"Porte de Bras" Dancer seen from behind~from a drawing by Degas
What a day! Long and tiring, trip to Fairhope to work on the house, pay for a dumpster dropped off and commit to getting the property surveyed. Myself, my son, Jere' and another young man by the name of Taylor tore down ceilings, insulation, cabinets, and closets for 6 hours. We are all dreading the bathroom~the tub is full of black water! We've run out of contractors bags, ~we have used 50 so far, and by the end of the day, we are stumbling tired, but happy with the progress. The house seems larger without the garbage and furniture in it taking so much space. I came home this afternoon and got a shower to get ready to teach here at the house. Class went smoothly, and I got to finish this painting within the hour.
