Lilttle Gifts of Nature
It was a beautiful fall day today so I made a trip to the Snake River in town. I sat on one of the benches and drew a picture and then wrote in my journal. This little one came to visit and did not want to leave. She sat on the open page in my journal and then I tried to move her and she flew onto my shirt and stayed for the longest time. She had the tiniest wings and their shadow looked so pretty. I was trying to decide what message she was bringing to me today and I thought perhaps it is to appreciate the beauty around you, no matter how small it is.
This is how the river looked today, what a peaceful place it was.
This was today's drawing. I like how she turned out. She was really fun to draw. Maybe it was because I was outdoors enjoying the weather.
I got this new toy today. I had a 50% off coupon so after hearing about it on Sharon's blog and then an email from another blogger, thanks Suze, I decided I would just get it. I got the version with the carrying case and it came with 400 eyelets. I want to do a book like she did here So now I need to get a hold of a big old book to steal the covers. That is my next mission, time to hit the thrift stores.
