Life is Good!

It's hard to know what problems my people will encounter in any given week. This week was full of them. Take the biker and the redhead, who could not believe the other was truly interested in them:
 
 


Or this husband, who couldn't get his wife to sit still and listen to him.



Or the gal on her laptop, who had already written one Dear John letter a week ago ...


... The  younger sister, who just wanted a little reassurance, but big sister wasn't going to help with that!


... or those infernal long lines at Starbucks! Where waiting is the name of the game!


But this one really took the prize! The two lovers were fine, but then unseen here was this other guy who came in with flowers for a different women, who wouldn't look up from her phone to receive them. From my vantage point it looked like "apology flowers" for what I can only guess at, and she was not in the mood to accept his apology! He finally left. Don't know what happened to the flowers.


On a lighter and more positive note this daughter was appreciative of her mom's help with her homework.


Some days were rather uneventful, just he usual waiting in line and chatting.


We went to another town and a café near the court house, where lawyers and jury members and such hang out. I found this couple of interest.


And I always start and end my week on Thursdays at Barnes & Noble Café where regulars and newbies hang out doing their thing, the red table is the giveaway.


And then there is my evening at home art done in my recliner off my iPhone on the Sktchy  App.
A fun way to draw faces. I look for expressions and emotions when I can.




 
I love drawing all of these people. As you can see the most recent is #181. I've almost filled two art journals with Sktchy folks. Bought the next one today to be ready to continue.
 
I hope you are having a Creative week and I wish you another coming up. My life is full of drawing, digging in dirt/starting my spring/summer garden, and something I haven't done in a very long time, years, sewing.
 
Thanks for coming by and know that your comments keep me drawing!
