Life Drawing Session

The other night Taeja and I went to a life drawing session! At first we couldn't find the building - it's this long yellow thing that we walked by, then realized we walked too far and came back and saw the posters for pottery lessons and life drawing and such. The door wouldn't open when we pushed it, and we got confused and rang the doorbell about twelve times before someone yelled down to up to PULL the door open. THAT was a great entrance.

It was nice though. There were only maybe ten people there, two models, and we had tea and cookies halfway through. I only kept three drawings, I'll show you my favourite two:

So you can stalk me

Front of the house! With a red door :)

Did some painting today! And some cleaning, some phone calling, some thinking. Very productive.

Bet you were dying to see these

Pictures of the house, as promised!

This is the view from the top of the stairs when you go down to the kitchen. The painting is by Katie's brother in-law. And there is the hall where we keep books and movies and at the end of the hall is dad and Katie's room.

This is where we eat. Usually. And where we make the food...usually.

This is the living room. It's a little messy right now 'cause everyone is packing since dad and Katie are leaving on tour tomorrow. The balloons were for Zoƫ's birthday.

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaand... the laundry room. If you go out the door you're in the backyard, where there is a side door to get into my room :)

Next up... photos of the outside of the house!

Wonder what my nest looks like?

This is what my nest looks like :)

The pink stuff behind my desk is going to be covered soon. The room is surrounded by windows, which is nice but will get very cold. So the pink stuff is there to help insulate it. Only three windows are left uncovered now. Also, notice the clothes folded very nicely (for now).

my room2

Notice the purple door! That's the door that leads to the rest of the house. There is another door by my bed that leads to the backyard.
my room3
My new bed! It will look better, I think, when my actual bedding arrives.. eventually. Notice the little white lights that hang above it :)
my room1
A little shelf with some stuff in it, but I'm leaving as much of it empty as I can because once greyhound delivers the rest of my stuff I'm going to need a lot more space.

Pictures of the rest of the house coming later!!
