First Painting in a LOOOOONNNNGGGG Time !

Charles reinforced the ceiling in the bathroom with plaster washers and repaired some of the bigger cracks last week and then Saturday Jim painted. For some reason I didn't want to put the old art back up, so was inspired and had time to do my first painting in a very long time. It's called "I Am Curious, Red."

Charles and Charley Lauren

My brother has been here since Friday evening. He and Jim and I have been working on the endless list of house repair and maintenance projects, some of which are left over from the earthquake and some that we just haven't gotten to before. Charley Lauren, who now drives!!! , came down on Friday to join us for dinner and then again last night to spend the night. We had chili here and then wandered over to Strosnider's to pick up some paint and then to the Cheesecake Factory for dessert and then to the bookstore to graze. These pics were taken at the end of the night when we sent them to bed. Charles is pooped, and C.L. put the futon down like in the old days when she and Dylan would sleep on it. But she turned it around and set it up and then sat in it in such a way that it looked like she was in her own little playpen. It was very funny.
