Winged Migration - The Bar head Goose

These aptly named birds were shown in a snowstorm. 
It was challenging to capture the bitter cold.

Winged Migration - The White Stork

I love this movie! I have the dvd, and have watched it at least 5 times. (I'm kind of embarrassed to say it's really been 10 times!) The birds and the images are just lovely, and there may be more to come from this!

The Kitchen

I'd like to sketch a plan of each room in my house, with notes about each room. I like to sit at the counter with my coffee, and enjoy the view. It's not a huge kitchen, but it certainly works for me.

Coconut oil:
So far, I am really enjoying trying this.  Used to fry eggs and salmon patties, it adds a certain 'je ne sais quoi' to the taste.  It's also supposed to be more healthy for you than some other oils!  The young man in the health food section explained different ways to use it, but said he thought the best use was on his face!

As part of my half-hearted attempt at minimizing and simplifying my life, I took an honest look at the quantity of sketchbooks I have. Some have been partially used, but none of these are full. So I hope not to buy anymore until there is a significant dent in this pile! Yes, I need to get going and sketch more!

Angry Orchard beer tap

Sitting at the local Blind Tiger bar, this little object caught my eye. 
Not a beer, I just found out! Instead, it is a "crisp and refreshing cider, 
its fresh apple aroma and slightly sweet, 
ripe apple flavor make it hard to resist." But it IS a fun to draw tap!
It reminds me of the trees in the Wizard of Oz!
