#EDiM27 Coffee or Tea. I love my coffee in the morning and green tea the rest of the day.  Tried to be clever and draw a coffee cup outline with coffee beans... didn't quite turn out like I'd hoped.

#EDiM26 today insects... a mosquito bite on my left leg today inspired my choice of insect.  It was close as I'd been thinking the Palmetto bug would be my offer, if you've never been to South Carolina, Palmetto bug are GIANT as in HUGE on STEROIDS roaches, that can fly.  They lost to the annoying mosquito this time, maybe next year.

#EDiM24 favorite fruit, had to pick peaches.  I've been craving peaches all Winter, can't wait for some good SC grown peaches this Summer.  I voted today, first time I've ever voted early/absentee no lines, quick and easy, I should go on vacation during elections more often.

EDiM#23 a pet... had to draw our oldest dog 'Jebby' he is 14 years old and mellow and sweet just like his Dad Beauregard.  Gracie daughter of Beau and Jill is more like Jill, hyper and a fighter she is two years younger than Jeb,  he tolerates her bossiness but has his limits of what he's willing to put up with.  We love our Beau babies.

#EDiM22 Bowls, used a few of my new gouache paints to add color to my simple bowls.  Ron and I took a short ride today to check out how my shock adjustment worked.  Just two weeks left before my big bike trip, I'm getting excited about it.

#EDiM16 Cutlery, I chose my pocket knife that I use to sharpen my watercolor pencils.  Inspired by Liz Steel's knife sharpened pencils, I have been using a knife ever since taking her online class last year.

#EDiM15 Jewelry... this is a piece of sea shell that my friend from New York made and gave to me at a Cheap Joe's workshop in 2013.  It is a much brighter blue than I painted it.  It is a favorite necklace and I think of my artist friend Elly every time I wear it.  Thanks again Elly.

#EDiM14 a sandwich.  Sub-sandwiches, so very good, but so bad for me that I rarely eat one.  It's the bread that gets me, spikes my sugar big time. Couldn't go to Myrtle Beach today, developed an ugly Summer cough and cold... UGH.  Couldn't go to the hockey game either... spent the day in bed mostly.
