Hooray a day that went as planned. Alarm clock worked, water was hot for my bath, washing machine worked, so did the dishwasher and Molly has been a good girl too.
So another trip to the farm to get a tarpaulin to protect my kitchen floor. Today I did the base coat on three mannequins.
Today was turn over the compost heap. When I had my old dog Bud he did that for me. You only had to say "What's that?" and he would dig for ages. Molly is too much of a girl to do that job, so I get the task. Anyway it took me about 3/4 of an hour. The heap is big, really big, the bottom has really got going but edges and the top were not so good. A good turn over will start the breakdown process again and the heap should be nice and warm tomorrow. It does save a lot of pennies as I can use this instead of expensive peat based composts from the shops.
My painting today is one of my Mad Birds for my friend Mary. Its on a sheet that advertises a lot of songs. Mary is another artist and I met her on line in an art group called Loving Mixed Media. we get on really well and she has been a big support to me by buying my art and encouraging me. I hope she likes it and has a laugh at the lyrics and the Mad Birds antics.
