Today I got a very respectable amount of artwork done! A piece of gift art and two warm-ups along with another commission that I inked the entire background of.
Like yesterday, I was up early and went out on a long walk, about an hour long. Early on my walk, I spotted something that made my heart leap. The burrowing owls were still out!
It is prohibited to disturb burrowing owls, so I did not get overly close. I crossed the street and walked on that sidewalk but that was it. One hid, but the other one stared at me all the way! So very cute.
During my walks I often rescue snails, earthworms and tiny frogs from the hot sun and put them in the grass. It’s hard to tell in these pics, but this guy was rather big-shelled for a bradybaena similaris. I wanted him for my tank, but he’d managed to grow so big and beautiful right there in the urban wild. I couldn’t tear him from his natural habitat.
That aside, I managed my eating rather well today and exercised, too, but did not drink enough water at all. 😟💧 I must make sure I drink enough tomorrow, because we are going out to the Swap Shop if the rain doesn’t cancel that –and it will involve a lot of walking.
We haven’t been there in forever. I’m really excited about going.
In the afternoon I read the last book in the Hagwood trilogy some more while having my coffee.
I can’t believe everything will be over after this book. I will really miss these characters. I wonder if Kernella will get Finnen at the end. As insufferable as she is in the beginning, she has really grown on me.
After I’m done with this, I need to pick another book that I left unfinished –either The Vampire Lestat or Tarzan. Once I am done with those two, I will reward myself with Jurassic Park.
Anyway, have a pic of some of my slimy guys at home:
And a GIF of Tomoyo playfully destroying our chairs:
That’s it for today! I hope I’ll have plenty to share after tomorrow’s adventures. Goodnight, one and all!
