Windy Day

Today was a gorgeous day. Also, a much more productive day, this being my last known free day for awhile. Not that I won't have them, (I have to have them every 10 days I think), but I won't know which day they'll be too far in advance. And quite often, we'll have fabulous weather all the days I work, but the day off will have horrid weather.

So I definitely went out to take advantage of the day. Except Hermann Park (my intended destination) was a zoo. It was insanity. I wonder if there was something special going on - there were extra stop signs and police cars watching traffic. Whatever it was, I couldn't wait to turn around and get out of there. Instead, I decided to head my neighboring park, Memorial Park and explored the picnic areas.

I found a quiet stone bench and decided there wasn't much to photograph, so maybe I'd sketch and/or watercolor a bit. Except inspiration ran a bit dry. I finally sketched something and no, you don't get to see it. I'm terrible at drawing and sketching. But I took some photos of the paints and water, for the heck of it.

The moderate winds which were lovely, also blew in some clouds. Not wanting to get rained on, I packed up and did a grocery store run.

Now, I'm just relaxing and hoping to hang out with a friend, schedule depending. And I have to go to bed at a reasonable hour... for tomorrow, work begins!

And thanks to USITT, it'll be reunion week as well!
