On a lighter note, I did spend a bit of time in Fairbanks, Alaska, via Google and sketched a small house and truck. It isn't very good (the cobwebby looking things are supposed to be shadows) but it was fun and I did it because I read about the virtual paintout again on someones blog. I wonder if it counts to just do a sketch and not paint it?
Oh, I almost forgot to tell you about the mail I got yesterday. It was from the lovely Vivian Swift - you know, the author of "When Wanderers Cease to Roam". She has a new book about France coming out soon. She also has a very entertaining blog to which I've linked above. Be sure to check her out. And if you haven't yet read the book mentioned above, do give it a read. I have to admit, I didn't buy it (sorry, Vivian); I borrowed it from the library. It would make a great gift though, so who knows I may purchase it anyway.

I also saw a posting yesterday about the overabundance of redundant signs in our world and had to share one with you from Battle Creek. I have taken a picture of this sign more than once. I think it is a hoot.
And before I leave you for the day, I'd like to share another hummer photo with you.
|I love these little guys.|
I read a book that my friend Nancy loaned to me and just loved it. It is written as a series of letters from a variety of people. It was a very good, fast read. It is called "The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society". I recently took the little girls to the library where I selected three new books to read. I just finished "Minding Jackie" by Maeve Binchy I liked it as much as all her others. I have two other books by other authors to read and may begin one of them today.
I also hope to work on my watercolor. I just have to chase away my inner critic who seems to be chanting "You'll ruin it. You always do." She is such a nasty woman!
I hope you aren't being harassed by your inner critic and that you will find time to do something just for yourself today.
