Summer treats

Strawberry smoothy.Actually you can make it all year round but it is so refreshing in the summer and can be a light snack for the kids.All you need is some plain yogurt,sugar,hand mixer and of course strawberries.I am not the queen of measurements so I eyeball everything  and adjust it by taste.

Fun Monday

Can it get any better?Summer,sunshine,endless fun with friends in the cool water of the creek.Played with a friendly dog named Elvis,had a snack at the tiny beach and sent a message in a bottle.Will anybody find this bottle and read the message?They were wondering about that when tossing the bottle in the water.We also saw some crayfish.It is amazing how they look like miniature lobsters.Actually they are miniature lobsters.The kid had a lot of fun that day.And her mama did too.Taking pictures, sketching and cooling off in the creek.That was our last Monday.I wish we had more Mondays like that.

Sketches and doodles #152,153 and 154

Three more doodles and sketches from my last year not very successful challenge.All of them were done during my morning break at work.The first one is pure imagination,the second one was inspired by the girl cleaning around the cafeteria during my break and the third one is obvious-a small bag of M&Ms.
