Alright, I’m back to my regularly scheduled week. Apparently that means not getting much sleep again. This time it was mostly Christmas related things distracting me. I suppose I can’t entirely blame Christmas for my brother’s visit but I can a little bit. Not that him visiting is a bad thing, it’s just another thing that’s happening. The main distraction, beyond the usual reading, actually originated from today’s sketch. I had intended to try for an early night so I settled for a simple easy sketch rather than something more complicated and time consuming. Thus the snowman. The sketch just so happened to remind me of something I had intended to get someone for Christmas this year that I completely forgot about. Then that led me on a bit of an Amazon binge. I just couldn’t get the shipping and gift options to work out in my favour. Sometimes these things can be really exhausting. In the end I had to just give up on it. I’ll give it another shot when I’m slightly more awake … whenever that might be.
The pen sketch/doodle for the day on the other hand was once again inspired by The X-Files. I suppose both of my sketches for today ended up being doodles really but this one was a bit more intentionally so. My husband and I finished Season 7 of The X-Files this evening and I did this doodle during that episode. In some ways it feels like the end of the show so I kind of wanted to mark it somehow. Now we just need to get through the final two Mulder-less seasons. I never actually watched those all the way through. When they originally aired I was too disappointed by Mulder leaving the show and mostly just tuned in for his guest appearances. So it may actually be interesting to finally watch them.
