Quick Happy Holiday!

December 24, 2019  •  3 Comments

Still busy here but hey, no getting bored that is for sure.   I wanted to pop out a quick post since I actually have the day off for Christmas even though it is mid week.

As mentioned the weekend ended with some marathon dog grooming.   I didn't get to do it outside (which is more work cleaning  up for me) but I did get hair off all but one.  Honestly, he's so cute and old and how do you break it to this face (waiting for his dinner) that he really is on the agenda for a bath and groom - soon?

So here is some entertainment for you - a really short time lapse of 3 hours I will never get back.   I also did another  2 hours on Sterling, but you'll get the idea.

One does not dress up when doing dog grooming as you can tell!  The poodles spent 2 days shaking heads and acting generally like I did unfathomable harm to them.   Josie is pretty sure she'll freeze to death now.

Oliver is just extremely happy he has no hair!

Today, Christmas Eve we woke up to a little bit of snow so since I actually had time for a break from work this morning I went out for some scenery.   Always need more practice with the macro lens.

See not TOTALLY brown although it was by mid afternoon when it melted off.   We'll take the moisture although not as joyous as my friends in Australia that are finally seeing rain!  

I just finished another online lesson of Inky Art School and my book arrived yesterday.   I'm working right now on flowers and trying to make sure to practice practice practice.   I'm not yet doing anything in ink but rather doing pencil in my sketch book (where my Zentangles also live).   The flowers force me to work on circles and shapes that are not straight lines - which I lean towards as they are easy for me.  I'm really enjoying it and already have some ideas for actual pictures.

I think some of this will also be happening during my day off.

So I hope all of you have a chance to be creative during the holidays.  I am going to leave you with the only song I got recorded for the holiday.  Honestly I've NEVER liked playing for people and apparently the  phone video qualifies as "people"!   Anyway - Happy Holidays!

OK, so permit me a technical question......what clipper are you using? We just go through Wahl professional cordless clippers with 5 in one blades and it's getting old. The batteries don't charge properly and new ones cost more than a whole new clipper. Help!
