Some Assorted Squash

#WorldWatercolorGroup - Day 28 - Assorted Squash - Doodlewash

Today we have a little assortment of squash in answer to the latest prompt. As we’re nearing the end of the month, it’s almost time for the December challenge, so if you’re curious to know what’s coming up next, then by all means check it out! It’s autumn here for just a few weeks before we head into winter, which arrives just a few days before Christmas. We often get a little assorted of ornamental squash to set out on the table. For a brief moment it’s a decorative centerpiece, but it quickly gets covered up as we tend to use our dining table as a place to collect things. Thankfully we have someone who comes to clean our house every couple weeks so it forces us to find the table again only to bury it once more soon after. I like to think that we’re not messy, but simply comfortable. Though I’m sure the former is probably more accurate in the end. But we’re happy and content, so that’s what really counts. 

Though most of the bugs after the WordPress update have been squashed on this site, the community gallery is still not functioning properly, so apologies for that (in the interim, please see this note). There is now a team of WordPress.com developers scratching their heads trying to figure out why it mysteriously stopped working as it should. Once they get back to me, I’ll hopefully have a solution or will be moving forward with a second option. Thanks so much for your continued patience. Doodlewash is an ambitious experiment created by yours truly. A watercolor illustrator and by no means a programmer. It’s rather amazing that only a single function has proven problematic. But it’s all part of the grand adventure and I’m confident that I’ll be able to solve the final piece of this little puzzle. Speaking of puzzles, I hope my mother has gotten us a jigsaw puzzle to put together while in Texas this weekend. That kind is my favorite as it always comes with the solution on the box.

It’s always a strange time just before heading out of town. In my head, I’m thinking of things I should remember, but in reality, I’m not doing anything about them. Instead, in typical fashion, I will wait until the last possible moment to pack and then forget things in the process. I know that planning things out in life is probably a good thing, but to me it’s always just been an enviable skill. My daily doodlewashes and posts are always put together in real time. What you see and what you read literally just happened. It’s a bizarre approach to blogging, but it’s not that different from real life. Even if I had more time in the day, I don’t think I would change a thing. The thing I love most about this site, whether it’s my own rambles, Jessica’s wonderful posts, or the fabulous posts written by our own community, is that it’s just a group of watercolor lovers giving their honest thoughts and opinions on art and life. That’s what makes this site so unique and special. There’s no master plan in place. It’s just a hangout for people to share what what they love and what makes them happy, even if it’s just some assorted squash.

    Lovely paiting as per. Please to here most of the bugs have been squashed. Weird that we’re a visual community and that’s the one function not working. I’m sure you’ll get there.

      Hehe… I know right? Of ALL the things that hand to bug out it had to be that one. So happy that it’s all working again now, though! 😃💕

  7. Lovely lovely painting of squashes, Charlie.

    I was laughing reading part on how decorative squashes get covered up by many other “collectables” on your table. It sounds somehow very familiar to me. Our cleaning lady is coming every Thursday, and we’re always in a huge panic on Wed evening, trying to “clean” things before the cleaning lady come for cleaning, haha…

    W.r.t. WordPress! Their programmers are busy trying to solve some serious problems that compromised 900K WP-based websites. The problem has been reported on Nov 13, which is approx. time when Doodlewash shown some strange behaviour too.

      Interesting!! That’s the same date of the problems here, though I don’t actually use those plugins. The anti-spam went into overdrive which caused the gallery issue though… now solved thankfully! Wow… crazy little cyber world we live in… and all we want to do is post and share watercolor!! 😃💕

    I love your squashes! Or is it still just ‘squash’ when plural, I dunno. lol Around our house I tend to add ‘ies’ to make things plural and just a little friendlier. So squash would be squashies, lol. Makes like a little more fun. Enjoy your trip!
