Early last week I signed up for a Flickr group that’s doing a comic a day throughout May. I’ve been looking for more ways to get myself drawing regularly, so this seemed like a good fit. It’s been fun trying to think of something each day. I start sketching during lunch, and finish it up when I’m done with work for the day, so I have time to come up with an idea and plot it out in my head.
Yesterday we went on our first hiking trip of the year. Just a short jaunt through Forest Park, but Lucas and I have agreed this will be A Trend and we’ll start hiking regularly again. We saw a heron right at the start, hanging out in Balch Creek. Tons of people were walking by, but it seemed pretty unfazed by the activity. I tried to get a picture—unfortunately the iPhone doesn’t have a zoom lens.
I also bought my first Oregon strawberries of the year, at the farmers market. I would declare that this plus the hiking is evidence that summer is on the way, but today it’s gray and drizzling and I think the weekend weather may just have been a taunt. Sigh.
