Instagram This Week

I’ve been wanting to redo my Instagram username. So I finally settled on naming after our boat (who’s logo is this swan). So it’s now @svneverforever ... I think I like that better?

January just sucked productivity-wise so I am going to challenge myself to do a new piece everyday (except weekends? He says hedging his bets) in February. I did a lot of sketching so if I’m lucky a lot will be “new” new. Here’s number one. #stainedglass #cats #27moredaystogo

This little gem was in the brim of an old black fedora I inherited from my elder brother. There were a few other tickets as well as a Baker Oilfield sticker. I miss wearing hats…

Sourdough done two ways. Let’s see if either turned out!

Instagram This Week (with commentary)

I am going to use the Auto-instagram segment as part of my posting efforts. But I will add commentary…lucky you! Only one pic this week… Must of been a slow one.

 

Happy new Shabu Shabu everyone! Or, as my autocorrect likes to say, Happy Shaun Shaun!
Happy new Shabu Shabu everyone! Or, as my autocorrect likes to say, Happy Shaun Shaun!

 

In recent years we have been doing a Shabu Shabu for New Year’s dinner. This year we were thinking of skipping due to general malaise but then realized it was on Sunday evening so we were going to gather to eat anyway so…  I did a Kamikaze for cocktail (for those of you who don’t know we try to do weekly cocktails and document them on The BoozePhiles site).Several time during the planning stages my phone autocorrected Shabu to Shaun so there was a running joke about who this Shaun was and why he was invited.
