Category Archives: Fun with Fingerpaint
A couple of days ago my husband turned off the irrigation system to the planters in our yard, turned on the propane heater in the well house, and plugged in the electric heater out there. Several weeks ago I cleaned out my raised bed square foot planter boxes and put tarps over them for the winter.
Today I unhooked the hose on the outdoor agricultural faucet that goes to the garden and unhooked the garden irrigation system control and stored it in the shop.
I will now try to clear out and neaten things up for the winter in the yard, along the driveway, etc. so it looks like someone cares. I will try to do something out there each day where the weather is cooperative.
The end of the growing season makes me sad, but I realize that everyone needs a rest before the whole cycle can start again.

I absolutely LOVED fingerpainting as a child in school. I would have done it at home all the time, but my mom didn’t want to worry about a possible mess. I still love the FEEL of finger paints – the freedom you have to play and play – squooshing the paint between your fingers, swirling it all around, watching the colors mix, creating something, then wiping it away with a swoosh….
Iris Scott loves fingerpainting, too, but she brings it to an art form. I’m in awe of her talent. She makes me want to play again, even though there is no way in the world I could ever hope to emulate her work.
