At the Lake

This litte boat is a wooden model that sits on the porch.
We only have one bathroom in the cottage so, this little washstand is kept busy with all the make-up and hair-doing. It's hard to tell in my drawing, but there is a big mirror over it--and that is how you are seeing the reflection of the door and lake.
This swing is always the first seat taken on the porch. Usually one person sits on it as mom is doing here---or with our feet up on the chains to keep it moving--like a swinging recliner!

Walked 2.5 miles

and stopped downtown to make this sketch. I love the old buildings would be so neat to live in one of the spaces above the stores. Lots of them have very cool windows...most are not being used. Sorry about the quality of this.....I just started wearing contacts and using reading glasses cause I need bifocals.....yikes.....I forgot my reading glasses on the walk, so I could not see the page as well as I would have liked. We could call this semi-blind contour...LOL.

Mall Walking

Not my favorite place to walk, but today I went with four 15-16 year old girls to a big mall up north. They had fun shopping and I used the time to walk, people watch and draw. Probably walked about 3 miles. At least it was a big mall with lots of stores I don't usually get to see.
