The mermaid rides!

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