Day 5 - Spoon - Blogtoberfest

When I opened my bedroom blinds early this morning,
the sunlight washed over my bed.
It felt so nice and summery,
even though I'm not really looking forward
to the dreadful hot, humid heat of summer.



A pic of my two shadows.
Well, Cody practically follows me everywhere
just like a shadow. :)


Aaron and I went shopping for the morning with Michelle and Mikayla.
We had McDonalds hotcakes for breakfast. YUM!

The day flew by before I knew it and then, by mid-afternoon,
it was panic stations deciding on what to sketch for today.

I ended up settling for a spoon!

05 silver spoon

I made a delicious salmon vindaloo curry with rice for dinner tonight.
One of our all-time favourites.

What's your all-time favourite meal?



~ Love, light and peace ~

  1. I love it when the sun light just floods into a room! it is like it is saying "you can't keep me out of your life no matter where you try and hide". I hope the summer isn't to bad there for you but I promise I would trade it in a minute for the winter I feel coming at my back.
    I love the detail in your spoon's handle. Great job getting through day 5!!!
    Peace~

  2. The light and colour in your bedroom is so beautiful and your spoon sketch is so lovely. I'm just amazed at your ability to sketch just with pen! No pencil and eraser...Yikes. I guess this comes with practice and I'm thinking I may try it too but I'd need a LOT of practice!! (It would be a "for my eyes only" exercise for awhile.)

    My favourite meal used to be Lasagna until I went gluten free...looking for a gluten free Lasagna pasta now. I've really had to let go of a lot of foods that I loved when I became sensitive to both wheat and onion...they're in almost everything! I do love a good curry though!

    1. Thanks, Kate! You know, I'm still terrified when I touch the first pen mark to the page but then, I just get caught up in the pleasure of sketching. Funny that I feel more comfortable sketching with pen now than I do with pencil. I feel like I'm always second-guessing myself with pencil as I have the option to erase. With pen, you have to either accept the mistakes as adding character or incorporate them into the sketch....it feels more freeing and open to possibilities.

      I'm a pescetarian but I'm also thinking of cutting wheat and dairy out of my diet. What rotten luck to develop a sensitivity to onions....I love them! I can't imagine cooking without them but I guess I'd have to adjust too if I became sensitive to them.

    1. Thanks, Jennifer. :)

      I've never had key lime pie but a friend went on holiday to Florida once and she raved on about their Key Lime pies.

  6. The picture of your bed in the sunlight looks so inviting. It must be a great place to curl up with a book or for a nap. As for my favorite meal...I've discovered some delicious vegan "shrimp" that I really enjoy. Way back when I still ate meat it would have been baked ham with pineapple. I loved it!

    1. Yes, I read, sketch, and nap there....my bedroom is like my sanctuary....love it!

      OH, the 'vegan' shrimp sounds very interesting! Do you make them yourself or have you tried them at restaurants?

  7. Hi Serena!
    Love the sunshine exploding all that color in your bedroom!
    Sounds like such a nice time out with the kids.
    I am loving your ink drawings.
    Favorite meal? Kind of newly going vegan...have to think. Right now one of my favorite things is Zatarains black beans and rice. I've been making it about once a week. Just bought some cajun seasoning to try to figure out how I can make my own version instead of buying the box mixes. ;)
    Looking forward to your next post and sketch!! :)

    1. Thanks, Rita! I'm enjoying the challenge so far.

      Black beans and rice sounds yummy....I don't think I've ever tried black beans but I do love beans so I'm sure it would be a winner. I don't think we get that brand here but I'll look out for it.

      Hope you're having a lovely weekend ~ xo
