Under Attack

Attack of the ice storm...

Attack of the starlings....

 Attack of the school supplies...

Yes, that is indeed a robin in the middle of December sitting in an ice covered tree. Brrr. Then a thousand starlings flew in like a big black carpet, then flew away. The school supplies? Well, that's what I found on a trip to a teacher supply store. I keep forgetting that store is there. They sell all kinds of teacher supplies, but are open to the public. It's been a long time since my last visit, and I was surprised to see they now sell a lot of scrapbooking supplies. Plus mini file folders in different colors. And library pockets and pocket cards in all colors.  And narrow masking tape in different colors.  Not that I would buy any of that... okay, fine, I bought all of it.

Even the ice storm did not deter me from my plan yesterday. I just got a later start than I had planned. I sure didn't want to miss out on a day with my freakishly tall friend (who uses the word 'freakishly' a lot) and my freakishly sick friend (being cared for so lovingly by her freakishly kind husband). We made freakishly cool books. A fun time was had by all.

[alternative pronunciations:  Drar-ing, drawin' ]

One of my biggest frustrations in life is that I can't draw.  I know how to hold a pencil, and I know what things look like. So why can't I put the two together and draw things?  I guess it's like everything else, if you do it enough, you will master it.  So I think I just need to make an effort to draw more.

Nevertheless, I can doodle enough to remind myself of things I don't want to forget.  Like this....
