Today we have a little afternoon snack that I was dreaming about this afternoon. This is not sketched from life as it wouldn’t have lasted long enough to actually sketch it. As it was, I have very little time so this is a fast and loose doodlewash for this entry. Anything with whipped cream, and I suddenly lose all will power and start devouring it. This thought seemed uncouth to me, so I got to thinking about a lovely little afternoon spot of tea with a nice little biscuit and something sweet to go with it. Anything plated like this always encourages a fair amount of restraint. Oh, you could go all animal wild on it, but something about the look of it all, makes one pause and take things one little bite at a time.
As I rush to complete this post, I realize I probably need to take things one little bite at a time more. I get so excited and enthralled by so many things that I’m bouncing around like a pinball and never really sure where I’ll land next. Tonight, I’m going to relax with friends and enjoy the evening slowly. It’s been a long time since I’ve slowed down, so I’m going to give it a go and see what happens. I hope all of you are enjoying a wonderful evening, morning, or whatever time it is where you live! If there’s whipped cream where you are, please refrain from telling me, as I’d only be jealous.
