One Tree, Two Tree....
ACK! POODLE! WHERE ARE YOUR LEGS??? That does NOT look comfortable.
Anyway, here we are at work, and not a single person has come in. It is one hell of a dreary day outside. So I'm varnishing the trees I painted after work yesterday. I've got a sneak peek but first, did I show you the painting I finished the other day/last week/sometime in the recent past?
It's a poodle painting, because she is my little spoon. Derek thinks the words are too subtle, but it's a night time painting, so dark and subtle are okay. (Hark! People just came in! Back in a few....)
Okay, that was quick. Here is what the work table looked like this morning:
That's seven new trees, plus the one I painted last week. Tammy wants five so I figured I would give her a couple extra from which to choose. Here are some quick pictures of how they look now, wearing their first coat of varnish:
I never know how these are going to come out, and each one is always very different. My favorite is either the first one or the one with the crooked top.
I checked the extended forecast today and I'm glad I did - we've got some crazy cold nonsense coming our way. By Tuesday or Wednesday the nighttime temps are going to be in the single digits, with a windchill in the negative numbers. Time to turn on the heat in the upstairs bathroom, and maybe suck it up and turn up my living room heat. I was hoping all the boxes I've got packed and stacked around my bedroom and living room would help cut down the chill factor but, alas, not so much. At least I know the power outage the other day was due to some dumbass in a pickup truck hitting a transformer rather than a potentially worrisome repeatable issue. Although out here, a dumbass in a pickup truck hitting a transformer IS a potentially worrisome repeatable issue. I've got just under a month left in my very cold little home, so here's wishing for a December full of balmy days and low electric bills. (Ha ha ha, yes, I know, but a girl's gotta dream.)
