Out where I live, driving home can be quite the adventure. There are plenty of wild critters and most of them don’t have much sense when it comes to vehicles. So everyone in the car keeps an eye out for them and the driver goes as carefully as he/she can. Here’s a tile in honor of all the animals on the road we dodge as we drive home.
I was looking at my collection of Zentangle patterns when 2n5 caught my eye on the first page. It reminded me of the bird feeders we have just outside our dining area window. The suet is in a wire box hanging off a snow roof pole and we moved the seed feeder under the roof as well to keep it out of the snow. We are entertained daily by our feathered guests.
I’ve been working on my 2019 personal challenge of creating a Zentangle tile each week on a theme. Here’s one tile in honor of pies. 🙂 My son married into a family that has a Thanksgiving rule of “more pies than people.” Gotta love that family. We had 23 people that day with 27 pies. What made it!
And here are tiles that honor falling snow (we’ve had a bit) and the Christmas season with all it’s greenery and decorations.
All I need is four more tiles to finish out the year.
My sweetie and I ran away to the coast for a few days.
We’ve had a season of hard work (getting the snow roof up and reworking our main ministry website) and we needed the downtime.
We stayed with friends and did a bit of art.
Here’s a close up of one of Paul’s paint pours on a canvas. Silicone in the paint creates cells of different colors.
And, of course, we had to go to the beach. (I made a new friend.)
It was an overcast misty day with many lovely views.
And because, well, art, here is a tile honoring the beautiful waves of the Oregon coast.
We finally got the bunnies all tucked away in a winter bunny barn. The cages are all lined up on shelves with angled boards underneath to roll the bunny poo to one side. (Bunny ownership is so exciting.) 😉
Here’s my weekly tile honoring the new bunny barn.
Well, this is it. I finished the Inktober challenge and in October too! I did run a number of patterns together in each tile, rather than playing with them one at a time, but I got it done. 🙂
I was a bit taken aback by well, well, who. The pattern looked very difficult to draw, but the step-outs were easy and voilà! there it is. Thanks, Stephanie Jennifer, for the #InktoberTangles2019 challenge.
There was a knock at the door and three young boys tumbled in with this!
Plus a whole box full of toads! They found them in holes dug for foundation footers (the toads had jumped in but couldn’t get out).
They’ll find them a new and safer home near our pond.
We just a call from our son a bit ago. He warned us not to wander out because there were a couple of moose by the pond, a momma and her calf.
I took this picture from our front porch and it’s dusk so the picture isn’t great. I did lighten it up a bit so you can see them. They are on the far side of the pond standing to the right of a bench. The bench is your standard size park bench so you can get a general idea of how big they get. I would have probably come up to about the momma’s shoulder.
Followup: Here’s a picture my DIL was able to get from her front porch. You can see the park bench off to the far left.
