I can't believe that today was already my second last art class!! Wow! Has it ever gone by quickly. It makes me kind of sad. You know, when you're looking so forward to something and you can't wait for it too happen, then when it does it flies by or it's not what you expected… Today I was happy with a few of my paintings. We painted birch trees. They weren't easy, but I ended up with a couple that I really like. One purple toned one and another red/orange one. It's probably the most pleased I've been since we started! I'll post a picture of one when I bring them here. All of my stuff is in the art barn at Sorrento Centre. I really want to keep going. What I need is practice! I stayed longer today. I finished a tree picture, then the instructor did an extra demonstration. She showed us how to fold some little books that can hold some of the mini pictures we've been working on. She also measured and scored my big sheet of paper, so that I ended up with a bunch of post card size and 5"x 7" size sheets. I bought one of her sheets, so I still have the sheet from the lady who was so sweet at the beginning of the week and helped me out by selling me her sheet of watercolour paper. I can cut smaller ones, or a few bigger ones to try. My options are open. The little ones are neat, but I like the bigger ones that you can frame afterwards. Maybe I'll do something bigger, like a northern lights or more trees. I'll have to think about it.
We are now stranded at my parent's house! I've been using my dad's truck to get back and forth to my art classes. But we had to take the van into a shop in Sorrento!! That sucks for many reasons! I mean who wants the car being worked on while you're on your holidays?? Something is wrong with the brakes , we probably need all new brake pads, also, according to my hubby, the roaters are a mess too! Too frustrating!! The stupid thing is that my hubby took it in for an oil change and stuff, before we were leaving for our holiday and he said they told him that the brakes were fine!! Imbecile!! Obviously he was clueless! My hubby said that, during the whole ride here, whenever you pressed the brakes he could feel the whole van shaking. Then, once he was here, while driving to the beach yesterday, we noticed a whining noise whenever you turned left. So, long story short we have no vehicle of our own we had to take to ours to the shop!!
After her extra demonstration, I drove back to mom and dad's. I actually didn't even get back home until like 4:00!! By that time I got home it was almost supper time. They were all waiting for me. My hubby, son and Marilyn decided to go canoeing in Marilyn and LT's canoe. My mom and dad, and both of my girls went in my parent's boat. My youngest spent most of her time behind the boat, and she loved it!! LT and I stayed behind. My face is hurting today- stupid thing❗️LT played her bagpipes while I ate a sandwich. Then we each had naps. I sure felt like I needed it! After everyone got back, I gave my little man a quick bath. I just wanted to keep him from getting swimmers itch. My hubby and both girls have it. It's really bad on my hubby.!! After supper we all played Phase10, and then …here we are!! Way too late! Way too tired! Beyond ready for bed!!Night All! 💤😴
