I sat tired last night after a day in Adelaide and picked up my pen and this is what came about.
Sometimes I wonder about the things that go on in my head. It was fun looking around the room and deciding what to stack ontop of what.
I have had a funny week, 3 new foals, so early rising to check that all is ok, a trip to Adelaide, well really Port Adelaide to meet up with P and we went to a demonstration of the use of Derwent inktense pencils and blocks as well as shiva sticks, I know about shiva stiks but wasnt sure about the inktense blocks but decided to buy some as they are nice to paint with. We were the only 2 there so we had a lovely time but very disapointing for the art shop, although I think I made up for it by buying a silk screen as well and a brush.
We then had a wander around the area, took photos, went to a gallery and had lunch overlooking the river at a nice little cafe.
I left at 8.30 and was home about 3.30 so a longish day and I am fed up with feeling tired at the end of it but I suppose I will have to accept the fact that age is catching up with me and I must remember to take things a bit more slowly.
Having said that I am going out to cut back a few things in the garden.

Good grief, no wonder you are tired! I don't do this much in a year! Hehehe. It must have been nice to learn about the inktense pencils. I just did a course on Copic Markers. They are awesome! Isn't it just the greatest to sit down at end of a long day and relax and draw???

Age - ah yes I know all about that. I get very tired too but usually find that just a few minutes sit down perks me up again.

A 15-20 minute nap does wonders for me.

Hi Penny! Thanks for the note about Blogger. And your comment is actually ringing a bell...... However, I've now changed browsers and w/ some variation in loading pics, I seem to be back in business. (Famous last words!)

Nice little pic here. Hope the garden work went well. I am due for some of that! Cheers!
