Perfect Summer Weather!

Weell, I'm still playing with my new Zentangle hobby.  (And acquiring more supplies!)

Pens, pencils, erasers, blender and books.  And sketch pads.  Who knew there were so many types of paper?  I am happy with this latest try at making a blob look 3D:

So fun to feel successful!  I chuckle when I think of my dad's question when I showed him - "What are you going to do with that?"  Well.  Nothing but admire my own work, I guess ;)

Our sweet Ruby turned 10 last week.  I can't believe we've had her that long!  She's an amazing part of our lives - she has a huge personality and childlike quality about her.  (Not to mention neurotic and anxious.)

We had a pretty relaxing 4th of July weekend while everyone else headed to camping or cabins or boating.  (We enjoy our quiet neighborhood on these holiday weekends!) We dog-sat my daughter's dog, and a nice walk exhausted both Ruby and Rambo.  They are both older, so they don't wear us out too much, haha!  Rambo, however, is very social.  And fast when he wants to visit the neighbors.  I am not so fond of chatting with the neighbors in my bathrobe at 6 am.  That only happened once (whew!)

I had plenty of time to finish another book while enjoying the absolutely perfect weather we had too!  

This week was back to the regular work routine - and today is starting out to be another beautiful day.  Gotta love the perfect weather on weekends!


  1. You're going to show us, that's what to do with it! I love the 3D "blob" as you call it. It's art, and it's beautiful to see!
    Ruby's 10, wow, what a cutie!
    I love your bookmark in the last photo too. Days like these are why we live in MN, gorgeous!

  2. Happy Birthday to Ridiculously Cute Ruby! ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

  3. Just saw this! My son asks me the very same annoying question. My dad would not have! He was a bit like me with his arty stuff... 😊


Thanks for your thoughts - I read and appreciate every one!
