Today was the day for the block party street painting. Â The weather was great. Â It wasn’t too hot, and it wasn’t too cold, it was Goldilocks, just right. Â It did try to make us believe rain was going to fall on us a few times, but fortunately, that never materialized. Â Heather was out there the earliest at 6. Â I needed a bit more zzz’s. Â I was out there at 7:30, but I brought Heather a cup of coffee. Â Then it was non-stop working on the working and painting and discussing and having creative license reinterpretations of our picture, more discussions of perspective and composition and lots of mixing of colors. Â But, in the end, is something quite spectacular. Â The intersection underwent quite a transformation (as did some hands). Â We had plenty of great volunteers that showed up, some all day, some periodically throughout the day, to lend a helping hand. Â Whatever amount of help they offered was appreciated. Â Some showed up for food and that’s cool too. Â The kids enjoyed having the opportunity to eat some vittles in the middle of the street, without those pesky cars. Â Now, I am so tired. Â You should come check this out.
