Balancing Act!

Things are humming along better than expected. At least I got this new thing started!
I had planned to finish "Bliss Bikes" yesterday, but Joe drug me off for a long walk around the lake. I whined while putting on my shoes and whined while plopping my old floppy straw hat on my head, but once I got going realized I was in dire need of the exercise. Joe said if only I'd listened to him alllllll these years just think how different things would be. Yeah. Right.
LATER, I settled in the BB workshop and mixed the most BE-autiful blue, using these colors, for the lady in "bliss bikes".
I'll show you a progression (as usual) when it's all done. Should finish it up tonight.
ALSO, I'll be putting these little books I did in the Etsy shop when I get some good pics. Reminds me, I'll be taking mom to have a sonogram of her heart this afternoon, but everything should be fine. She's a tough little bird.
Other drama...the house did get a new roof last week. This is a shot of a very handsome (looked like Zorro) Mexican man who popped up to the second floor to find me sitting at the computer downloading photos while sipping tea and wearing my pajamas. I smiled at him, grabbed my camera, pointed, shot, but he DUCKED!
Here's the roof in progress. eight guys used pitchforks and snow shovels to get the old roof off. An awful racket from the inside! That's my workshop, the window on the top left behind the leaves. The new roof looks great! Next up, living room paint. I'll see you tomorrow with my finished painting.
Have a great day everybody,
Ronnie - aka JOe's stove operator

Ronnie I love the colour of the blog.

Your house is beautiful. It is so big the guys look like insects.

Damn, I could have done with seeing a good looking man.

Hi, Ronnie! Wow! I can't imagine having a new roof put on the house. I think that would stress me out!

Can't wait to see Bliss Bikes. Or some of the other items you have noted in your sketchbook under those Golden Paints ... like "Phil's Royally Pissed Beer Poster" or Cupcake the Menacing Dog! :-)

Hi Rinnie! My goodness, you guys are always so busy! It's good therapy for me, as it makes me get on with things too, all the way over here! I am in love with your house - did you say you're selling it, Ronnie? It is really the most beautiful place....dreamlike. I just popped in to your Etsy shop, and I am going to buy the Guilty-looking dog if I get a job I went after last week. I should hear soon if I've been short-listed, and i think I stand a good chance with this one! Then the Guilty-Looking Dog will be mine, ha ha ha ha ha ha! (If someone else doesn't buy it first, of course!)
Well, take care up on those roofs etc Ronnie (rooves / roof's ?? Dunno!)
Love Liz x
