Tiger picture

I drew a tiger today.  I love Walk the Wilderness blog.    They always take beautiful pictures of animals.  I saw this tiger just standing there, with it’s back to the camera.  I really liked it, so I thought, I will draw that on my calendar.  Now my drawing in not exactly like the picture, there was not enough room in my square on the calendar.

This is day 16 picture.

I went to the store today and bought some paint so I  painted this one with paint.

Yesterday I drew this picture from a shampoo bottle.  It is watermelon shampoo and it has this dog with some watermelon.   I used color pencil, markers, and puff paint on this one.


This is the calendar so far.  The 8th one, I painted over.  I drew a picture and my son hated it.  So I covered it over. When I first started the calendar drawings, I just scribbled the pictures on there.  No I take it off the wall and do a better job.  I am not going to draw a picture tomorrow.  I already wrote on that space months ago.

Gold show and a Lamborghini

  We went to the gold show today.  It was over in Mesa, AZ.  Hubby wanted some classifiers.  They are they round plastic sifter things with screens in them, different sizes to sift dirt to find gold. 

We  parked the car about a block away.  The parking lots were full.  There were a lot of people going to the gold show.  It mainly is a lot of booths set up to sell stuff to sift dirt or wash dirt to find gold.  It was so crowded inside you could hardly walk around.  I guess a lot of people want to go find gold.  The tools to find gold is pretty costly.  Gold value is way up now, so people want to find it.

We used to go out in the desert and look for gold.  My husband had all the equipment to use.  After we moved from Nevada, he got rid of it all.  Now that we live out west again, he wants to go gold hunting again.  We have found little specks of gold.  Nothing big.  I told him we should just go look for some, some weekend.  The weather is so nice out, it is in the 70’s.  The sun feels so good on you skin.  It would give us something to do, just get out of the house and into the sun. 

I have been eating an orange everyday lately.  It is juicy and sweet and tastes so good.  It is like I am getting sunshine in a orange fruit.  Those oranges sit on the tree and soak up sunshine for months, getting tasty and delicious.  When I peel the orange and the pungent oil on the skin is strong with orange smell, I can’t wait to eat the orange and drink in the sweet juice and liquid sunshine.

Oh yeah…..the people at the gold show……a lot of the guys looked like those old prospectors.  Long beards and cowboy hats, boots, jeans, suspenders holding up the jeans.  They looked like they have been in the desert a long time looking for gold.

This one booth had little baggies of dirt with gold in it.  One baggy was priced $1,900 dollars.  I could not believe the price.  He said “If you buy that one, you will get some gold in it.” 

Yeah but if I don’t, I won’t be out $1,900 dollars.      I wonder if he sold that bag of dirt.

On the way home, on the freeway, I saw a Lamborghini car.  It was black and sleek and low to the ground.  You don’t see those very often.  I looked up how much they cost.  They cost $385,000.  I could buy two houses for the price of that one car.  I wish I had his money.   I wish I could find a really big gold nugget.   I just wish alot.

Today’s picture: Wonder Woman

I checked out this book at the library.  Well actually it is a book on CD.  It was a big box.  The name of it is Brisingr.  It is about this dragon and a rider in some world.  I read the first book  Eragon, by Christopher Paolini,  years ago.  That is a really good book.  I bought the second book, Eldest, but I have not read it.  The third book is Brisingr.  I saw it at the library and thought I would like to listen to it.  I brought it home and saw it was 23 cd discs long.  I put in the first one and just did not want to sit and listen to it.  I think I like reading them myself, with my own voice in my head.  I did not listen to anymore of the CD’s.  I took them back.  I think I will read the second book and then read the 3rd one later.  

So yesterday I drew the picture of the dragon that was on the cover of the cd’s. 

Today I drew Wonder Woman. 

The other day I watched this game show.  One of the questions was Who used the lasso of truth?  These people were supposed to pick from 4 answers and place money on it to win.  The question was “What superhero has not had a movie made of them in the last 10 years.  The other 3 questions, the people knew.  The lasso of truth, they did not know.  I am sitting there yelling at the TV, “It was Wonder Woman.”  They put their money on that question, even though they didn’t know who it was.  The answer was right, it was Wonder Woman.

Then my son got this gamer magazine in the mail yesterday.  I opened it up to look at it and they had this big picture drawn of Wonder Woman.   This is the second time in two days that I heard or saw Wonder Woman.  So I went to my calendar and drew Wonder Woman, or my version of her in the day 13 box.
