Sketch and Rain Photos

My sketch for the Scavenger hunt was done in about 15 minutes with a ZIG Millennium pen in my generic sketchbook.

The#10 backpack is an old one Gene uses for his bicycle stuff when we travel. # 9 The trash bin is a wooden box he built for me to match my cabinets. It is stressed blue wood. You can sit on it like a bench and when you open it it has two plastic trash bins, one for recycle and one for trash. Pretty nifty.

It tried to rain today. Rain showers were very spotty. We got about a 5 minute rain in the sunshine. It doesn't show very well in the photos, but looked so pretty with the silver rain drops falling and glittering in the sunshine. Gene took the photos while I was making tortillas. I burned two, I haven't been making them as often and couldn't get in the rhythm. How soon we forget.

Okay, Jo, you have to tell me how to make tortillas. Remember my blog post about the dog's breakfast I made when I tried?

And consider yourself blog-tagged! You know you wanna play! Rules
on my blog today.

Oh, my! I go away for 24 minutes and look what happens! I read your blog, Maggie, before I read this, so had to come look.

I will tell you how to make tortillas, I thought about it when you tried, but didn't know you well enough then. Ha.
