6:45 a.m.: It was 38 degrees outside and his canvas…..

was covered with leaves. Daddy was sleeping and he knew it was early and he didn’t want to wake him to blow the leaves off. So what’s an artist to do? Pull out the broom of course. He perservered for about 15 minutes until he had cleared a small area and proceeded to draw. Daddy finally awoke and pulled out the leaf blower dispersing all the leaves. Now he can get lost in his art again. (And yes, I do realize that he was out in the cold without socks and without a jacket, but he said he wasn’t cold. Honestly I’m just tired of fighting that battle. He’s old enough to come in and put on his jacket and socks when he decides he’s cold.)
