I had two choices for maps, either a tracking dog map or an agility dog course map. Since the agility dogs have much more colorful maps... I chose this one. The quote is from Susan Garett a very famous agility dog trainer, google her if you're curious about dog agility. The dotted path is the intended path of the dog... but is not usually included on maps posted for the handlers to study... figuring out the best path is part of the game. This would be a beginner training exercise... because there are no weave poles and no see saw... and no double or triple jumps... just an easy fun run for dogs and handlers.
I rarely drink Margaritas... but if I'm going to have a drink other than wine or beer... it will be a Margarita... besides they have cool looking glasses and a great yellow green color.
Well Flickr rolled out a new interface, doesn't work that well looks like a bad imitation of Facebook (which I don't really like that much either). Added my complaints to the thousands piling up in the help forums. Don't web programmers TEST their code before moving to production?
My husband handed over his watch without even asking why I wanted it... but curious got the better of him when I handed it back... he asked what I needed it for. Since there are 4 clocks in plain view of my desk one set to GMT and I had my own watch on... he had a reason to be curious. I explained about needing to draw something that belonged to someone else...and that I'd thought about drawing his jockey shorts... but decided that was too personal. He agreed the watch was a better choice LOL.
Tried to do a continuous line drawing of my left palm.... I still get lost doing those.. that's why my little finger ended up looking bigger than my thumb LOL...
Watching the Preakness... will Orb have a shot at the triple crown this year? We'll know pretty soon.
I thought I was so clever using my red ink to letter the Band-Aid in the places it was red on the actual band-aid... but discovered my new 'Cranberry' Noodler's ink doesn't play well with water... probably should have painted the pale blue first and then lettered... now it looks like my drawing is in need of a band-aid...
I love my yellow Lamy pen so much, when I saw a yellow Lamy mechanical pencil I had to have it... I must admit I don't use it much anymore... too hard for watercolor paper, and not dark enough for note taking... so it is just pretty to look at... otherwise useless.
My favorite pencil is a 4B Koh-I-Noor... ugly but useful... so I didn't draw it.
This little Rhino I got at Barnes and Nobel book store. It caught my eye because it is a bright red/orange.. and it is labeled as 'Rhino Eraser'.. I have never used it as an eraser... I enjoy looking at it too much.
So I'm hoping an eraser counts as a figurine.
This is my foam neck pillow... I love this pillow and when I travel it goes with me... compared to other people's decorative pillows it is pretty plain jane... but looks aren't everything...and where it counts 'comfort' this pillow shines.
This jar of grape jelly probably 2 years old... and possibly older. This is my jar of jelly and I have a piece of toast maybe once a month, and since I'm a diabetic I only use a tiny bit of jelly for flavor on my toast. My husband doesn't like grape jelly, so it takes me YEARS to finish a small jar of jelly. So it is no doubt the oldest thing in our refrigerator.
Couldn't decide between boxing gloves or a baseball glove... boxing gloves won out for today's challenge to draw gloves. Used my new Noodlers Cape Code Cranberry Ink in a 'red' Preppy fountain pen. I really like these fountain pens... added plus that they are so inexpensive (less than $5.00).
