Pointy iPad Sketch

Almost a week since I've been here and not much to say.  Really, can you believe that?

I got out my new iPad to sketch "pointy" on and the pencil was acting funny.  I realized that I had broken the nib when I dropped it on the hard tile floor.  I ordered a new supply and they should be here on Tuesday.  Of course the first Apple Pencil came with an extra nib.  The new one is $30 more and does not have any extra anything except free engraving.  Really needed that.

For Scavenger Hunt 683


#1 something pointy - Apple Pencil in a gray cover
#2 another something pointy - a Walgreens ball point pen

Sketched on my iPad with the App Brushes and my fingers.

Health note:

I had surgery last Wednesday and am recovering well.  No cancer.  I came home on Thursday and am on a regular diet.  Restricted to no lifting or hard work but heck, that is my daily routine anyway.  Won't be out and about for a few more days, but doing OK.

Gene has done the grocery shopping for the past few years.  I started doing it again during the Covid thing as I could move a bit faster.  He has been shopping now for a few times.  We end up on a different diet as he buys "different" groceries.  All good, though.  I really dislike shopping.

Hey Jo, glad you are healing up and there is no sign of cancer. Keep resting and healing. I’m with you on the grocery shopping. Love and hugs.

Hi, Rose, thanks so much. My usual mode is resting so some orders I don't have trouble following. Hugs.

Jennifer Rose said...

Hi, Jennifer Rose. Yep feeling pretty good. Actually got dressed today so can go outside and to get a burger! Yep the pencil engraving if for tech snobs. :-)

I'm glad all is well with you and no cancer. I can imagine Gene shopping. Although I do most of the shopping, Toby does like to go with me now and then. He buys way more than I do. Lately he has been making me practice being on a budget for when we retire. He would like to get the shopping bill down. If he stays home, the bill goes down :)

I posted a recent painting on my blog and one of my little art student's art pieces. You may have missed them while you were recovering. I always like your input on my art.

Thanks, Bag Blog. Our grocery shopping is buy what we like. Gene does tend to buy more extra things like Twinkies or stuff like that. I like him to shop, though. I'm not a shopper period.

I'll check your blog. I must have been asleep! Hugs and thanks again for checking on me.
