A few more days of my life

It's funny — I'm not used to doing personal blogging it seems, so it's hard to find the time for it (not that it should be at the top of anyone's priority list)! I've been productive, and the latest painting is coming along quite well (as is the beard, which needs a cutting!). There's a clearer shot (more Lizard, less Shannon) of this painting as it stands now at my art blog.

As well as many other activities with Caitlin, I went skating again with Nefarious, perhaps for the last time this year as it's warming up quickly. The ice was actually quite spongy this most recent time. I figure we've put in at least thirty hours of skating this year — some weeks every day after school. Once she figured out the basics of twirling, it was irresistible. Joan and her daughter are joining us for Disney Princesses on Ice when it comes to town…

The very snowy winter has made me continue to think about the Snowrail project. I'd have a prototype built, but unfortunately unanticipated emergencies more than ate up my resources for doing that this year. So it's still no more real than scratches on paper and the occasional blob of fimo.

Finally, this is what happens when a hungry beagle visits.

    As a brand new french canadian lost in Montreal for his first winter, I dreamed of matching an old snowmobile with a steam engine. This would make a pretty neat steampunk prop – glossy black and brass – but it also has some interesting pros as the forst is filled with both dead wood and rigid water. As soon as I find myself a place to work on it, I buy an old Bombardier frame and try to match it with a small marine steam engine.

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
