I’ve started to seriously declutter our garage, and one of the big hurdles has been cleared. Several years ago we bought a massage chair, and it was delivered on a large wooden palette. And that palette has been leaning on the wall in our garage ever since. But today I took the sledge hammer, crowbar, and circular saw to it and slayed the beast! Its bones are now in a pile waiting to be dumped into next weeks garbage bin. This accomplishment paves the way for the easier tasks (and also gives us more space in the garage. I wish I did it earlier!
Working on the sky portion of a painting, I am trying to recreate some of the purples I saw in Lilo & Stitch.
They’re close, but not quite what I want. So I’ve done some research (on Youtube of course) and ordered the colors of acrylic paint that hopefully will get me there.
Mariko framed three paintings that our friend Yellow created, then our son’s girlfriend, who is studying interior design, recommended a good spot for them, and then I hung them.
I think they look pretty good there, although they are not completely level in the photo. 🙂
I rode my Brompton to pick up the mail this evening, and the weather and light was so beautiful that I went for a nice ride around the neighborhood. Blue hour is so great!
When I look back to the few years I spent in Japan with Mariko, it was like a laid-back slice-of-life dorama. Such a nice time! And now we are thinking of spending more time in Japan (perhaps splitting the year moving between the US and Japan) and I am excited about what that dorama might look like. I can’t wait!
