Just another day

For some reason ... when i came to write this blog entry.. the song "It's a beautiful day in the neighbourhood .. a beautiful day in the neighbourhood........ " kept playing over and over ........ and over again in my head...... Maybe cause it has been a beautiful day in my neighbourhood today.. the sun was shining.. the kids weren't screaming.. the birds were singing.. and i did a bit of this and a bit of that..


While i was doing all these bits and pieces.. i couldn't help but think about the contrasts in my life....... on Saturday i was sitting watching some sparklers light up a penis... and today i was cleaning.. doing laundry.. and creating rock formations and boulders....... just another day in paradise.....i could use more of the sparklers and a bit less of the Suzie Homemaker i think.........

For those of you who are following the continuing saga of the train layout... here are some pictures of the rock formations and the colouring process..........

step one......... pour plaster into molds.........



step two.. start adding earth tone paint to the surface.... not as easy it would seem....... i never seem to get the same colour twice... but hey.. Mother Nature doesn't always get it just right either!!!


step three..... add a black wash over the whole thing.. et voila..... a rock formation...
now i just need a few more.. and a few dozen boulders to match....... and a rainy day.. and the mountain/tunnel will start to take shape...

One thing i did today was start cleaning my office.. Now i knew this was gonna be a BIG job..... a longggggg job... a tiring frustrating 'i don't wanna do it' job...... so i started out going through boxes and boxes of cd's checking out what was on each one.. and doing a better cataloging job.... i came across some interesting BDSM pictures.. mostly of me.. and no i won't share..... but i did come across a couple that might inspire even me (who HATES biking with a passion) to get on a bike.........



And talking about bikes.. while i was writing this... the kid next door.. the screamer.. just came out with his new bike.. and guess what?? Daddy bought him a bell....... the most annoying clanging nerve twitching bell.........can i shoot him now?? so much for my quiet day..........


Like i said at the beginning......... just a day of this and that.........

Ain't there so many really neat things to buy for a layout?

THAT bike sure would make MY workouts so much more enjoyable! lol

You're so much more patient than I am ... I would have just bought a bag of different sized rocks and put them on the set!
However, they look amazing!
