Thanksgiving Not-A-Turkey Bird!

I’m almost entirely caught up with NanoMangO, but posting them will have to wait until we get back home to Texas and my scanner. Currently, Ash and I (along with the two dogs and two of our rats who need medication) are in Tennessee spending the Thanskgiving holiday with Ash’s mom’s side of the family. It’s been a really nice time, I surprised her grandparents (her Gramma literally screamed when she saw me she was so excited), and I got some design work done while I was here.

Anyway, I was finishing up some of the things that I had left in my WIP folder and I thought I’d share this little bird that I had created as a mock-up for a client. She ended up going with a different version I drafted, but I still like it so I figured why not post it.

Bird

I failed (sort of) at NaBloPoMo, but I’ll make up for it when I go and back-date my comics to the right dates. It’ll look like I won… Hey, that works right? In any case, enjoy the bird. I’ll be back in Texas on Sunday.

Vacation Update.

Things have slowed down enough that I can actually write an entry and not have to publish it later. Yesterday we went to three different museums, jumped on huge boulders along Lake Michigan, and had some yummy chinese food. We saw dinosaurs, civil war paintings, and some of the mangiest stuffed animals I have ever seen. All in all, it was a pretty great day.

Today is our last day here and we spent it mostly putting up the Christmas tree, doing laundry, and relaxing. I also got some new hand-me-down clothes from my younger sister (yes, hand-me-downs from my younger sister) and we had a huge breakfast.

I would love to put up pictures of our Christmas Tree because I love it, but I don’t think that’s going to happen since this dial-up at my parents’ house is unbelievably the slowest possible in existence. I don’t know how they can deal with it. I guess the trick is to have only one window open at a time and to make sure it is fully loaded before you even attempt to move to another page. It’s frustrating.

But I’m going to go hunt down Ash – I think she’s around here somewhere. Unless my youngest sister got to her… oh dear.

Stuffed Full.

Well we reached home okay (got there around 1:30 in the morning) and got the cats and Spunky set up for the night before finally passing out in bed. Had tons of family come over Thanksgiving Day and ate tons of food – Ash’s deviled eggs were an absolute hit and everyone enjoyed them (in fact, some of my relatives even admitted to liking them more than my mom’s “World Famous” Deviled Eggs – there were none left of Ash’s at the end of the day, and a plate-full of my mom’s remained uneated).

Today, we are off to the museums in Kenosha (art, dinosaurs, and civil war history, oh my!) and I am most likely there right now since I’m typing this in advance to put up in the morning. I’m so sneaky.

(Anyway, I’m exhausted, the day was long, and the dogs are now barking. Night all and I hope you had a great Thanksgiving! Oh, and Good morning!)

Turkey Day!

So I’m writing this, but yet again, I’m not! How? Because since I’ll be gone for a few days, I’m writing this in advance so it shows up that I have posted every day for November. Cheating? I don’t think so. I think of it as innovative and resourceful.

Anyway. Happy Thanksgiving/Turkey Day/Holidays!
