For our prompt of “Hero” today, I thought of comic book heroes, and how I’ve always envied the ones who had the ability to fly. Well, I always thought it would be super cool when I was a little kid. These days, I
Wonderful Charlie! I had a hero dog growing up. At the age of 5 I got to keep a male boxer puppy that my dad trained to be the watchdog at our grocery store which was next door. During the day we were inseparable. For 10 years he was my hero and saved me more than once. Stories for another day. Enjoy your pizza and your long weekend. Decompress and have some fun!
When I was a kid, a bunch of us would play superhero by taking turns jumping off the next door neighbor’s shed. It was probably about a six-foot jump. Proof that we might not be superheroes, but that kids don’t break all that easily because none of us ever got hurt. Some of things we used to do amaze me now to think of!
For our prompt of “Snack” today, I had only a few precious minutes to come up with something to sketch and indeed actually sketch it, so I just sketched the first idea that popped into my head. A little squirrel,
It’s quite likely that the year 2020 will be remembered by historians as a bad one, possibly a turning point in the future to come. But it’s easy to get lost in that thought and forget all the wonderful things we still have. I hope your troubles soon turn around, so you can catch your breath, finding it easier to be your usual happy self. If there is anything I can do, let me know.
Strawberries are a wonderful choice for a snack Charlie! My thoughts are with you as you struggle through. I’m sending you positive thoughts in the hope that on some level it helps to know we are concerned for you! Take care of yourself through this difficult time!💕
Most if not all of us are feeling some kind of anxiety during this time…hold on to your optimism and your family as these will help you get through. The uncertainty, the chaos and the unknown…I have my faith (and my art) to help me through and for all its just one day at a time..Praying for you and family and sending you a big hug…!!😊🤗🤗
May you overcome all the challenges with the support of Philippe and Phineas, and all of us sending you good vibes from all across the world! May you always have optimism brimming over the cup of life, Charlie!
Everything will be okay. Not that you’re not allowed free floating anxiety, because everyone is, but, it will be okay. We adapt. Its what humans do. So eat some comfort food and remember that you’re surrounded by love. It’ll be okay.
He looks like one of the little guys we’ve had visiting our yard lately. The squirrels around here are looking rather small. There seems to be more than in the past few years. I think we had a good birthing year this Spring! Good to see. We were awoken by a wonderful large rain thunderstorm this morning!! It was music to my ears even at 3:00 a.m. Thank you for all the prayers!
How cute! I probably wouldn’t even care if a squirrel came and helped itself to the garden. They are just too darn adorable!
Yes, it’s hard to be particularly optimistic at the moment – for various reasons – and that does draw us back to the known and the constants. You have the rest of your trio, and I daresay countless people have had you and your posts over these trying times. You are doing so much for people, and the support shown here proves it! Wishing you plenty of pizza, Animal Crossing New Horizons and, yes, even ice cream. <3
Hey Charlie, just remember this: The world does not end til God tells it to. It is only man who tries to annihilate other man and what is man? This too shall pass. About that I have no qualms or thoughts. Right now I have my watercolours set up and several retreats for some reason all in the last two weeks of this month. My plants are happy and this time there is no mold in the apartment (from my overly generous watering hand). It is beautifully quiet and if the smoke ever clears I will resume my daily race walk whereby I pass joggers. Life goes on is what I am saying. Just like nature. You will too!
As for strawberries, cook in a bit of water and freeze. I did that with packaged cranberries, made that into a sauce with only half the sugar or less, and froze in little containers to put over my hot rice cereal.
I’m not sure about upside down, but I know some people have had a problem with images posting sideways, and that seems to happen if the image is too large. Usually if they resize it to something smaller it posts correctly.
I always adjust my image on my phone before I post it and since I’ve been doing that I don’t have an issue. I use my phone because that is what I use to take the pictures of my sketchbook. Good luck with future postings as I know it can be frustrating.
