I'm Here! Sketches for Hunt 376, Photos

I'm here!  I haven't fallen off the face of the earth ...  yet!

We arrived home about a week ago.  We have attempted to unpack and start a routine again.  One of the problems is that it doesn't seem like we have been gone.  All normal here except part of our routines.  Ah well, soon to return.

I sketched for Scavenger Hunt 376.  I haven't missed many Hunts in total, but a few this year.  I sketched in the large sketchbook because we are home again.  I had not unpacked all my "tools" so ended up using the Prismacolor Premier 03 that is about out of ink.  It keeps on going, but some of the lines are faint.

Making the lines stronger on the computer darkens the background and lets the sketches on the back of the page show through.  Maybe you can see the sketches well enough.  I thought the sketch of Gene was so like him when I was sketching, but now it doesn't look like him.  Hmmm.

Number 1, put on your feet - shoes
Number 2, something you listen to - Gene, of course!
Number 3, something you walk through - the screen door on the porch
Number 4, something you exercise with - Gene's Total Gym, difficult perspective

Before we came back home we spent a short time with my sister in Grants, New Mexico.  The drive out there from Albuquerque has beautiful bluffs and mesas.  They were beautiful with the dark rain clouds in the area.  It rained super hard in Grants just as we were leaving.

 Between Albuquerque and Grants

Laguna Pueblo

Rain over curb in just a couple of minutes.

Wipers going super fast, look at the size of the drops.

Run off at overpass, total of maybe five minutes of rain.

Mesas on the way back to Albuquerque.

 More rain near Lamesa, Texas.

A couple of the wind towers.  I tried to get the natural gas, wind towers and oil wells in one photo but it didn't come out.  Sigh..

 Back home

The trailer is growing morning glories!

You drew and interesting angle on the exercise machine. Kind of looks like a robot.

I love the morning glory trailer.

Hi Bag Blog! You are right, should make Gene's exercise easier if it is a robot. Ha. The trailer looks very neat.

more lovely photos :D really like the one of the mesas (new word to me) :)

Jo Castillo said...

Jennifer Rose, thank you. Maybe you looked it up, but mesa is table in Spanish and the hills are more or less flat so they became called mesas at least that is what I think. Ha.
