Day Two - Blogtoberfest & a sketch

As I sit here typing, there is quite a noisy, cold wind blowing outside.
It makes me grateful to be indoors.

Brad, Aaron, and I went to Garden City by bus today.
On the walk to the bus stop, we passed this group of ibis near the creek.
I wonder if they're seasonal in this area because I haven't seen any
around here for a while now.

I also spotted these morning glories, 
with their pretty splash of purple and pink, 
among the long grasses nearby.

The weather forecast had predicted possible rain today but, thankfully, it stayed away. 
I didn't fancy the idea of getting wet.

On our walk home, I found a feather which may have belonged to one of the ibis
we'd seen earlier in the day.

Naturally, I took it home to sketch for Day 2 of the 75 day sketch project.

I'll close off now as my daughter, Michelle, is due to drop my Granddaughter off 
at any tick of the clock.  Michelle and Alex will be going out to dinner
in celebration of their second wedding anniversary so I get to baby-sit.

I hope your week is off to a good start.

~ Love, light and peace ~
