Signs of Spring

The weather is in the low 60’s…just for the day…but still…yum.  There are more birds chirping when I go outside.  The sun is up earlier and up later.  Spring is coming.

The Bearded One is definitely addicted to buying seeds.  I am still considering confiscating seed catalogs before he sees them…but I guess there are fewer more benign addictions…

Our dryer began making screeching noises several months ago (remember, Pat?) but I have been trying valiantly to ignore them.  At this point, it is impossible to ignore without earplugs.   Sigh.  The decision now is whether to have a repairman in or to buy new.  Since the dryer has at least eight years on it, we think buy new.  So, tomorrow, off to assume the position and buy a dryer.   Sigh.

Worked a bit on the Allie picture.  Thanks to you all for your encouragement, it is appreciated.


Last night...


Then a bit of work on the chest and some touch ups on the face…




and a reminder, the reference photo…

  1. I like the sketch–art–better than the photo.
