Sketching Treat for Hunt 406

I sketched on the porch this morning while I had my coffee and snack (rice cake, loaded).  Beautiful morning and a nice cool 66 degrees or so.  It quickly went to 80 by the time I came in.  It rained about .3 of an inch last night and we expect more tonight.  The weekend will bring more for a saturated Texas.  Lots of life lost and destruction is the bad part.  The end of the draught is a good thing.  Hard to wrap your mind around.

I sketched with the Micron 05 and added watercolor from my Koi kit.  It has a waterbrush that holds the water, nice for sketching.

Number 4, renewable energy - a flashlight Gene got for Christmas from Mike and Janice.  You shake it for power.  It works surprisingly well!
Number 5, treat - the last bit of gluten free carrot cake from the wedding.  I'm saving it for tonight.  It is a bit dry but still very good.

I thought the sketch of the carrot cake was some fried chicken before reading the description and was surprised you'd have such a thing...and then (!) that you'd sketch such a thing! :-)

Joanna, ha. It does look like fried chicken and you are right, I wouldn't have that or be eating it! The cake was good. Heh.
