The quiet before the storm

Well, one week down! Had a quiet weekend, the roomies and I decided to have a star wars marathon and watch all 6 (I know, geeks!). It was a slow weekend school work wise, a little eerie as we know in a couple weeks the shit will hit the fan and we will once again be swamped, but we'll enjoy the quiet while it lasts. Had a beer night at our favorite bar on Friday. $2 for all the beer you can drink. My one room mate Sydney and I went and drank a lil more then $2 worth of beer, the other room mate picked us up at 11 when the beer ran out and said we were quite comical and the highlight of her night..... we had fun and the best part is its over at 11 so you still get a good nights sleep! Watched Stars Wars episode 4 that night....

On Saturday we watched number 5, then I headed out skating. There is a lovely little rink just outside our condo, I can see it from the porch. I had the entire rink to myself and the snow was falling, closed my eyes and pretended I was at home skating on our rink on Lac Ste. Anne, it was lovely. I have never been much of a skater due to leg problems, that's a story for another time, but its resolved enough now that I can enjoy skating, but I strained my lateral collateral ligament in my usually dependable right knee back in October that was later further aggravated by a well placed kick by Eurus so I only managed a half hour before it protested, but enjoyed it none the less. Ordered pizza and watched 6 and 1 Saturday night with some more friends who came over. Received this lovely photo of Eurus being silly and standing in his feeder, sure keeps Aunty Sherry on her toes with his antics!

Sunday, woke up and did the dreaded laundry and watch 2 and 3, which I always end up balling through the entire thing. blush. Later in the evening talked to the folks back home and did homework.

As I watched the movies decided to do some artwork, I did a ton of artwork back in high school and took a lot of classes but Its so hard to find time to indulge in it now. and of course my subject matter is always horses:) I drew my gelding Digger, who I miss tons while here in Saskatoon, I know to some it appears he gets pushed aside for Eurus, but Digger will always be my buddy. He got me through the toughest years of my life, as I was the nerd/outcast/ random cowgirl in the middle of the city that always got picked on and was the brunt of all the cruel mind games young girls like to play. Digger buddy, this is for you!

Angela, You have captured Digger right to the last hair. I miss your work as much as I miss you. I think digger misses you too although cookies seem to change his demeanor. Glad to hear the skating is working out for you.

I have not done any art in so long all I can do currently is work from photos, seem to have lost any talent I once had for pulling it out of my head, but then again all the room in my head is now reserved for vet school info so that skill must have gotten tossed when I had to make room for the vet info in my allready loaded head! lol, I am sure one day I will get it back.....

Stunning drawing! You've definitely got talent, girl.
It was difficult for me to draw or paint in vet school, but I found the time once in a while. If you're passionate about it, and it appears that you are based on your incredible talent, keep it up!
