    1. I’m glad to entertain ๐Ÿ™‚ I wanted to get my stick figures perfectly symmetrical and straight this time, so I used the insert shape function in Word. It was quite a bother though, so no more drawing in a text document!

          2. Awe, you’re too good! I have no plans of ever abandoning the blog, so it’s likely that I’ll stick around and enforce myself on people for a while ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. As an aging woman with an aging bladder, I can identify with the last photo. And I missed the cat’s thought bubbles this time around.

    1. Haha ๐Ÿ˜€ Drawing a cat in MS Word was beyond my skills, so no cat this time. The last time the cat also took offence at me putting words in her mouth, so…

    1. Thank you! I wouldn’t be surprised if my pseudo-artistic attempts hurt the eyes of someone who is actually creative ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

  4. Yoga is beginning to sound interesting. Great drawings, especially considering you made them in Word!

    Oreo instead of supper?! … nah, that’s terrible ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. How is Oreo for supper terrible? It would be nice, if I enjoyed that. But I guess I felt too guilty for eating that to enjoy.

      Drawing in Word was an interesting experiment, in which I found out that Word indeed was not intended for drawing ๐Ÿ˜‰

      1. Ohh … I like Oreo, especially the white stuff in the centre of them — just not in the time I normally have supper ๐Ÿ™‚

        There used to be another programme, that came with Windows … very basic … Paint, it was called. There, you could actually do more than expected.

        1. I’ve discovered Paint! I remember I used this (or maybe a variant of this) with my first computer running Windows 95. I think I’ll try playing around in Paint the next time ๐Ÿ™‚

          1. I’ve seen amazing stuff people have done in Paint. So called ‘pixel drawings’ …

          2. Yes, I know what you mean and it’s truly amazing! I don’t delude myself that I’d create anything anywhere near, but it could be nice to have a little fun with that.
