Tonight is the beginning of my blog. There isn’t much to say, I guess there is. I have been struggling with my third pencil portrait drawing. I’ve invested at least nine hours into it. The more I look at it, the more I find to tweak. It is coming along good, I think. I’m probably the worst critic, but then again, there won’t be a challenge if it is not looked at with my tough brown eyes.

Gym was great, five miles is not bad, plus leg work, the day has been rainy, you make your day work regarless what the elements are.

 In Minnesota, every one really pays attention to the weather every day, changes of +/- 20 degrees from 6am to 6pm are very common. I’m glad the World Cup is going on, it soothes the rain out.
