Share Your World – September 18, 2017

I’m a day late – but that’s less late than I was the past couple (few?) weeks, so I think it’s good. It’s a perfect day to play on the computer, do some inking, maybe bake cookies – cloudy, chilly, rain in the forecast. Yesterday was much the same, so I made soup and baked bread. So much productivity – I’m going to need a week off! Now it’s time to Share with Cee and y’all.

Complete this sentence: I want to learn more about … Lots of things. Whatever grabs my attention at the moment. What makes the world go around for you and me. What my furry girls are really thinking. Ah – maybe not that.

On a vacation what you would require in any place that you sleep? A comfortable something to sleep on and protection from bugs or any outdoor critters. Warmth, but not too warm. Safety from storms, floods, fires.

What is your greatest extravagance? Amazon. I think probably clothes when I get it into my head that I need to change my wardrobe. I always think I need just “one more”. Reality is, I really don’t. Besides that, technology. I love electronic gadgets. Treats for my furry girls. Sometimes I think I spend more on them than I do myself when it comes to eating. So now I have dog food/treats delivered – my grocery cart is much less full.

What inspired you this past week? Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination. I think the cooler fallish weather. I actually picked up some (but not all) of the pine cones, the ones in the lower end of the driveway at least. There are more. Then I cut back some new tree starts – I have a poplar that thinks it needs to reproduce in the most inconvenient places. I baked bread (you already knew that), made soup (you knew that too), did some inking. A couple things I’m not unhappy with. One is below, “O’Keeffe Country”.

Wishing you a week of enough.

    I want to learn more about using Lightroom to process my photos…and also about shooting in RAW. I have access to information, I just need to sit myself down and read. And play around with it which would be more fun than the reading part.

    On vacation I require no bedbugs. Other than that I’m not too particular. Given Katie and I are headed out tomorrow for what will probably be our last camping trip of the season and am likely going to sleep on a narrow sleeping pad….I guess I’m not too picky.

    Greatest extravagance? Probably food. I don’t look for sales much when I grocery shop. I do try to use it all and not throw anything (especially something expensive) away without using it…but I really don’t have a budget and I should.

    What inspired me this week? Hmmm….I guess the warm sultry nights…inspired me to get the tent back out and into the car for this last trip up north.

    Soup, bread and cookies?! Be still my heart! 🙂 The calendar says Autumn, but the temps still say summer (high 80s; heat index 90s). I’m looking forward to some cooler days. For vacays, I’m with Dawn about bedbugs! And, I request a soft mattress and fluffy pillow…don’t like sleeping on a board with a flat pillow!

    I think I’m coming to your house to eat! It’s still hot and humid here, unfortunately, but so happy to hear you finally have some cooler days. Love your painting. It’s wonderful. 🙂

    Oh, your post is making me long for fall. We’re still hot and humid here, with little to suggest that cooler weather is on the way. I want to make bread and soup, and pick up pine cones, too.

    I always enjoy your inky creations, you manipulate them well. Soup and freshly baked bread, that sounds delightful! Pine cones are so plentiful! Acorns are falling from the oak, that should keep the squirrels busy for a while.
