This morning when I was editing my diary from last year I could see that it’s nearly a year since we were told to stay at home.
It has been quite some year . We were very lucky to have escaped relatively lightly, though people have died. It’s a bit worrying that we could be in danger of becoming orange ( like Christmas) ,but even more worrying if we were considered bad enough to become a red zone. I didn’t expect to need my “permission to be out “form again so I may need to check what is the up to date one and print out another.
I need to pay my Internet bill so tomorrow I think I will do that and go shopping again for anything I may need over the next week or two. I remember feeling that I was over reacting when I did this a year ago. But it was comforting to feel that I didn’t have to go out.
Maybe I will order more pellets now.
I have lots of work to do and lots more I could do if I had to stay home more….thought be honest apart from when I was mural painting I have been home a lot.
I was starting to relax though and thinking that things were getting better.
Today I went to the farmacia, checked out the commune (.Still appointment only) put more money on my phone, bought wine and did some shopping.
This was before I heard the news.
Today I’ve been working on 2 portraits. One whose face is approx 4cms long and the other whose eyes are approx 4cms wide. I measured them out of curiosity. My plan for the weekend is to work on both of them . That should keep me occupied.
After moving the lamp so that I could see my” window ” better , the wall behind looked a bit sad so I painted it green this afternoon and while I was at it I painted the floor in that corner terracotta. It looks much neater. I am very lucky not to live in a smart new house where I would not like to spoil anything. My house is virtually turning into a work of art in which I live.
I think I am a little worried tonight.
However it is wine time and someone has just dropped in and approved of one of my recent commissions. As I have several paintings in various stages of completion it must look as if I am very busy.
I still can’t believe I do this as a job.
