While Waiting for the Mask to Dry
No, not my mask. (Its so tattered one couldn't really call it a mask any longer.) I'm waiting for the masking fluid to dry so I can begin painting a picture. I'm dawdling because the next step is where it gets screwed up, ya know. The actual painting part of the process.
Any hoo... (don't ya jus gag at hearing that... 'any hoo') the above picture is of a cloud. No, really. Its a cloud I saw in '02 and it looked like an angel flying across the sky. And look... I bet thats the huge book of trespasses she has in her hand. Of course, for communication reasons, I doodled on it so others would be able to see what I saw. I was hoping at the time that it was a sign from the Universe that wonderous things were going to happen... but apparently not. Its that or the Universe is working on government time like they did with New Orleans.
Its a beautiful day so far. Thats because its sunshining and I'm not out in the heat. Its going to get close to 90 degrees. By Sunday evening we should be getting some rain and cooler weather. Its actually unusual for us to be having nice days right now because our Rose Festival week-long celebration started. Normally its cold, wet, and terribly muddy at the fun center. Tonight is the Star Light parade and next Saturday will be the Rose Festival parade (which is the second largest in the nation, or so I've heard.) I don't attend any of these activities. I did my bit when a youngster and I'm done with it now. Besides... I don't like crowds.
I think I've dawdled enough... got to go now. Wish me luck with the painting. "I DO believe in miracles. I DO believe in miracles." (I can't remember which movie those lines are from.)
