Well the first night with my working CPAP machine was… okay. 6.3 events per hour with a mediocre mask seal. (The My Air Page says it was good but I’m beginning to assume it will only say bad if the mask falls off.) I guess (hope) it’s adjusting after four days without.
Anyway it was raining this morning so my Mom thought this was a great time to put on our rain gear, go into the woods, and do another trail. This one was heading for the far point of the property with an old cabin. Mom thinks it will be a nice place for me to work. On the way we saw some interesting things. First we nearly stumbled over an animals burrow. It was probably a fox as we saw an orange streak with a bushy tail minutes later. Technically we saw two foxes. The other one was a skeleton. It was a small carnivore at least.
The trail work lasted about three hours. It’s amazing just how quiet the woods are in the rain. It dampens (pun not intended) Everything. You can barely make out what some one is saying within 15 feet.
After we got back we went to the Farnsworth Museum in Rockland. The Farnsworth is best known for it’s collection of Wyeth paintings, all three of them. The best bit this time was a series of watercolors by Andrew. As a watercolorist myself I always like to study other people’s techniques, and this was especially interesting. They were all done in varying degrees of effort from ones with meticulous detail to ones that looked like he did them in a half hour. As well as this There were a lot of great examples of N.C. Wyeth mostly his personal pieces as opposed to the illustrations he’s known for. All were great.
For the evenings’ viewing pleasure after supper when we got home, My Girl Friday.
