Zentangle Challenge #133 “Tipple” & Day Out With My Girl

I have had a happy few days sitting around with dear daughter.  As most of her friends have already left for College, and adding to that her wisdom teeth extraction, she has been a homebody the last few days.  So, as I sat around with her, I got the idea to do a Zentangle Challenge with the Diva.  The theme is “Tipple” which are the little round tangles.  I started with a Hearts and Loops quilting design, and worked around that:

And today, since most of her pain subsided, and her chipmunk cheeks have receded, we ventured out.  I had her take a snap of the truck loaded with oranges on the freeway.  I just love the fact that our town has an orange growing history, and that we live in a small grove.  We stopped by Hobby Lobby before hitting Victoria Gardens.  I get a bit overwhelmed at Hobby Lobby sometimes, they just have so much stuff! We managed to get out of there with just a few items.  First stop at the mall was See’s Chocolate, to fortify ourselves for the shopping ahead.  After hitting most of DH’s favorite shops, we sat down and had some frozen yoghurt.  On the way home, we picked up her new glasses.  It was a hot but wonderful day.  I am cherishing every moment with her before she heads off to College…

  1. That’s lovely! And it looks like you had a nice day with your girl too 🙂 bonus!

  2. How nice to spend some time with the DD. I sure miss mine.

  3. Treasure every moment. Sounds like a fun day. I can still see the swelling…..ouch. You have talent. If I would doodle it wouldn’t look like that, hah. Have a good week-end. Love the picture of the oranges…..wow, that’s a lot of OJ.

  4. Me again. I just saw Deb’s post and we are partners for the spoolie swap. I am supposed to ask you if you want yours to be Halloween or Fall. Seriously either for me. Also supposed to ask what kind of goodie or surprise. Anything, I am not picky and I love everything. Maybe something to do with owls…..I love the cute ones……paper, fabric, ribbon.
    Now your turn.
    Also I just changed my email to clowninabug@gmail.com. I was having so many issues with my other one changing the sp. when someone would reply.
    I think I should have your address but could you send it to me again.
    Here is mine……Debby Messner
    158 Spruce Drive, Granville, Ohio 43023.
    This will be fun……send me your info as I am ready to get busy, hah.
