Floors, Poaring Rain and Painting with Pat

This has been a mixed bag of a day.  The workmen came to lay vinyl on the kitchen, master bath, guest bath, and foyer floors.  While they were tearing up my pretty little house, my sister Pat and I painted on the screened porch.  It was hot but we stayed cool under a ceiling fan and painted.  While we were doing this, I had to contain 3 dogs and try to keep them away from the workmen.  This was a bit hectic but it went okay until the storm hit.  We gathered up our supplies and ran into the house, fast!  We tried to sit on the covered porch out front but the rain was so fierce that we were forced inside.  Pat painted a pretty vase of flowers and I worked on a barn painting.  I thought it was a lost but with Pat's direction, I improved it a bit.  I did learn a few things today.  I need to stop trying to paint a painting and start doing exercises again.  I painted a poppy on a scrape piece of paper and it was better than the barn. 

As soon as the floors are done, I can start getting ready for my 4th of July party which is on July 3rd.  I guess I should call it an Independence Day party!  It will be all about family, food and fun!  My life is finally getting back in order and I can focus on those things and people that are the most important to me.
