A good Monday morning to you!
Here are a few recent pages from the old sketchbook. I don't sketch all that much and this week I am back to tweaking a few small things on the book. Adding shadows and various things I overlooked. It is suddenly a whirling swirling snowstorm outside and I have made a pot of tea and brought the heater up to the studio. It would be a nice day to stay in but I have my shift at work today at 3:30. A peculiar time to start work, especially without a cup of coffee....
A sketch of a cozy outfit I might like to wear. I might not have an anchor on the real outfit, I just thought it might make me look more tough.
The product of my waiting and waiting for the guys to deliver our new stove. It is not stainless steel or snazzy in any way, but our old one was rusting from the inside out! Two burners did not light by themselves and the main knob was so sticky with years of grease, I could barely turn it! In this sketch you can also see mention of a new baby in the friends fold. Stella Henrietta born on Saturday! ♥ I hope to meet her on the weekend.
Ever since I saw the post on Little Birds about home made granola, which included a recipe, I have been making it for us here at casa t & p. This coincided with the getting of a gift of homemade granola as a housewarming thing. It was so yummy. So Now I am hooked, I finally have a breakfast that I really enjoy eating day after day ( I have it with yogurt and berries) that is also healthy too, unlike toast which is just fine but gets a bit dull and too sweet with the jam I like. Anyway, here is a fresh batch made this morning to be given to my immediate co-workers. I am feeling a bit scroogey about gifts this year which is due to mostly discovering that we have way way too much stuff and so who needs to recieve more? I am all over food as gifts but we will see how far I get with that. I am also feeling a tad LAZY this year as well. Deck the halls!
Ahh. that's nice.
We got our tree up but not decorated yet. It smells amazing. Yay for December!
