Today while running errands I picked up a new paintbrush for a long overdue painting project. Next to the brush I needed for my project was a set of five paintbrushes in varying sizes for 2,900 Tanzanian shillings–that’s about $1.78 by today’s exchange rate. I threw the brush set in my cart and headed for the cashier.
When I got home, I opened the package of brushes, pulled a bucket of water over to the concrete wall and set Max and Elly loose.
This idea of water painting is so simple, yet so ingenious at the same time. We have no shortage of concrete walls in our compound and Max and Elly happily agreed to paint them all.
They were both so engrossed with the activity, I couldn’t even get them to look at me for a picture. I said to Elly, “Look at Mommy!” Her reply: “Mommy I don’t have time to see you right now, I’m busy.”
Well then, I’ll just leave you two to your work. If you need me, I’ll be in the office blogging about the cheapest, simplest sanity saver ever.
