Project 365, Day #301


I hope you had a good day.  It was a cold rainy day here.  It just made me want a nice warm home cooked meal.  Well, once I get my mind set on something, forget it.  I decided I would make chili.  I went to the storage unit to find a frying pan, then to the grocery store and then back home.  I put charcoal in the Weber grill and lighted it up.  It took three rounds of cooking, to brown up the ground buffalo, turkey sausage and then my onions and peppers.  After they were done, I put them all in a crock pot with the rest of the ingredients.  The entire adventure took 2 1/2 hours to get it all done but it was so worth it.  The girls came home from school wondering what the smell was.  They couldn't wait for dinner.  It was so nice to have a hearty home cooked meal.  Of course I made enough for two days worth, so yeah, dinner for tomorrow is done. 

After dinner I decided to draw, but nothing was coming to me.  I sketched around on a piece of paper an idea I had, but it wasn't working out.  Another idea came to me and I thought I would just try it out on top of the other 'scrap' paper but I decided I liked it just like that.  Here is butterfly #201.

So it is a bit strange looking but I liked all the background butterflies.  I was trying to make a butterfly in a cursive, handwriting type style.  They just didn't seem to work out by themselves though.   Once I added the larger butterfly, I really liked the little ones as a background.  It is a messy, chaotic butterfly, but I like it.

That's all for me tonight.  Thanks for stopping by and have a great night!

Take care,
