Lama

A lama amongst stars and clouds and hills and grass.
A lama with some pretty nifty fashion sense too!
 
 
Today and this weekend I am working on some of my little quirky creature stories...
Why???  For now it's a secret....but I'll spill the beans sooner than later, I promise!

Snuggling It Up With Snores

My days have been feeling very rabbit-centric.
The weather has been so rotten, wet, damp and yucky that it's extra lovely to cozy up to the bunnies,
especially with a roaring fire sparking and crackling away in the fireplace.
I've learnt to allow myself extra bunny-time when I feel the need for it...
their precious life spans are so short after-all.
So indeed, coziness has been abundant lately...we've been venturing out little as possible and just
staying in and basking in the warmth of a cozy home full of cozy rabbits.
 

 We've had Gregory Porter albums on constantly...more inklings are in the making...
beautiful healthful food is being made...movies are being caught up on...it's been good...
but I tell ya one of my most favorite things in this whole wide world is something SO so simple...
It's the sound of a rabbit snoring...and yes, they do snore...
Teela snores louder than a person & I LOVE it so so much, ha ha!
 
What's one of your favorite sounds ever?

Favourite Salad

 I eat a lot of greens...
salads & green smoothies espeacially, my stomach just feels really crappy when I don't.
This is my favorite mix right now...
Red leaf lettuce with avocado, apple, grated carrot, pumpkin seeds and hemp seeds.


Pumpkin seeds, hemp seeds and avocado are great sources of protein for us veg heads.
I usually dislike store bought dressings so I make my own...
my usual quick & easy go to recipe is a blended mixture of light olive oil, agave, vinegar & pepper.

What is your favorite salad mix?

Going Way Back & Catching Up

A year long self-inflicted project of mine has included loads of time at the computer
organizing, selecting, sizing & editing photographs.
I had fallen behind in printing things & getting them into our family albums.
I've been plugging away at it from present time all the way back to 2007!
I am on the final year and I am almost done...
 
 
This weekend I'll do the final printing batch so I'll be all caught up once again.
Thousands of photos printed, chronologically in order, lovingly labeled...
It's been quite the project and feels SO good to be at the end!
 
Next???
finishing a travel journal I started in 2004 for our East Coast adventures!

Fishy Inkling

I had an inkling to do something fishy...
 
 
Head pain has been bad...these little inklings have been all I've been up for this past week.

A Secret Spot

Let me show you something secret like...

In my house, on a pretty little blue shelf which holds some of my most favorite stuff...
 

...Sits a very special and secret book...
 

But Shhhh....it's not a book..it's a box

 
...a secret box that holds one of my favorite mediums...my ink pens, notecards & inklings in progress.
 
 
I adore this box & what it contains...it's kinda like magic for me.
 
 
So easy to grab & use on the couch, floor, bed, in the yard, the truck, at the beach, whilst visiting...
 
Okay, so not so secret now, but still just as lovely, ha ha!

A Low Hanging Sun

I love this time of year...
(though I know most people working normal 9-5 jobs probably hate it!)
But, I love it when the sun hangs low in the sky, clocks have rolled back & it's suddenly dark at 5:00.
 
 
There's this delicious warmth to it all I find.
It's 3:30ish right now as I write this post...
Like most days at this time, I am enjoying a hot drink at my coloured pencil desk,
waiting for my hon to get home, thinking about what to have for dinner.
 
5pm darkness...It makes the evenings feel so deliciously long, embracing & cozy, don't you think?

Puuuurrrrr

Alongside jazz, sunshine (finally!) and ink pens
this photo, taken this morning really just beautifully epitomizes my day today...
I love how sometimes, a single photo really can say 1000 words....
 
 
Today it's all about sweetness & cuteness & warm fuzzy love...like many many days blessedly.
Oh my bun-babies they just make my heart purr.
Puuuuuurrrrrrrrrr.

Emmett Inspired

Well my morning started off with the tricky business of getting a plump grey squirrel
unstuck from the chimney & than out of the house!
Than I finished off this new ink drawing...
this one was inspired by our Min Min (aka Emmett)
 
 
I'll let you know when it's available in the shop.
Today I am working on another fish inkling in black & white and also on a goat in coloured pencil...
I have to work hard this week to keep up with an important deadline...more on that later!
Hope your having a good one.
