A Little Story

Here is a little story which is a little view into my every day life.

I am watering the garden from a hose this morning.  Obi is trying to catch the water stream in his mouth which is a game he loves even though he doesn't really like getting wet.  So feeling quite playful I turn the hose full on his body - he is in need of a bath which is an hour long, back-breaking ordeal for both of us - and I figure a nice hose off is just what he needs.  He escapes by running in circles and then rolls in the dirt to get extra dirty.  I squirt him again, fully soaking him, both of us enjoying this more than him, I'm sure.  Then he runs past me and I realize I have left the door open.  He runs in the house and shakes in my living room. 
Then I mopped the floor.

Here is in looking slightly sheepish, although truth be told, he has no idea shaking muddy water all over his person's living room is not a good idea.

A Hungarian Folk Art Butterfly

My last two posts have started off with apologies for not I won't do it again. 
Maybe 2013 is just going to be a differnt kind of blogging year.

I enjoyed doing this pencil & pen drawing of a butterfly with Hungarian folk art flowers.  It's quite small so I'm not sure I can add color properly.  I like it in black & white.

My garden is so full of weeds right now.  I am heading out after this post to weed.  I had to take these pictures at particular angles so you can see the blooms and not the weeds!


Another folk art drawing
 We are going camping again this weekend so I hope to spend some time painting lakeside.
