Not So Bad, Really

Having grrlpup and sanguinity help me today made a big difference. I suspect they wanted to do more packing of things in boxes. Still, we went through the storage unit I have in the basement, and grouped things into categories: Goes Away, Keep, Keep But Sort Through. Of course, there was a bit of admiring of things, like the wedding photo album and the box of emergency supplies. The major benefit was psychological for me; I've started the process and it wasn't too bad. Then we went for gelato.

I worked on Monday's comic, until I realized that I needed sunglasses. Action-figure sunglasses, that is. I knew I had Professor Boffin's white ones, which weren't quite right, but to my delight, I found I had another pair. But they were Barbie Pink. So I added another title to my collection; Miniatures Painter. I pulled out the acrylics and made them into black-framed mirror shades. They came out all right, I think. Here's a picture:

I didn't think of Before and After photos, so you get only the results. You can see the paint, brush, magnifier (which is TREMENDOUSLY helpful) and the improvised holder. It was fun, but exacting. I don't think I'll do a lot of prop painting. But it's good to know I can.

Now it’s cool out, so I’m going grocery shopping. I didn't get as much done on assembling the comic as I had hoped, but it was still a very good day.
