The tree was part of a larger work that I did not like except for the tree. The duckling is only half a duckling and the boys said I should get half my money back on the lesson. I was quite pleased with my initial foray into water colour.
I went to the library today and borrowed fifteen books to do reviews on over the 14:14 part of February and have been researching critiquing picture books so I do a moderately good job. I also had my echidna story back from RYS and had a 5 rating which equates to "not a bad story but needs some serious work". So I now have a critique group and they are likely to rip it to shreds for me and help me get it to submission standard.
I washed out the rubbish bin, sewed darling girls school dress, taking out darts and stitching bits, supervised number 4 in getting his study habits up to speed, read part of Brother Odd, had phone conversations, put petrol in the car and paid in 50cent coins, dropped off a saxophone, wrote emails and generally kept busy today, oh and took darling dear to the doctor. The shade cloth came down off one window so I will get back up on the ladder tomorrow or maybe Friday when I get the stronger clips.
My story for today's PB Marathon is to do with ability and disability and is courtesy of a discussion with my sister. I think it could be quite effective as a picture book.
Time for beddy byes I am thinking.
