spot the spurtle

kitchencabinet blog

Yeah, it’s called spot the spurtle.  What?  You think that’s lame?  Wanna make something of it?  Oh, sorry.  I’m reading Black Swan Green right now, and there’s a lot of scrapping of the school boy variety going on.  This has me both fearing for Doodle’s impending adolescence (okay, it’s not that impending) and, just kind of, wanting to give someone a grundy.

Anyway, this was supposed to be last week’s drawing, but I ended up working on it here and there all week.  Between Thanksgiving and two family birthdays, there’s been a lot of baking/cooking/general Marthaishness going on this October.  Bring on the Hallowe’en costumes and Christmas knitting (French press cozies all around)!  Domesticity overload!  Maybe that should have been the title…

PS – thanks to Lauren, who requested this subject

PPS – thanks to Dr. T for going on about spurtles

PPPS – um, how is it that nobody has ever used the word Marthaishness online before?
