The Joy Of Good Domestic Help...

It was a happy day in the Mad William home today. The nanny's back. I had 4 1/2 hours of 'me time'. It was so exciting. Mr. Man loves her and she's great with him. Then when she's done, Mr. Man goes down for a nap, so it's really like getting 6 1/2 hours of me time. Happy happy joy joy!

She goes to college so we are without her during the school year. But school's out. Precious and I each get two days a week with the nanny. Oh the joy of good domestic help. I adore spending time with Mr. Man, but a little personal time is quite refreshing and key to my mental health.

I have been thinking about this for days. What was I going to do with my free time?
A good long nap came to mind but the thought of wasting my nanny time seemed like, well, a waste. Plenty of time to sleep when I'm dead.

Not wanting to get too carried away with myself I decided to ease into my time. Painting was a must.
This one is for a fellow blogger. "Birch No 2" 18 x 24 inches.
It's not quite right yet. Been working on it for a few weeks now. Almost ready.

This is a little 8 x 10 inch work for the gallery. All the texture you see is from 6 other paintings on this canvas. I think this one is keeper.

I started two others I am calling, "The Fog". They're paintings of...Fog. I'm still working on the BS factor for these.

Then I went to work on a special project for Mr. Man. I drew the image on the canvas about 6 months ago. It's going to hang in his room. It's 48 x 60 inches. Acrylic on canvas.

We're going on a trip in our favorite rocket ship, zooming through the sky...Little Einstein's!

A break for a little lunch. A bike ride. I got in a good hard 10 miles on my mountain bike. Wow that felt good. Now it's Mr. Man's nap time and I get to play on line with all of you. If you could see the smile on my face right now.
