Finito, finally

Working on the mural a few weeks ago.
I swore off murals after painting one in high school and launching myself through the ceiling with a cherry picker (that's a story for another day). But Mikey (bless is heart) sort of pseudo-volunteered me to paint one at SAIS. I ended up having a lot of fun and meeting some great people along with way. I'm glad he pushes me to do things like this. I would have never done it had he not thrown my hat in the ring for me (and I never could have done it without his unfailing support and late-night Ada duty).

In our morning family prayer we asked for a blessing on Ada that she would nap long enough for Mike and I to finish up what we needed to at the school. I was bent on finishing the mural. Mike, as always, had a pile of reading to plow through.

Praises! Praises! She slept three hours!! And the mural is done. And we had the afternoon to laze around like a real Saturday.

The progress from a few weeks ago.

Signing the finished work. And singing celebrations in my head.
Ta-da!
We're going to celebrate the completion with a brindisi  and dinner on Friday. Now I just have to decide on the most tactful way to ask if they can have a sparkling grape juice in my wine glass for the toast . . .
