Cee’s Friday Funny Finds – June 26, 2020

…thanks to Cee for hosting Friday Funny Finds

My 4 1/2 year old granddaughter is writing a book about pirates. When I asked her who the main characters were she told me Captain Raw Salmon and Captain Wasabi. Have you guessed that she loves sushi.

I told her I would try to come up with some sketches of these two characters. Here is my first attempt.

When I inquired further about the story line I was told it included Purple Palm trees, jungles, swimming snakes, a jaguar and a treasure chest. Oh I almost forgot….biting crabs.

When she saw the drawings I asked her if there was anything else I should add. She told me to send them to her and she would add more detail. Not sure if that is a compliment or a not. I love four year olds.

Tea Biscuits and Doodles

….trying to keep busy and watch less TV

My husband finally got bored watching TV and felt well enough to play in the kitchen. For some reason he’s had a craving for tea biscuits so he started to research for a recipe where we had all the ingredients. I haven’t made biscuits in a long time but I do remember that they were pretty basic with simple ingredients. It’s amazing how many variations of tea biscuits there are out there. Some called for evaporated milk and lemon soda pop and of course there are all kinds of add ons like raisin and cranberries.

We finally decided on a classic recipe. My husband also made his own clotted cream and we had a wonderful afternoon tea break with hot biscuits and cream. The only thing missing were the fresh berries to go on top.11-B17042-A48-F-4028-ABAF-7-E15-D9-BEE793

Later in the evening I went on the internet and found a new site hosted by Mo Willems, the children’s book author and illustrator. It is very much geared to children but I enjoyed his show ‘Lunch Doodles with Mo Willems”. Check it out if you like to doodle and/or if you have children who like his books. He demonstrates how to draw Pigeon, Piggy and Elephant.

Wacky Bird Wednesday

….’it’s a hummingbird’

According to Winnie this is a hummingbird. It does have a long beak, I’ll give her that. We finally heard back on her reaction to this week’s Monster Monday. She declared that monsters visited her room and this one’s name was Fred.

Carrot Horns

….that was my interpretation and not Winnie’s

Monster Monday is back. It looks like that sweet Sunday Rabbit  was nibbling on this monster’s horns.0f6f6369-4f5b-49d3-a07e-ff9f7352f0fe

Winnie hasn’t seen today’s drawing. I’ll come back tomorrow with her comment if she makes one.

Another ‘Scary’ Monster

….oh no, are they too scary again?

Monday’s Monster Monday generated this response from our granddaughter, “That’s a scary monster.” A few weeks ago she didn’t want to look at the Monday drawings because she knew they were monsters and monsters are scary. We’ll see how she responds to next week’s drawing.
