Return to painting

 After a break of about 2 weeks, I got back to painting. I've been low on cameras and also been very busy with work and other stuff. Class with my sister resumed at the Balkwill.

 Quinn got back from Switzerland last week and we finally got a chance to see him. He met up with us on campus, although there was not a cup of coffee to be bought. He had a great time on his work term there but had to confine most of his extra activities to hiking due to covid.

Tarp on gazebo

Did the math and found a tarp (at Princess Auto) to cover the gazebo roof until we have the ability to fix it.

Snake Oil

 Allan, Terri, and Xander came over this evening. It had turned amazingly warm with the temperature up to 31 and it stayed warm enough to play a game on the deck until nigh midnight. Ran through the entire deck of William's new Snake Oil game that his cousin Sean bought for him as a belated birthday gift. Great fun.

Slate opening with Jeff Nachtigall

 Surprised to see that Jeff is now represented by Slate. Wonderful to catch up with him without having to yell between yards. We also got a lot of amusement from Frans's miniature dumpsters.
