Used my rainbow colored pencil to draw my Dogbert doll for #EDiM 01.  I really enjoy participating in this yearly challenge.

Book 38 - Title Page

April showers bring May flowers,  starting a new sketchbook and getting ready for the Every Day in May challenge.  This is the 38th sketchbook I've filled with daily sketches.

Rays played with a new attitude tonight, and managed a 1 to 0 win, they are headed to New York to finish out the series there.  I have a cute bracelet full of little stylized crabs like this one.  Love these little guys, good to eat too.

Disappointing playoff hockey game tonight, Rays lost 5 to 4 to the Thunder from New York.  New York out hustled our guys who didn't seem ready for the game at all.

Tried out Koosje's negative spaces on my hand... worked great until I got to my little finger.  I only tonight got to watch all the videos from this week's lessons at Sketchbook Skool.  Next week should be better, and everyday in May starts Sunday.

Our local Harley dealership Low Country Harley Davidson had the bike Ron test rode in Anderson, and tonight he traded in his Ultra for the Softail Slim S with a 110 engine, ABS brakes, security system and cruise control.

Spelling was never my strong suit.  Still working on catching up on the piles of laundry, just a few more loads left to have everything clean and put away.

Didn't do a lot of drawing while at the Rally...

LOH meeting tonight was lots of fun at the Steel City Pizza place off Dorchester Road.  Ron had the Calzone and said it was fabulous, I had the pizza, and fried Mozzarella.. both very good.  Anna our server was attentive and pleasant.  We'll be back there I'm sure of it.  Tomorrow we go to Anderson SC for the SC State Hog rally, may be a few days before I'm able to post again.

I used D'Atramentis document black ink in a Lamy Safari Fountain pen to draw a quick study of the head of a Snowy Egret in the pond at the end of Faber Place tonight on our way to dinner.  Caran D'Ache colored pencils to add the color.  I like the effects some people get with colored pencils, not sure exactly how they do that, I just know it is way more time consuming than watercolor, so my lazy nature prefers watercolor.

Couldn't have worked out better if we'd tried, refund from the state, covers what we owe the Feds with $200 or so left over to spend anyway we want.  Ron says he'll do them next year.... I may take him up on that as I always procrastinate until the last day.  I hate doing the taxes, I'd rather scoop dog poop... just saying.

Daisy and Dixie got their shots today, so now all the dogs are up to date and ready for Summer.  Got the grocery shopping done today too,  avoided doing the taxes today, tomorrow I must get them done.

Rainy, gray day today... and too darn cold to suit me.  Weekend of the tax returns... ugh... I do HATE doing taxes.  Next week VACATION!  woo hoo

When I did yesterday's page I had no idea that I'd have a flower the very next day.  All three rose bushes have been covered in buds for well over a week.  Came home this evening after a trip to Atlanta Georgia today, and the first thing I noticed was a yellow rose... so Yellow bloomed first,  Red and peach cannot be far behind.
