Blossoming branches, brought home after helping out with an extensive garden cleanup Saturday. Branches, a vase, what more does one need.

Woodturning: it's when you take a piece of wood and you turn it

...is what I heard J. say jokingly to a friend. Since we picked up the lathe (Dutch: draaibank) to put it in his workshop, woodturning is again in the spotlights here. I was wondering what kind of things can be made with woodturning, and how to draw wood.

I give up

Not my studies. Come on, it's just ten more weeks plus graduating.
Not my exercising regime. It's just paused, that's all.
Not keeping up with doing the dishes. Well, some days I do. Sssssht, don't tell anyone.
Not my music. Assuming I will manage to find back my instruments underneath the blanket of dust.
Not my attempts to create a beautiful, green garden. I will never give up on that. Even though winter is coming, and the leaves have fallen from the trees already. Faster than I can process them.
Not on trying to draw every day. Even though I keep failing miserably there. Where did the last counting stop? Oh yeah. At day one.
Guess I'll just give up on counting ;).

Day ehmm, let's start with 1 again

Back to school! My -hopefully last- year of university has started today, our new home has been settled in (sort of) and life is structured again, including alarm clocks and breakfast on the train. Ánd including having time for drawing during travelling back home, huzzah! Today's drawing is only slightly inspired by todays coffee-requiring lectures beginning before nine and ending around five, in a new building where the coffee machines had not yet been installed. Muhaha, I had the foresight to bring my thermos jug along.

Day 24 - recipes ring binder

To gain control over my ever expanding, scattered-everywhere recipe collection, I finally bought an A5 ring binder to '...bring them all and in the darkness bind them'. Ahem. The black cover was not of my choice, but apparently A5 binders are quite rare so this was the only one I could find. As it looked boring and I kept confusing the front and back cover, a paper cover was swiftly made and doodled upon. Yay, problem solved.
