Sorry I haven't been posting as regularly this week. I've been sick. Actually, I still am.
(You can't see me, but I'm looking pretty haggardly right now.)
But I promised you all over a week ago - wow, more like two, actually - anyway, I said I'd show you guys the product of Jake's time spent sketching in the snow, so, before any more time passes, I'm staying true to my word!
Apparently, during Jake's romp through the snowy woods around our house, he came to a place where the land bogged into a little marshy area, and there were birds skittering all around, over rocks and whatnot, and being an illustrator of children's stories, this was what his creative mind took from that - although he swears the little birds really did have earmuffs.
And this beaver was another character Jake claims to have run into during his recent walk through the snow. Bit of a cheeky fellow.
(There's a cute little woman at my church, a few years older than me, who's originally from Scotland and she uses phrases like "wee ones" and "bless ye" and "spot a coffee" and, I don't know, just very typical, colloquial Scottish type things, and I wish I could get away with a vocabulary like that, so every once in a while on the blog, I throw in a fun word that I have no true ancestral claim to, like "cheeky".)
He looks cheeky, right?
Friday's coming soon, y'all!
(Now there's a regionalism I can claim!)
