Draw a little every day

Y2D298 and strolls

The sun appeared in the afternoon, just in time for me to go to my ballet class. It’s a short stroll through the local park, with its tree-lined avenue, and makes for a lovely afternoon. Class was fun, though I am not sure how much I have learnt. But I will go next week, and try not to look quite so serious and/or terrified. And red.




Y2D297 and bracing

I finally walked down around the shopping precinct during a break in the weather. There are some dangerous shops there, but it is still nice at the end, where the square meets the jetty, and the locals are enjoying the bracing weather.


Y2D296 and time capsules

Of course with all this unpacking, you come across things you forgot you had…the boxes become little time capsules. So you stop to investigate the object and memory, being it a book, photo or ornament.


Y2D295 and juggling

Another piece of furniture to add to the collection, this time another ‘display’ cabinet, to put all my ‘good’ glassware and ceramics in. So now I am trying the sort out what goes where…all a matter of juggling space and crockery.


Y2D294 and twinkle toes

I booked myself in to an adult beginner ballet class for the weekend. I’ve always wanted to do ballet but as a child I think I was not patience enough to do it. Now I am older and just a smidgeon wiser, I may stick to it better.


Y2D293 and settling in

There is still so much to get for my new place, one of the problems of moving back with half a house, but at least my bedroom is starting to take shape with its two new bookcases.


Y2D292 and warming up

The new, or rather old, gas heater is warming up the lounge room a treat, as opposed to the new(er) electric one that doesn’t do much other than blow air about. So much for all this modern technology…


I’ve been rather slack on the posting again, haven’t I. Sorry about that, but at least I now have my printer/scanner so the images will be slightly better.

Y2D291 and afternoon tea

I spent the day shopping (again! Will it ever end?) so was quite relieved to pull up in front of my house at the end of it, only to be greeted by the delightful sight of a flock of house sparrows enjoying immensely their afternoon tea all along my footpath and lawn. Naturally I had to draw it.


Y2D290 and research

Today I have been researching storage solutions. I have only the minimum but surprising large rooms so I need 2 display cabinets (to take all my ceramics and glassware), two bookcases and a pantry shelf. All I have been doing this week is buying things for the house and I am tired of it, but I’m also impatient so this means I have been haunting Ikea for answers to my home needs. They’ll be surprised that I haven’t visited today. Maybe tomorrow I’ll go again…


Y2D289 and warming to a theme

I promise this is the last sketch like this, but I have my new mattress (super comfy and snuggly warm now) plus a fridge and a freezer. I could almost have friends over…if only they lived in the same state/country I did.
