approval to proceed
I finally got the go ahead for the A&M job yesterday. It only took 4 weeks for the person in charge to look at the drawings and say OK. I've put those 4 weeks to good use working on wax models but now I need to put all that away and get out my drawings and start on the intermediate sized art work...tomorrow. They weren't in a big hurry so I'm not either.
I think I would like to finish the current model I'm working on first, one of the feathers on the beach pieces. It's fairly simple compared to what I usually do so I think I can get it finished today. It's a long day today, meaning that I don't have any errands or activities scheduled, like Mondays and Wednesdays when I go to yoga at 5:30 and I ran all my errands yesterday.
So, 10 AM and it's already 80˚ in the house. I guess we'll be turning on the AC later since it's supposed to get up towards 90˚ today. We try not to turn it on before June though the last several years we have caved the last week of May. This year, we already had it on twice in the afternoon in late April.
Yesterday evening was really sweet though, not humid, not hot, gentle breeze with puffy clouds billowing up luminous all pale pink and pale blue with the birds chirping and the mockingbird giving forth with his aria and the heavenly scent of the easter lilies and the tallow tree blooms filling the air.
I puttered around in the yard after yoga til dark while Minnie romped in the 12 Acre Field.
