The river rises

Thursday, February 22, 2018

Aside from the huge amounts of rain that we’ve been experiencing, this day was significant because I met with what would become my first family doctor in years.

Yay for direct primary care that goes for a more personable (and financially reasonable) approach to managing health and wellness.

Technically I think it’s a wordmark.

Something we collectively batted around so cards could be made. (hat tip to DJ & Tom)

Practical Disorder

Tuesday, February 20, 2018

Stopped by Indigo Hippo to pick up some old photo paper and check out their new digs.

Was delighted to find the work of Luke Schutzman up on their walls. From what I can tell he works at the zoo, and his love of animals is expressed so well with color and line.

All this happened because Maya said let’s have lunch, so I have her to thank for the afternoon.

Bonus? It was particularly warm and sunny this February day. Enough that we can share lunch outside. Little did we know winter weather would pop in and out through April.

Crispy Pork Chop

Monday, February 19, 2018

Another meal kit from Kroger to add to the collection.

This time it was Crispy Pork Chop with Blistered Tomatoes and Creamed Spinach.

I pretty much rate these meals in a binary way… Would I make it again?

In this case, the answer is yes.

Quick Draw at Manifest

Saturday, February 17, 2018

Signed up for a Quick Draw event at Manifest Drawing Center that featured live models: an Eastern Screech Owl, a Great Horned Owl and a Peregrine Falcon.

I was rusty, not able to remember the last time I picked up oil pastels and drew from a live model. Also realized it’s extra difficult now that my eyes have difficulty switching focus between far and near. (Been avoiding bifocals.)

The exercise turned out to be a wonderful experience that I’d very much like to do again. I love these bite size classes to try new (or old) things and make the most of an afternoon.

“It is not the finished drawing that counts. It is the time spent outside oneself, of which the drawing is merely a record, the ticket stub in your pocket after the concert.” — Peter Steinhart

This quote is pulled from “Why Draw?” on the Manifest website.

A special dress

Friday, February 16, 2018

My brother Robert sent a text with an image of this dress saying mom was keen on it.

‘Nuff said.

What’s her size? I asked.

Within the week we were able to see how lovely it was.

My mom?

She’s beautiful.

2018 Personal Business card

Thursday, February 15, 2018

I actually pulled the trigger and made those personal business cards with an updated photo by DJ on the front that shows off my ever receding hairline and silvering beard. And Edie.

On the back? My email address and a smattering of URLs. That’s Uniform Resource Locators for those that were wondering. (you’re already there) (where I plug in) (where I make things every few years) (my photo project I hope to expand)
