Bubbles before and after lockdown

  1. Day 2 and it’s damp but not too cold… it could be nice and warm inside that bubble. Love your quirky drawings, Rachel. Love that your spirit is still creative. It’s going to be a challenge for sure.

      Actually I’m in a small WhatsApp group called Morning Scribble. So my aim is to do a drawing a day for four weeks. We shall see.

    How is Ursula coping? So much attention from her mistress or have you Ursula decided enough is enough…I’m sure there’s supposed to be comma in the word string 🙂
    I thought your title of the post had to do with the alcoholic beverage because “bubble/s” is such a new buzz word….Oxford Dictionary folk will have to be adding appendix after appendix with all these new words!

      Oh yes, that’s an idea, bubbles indeed. Ursula doesn’t know she’s in lockdown as she always stays indoors or on my deck or roof. So no problem.

    My fellow bubble occupant and I are accustomed to one or other of us being away from home reasonably frequently. It is a key to our relationship’s considerable longevity. I’m now wondering about bubbles within bubbles!

      Haha. We can’t all have separate wings but a bubble…?

  4. Exactly 1 week ago today, my daughter and I were blowing bubbles from the balcony of her apartment in Adelaide. And now, I am in Toronto in 14 day mandatory quarantine. Life is so very unpredictable and quite wonder-full.

    You make me want to run to the dime store and buy bubbles! Oops. No can do.
