‘The first time I see a jogger smiling, I’ll consider it.’ Joan Rivers.

31 Jan

Stories from my Sketchbook . . .

I have been thinking lately that I should be doing a tad more more exercise . . .

It’s not that I am entirely sedentary.  I walk the dogs every day (except when it is over 35 degrees(C) outside because . . .  well that’s just silly . . . )

I ride my exercise bike every day (although, I admit, some days I ride further than others . . . )

I even do (a tiny bit) of weight training every day.  (Sometimes these sessions do get interrupted though, because any time I lie on my living room floor (regardless of whether I am hoisting a barbell or not) it seems to be an open invitation for the girls to play silly-buggers and lick my eyes, or tickle my feet or nip my ears, or, in Molly’s case, sit on my tummy and supervise from above.  Last week Maudie even came over and laid her ball, ever so gently, onto my right eye socket . . . )

Anyway,  I have been feeling that I possibly could . . . should. . . . maybe . . . kick it up a notch?

In the spirit of that thought, I decided that sketching my trainers might be a step (see what I did there?) in the right direction . . .

What do you think?

    I do not even understand how I ended up here, but I
    believed this post was once good. I don’t understand who
    you’re but definitely you are going to a well-known blogger should you are not already.

    Good sketch, good idea.
    Jogging? Maybe ……… but not at this time of year.
    (When I was a runner I used to smile a lot – usually just after stopping 🙂 )

    I’m thinking how amazing that you could leave socks draped over your trainers! Fergus would make off with those before you could blink an eye. As always, excellent sketch!

      The socks were not a problem. However, if they had been food-flavoured . . .

    “Last week Maudie even came over and laid her ball, ever so gently, onto my right eye socket . . .” That honestly made me laugh at loud. Love the Joan Rivers quote!

      My Maudie does not have a subtle bone in her body – and I wouldn’t have it any other way! And I happen to very much agree with Joan River on this one. 🙂
