We’ve been getting the house back to normal. The poinsettias are still on the patio and we are thinking of moving them to the garden. My calla lilies are starting to come up. There was a woodpecker drumming today and we were cracking up because this little guy found some serious percussion. One thing I love about Florida is the wildlife.
I switched over to Christmas-y, December-y borders.
Here is my week long daily doodle page from our first week down here. i managed to fit this in during unpacking and reorganizing breaks.
Well we survived the drive South to Florida. It was an exhausting adventure. The packing was the worst. Right now I am sitting in our garage as a temp studio. I still have a lot of unpacking to do and I am not sure if I want to unpack and just move it all later when the studio is ready, or just leave it in boxes.
The boxes annoy me.
Plus I need my books….especially my cookbooks since the holidays are coming.
Mack is on the carpet near me. Chloe is snoring in the chair with my father-in-law, in the living room. Our house is smaller than the one on Long Island but I don’t mind that at all. I set up the kitchen for living and cooking instead of snow bird mode. The lanai is now an outdoor living space instead of just a dining area.
I actually don’t mind the garage being my studio when the door is open. There’s nothing across the road except two undeveloped lots. Occasionally there are critters that visit, mostly of the lizard persuasion. There’s a turtle that comes around to graze on the lawn and tropical birds. Once in a while we hear riff riff raccoons knocking over trash cans or squabbling in one of the lots across the road.
Catching up, here are the past 3 weeks of daily “‘toons” I have done but didn’t post yet…..
Here is my daily one-box-per-day spread for Inktober Week 3.
This is a daily ritual I do anyway but this month I decided to take more time embellishing the borders. I usually spend Sunday evenings drawing the borders and I find it quite relaxing. This way the page is ready for the first entry on Sunday morning.
Here are my daily vignettes for week 2:
