To Grandparents' House We Go

Alternatively titled "The Illustrated Hen," or just "What I Did On Saturday."

A chunk of Saturday was spent with my parents and grandparents at said Grandparents' house. They've got a huge outside space, and fairly recently acquired chickens, ducks, and goats (oh my). The goats never really warmed up to me, but it was a nice visit anyway, and the birds were cool with the camera. Who needs goats? I'm lying, I really wanted the goats to like me. Anyway, we spent the hours outside, as we always do during these visits. Their outdoor space is seemingly endless, and they're always adding new things. They've always done that though, and I think it's where my own plant love stems from. 

After spending the afternoon visiting, I tagged along with my parents while they ran a few errands. I ended up distracted by Fall decorations that were honestly out way too early, but I can't help it. I'm in full-stop *pretend Summer isn't happening* mode, and I need all the pumpkins in my life. I also thought up (and later began) a new illustration project that I'll be doing over the next few months. I wanted something to tide me over after DEDIM is finished until it's time for Inktober, so there isn't really an exact time limit on it. I'll explain more when I've got enough material for the first update, but it's something I'm pretty excited about.

Sunday was spent nursing menstrual cramps and catching up on blog work. I felt very productive, so I'd say this weekend was a success. I hope yours was as well.
