It has been four years since our grandson A.J. was born. We received an email about it on the internet as we were having morning coffee. It had been a long night and our son just texted us to get the information out there to the family.
I bought a new magazine at the bookstore last weekend. I started my very first fish tank back in 1973. I had guppies and they did reproduce quickly. I am dreaming that I will get back into the tropical fish world. The magazine really had a lot of info about the sources of the fish and where they harvest them in the wild in many different countries.
I still have my goldfish so there won't be any switching over to the tropical ones soon. It may happen at the beginning of this fall when winter again starts to rear its white head.
I haven't talked much about the project for a while but I have not wanted to talk about it. I do think that I am close to having all the walls prepared for painting. I had added a new support post which required all new gypsum plaster. It takes a lot more time when you start from scratch. I also had an area where we had a sink and cupboards for the studio part of the gallery. That is all gone now and it left me a nook to rework with new drywall and patching of bad places in the existing drywall. I won't photograph until the most of the ugly ceiling is covered up. When I am done, there will be lots of photos.
It is tax time in our household this afternoon. I am betting we will have more taxes to pay but we will wait and see. I don't use my paycheck deductions as a way to have a saving account. I did work a lot during this tax time so maybe I will just break even. Whatever happens just will happens.
We are waiting for the snow to start. The county to the north of us is in a storm warning area. Since we are only 4 miles from that county line I am sure something will slop over onto us. I guess the weather people think we have weather walls around us by telling us nothing will hit us, but I bet we will see white.
Thank your for stopping by today.
