March 4, 2009 (EDM # 213)

First, let me say that both Alexander and I are feeling much better. Alexander is going to take a little longer to recuperate, than I, but with lots of rest he will be up and around in no time at all.

I spent most of Tuesday and today catching up on work so there has not been much time to draw.

EDM # 213
Draw a Microwave

Our microwave oven is white and sits in a white kitchen. You see a partial collection of roosters and chickens sitting on top of my microwave. I collect roosters (and chickens) and have them all around my kitchen. That is a microwaveable kettle, also on top of the microwave, that whistles when the water is boiled. I use it to make pots of tea so I keep it out all the time.

I belong to the FlyLady group. On the door you see my FlyLady sticker. FlyLady is a group to help you get control of your home and life 15 minutes at a time. It has helped me a lot. I find her methods work well for highly creative, extremely easily side-tracked people, like me.


  1. It's fun to let loose and do some simple sketching once in a while... good for the soul! I also like the simplicity of these kind of sketches. - Greg

  2. Nice sketch. Can't help but wonder if your Portuguese. It seems like every portuguese house has a collection of roosters for some reason.

  3. Yes, I am Portuguese. I was born on the island of Sao Jorge in the Azores but have lived most of my life in Canada.

  4. I am so glad you and Alexander are both OK :)
    Love your microwave with it's collection of roosters- a lot more interesting than the bread basket on top of mine LOL

  5. It's Jennifer from the CP group. I like the shickens on your nuker.
