Progress despite the help…

It has been a quiet couple of days.  A bit of cleaning.  A bit of disaster.

We had planned on the big truck with the camper going in for repair.  No problem.  Just had to wait for The Bearded One to be able to drive to get it there.

But, that very afternoon, our spare truck, Red, broke down.  In for repair.  No idea what is wrong or how much it will cost to fix.  That truck is 18 years old with lots of miles on it.  Eek.

Then, the vacuum cleaner broke.


Eventually, we got the vacuum sorted out but the two trucks are out there with no clue how much it will cost.  We have the money but still, EEK.

Today, we had fun going to Trader Joe’s and shopping.  It is fun just looking at the things that are available and picking some for necessity and some for fun.  An adventure in our world.

I worked on the portrait  in the past two days.  I had some “assistance” as usual.

Most times as I work on my paintings, Allie sits or sleeps on the pencils. It makes it a challenge to choose the right color...

Last time you saw it...
