I only have 18 days left if you don't count today and I am not so only 18 days to go!
I didn't get any good art done today unless you count the water color that i finished but looks like a piece of crap! For every one good water color there are about 10 really bad ones!
So most of the day I am not really sure what I did cause I never left the house and I woke up at 6 am and didn't take any naps but I did go through a ton of crap that I have accumulated though out the year and got rid of most of it and when I say got rid of it I mean that it is going to stay with Grant till I return. ( that is a huge run on sentence but I am not fixing it) A lot of stuff did go in the trash and some is going to the good will.
I will have a lot of stuff to post on Monday because tonight Grant and I are driving up north to his batch for the weekend. Should be fun.

All day Friday was spent recovering from Thursday! At least by Friday night I was OK enough to go to a friends party and because I didn't want to drink I was the DD.
Saturday Grant and I went to his Boss's Bach. Grant actually built this house with a few other guys back when he was 21. It is a really nice house, and we had a great time even though it rained the whole time!

In an attempt to motivate myself to finish this drawing of Grant drinking a beer I am going to do something that I have never done before and that is I am going to show everyone a work in progress. I normally try to hide my art until it is done cause I hate people asking all sorts of stupid questions about it but instead I am going to put it out there and hey if you want to ask a stupid question then go right ahead. I like the person who said there is no such thing as a stupid question because I would like to disagree and say there is such a thing as a stupid question but who cares ask it anyways we will all get a good laugh if it is really stupid!
SO here is the art in progress and my excuse for not working on it today is I am meeting a friend for a drink or snack and odds are by the time I get back from that I will have another excuse and won't work on it! But tomorrow hopefully I will although I might be meeting up with Anna?
I thought it was the busier you are the quicker it is suppose to go, but I am some how proving that theory wrong. I have been working and during the day with Sybilla we have been doing tons of stuff but seriously this week is just dragging!
I think its cause I am really excited to go home! Probably these next thirty or so days will be some of the longest!

So we did! The day started with sleeping in which was good, then out to breakfast at a place that had really good food, then on to Muriwai Beach. We took a ton of pictures so we can do paintings from them. I am only posting a few from each place.
This is one of the best pictures of us! We both have our eyes open and no red eye its amazing!
This is a picture of the city from where we were driving on the West Coast.
We went to another beach near Piha and went on an hour hike.
I didn't really need a back pack!
A huge cliff
Grant took a pic of himself hahahahha This reminded me of the pictures my mom would take of herself in Bonneville! Great minds think a like?
When we got home Grants roommates were all going out to get Drinks at Sale St a new bar and convinced us to go too. This is one of his new shirts.

It is a small potato cooked and cut in sections to create a sorta bun. The meat is a vegetarian burger cut in half with pickles and tomato! It was really good almost like a hamburger.
Later in the day I went for another walk and took these nice pictures to show everyone what a pleasant day it was. At this time it was getting sorta cool I kinda wished I had worn pants rather then shorts.
So like I said in my last blog last night was Grant's birthday. We didn't go out to dinner because all his friends kept dropping in to say hi and wish him a happy birthday. It was a Wednesday and of course you have to party and drink on your birthday right? Well that is exactly what Grant did hahahha! The only problem is when no one else feels like drinking or partying.
We got a good show though!
Box Man even made an appearance
It was Awesome!

The Packed car we weren't sure if we were camping or getting a hotel so we brought everything.
We stopped to look at Huka Falls
trying to get us both in a pic is impossible
Taupo is behind me
We went for a walk and there was this natural hot spring that people were sitting in. We didn't go in.
The motel we stayed in was really nice it even had a little kitchen.
me in the room
Looking at the lake in Taupo
Using the camera timer
We went to craters of the moon and looked at the heat coming out of the earth. Grant kept getting off the path and your not suppose to!
