As I type, the TV is on. I am waiting to see if my school district, or my kids’ school district will close tomorrow due to snow. Several near by schools and school districts have close despite not a snowflake in sight.
This morning Sophia finished a roll of toilet paper and carried the empty roll around all morning. She wanted to paint it, but we have a rule, no painting before school, not even skelescopes (ie. telescopes). I promised her we could do it after school. Painting is a passion. To change things up for a bit, I decided to mix the paint with cornstarch. I get tired of plain old paint, although Sophia does not. This mix produced a thick paint, great for cardboard. It is too thick for paper. It reminded me a little of fresco painting which is water-color painting on wet plaster. I do not feel quite ready for painting on we plaster of Paris, so this was a good substitute.
P.S. No school for any of us tomorrow.
