Waiting for Warm

Like everyone else
I'm waiting for Warm.

The beginning of the week it was almost 70 degrees.
The pupster and i walked some looong trails.
(yep. forgot to carry a camera . . . sigh)
Two days later the roads are covered in ice
and we wait for our next outing.

Listening to a talk
Grabbed some colored pencils
and got carried away.
my brain started squakin'
"put the pencils down!"

Walkin' My Pupster - Babler

This way



We drove past all the buildings to a State Park.  People call it Babler Park.  It's named after Dr. Edmund A, Babler.  The place is large and we'll enjoy visiting over & over again.
That way



There are super Steep Hills and some challenging trails.

There's Camping, and Parks and . . Learning Centers . . the visitor center was closed for the season  . . . peeking inside it looks like there's a lot to discover.

Let's Just Go!

I haven't found a picture of Dr. Babler.  People love and respect him. His obituary tells a mighty story of service.  Here's the link.
 

We'll visit several times
and report back.


It's always good to walk with your "Bestie."

Ink Report

So many of us . . all around the world . . . spending a month drawing in ink
I imagined hearing a mega-voice calling out "Pens Down!"
Like school testing days.
I learned a lot
may learn about new tools and methods
to try again next year.
Every once in a while I'd go back to a drawing and color it in . . . 
(shhh, don't tell)
 
 Today I picked up a pencil (yay!)
But, i also used a Pitt Artist Pen for the first time (phooey)
perhaps I've gone mad
(giggle)

Okay, I'm off to find "inky" music
for
Tom's Foto Tunes

Jimmy Durante & Harry James
'Inka Dinka Doo'

The year of "suddenly."

Now it is "Suddenly" chilly
and will rain heavily for a day or so

It's okay.
My pup and i are happy walking trails
wet or dry

Here's a peek from a Fall Garden Visit
Surely this "Suddenly" 
will cause a new season to display

Last visit I found myself interested in pathways
as you can imagine
in a large, world class botanical garden
there are plenty of pathways
i suppose life is a little like that
but - this thought is too big for me today
 I did stop in a new exhibit.
the people were nice
but
surprised to see me
i was glad to get back outside
(perhaps a story for another day - okay, maybe not 😉)
Thank you for taking time to visit today

see you soon.

love & love.
