A New Kind of Drawing

When drawing, never before had I known that I could be creative like this. Well, apparently I can. We were at the bowling alley on Tuesday for our regular Tuesday bowling and Jonathan was drawing a cool picture with twists and other interesting designs, so when we got home, I decided to try it and this is what I came up with.

Not too bad, right?
I thought "this is fun!" so I did another...

These pictures do take a lot of time because of the detail in them, which is great because it keeps me busy!
I've actually done two versions of this one...

Friday when we went shopping I got a sketchbook and some more Sharpie pens.
I've done some more in there.
I actually just did this one about a half hour ago.

This one is more simple...

I have done more but it would take awhile to post them all.

Apple Pie

I rarely make pies, but it was chilly today and it made me think of autumn, which makes me think of apple pie :)
Leave it to me to see seasons as different baked items, fortunately, that is not the only thing I see them as.
If I did it would be like this.
Spring- Cupcakes
Summer- Strawberry Shortcake
Autumn- Apple Pie
Winter- Sugar Cookies
We're going to skip ahead to the fun part, assembling the pie(s) I only took pictures of one before it was baked.

Do you see this? YUM!
We did one with a flakey crust and one with a crumble topping, the one with crumble topping was bubbling over in the oven (which made my funny mind think "My pie bubbleth over" lol) but when I tried to put a cookie sheet under it and settle the other one in such a way, I burnt my hand! OUCH!

Eventually the pies came out of the oven, and they were looking good!
Look for yourself:

You may have noticed a blob of crust on the front, before the pie went into the oven that was a pretty heart, unfortunately it didn't turn out. My mom said that it is a broken heart :)
This is the one with the crumble topping. Mmmm...

So, that is what I did today!

Fun, fun, fun!

This is me. This is me on a dirtbike!!! While in the mountains this past week, I was told that I really should learn to ride it, so... why not? It was fun!
Mikey is behind me, probably because I was going really slowly to start out. He didn't say anything about having to go slow while I learned, so I didn't say anything either.
I enjoyed it.
