Pentagram series

Well, yesterday didn’t go as well as hoped, the brewery I wanted to visit was closed, (maybe I should read the link I put in my blog), our friends were busy, and the tubes Mark bought were nothing amazing. But we had fun, I liked walking all around the Gibraltar Trade Center, though all I could find to buy was some Amish cheese and noodles. Mark did make it up to me by stopping at the Woodward Avenue Brewery for dinner. I probably should have gone for their Vanilla Porter, the Porter I chose (sorry, don’t remember the name) was bitter, which was cool, but not as “chewy” as I like.

I promised you some watercolors, here are the first three.

Where I Stood…

I stood in front of Harmony, thinking about the day ahead and about yesterday. I’m thinking about the party I’m going to miss, but I’ll be up in the northeast suburbs of Detroit, looking at tube purchases with Mark, possibly stopping to see some friends, checking out the Gibraltar Trade Center, and maybe, if I’m lucky, quaffing a brew at Dragonmead. It’s kind of a small road trip, and I love road trips. I’m also thinking about the ten little watercolors I did yesterday, how happy I am with nine of them, and how I should just throw the tenth one out, or redo it. I’ll show them to you over the next few days. I’m thinking maybe I should spend more time on the art that I might show, the art that I’m better at making, and less time on the silly watercolors, but I enjoy them so much! Now I’m thinking it’s time to jump in the shower. See ya!

Where I Stand Sunday is an ongoing photo essay examining the different places Lynn Krawczyk spends her life standing. Too often we take for granted the everyday places we spend our lives walking on. If you’d like to join her by posting a photo on Sunday of places you’ve been on your blog/photo hosting site/website, leave a comment on her Sunday posts telling her where she can find you/your photo and she’ll add a link to her sidebar so others can find you. I am one of those that Lynn has badgered into joining her, I have changed it to “where I stood”, because right now I’m sitting in front of the computer, not standing anywhere.

Four little boxes

The past couple of days I’ve been working on little boxes for presents. I finished them last night and am pretty happy with how they came out. This is the second go, I put them together and hated the watercolors I did for the fronts, so I redid them. I’m happy I did.

Meet Rhythm

Quite some time ago I introduced you to my evil cat, Harmony. Now it’s time to meet the sweet cat, Rhythm. Wikipedia defines rhythm as “the variation of the length and accentuation of a series of sounds or other events” I think she qualifies an “other events”

Rhythm is not happy about that flashing in her eyes. If she didn’t move so much, I wouldn’t need the flashing.

Rhythm LOVES to drink water from the faucet. Fortunately, she has not learned how to turn on the faucet yet. Here, she is threatening me, “if you don’t turn on that faucet….”.

Here she is, next to her beloved faucet.

Rhythm at the edge of my bed, giving me the winky eye.

This is how most my photos of her come out!

Mark comes to bed very late, anytime from one a.m. to five or six a.m., and Rhythm usually comes to bed with him. She finds a spot between us, and watches TV with Mark. Mark tries to watch shows Rhythm likes.

Harmony and Rhythm both had the pleasure of visiting the vet yesterday. I’m pleased to say, Rhythm has only gained two ounces! (Harmony’s up a couple of pounds, but she wasn’t full grown at her last weigh-in.) The vet proclaimed them both healthy.

Where as Harmony has many nicknames (pest, fancy pants, anti-christ, furry cat, jingles), Rhythm is usually just Rhythm or grey cat. She has a beautiful grey coat, and we think she probably has some Russian Blue in her. She is sweet, and generally hides if many people are over. You can usually find her under our bed, I think it’s one place Harmony leaves her alone.

Where I Stood…

I stand amid the many wonderful and strange hostess gifts and Christmas presents people brought to my party. Some of which I don’t remember who gave them. Who handed me that box of bones again? I know that beer left under my pillow was from Julia. What cool things!!! Thank you all!
