Hello, lovelies! I've been out of the blog pretty much all this week. The husband called me out on my slacking.
What have I been doing? Well, you know...stuff. Yesterday, we waited a couple of hours in the morning for the door man to fix the back door. He showed up on time and was very polite, which is always good.

Then, we waited in traffic because we thought we would go to Carb Day, which is an Indy 500 event. We did not make it because we got there too late to see what we wanted to see. We abandoned our endeavor after about 30 minutes in traffic. Not fun, but we did see some country people chilling in lawn chairs in the back of a pickup truck drinking beer. That's something you don't see every day.

Today we worked in the yard, and by 'we', I mean we went to the store and picked up some plants so that the husband and the children could plant them. I worked on indoor chores. I don't function well in the heat. We got some foxglove, which is a very pretty flower that is supposed to attract hummingbirds. I will post some pictures of the flowers soon if I remember.

I did finish an illustration that I've had in my head for some time. Here is a low res mini version. I'm mostly happy with the way it turned out. The original is much clearer, of course. It seems to be very unhappy that I shrank it down and converted it to jpg.


  1. I like that pic. Did you create it on photoshop?

  2. Thank you! It started out as pencil on paper. Then I traced it into Fireworks and did some brush work in Illustrator and a bit on the bird in Photoshop.


Two Cents?
