Here’s my stash!:
Two tubes of paint to replenish my oil paint supply, 3 soft lead pencils, one square sketchbook and a smaller 8 x 5 sketchbook and 6 canvases! Got everything on my list. Whee!
For my first drawings in my square sketchbook, I drew Mum and Dad’s cat, sleeping in front of the fireplace:
Had a nice dinner and funny conversations (from everything to Kay Kyser to the Clash) at Mum and Dad’s. Decided we’ll have Thanksgiving over there and Mum and I planned our grocery lists. Dad also gave us some tomato plant seedlings, so before summer hits we’re going to make raised beds with rabbit proof fencing in a corner of our yard.
Later, Cam and I swung round Adrian’s and had good conversation with him and a couple of his roommates. Had organic dark chocolate and Gloria Jean’s choc. coffee..Can you say yum?! Despite the caffeine late at night, I managed to get to sleep rather quickly.
Today Daniel called up and we invited him to the Thanksgiving dinner, forgetting that he’s vegetarian. But he accepted since there’ll be lots of veggies and stuffing, which we’ll make with vegetable broth. Going to invite Adrian as well. Ebony will be there that night too, so it should be lots of fun!
Tonight I’ll be preparing the filling for the pumpkin pie, since here in Melbourne there is no such thing as canned pumpkin! It really isn’t as much work as you might think. The fact that we have a food processor helps. Basically it’s three steps: chop, steam and blend. And I think the end result tastes amazing. Can’t wait!
After all the shopping I did at the art store I managed to leave with enough money for a dinner of fish and chips! So that’s another thing to look forward to tonight. Another day of good things in this Thanksgiving week.
