I spent much of the day working on animations in Photoshop. I'm teaching myself how to make .gif images, and it's pretty fun. I'm glad I can do something a little bit more intellectual than mopping floors. Here's an image I put together for Pascal, now I just have to find something to do with it besides post it on Facebook.
However, the manual labor is not over. Pascal's giving me things to fix up around the distillery because I'm the only other male that works here. I'm not saying that girls can't do the work that I'm doing, I'm just more willing to do it, and Pascal doesn't feel as bad making me do it.
I attached the disheveled grape vines growing above the entrance way to the metal lattice they're growing on. It was windy today, so some of the younger parts blew off of their tendrils, and I used some wire to fix them up.
The boy-work for today wasn't quite finished after that though. Pascal also asked me to refinish some of the exposed surfaces of wood outside. After explaining the surfaces he wanted me to recover, in French no less, he handed me a brush, some stainer, and a red plastic pale.
