Sept. 6

My giant sunflower is taking shape. We started the first application . It is an on going project. After the first layer, then comes shading and more outlining. For some reason, my son seems to have the final say on the tweaking. I am the scut worker. My DiL does detail and my son does shading. We all know our role. I have this expanse of blank " canvas" , the back of the trailer. Originally, the sunflower was to go there, but it works better on the side. I suggested that we paint a window on the back, which is really the front of the trailer, with all of our faces peering out of it. It's up for a family vote. Our Sunday meal was also  the date that I had decided last year, that I wanted to celebrate my birthday. My actual birthday is New Year's eve and I always resented celebrated my special day with the world. So I degreed that the evening before Rosh Hashanah, which is the start of the Jewish new year  , be my birthday. For some reason, it seemed less populated . Then I forgot. But my grandson remembered and brought a magnificent chocolate mousse birthday cake for dessert. How special . And I got to keep the left over cake !

Don't quite know how this got to me but it was on the top line of my computer (not in email) But I really enjoyed it. I truly admire you.

Everything sounds so wonderful Leona. Venice will seem boring . I would want to move to Portownsend where the kids are living. All sounds great . Is there?
