I haven't really done much on my desk this week
After last weeks fun with taps and
flooding bathrooms, it has been quit sedate.
I actually took my drawing table on wheels
out into the family room and
did a little to my ginger picture.
That way I could natter to my visitor from England
and draw at the same time.
This is where I put it when I had finished for the day.
That was yesterday,
we went shopping,
spent too much
and had cake today :)
Here is a scanned in copy of the still unfinished ginger, using my new printer.
This is about my twentieth attempt to scan.
I just can't get the hang of it, there are so many choices
and half of the buttons I've never heard of, so I just
pressed everything until I got a reasonable picture.
This so called easy to operate Canon printer,
wasn't made for blondes,
that's for sure.
It goes over two pages of my journal and that is
why there is a grey blobby bit in the middle.
Plus I had my hand on it when the paint was wet
and I splodged it across the white bit
(That's pretty standard for me,
a natural born grot).
I have a little more to add to the saga of the bathroom taps and flooding
I take my parents grocery shopping each week
and this week I took my English visitor (Angie)
When we took my parents home
we helped to carry the groceries up stairs and my mum
jokingly said that Angie shouldn't come up or her taps might break.
You wouldn't belive it but late that afternoon I got a call from my mum
and she had come home after going out for lunch and heard water running.
When she went to the bathroom the tap was running and wouldn't turn off.
They had to replace their taps too!
When the plumber came to fix my taps, I offered to rent Angie out
to other customers to try and drum up business for him.
I think he is seriously considering it!
On a more sedate level, my last photo is of my
fantastic water colour paper pad, it is huge.
I can't wait to have a play with it. I plan to cut it up into usable pieces
and maybe do the odd big picture.
My sweet Angie has to go home to England next tuesday
so I guess I will be back to drawing again
later next week.
I will miss her dearly and of course
I will miss the cake that we have been eating
Have a great week
and I may start blogging
more after next week.
