First of all, Steve came over and put the grab bar on the shower wall. I may have mentioned that the walls behind the tile are not sturdy to place the bar just anywhere, but I'm happy with having it where it is, in a vertical position on the front wall of the shower. I think I will buy another, shorter bar, and have him put that on the rear wall. I hope I never need them but it's comforting to know that I have at least one installed now.
We sat and talked for quite a while, and he ended up taking back their big recliner they had given me a year or so ago. Now that Megan is finding it difficult to get comfortable, I hope the recliner will help out.
We talked at length about where I could set up a place to paint and keep my art supplies. I'd like to start painting at home from time to time, although I still enjoy going to the class and being with others who share the same interests. Tomorrow I will start on the canvas I want to do on Wednesday, and get a little ahead of the game.
Here is a photo Steve took of me with my very first painting - the one I did in Alaska. Click to enlarge.
There are at least 3 things glaringly wrong with this painting, and they are just the worst three!
Later today Jeannie and Autumn came by, and we went to Michael's and Target; then back here at my house to visit for a while. Jeannie leaves in a few days to fly to PA, where she will meet Ara and they will start their journey back to CA. I wish them the best of weather, traffic conditions, and of course the scenery.
I have gone through several stages of tired this evening, and when I think I will turn in early I get a sudden burst of awake-ness. It won't be long though before I'm in dream land.
