A Better One
One of the squirrels also enjoyed a suet pellet snack today. I'm surprised that they've left it alone for days since I refilled it.
I spent most of the day playing with watercolors. First I fixed the ferret, er, bird that I painted yesterday. I kept looking at it and it finally occurred to me how I could fix it with a few simple brush strokes. I think it looks much more bird-like now.
Then I practiced painting birds freehand. I painted two of them and this one turned out the best. I liked it so much that I cut it out of the paper so that I can collage it on another page in the sketchbook.
Domestika had nearly all of their classes on sale for $9.99. I might have signed up for a few of them.)
I drew a lot in my watercolor sketchbook and some practice designs in a drawing sketchbook first but I also drew a lesson out of the Draw Squad book. I realized today that I'm having less trouble making lines where and how I want them so I don't want to stop my daily drawing practice.
Tonight I knitted on the Black & White Sock while I watched TV. I need about another half inch before it's time to start the toe decreases then I'll have to find another knitting project.
Today's toss was a weird-ass vegetable peeler that Durwood bought that I could never make work. It slips over your middle finger and rests at the base of your fingers and you stroke it over the carrot or potato. It never worked for me. Then I found an old meat fork that belonged to my mother-in-law that I've never used and don't know why I've kept for thirty years. I should probably remove that whole drawer of gadgets and go through it. I bet I'll find all kinds of interesting things to toss.
I found a "lightened up" recipe for Pad Thai the other day on The Pound Dropper's website that has me drooling so when I went to the food store for my refilled Rx I got the ingredients that I need to make it, maybe tomorrow, on the weekend for sure. It makes 6 servings so I hope that it keeps well. Guess what I'll be eating for six straight nights.
