Still painting - day 8

Yesterday morning, on the way to the metro, walking through « my » park, I thought for a second (or maybe two) that I should find an excuse for not painting; the sky was so blue, the birds were singing… , but of course my sense of duty took over!

I hope that by the end of the week it will all be ready. Everything is going slowly, but according to schedule.

I can understand your longing for walking in the fresh, sunny morning
instead of being inside in paint`s odor, but this dilemma makes longing almost enjoyable ;).
And you got very impressive and beautiful photo.
Thank you also for visiting my blog!

The sky is really Blue out there!

I hope you will have a wonderful Christmas!

I love the smell of Paint and a newly painted house!

As somebody already said, it must be a big flat.

Hang in there, Peter!

Isadora said...

Well, yes - that is the secret - to stick with something long enough that you'll master it.

Congratulations and keep at it!

un bel arbre d'automne. Quand on commence la peinture on n'arrête plus jamais ;o)

Olivier said...

pour répondre à ta question, Oui je connais tout le personnel et j'ai gentiment les voyages gratuits ;o). C'est aussi l'un des avantages d'avoir un blog ;o)

Cergie said...

Et oui c'est ainsi. Il fait super beau ce matin et je suis là à blogguer et j'ai pas fini.
Après j'irai faire les courses. Et le déjeuner.
Il faudrait que je change mon emploi du temps.

Il n'y a pas un petit panneau au pied de ton arbre pour dire l'espèce ?

C'est certainement un baobab.

hpy said...

Non, pas un baobab, c'est un oranger amer, amer de de pas avoir été reconnu à sa juste valeur.

hpy said...

Et si on ne fait pas gaffe, il deviendra sanguinaire (l'oranger, pas Peter).

Peter, you are really dedicated. I probably would have succumbed to other activities by now. Glad when you return so that we can have more of your fine photos, but you managed to delight us with a few at the same time you have been painting!

What would it take to make you one of my relatives?

alice said...

Tu es décidément un très bon père.

isabella said...

Le pauvre!
That must be one huge apartment, though ;-)

(Rent a paint spray machine and get it over with!)

lyliane said...

Tu es bien un "Taureau" bien terre à terre avec le sens du devoir.Patrick ne t'aurai pas cru si tu lui avait dit être malade, tu es un roc!!

Noushy Syah said...

Peep to see how's the painting going on! :)

Peter said...

Appreciate all your kind comments!

A few comments to your comments:

mona:
Would you still like the paint smell after 8 days?

cergie:
Il faut que je regarde de plus près!

oldmanlincoln:
Do you have any female candidates available?

Maybe you should hire someone to paint the apartment and tell your son that it is his Christmas present. :-)

When I got my apartment, I thought I would paint my own place myself until my brother told me it's a HUGE job. I ended up paying someone to paint the place.
