#DoodlewashDinner May 10

Today is supposed to be Liver and Onions Day.  But because we have been so well behaved around here lately we have opted for pizza.  Long live pizza and beer night!  My home made pizza is almost as infamous as my chocolate chip cookies.  Truly as evil and jumps right off the plate and into your mouth just as easily!!

Happy Mothers Day and Draw A Bird Day

Happy Mothers Day to all!  As it so happens it is the 8th day of the month which means Draw A Bird Day as well.  My present to you on Mothers Day and Draw A Bird Day is my new painting, “Coming In For A Landing”.  The chickadees are at the feeder enjoying their seed or trying to.  Flowers, blossoms and spring greenery abound.   My hope is you all enjoy this special day.  Hugs, Susan

#DoodlewashDinner May 6th

Today I give you my infamous homemade chocolate chip cookies!  Infamous because they are notoriously good.  They jump right off the plate and get into your mouth.  Truly evil.  Over the years I have made thousands of these beauties.  A true family favourite.  Well look at that, there I go eating my props, again!!  Told you they were good.

#DoodlewashDinner May 5th

Here we are again, sitting down to dinner at our house.  In my quest to introduce more fish into our diet let me introduce you to ground salmon wrapped with a fillet of sole. Garnished with fresh dill and parsley from our herb pot.   I have also made you some rice pilaf and broccoli.  Please help yourself to the salad.  Cheers!  Oh darn I have forgotten the fresh lemon wedges.  Pardon me while I go get them!

#DoodlewashDinner May 4

The lowly peanut butter and jelly sandwich is my featured dinner today.  Ever since I can remember a peanut butter and jelly or honey sandwich along with a glass of milk out of my blue glass has been a staple for me.  With all the peanut allergies out there these days I am afraid I would have starved if it was that way when I was a child!  I simply would not eat anything else.  My parents would treat the family to a restaurant meal and I would ask for a peanut butter sandwich.  It is a family joke.  Honest.  Thankfully I have come a long way since those days but I will still have myself a lovely gooey peanut butter sandwich when nothing else will do.  Oh and the gooey-er the better.  And you don’t ever cut it, one must rip into it and savour.  Yum.

For the love of Apples!  Whether they are a delicious Granny Smith or a scrumptious Royal Gala they are a part of my everyday lunch time meal.  As you can tell in this doodlewash I couldn’t wait to eat one of the apples!  So much for my props!

Thank you to Charlie O’Shields  doodlewash.wordpress.com for gathering the clan and getting this months party organized!!


National Thank Charlie Day for #doodlewashaday


April  30th Could be several things but I am making it, National Thank Charlie Day for letting us take part in his April long #doodlewashaday.  Visit Charlie O’Shields  at doodlewash.wordpress.com  Thank you Charlie!!

I have attached some of my doodlewashes for the month, a collage if you will.  All of my #doodlewashaday were done in my Opus Essentials Sketchbook which really didn’t take too kindly to my slopping water about.  I also used Neocolor Caran D’Ache and Gallery Mungyo Watercolor Crayons, along with Holdbein Artists Water Colors, Pigma Micron Archival Ink along with my Pilot Drawing Pens.  Neither of which like the watercolor crayons but I persisted.  I had a blast and thoroughly enjoyed myself.  I hope you enjoyed the ride.  Cheers Susan Feniak



National Arbour Day #doodlewashaday

April 29 or the last Friday of April is National Arbour Day.  Plant a tree!  Someday it could become big enough to hang a tire swing from.  Oh the hours of fun that would be.  Cheers, Susan

National Poem In Your Pocket Day #doodlewashaday

April 21st is not always National Poem In Your Pocket Day.  Apparently the date varies from year to year.  My Poem as you can plainly see is tucked in my pocket ready to read.

“I wrote a poem

short and sweet.

T’was all about

my dirty feet.”

Bare foot and fancy free.  My feet really do look rather dirty.  I am full of silliness today.  Hope you have a fun filled day too.

I am going to have to take a couple of days off from #doodlewashaday but hopefully I will be back in time for #SelfieArt or before hand.  Cheers!

National Animal Cracker Day #doodlewashaday

April 18th is National Animal Cracker Day.  I know that isn’t animal crackers in the jar!  At this Grandma’s house the Grandkidlets prefer Goldfish Crackers.  So that is what I doodlewashed.  I keep the goldfish in an old plastic peanut butter container on a shelf in the pantry exactly where it should be kept full and at the ready.  Its obvious by the look of the jar that I need to go shopping!  At the moment its the multi cheese version in the jar.  To keep things a bit on the healthier side they are often doled out with raisins, dried cranberries or dried blueberries.  But sometimes chocolate chips make it into the mix and that brings on big smiles!
