nap helped the headache that I had.
After my nap, they got back from boating and we made supper. As we made supper and waited for the chicken to be finished on the BBQ, we sat on the upper deck. We had an excellent supper, it hit the spot. They have fresh bc cherries. After supper, we watched the movie Last Vegas. It was good! There were some funny parts and it was definitely entertaining! Then it was time to get ready for bed!! Which couldn't come at a better time, because I'm falling asleep!! Night All! 💤😴
