After thinking we had missed the cutoff for schedule changes, I heard via email on Friday that my daughter will be starting engineering sometime this week. That will mean a zero period and getting up at six for her. She has also gotten into the after school program, so the schedule we were hoping for has finally come about.
Meanwhile I'm making progress on my portrait of Salmon. The face shape still needs adjusting but it's getting there. This photo shows five hours of work.
This week, weather permitting, we'll be having new gates and a fence extension built in our backyard as we prepare to adopt a puppy. We've hired the same people who did our stairs and railing.
What I read:
It was a good week of reading. Most of the books were short which is why I was able to get so many read. Also my husband was out of town so I wasn't watching TV with him. When I was wasn't reading at night I was watching through episodes of Man from Atlantis, NCIS, and Midsomer Murders.
