It was doggie day on the walk this morning. The OFM got to pet a Pitt Bull, Vizsla, Labradoodle, black chubby old dog and a few others. It made for a lot of short nice breaks on the walk.
The hotspot Internet device that was giving trouble yesterday is no longer part of the Teams. It sleeps in the trash can tonight. We are now officially on the Internet from the new smart phone. This will save the OFM Teams about $55 a month. It has already proven to be quite a bit faster than the hotspot was.
It got hot enough to turn the air conditioner on and listen to the cold air infiltrate the Castle. It sure was a good feeling. The Castle cooled down from 90 to 78 in less than thirty minutes. That 15K BTU/Hr unit really beats the old 13.5 K unit we wore out.
Since we were inside to keep cool the OFM went to work practicing on using several types of art items for putting color on the paper. The OFM took a basic flower sketch and used a little bit of all sorts of items to color the painting. The paper was even a new, to us, style of paper for paintings.
It was an interesting experiment for sure. The result of which is that the Grands will soon inherit some more art junk.
The OFM is slowly sorting down to the tools he likes for the art. This puts us at a new point in the art effort. Learning blending by using the coloring books was a great success. Now trying all sorts of things like water color, crayons, colored pencil etc has led to basically two items for doing the coloring, Neocolor II crayons and Prismacolor Colored Pencils.
Our next self imposed efforts will be drawing as an art form and sketching as a preparatory effort to producing a painting. And before we forget here is today's experiment painting with at least seven different types of coloring involved in it.
And that is part of the OFM's day of trying to have tooooo much fun.
