Hi everyone. I hope you are having a nice weekend so far.
My adventures today included a walk where I twisted my ankle on a rock in the road and then, since I was walking the dogs, couldn't catch myself as they were moving forward and pulling me forward also. So down I went onto the road, and now my knees are sore from the landing. And my ankle is slightly swollen and a little tender.
But at least I can say the dogs came over full of concern as to why I was laying in the road and had to slobber me in dog kisses. And even though I didn't continue further down the road, I did manage to walk home.
And being as stubborn as I am, when I got home, I decided to rake a little bit so I could see if any plants were coming up, and low and behold, some were.
Even my rhubarb is popping up.
I love this.
And last evening after spending our day on computers, the hubby and I took a little drive to check out how the ice was on a few of the lakes nears us. Every place we went was empty so I hopped out and take a photo on my phone, and then got back in his truck. It was nice to take a little scenic drive for an hour.
The one closest to us had had ice out. It's pretty early when it happens in March.
The one my mother-in-law's house is on wasn't quite there yet.
But there were lots of openings in the ice so I don't think it will be too many days.
And finally we stopped at the Big Lake, and the bay by us was rather open too. Not 100% as there were still some ice floats s you can see in this bottom photo.
Usually ice out happens sometime in April. Since this is only one bay on the whole lake, it will be interesting to see when this happens this year.
So I have 2 pieces of art to show you today. First I have another tag for the Bunnies and Butterflys challenge at Tag Tuesday.
I was playing with a new set of people stamps by Studio LIght-Art by Marlene.
And then I also have another journal page for Eileen's green challenge at Art Journal Journey.
I actually made this page back in January for an earlier Art Journal Journey challenge but never showed it to you. I started by adding this alphabet page onto the watercolor background paper. The alphabet was colored but the background was white, so I inked the whole page once it was dry and I think it blended together pretty well. Then I added this stamped, colored and fuzzy cut rag doll man.
One reason I never shared it as I thought it might need something more, but then I decided it was what it was, so here you go.
That's enough from me today. Hope you are staying sane in this trying times, and staying healthy too.
Thanks for visiting.
