Its cold and snowy and windy and miserable out today. There was a coyote in the field behind us and Dave was rushing to get a picture and he slipped on the ice fell on his knees and twisted his back. So he has been in bed all day.
I have been reading my grandmothers letters from 1901-1903 this afternoon and wow I can't stop. Now that I have them in order its easy to follow their story. Can you imagine your salary being $10.00 a month. Then there was the time her sister after giving birth almost went mad. The doctors wanted to throw her into an insane asylum but the family resisted and nursed her back to health themselves. Then there are stories between the lines when you have to guess what is going on. Such fascinating reading amongst the mundane normal stuff.
I had some extra paper left over from making the journal so I have been sketching on it at odd moments.
I drew this scary lady around 4 o'clock this morning she sort of reminds me of Joni Mitchell. Now that I say that I think her cheek bones are not high enough.
This afternoon I went for a totally different look.
I hope you are having some fun this weekend.
