Inktober prep

It’s not October yet, but she is coming up fast. I’m preparing for Inktober this year, by practicing more with inks of all types, and thinking about what the theme I’d like to carry through the month will be.

I know it’ll be especially difficult to deliver a drawing every day of October, so I want to be limber. October is going to be a very busy month at work, and it’s also the lead in to the twins’ birthday, and Bob’s birthday is in the middle of the month. So there will be plenty to occupy my mind, and having prep done now will pay off later.

I am tinkering with different themes, and here’s a sneak peak of a possibility.

Scenes from Allegany State Park

We spent 5 days (ish) at Allegany State Park in a cabin at the beginning of August; I didn’t take many pictures (most are of moss, as it turns out). Here’s what I do have.

11 years!

In the midst of a pandemic, today we celebrate our 11th wedding anniversary. We are celebrating by going camping at Allegany State Park (obviously with the kids). We don’t usually celebrate our anniversary with the kids, so this is a change from the norm (as is everything in 2020).

The kids surprised us this morning… By showing us the live bird one of the cats brought into the house. Memories!

There’s no one I’d rather share this absolute three Ring circus with.
