Today was a fun day. Possible rain which appeared for a half an hour and then gave way for a clear but chilly day. We had laughs with Mundid the gentleman who does our scaffold and some how got Ryan's cell phone number (LOL). After that we started at the top of the building and moved down. Left with one floor left we were somewhat dissapointed but it was aproaching 7pm and got too dark. Tomorrow we finish that side(i promise) and then we move on to the floor. ALMOST DONE!

Where is Ryan or Lyssa stops by.

Well the rain started this morning and it bummed us out but by mid day it was gone. After a great visit with my friend Lyssa (who brought us a Starbucks gift card, thanks so much) we got up and started working. Turned out to be a productive day after all. Tomorrow they remove some airshafts we can't get over and then it should be smooth sailing from there.

Well the near is ending. We got 8 floors basecoated and stoned out today. 4 to go and then the floor will be painted to look like Central Park. Getting tired definately and missing the family. It is getting colder which is a bummer and looks like rain tomorrow.

3rd side done. Father Fagan remembered.

3rd side done. Father Fagan remembered.

Well we finished the 3rd side today. We started the day by painting a portrait of Father Fagan from the Little Flower children services which occupies the top floor. It was an honor to paint him and I really enjoyed it. After that we cruised down the building adding 7 more scenes from around Brooklyn. Tomorrow we are expecting rain and have estimated maybe 7 more days to complete the project. Good thing too as it is getting very cold out. Coldest day we have had so far.

I want to start off with a shout out to Sarah Delaney and my Aunt Lib. I love getting the emails from you Sarah and Aunt Lib your note was so sweet. Thanks for watching and hope to see you soon.

On another note our first day back after a 2 day break was incredible. We started the day off by buying a few hats that I was eyeing for a while. After the purchase of the hats Ryan and I pushed it and completed the whole 3rd side of the building with stones in ONE day! OOOOF it was a push but it is done. Tomorrow we add the scenes in between the windows and then it is off to the 4th and final side! Almost there!

Here we are after we got our new hats!

NY Post came out for pics today and we started the third side.

The NY Post came out today and we started the third side of the building.

Well another interesting day in Brooklyn. This morning we had two grand visits. One from the NY Post which took pics which should be in Monday's paper and the second from the owner of the building himself: Barry J. He still is very happy and always full of ideas for the future. Gotta love it. So after all the excitement and the scafold was put up on the third side of the building we got painting and based it out in record time. Tomorrow we add the stones and then it is home for a couple of days as it is susposed to rain......again(and we could use a little break). 45 days here so far and so close to completion, kinda a weird feeling for sure.
