Spring flowers

It is still too early to start my vegetable patch.It is too cold.After the warm wave it got cold again and quite windy.I can't wait for the warm weather to be back so I can spend more time outside.Today I went outside for a while looking for more signs of spring in our garden.The spring flowers started coming out really strong.The light was perfect and the pictures taken with my Kindle turned out pretty good.

At the Mall of America

Last weekend we had two fun days at the Mall of America in Bloomington near Minneapolis.I wish there were an educational part in it too but no.It was pure shop-and-relax trip.So there was a lot of shopping,eating out,swimming in the pool at the hotel and enjoying of the Nickelodeon theme park at the Mall.Although my daughter is out of this age it was nice to reminiscent about her favorite cartoon characters.Dora and Blue were some of her most favorite ones.Dora was such a good babysitter that when she was on my girl would be glued to the TV screen and I could actually have time for some house work.The curious thing about the figurines on top of the Lego store is that they have been made  of Lego blocks.The beautiful painting in the seventh picture was in Norstrom.

Stopping by just to say hallo.I wish you an exciting weekend as the weather outside is so beautiful.We are going on a trip.I hope I will have some sketching/drawing time while we are there.The illustration I am posting is an old one from two or three months ago.I saw the girl's face in a dream.I wish I had more dreams like that one.

Random post

Random pictures from my archive.My daughter was looking at the old pictures in the computer two days ago.She was amazed by these pictures taken in our garden.They were from August 2013.I guess I've forgotten all about them.I love the summer feeling in them when life is so easy.

Relaxing day

We had a relaxing Saturday yesterday.It was spent typically American way,eating out and shopping.Our newfound love is Texas Road House.The food is extremely delicious and yesterday I finally got to see the waitresses square dancing.
I don're want to get you bored with the shopping part but at the mall I had some spare time to do some sketching at the food court.

Hiking in the woods

It was last Monday.The weather was warm and sunny and the urge to go outside was irresistible.My daughter came up with this idea and that was the best thing we did together that day.She showed me new trails,I didn't know existed.We observed the waking up nature and took lots of pictures.We admired the view from the top of the hill and had a snack break there.Spring brings us such wonderful times!!!

An orange cat and bright colored oranges like little suns on a glumy,cold and rainy day.Some warmth for the soul and joy for the eyes.

Signs of spring

The warm sun,the first green leaves and flowers,birds songs in the air.The signs of spring are everywhere.
