August Sketchbook Challenge – Shelter

I haven’t been working in my journal much lately and have missed it. I also miss participating in the Sketchbook Challenge, so I have decided to complete the challenges for each month that I have missed even though they are over. A few weeks ago I was at our families cabin and thought the Sketchbook Challenge theme “Shelter” fit how I feel about the cabin very well. My Dad built this log structure and I have always admired his skills. I would like to build small dwellings someday…maybe. Anyways, above is a journal entry including the adorable little cook stove that is in the cabin.

Another view from the cabin featuring the old couch that is past it’s prime. I thought I better paint a picture of it before it’s gone.

I am also thinking about the people on the East Coast and how many of them have lost their “Shelter” because of Hurricane Sandy. They are in my thoughts and prayers and I am reminded to fortify my shelter with food and supplies for the upcoming Winter. It is always wise to be prepared well in advance.
