My house adventure continues, my dryer died so now I will be buying and new washer and dryer. The washer works fine but the new ones work better and are cheaper to operate. I got my whole place all cleaned up and ready for winter. I did have to take a pickup truck load to the dump; modern landfill centers have many recycle stops so most of the stuff went to some of the many recycle stations. I have been looking at this really large canvas hoping I can see what needs to be painted on it; I started something yesterday morning but scraped it all off last night as it was just not working. I have a few more ideas! Today is printmaking day, got to get the Christmas cards done! I have my design, so it is cut the print block and get them printed.

I do a Santa Claus/Sinterklaas for the teens and young adults living on the street in downtown Olympia on Christmas Eve. I have almost gotten everything I need for some good “Christmas care packages”. I fill one gallon plastic zip lock bags with goodies and personal items to at least make Christmas a little better for these young people. I don’t dress as the Sinterklaas except for a red stocking cap! All of the products I purchased and friends donated, it takes a few folks to pull this off!



Mon aventure de maison continue, mon sèche-linge est mort alors maintenant je vais être achat et nouvelle laveuse et sécheuse. La laveuse fonctionne très bien mais le nouveau fonctionnent mieux et sont moins chers à exploiter. J'ai eu ma place toute tous nettoyé et prêt pour l'hiver. J'ai eu à prendre une charge de camion à la décharge ; centres d'enfouissement modernes ont plusieurs arrêts recycle donc la plupart des choses sont allés à certaines des nombreuses stations recycle. J'ai été regarder ce vraiment grande toile en espérant que je peux voir ce qui doit être peint sur elle ; J'ai commencé quelque chose hier matin mais gratté il tout hier soir qu'il travaillait tout simplement pas. J'ai quelques idées de plus ! Gravure c'est aujourd'hui jour, obtenu d'obtenir les cartes de Noël faits ! J'ai ma conception, c'est couper le bloc d'impression et d'obtenir leur agrément.

Je fais un père Noël/Sinterklaas pour les ados et jeunes adultes vivant dans la rue au centre-ville de Olympia le soir de Noël. J'ai presque obtenu tout ce dont j'ai besoin pour certains colis de soins bons « Noël ». Je remplis un gallon en plastique sacs Ziplock avec goodies et objets personnels au moins faire de Noël un peu mieux pour ces jeunes. Je ne robe comme la Sinterklaas, à l'exception d'un bonnet rouge de stockage ! Tous les produits que j'ai acheté et amis donnés, il faut quelques gens de retirer ceci !

Avoir un joyeux Noël/YULE !




I don't know what I am supposed to be wishing for? Well I know but that never really happens!
