Since this was the first picture I painted after arriving in Portland it seems appropriate to post it again now - especially because all my pencils, pens, and brushes are packed.
We haven't actually heard from the moving company that our moving day is definitely Friday but this afternoon their were barriers on the sidewalk in front of our place warning the space between will be closed to parking on Friday. I guess that means our appointment has been confirmed.
We've passed the 50 mark of packed boxes and hope the inventory lists won't be too closely scrutinized by those in authority and that 'knicknacks' is an acceptable term in Canadian customs lingo.
If it weren't for the fact the movers will be packing the chairs, bed, and lamps we'd be sitting in the dark (the candles are packed) and trying to find a comfy spot on the carpet for sleeping.
I'll do my best to stay in touch along the way. Motel 6's do have wi-fi, don't they?
ps: We had a wonderful time on Sunday :-)
