They were wearing earphones and knee pads while using metal detectors.
One of them stopped, knelt down and started digging with a spade.
I wonder what he found...

I saw this touching moment the other day:The construction working appeared to be comforting the big digger, it was sweet. Like Danny and the dinosaur.

From time to time, I long for the comfort of a picture slapped together on MS Paint. Those lo-fi looks warm my hart(sic). The jagged lines and construction paper colors pull me backwards into nostalgia.
Indeed. This charm is partially why I chose the medium in the first place- that and the fact that I had no access to fancy schmancy digital art tools.

Today is a very blah, foggy, Seattle 1990-something kind of day, so I thought I would share this drawing I meant to post over 2 years ago:
On a very similar kind of morning, this guy was belting out the Pearl Jam at the bus stop!
And no, he is not homeless or wearing shoulder pads, that is just artistic flair. He WAS wearing flannel though.

Love it! Love it! Love it!
Pros: Pockets, Long straps, Design, Waterproof, Style, Work and play, Roomy
Cons: Need good bus pass pocket
Best Uses: play, Diaper Bag, Work, Crafts
I use this bag for work and play, it holds a notebook, lunch, knitting and a small purse plus my random little things a person "needs" to get by, oh, and my coffee! I love the long strap and handles. It has already been in a couple snowstorms and the waterproof works like a charm. Dry goods when I got home looking like a snowman. I was able to fit my laptop on on top of the above things, but it was pretty tight!

Are the ninjas disbanded, or disguised?
I hope you did not need any martial arts experts in a hurry along HWY. 55!

That green thing on the bike is a hockey stick. Awesome.
I will note that he DID have both front and rear lights turned on. Nice. Safety first....erm...visibility first!
Some call Minneapolis the #2 biking city in the nation. I have no clue who can decide these things, but there are plenty of bike commuters even in the bitter cold and snow. I am not sure how many of them also play hockey.

Then you open it up and:
That beaver is sure to fall to the grips of evolution now. Pretty sure he cannot swing an ax.

This morning I am off to a crafternoon brunch hosted by TrinKnitty. I am really looking forward to it.
For the event I decided to make some bread from this bread baking book I really enjoy to read and use when I can. I made the Light Whole Wheat Loaf.
Let's look at the results together:
There is the baking book on the right and friend Dave's new book on the left.
Both books are by local authors and published by St. Martin's Press.
(Which has moved to Calhoun Village, by the way!)
I think they will taste better than they look and baking them was as fun(ny) as they look!
