Brrr! It Sure Feels Like Winter

I finally got outside for the first time in about a week only to find that it was too freaking cold to be out. I spent most of the afternoon at my daughter's house waiting for the Maytag repairman. The window she was given was some time between 1 pm and 5 pm. That is a very large window. As it turns out, they didn't make it within that window, but they did call her to explain that they were running late and came out and repaired the stove.

I find it very hard to spend time alone at someone else's house. It would never occur to me to watch TV. I picked up the living room and checked my email and the blogs to which I subscribe and still had several hours to kill. I did bring my journal with me so I decided to doodle. I am quite happy and surprised with how this one turned out. It seems like at some point in the process, it decides what it wants to be and you have absolutely no control over it.

I began this one with a wavy road that ran around and under itself. I filled in the "road" with doodles and then decided to fill in the empty spaces. There were three of them, but when I got two of them filled in, it decided it was done and I was left looking at a 1-strap bra. Is this the kind of bra one would need if one were wearing a sarong?

This doesn't look anything like I was expecting (I'm not even sure I had a notion what it would look like when it was done), but sometimes you arrive at the end and you don't even know you are done. I was in no doubt that this was the finished product. I hope you like it.

I am going to the chiropractor in about an hour and then going to try to finish my Christmas shopping. Then I think I will come home to a cup of tea and a nap. Ah, the perfect day!



  1. now I can see it... and I am glad I can. What a fantastic way to spend an afternoon waiting for repair man, time well spent, these are really flowing now, looking forward to seeing your creative lettering xxx enjoy!

  2. That was my thought about what it was right away! And then you confirmed it so I didn't have to debate whether or not to tell you it looked like a bra, lol!

    I hope her stove is fixed this time! Have a good day.
