Painting a Day 77

So today was the first time I had to coordinate a day of painting with a day of Highland Dance competition.  I'm afraid that the competition wins for priority in the early morning.  We were up at 5 am in order to get everything together and out the door with the dancer and the baby in tow along with all the accoutrements of competition - costume, hair stuff, dance mats, snacks, etc etc etc.  It's normally not a bad drive down, but today we hit weather on the road, and then we hit the row of snow ploughs clearing the road ahead of us so it was slow going for a while.  All in all the competition went well for Aileen, she got medal placements in three out of her four dances!  And I eventually got to painting somewhere around 3:00 this afternoon.  Truth be told I really wanted to take a nap, especially considering that last night we were out for a surprise 50th birthday party for our good friend Dave.  Definitely it's been a good weekend!
