My soft drink fix.

I had run out of cokes and had not had one in three days. I also had not been feeling very well in that time. Well time to get my sugar fix. I went to the store and remedied that. I still am not feeling very well but the coke helped. And the cookies I also bought. (Shhh don't tell hubby)

Today I sketched the first item on the new Scavenger Hunt #9. On the list was an outdoor sculpture. Well no sculptures here, so while at the store I bought a small ceramic dog. It is not very big but could be used outdoors, so I drew it. That is the closest I could get to an outdoor sculpture. I didn't want to have to drive around, find one in a yard, and sit in front of their house sketching it. Doing that in this town could get you into trouble. A police visit asking what you are doing. Crime rate makes people really suspicious thinking you are casing their place for a robbery. I don't need that kind of headache. And statuary shops are not close to my home.

A few of the Hunt items will be a challenge. One will be very difficult. We have to do a self-portrait of the back of us. That will require maneuvering of at least 2 mirrors. May have to take some contortionist lessons.

I spent a late morning in bed. Even with that I am still really tired. Can't figure out what is wrong but it is zapping my energy. I can't seem to accomplish even simple household chores the last couple days without weearing me out. But...I can sit and draw. Oh well. Better than sitting and doing nothing.

I heard about some new Derwent pencils at WC. They are Inktense pencils. I went online and ordered a set of 24. So now I have that set coming and a 24 set of the Derwent drawing pencils. I may never run out of practice to do. Can't wait for both to try. Easier to order on ebay and get them sooner than to order from a shop even tho I have to pay more. When the new items come out first they are only offered in the UK. I haven't dared order from there as I am sure the postage would be costly. It's costly enough just here in the U.S. I still haven't taken the time to play with my graphitints so have lots of stuff to keep me busy.
