For some reason, I did a bit more sketching yesterday than usual. The above drawing is from a shrub I found in Georgetown, TX where our second eldest son works. I have no idea what it is, but the bright green branches were covered with these strange pods. I didn't have time to draw it on the spot so I took a photo to draw from later.
During the morning's service, I drew a friend's briefcase as I listened.
Then, because it was the last Sunday of the month, we got together in the evening for "snack & yack" and a movie. Ms. B.J. again created some clever snacks for the kids: palm trees made of kiwi fruit, a half-banana, and orange slices, arranged on small plates.
UPDATE: Thanks to John Earl Gray on Facebook, the unknown shrub in the first sketch has been identified as mountain laurel. I have seen them in full bloom in Austin but had never seen them in the pre-flower stage before.
