October?? How did that happen? Sketches

I cannot believe it is October.  Time flies when you are having fun.  We arrived home on Saturday and are trying to get back into a routine.  A real mess in the house of course.  I think it might be easier to pack.  Unpacking means you have to find some place to put things!

I sketched in the travel sketchbook with the Micron 03 over several days.  I added a bit of color with pencils on the last one.  We didn't have internet again at a hotel and then none when we got home.  It is a small company and they didn't turn it on until Monday.  Sigh, living in the country has perks but not good internet.  We can go back to satellite but it is double the price or more.  We will see.

The top half of this is for Scavenger Hunt 467.  I didn't get them posted to the Hunt, but putting them here for the record.
Number 16, in a bag - camp chair
Number 17, bed - at hotel in Balmorhea, Texas

The bottom half and the rest are from Scavenger Hunt 468  http://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1413563

Number 1, stuff from car - suitcase, etc.
Number 2, book - on the Kindle
Number 3, aid to reading - eye glasses

Number 4, landscape
Number 5, organic
Number 6, man made - trailers

Number 7, pet/animal - squirrel
Number 8, car
Number 9, cooking - grill, why does it have a chain?
Number 10, smooth - glass cup and table top
Number 11, textured - brush

Number 12, handmade - Gene's cane
Number 13, art stuff - plein air bag full
Number 14, snack - chips

Number 15, geometric - corner of coaster
Number 16, treat - rice cake with peanut butter, cream cheese and raising (I'm addicted and have this almost every morning.)

I will post more photos and info of our great visit to South Bend and the trip home.  Our summer was super and long.  We put about 10,000 miles on the car.  Yikes!!

Hi, Joan. It is good to be home. We are almost done. I had room to cook dinner last night! You must know the feeling, too!

Jennifer Rose Phillip said...

unpacking is the least fun part of traveling :/ lots of nice sketches here :)

Jo Castillo said...

Thanks, Jennifer Rose. You are right. We are still putting things away. Usually it all ends in my studio, but this year we have done a bit better, mostly art stuff made it in here. Ha.

I'm sure it is good to be home - once you unpack. We've had some internet problems too. Maybe I will post it on my blog. October has been busy here.

Bag Blog, hi there! It is good to be here. The internet and phone folks have the country folks in a bind, they can charge what they want. Hope your world calms down!
