Drawings and photo's of birds

These drawings I made in november, I wanted to show you.

I've been taking photo's the last couple of days, of the birds in our garden. I love birds, I feed them every winter so they have enough to eat, and I just simply love to watch them. The photo above is from a tomtit or great tit (I hope the translation is right) in dutch it is called a "koolmeesje", the photo of the bird with the red dot is from the great spotted woodpecker, in dutch "de grote bonte specht", which I never saw before in our garden, and now I've seen him since a few days. It is very cold here in the Netherlands for this time of year and in the whole of Europe I believe, but we are inside our house and make it cozy with a cup of hot chocolate and speculaas, a sort of dutch biscuits we eat in this time of year.

Yesterday my husband was working and I was home alone (sounds like the movie).
I cooked potatoes and when my husband was home I baked them and we ate them with pork tenderloin, and homemade applesauce in which i did some raisins (tasted good).
I also took a picture of the animals in the meadow next to us (I hope my translations are ok)
There are a camel, lama's and a bull. Interesting isn't it, when go out your kitchen door and look in the eyes of a camel or a lama, and they do have beautiful eyes and great long lashes!

This weekend I was reading in a dutch book about journaling. (Het schrijfhandboek van Saskia de Bruin) There was a poem and I liked it so much, this is it:

Today I am Me
and I am freer than free
There is no one alive
Who is me-er than Me
I am the BEST I can possibly be.

Dr. Suess

I hope you like it to.

I did some photoshopping of photo's I made this summer. I discovered that it is a very fun thing to do because you can make a picture that turned out not so good into a beautiful picture. I did this in the free downloadable photo edititing program of photoscape, ( it is very easy to use.

New look

I tried a few new looks on my blog and this one I liked the most. It's autumn and I want to change how things look with the seasons and the time of year. By the way, I like autumn so much, it's such a cosy time, inside my home, and outside in nature the colors are so beautiful, don't you think?

Drawings and Bobby

I did some drawings lately and took a picture of Bobby!

Hehe, finally I'm back at blogging again. Most of the time I don't know what to write about. Lately I've been drawing and painting. One of my paintings you can see here.

I've been enjoying the wheather the last few days. It has been so beautiful! 20 degrees Celsius.

We've been outside a lot. I like the birds singing in the morning at this time of year.

This is a picture of what the weather was like the last couple of days. It is really a strange winter this time. We didn't have so much snow since I can was a little child I think.

I finally finished this drawing. It's is done with coloured pencils. The photo is not that good, excuse me for that. This drawing is a real portrait, not a face that I invented (I hope that I translated this in good English). I hope you enjoy it.
