Pen and Ink...and maybe some paint

A little art work before work work...

Whew! Yesterday was a long one. Work from 9-5 frying chicken in the deli. Come home for a couple of hours to eat and dry some laundry. Drive the 12 miles back to town for a deli meeting, which consists of a Hugo lady giving us a talk on customer service and watching a video on how to be a good deli person. That meeting lasted from 8-9 p.m. I was scheduled to be back at work at 7 this morning, but I switched shifts with a younger coworker who likes morning shifts. So now I don't have to be to work until 2! (Then four days off!!)

I was "in the mood" to do some drawing and painting, so I thought I'd work on my wildlife swap. Today's subject was a snowy owl. I just love their pastel colors!

Here's my art studio for the day...

...the pencil sketch...
...and Snowy Owl. Ready to be cut out and put in a baseball card sleeve!

Just finished this book. It was a fun read, though I'm still trying to figure out how to apply it to myself!
This is how my dining room table looked a couple of days ago. I'm sorting through piles of photos, getting all of the grandkids photos together so I can make some choices. I'm trying to get caught up on organizing my photo albums. Some of the pics will get shipped back to parents once I have enough for my albums. You just can't get everything in there!

The view out my window.

Working on my book/article notes.

These were taken the last time I babysat (last Friday). I think everyone was getting pooped out!
Tomorrow is babysitting time again. The week sure flies by!

Is anyone else going to see Son of God? I cry every time I watch this preview. I'd better take tissues.

Have a great day!
