Lazy Days...

I've been a negligent blogger these days...apologies.
Here are some quick updates to catch you up to speed:
• my sewing machine broke (sad!) so my quilt (and all other sewing projects) will have to wait until I settle on a new one
• I made this soup last night and it was delicious
• my windows are open and I couldn't be happier!
• I had an entire day erased from my memory after a few hours at the dentist this week
• I don't want to do anything but play with these cute kids! (preferably outside) Can't you see why?

Some Presidential Doodles

I really miss drawing - figure drawing especially. So I've been doodling a lot lately. In honor of Presidents' Day coming up I decided to draw a few favorite Presidents, and one with really good wrinkles. I love wrinkles. Love 'em. They tell your story. Ladies, please don't be so scared of wrinkles...crow's feet, laugh lines...whatever you want to call them - they are all so beautiful. Well, I feel myself inching towards a soapbox, when really this was a post about my latest sketches.
Here they are: Mr. Lincoln, Mr. Kennedy, and Mr. Carter.

Abe's beard is a little teased and bushy on that left side, but maybe he was just too stressed that day worrying about emancipation to remember to run a comb through his beard.

CLICK HERE for a a fun little time lapse video of Mr. Carter's drawing. (The squeaky mouse is me chatting on the phone.)

Type Away!!!

I found this typing speed test and can't quit "playing". It's a horrible game that makes me nervous and jittery and totally addicted. My high score so far is 74! (BOO-YA! people still say "boo-ya"?)
Take it! See what you get. A certain someone in my house got 40...I'm not naming names (and it's not Judah, Ruthie or Albie).

Too Early To Party...

This is my house early this morning. It is Eeyore's birthday apparently.
