No more red paint!!

Still painting the upstairs studio... once I painted the walls I realized the ceiling needed to be painted and then Gerry (aka slave driver) came upstairs and thought one of the walls needed to be red (to match the downstairs studio)... so my work load doubled. Le Sigh.

Today will be the last coat of red and then I'm putting my foot down. NO MORE RED PAINT!! It takes wayyyy toooo many coats to get it red. Ugh. My arms are sore.

While I painted The Boys sat out front of the shop and watched the bike races. They weren't really interested in the race, but were watching for the crashes. :)I took a break and practiced some of the things I learned in photography class about film speed and action shots. Not bad for my first try... if I do say so myself. :)Then Fergus and I went to Thetis lake for a walk... I brought my camera but it was overcast and there wasn't much to take photos of... but I did find this lone wild rose just sitting in the middle of the forest.

Does Fergus like to wear shoes?

I hear you on the painting! I'm spending the whole summer doing exterior painting in my city, and it is hard work! We try to lay dark colours on a little thicker to get away with 2 coats instead of 3. It's crazy! I'm getting some buff arms though, I have to say!
By the way, your bicycle shots look pretty good! I like the first one best.
Keep up the zest for life!

Nice shots, Sarah!!!

I've covered bicycling events and it's not easy to get good photographs but you did most excellent there!

Gerry- you love the coffee... we can see it in your eyes.
Your partner there beside you ain't hard on the yes either:)

Nice pics! Too bad you weren't around a few hrs earlier. ;)

Do come out to the track some time, Thursdays are the best for bunch racing.
