So today... I'm hoping Steve will make some sort of stand so I can display my ink paintings and trivets/coasters at the up-coming craft fair.
He reckons it won't take much to sort something out. We will see.
Apart from that, we really don't have any plans for the day!
Probably just enjoy the company.
I've made a few more small trivets, so will varnish them today and get them finished in the next day or two.
Bex made herself a large trivet tile yesterday too. I will show you later. It's quite nice.
Right, I'm off to get some more washing on.
Might not be the day for getting it dry outside though. It rained last night quite a lot.
Talk about stormy weather! Lots of places got hit hard overnight, luckily not too bad here.
A big tree just down the road spilt at the base and has fallen into the park. My new little tree, in the new garden by the kitchen and lounge windows, lost one of it's new branches, but that's ok, we were going to trim it off anyway.
This weather is perfect for the gardens... masses of new growth everywhere.
I just hope it doesn't rain NEXT monday! (30th)
Steve has gone out to talk to the people he built the big deck for, they want him to do more work for them. Then he will build my display stand all going well.
The stupid sun has come out... but you can bet it will be pissing down again soon enough. It's just one of those days.
Shit ya know it's a boring day when you talk about the weather! lol
The neighbour's dog is usually confined to their property by a special collar that stops him crossing the 'boundary line'... but he's having a break from it cos it was giving him a rash.
We didn't mind him visiting at all.
In between all the showers, I did a little gardening...
ABOVE: The garden is bursting with produce. We can't keep up with the lettuces.
ABOVE: Steve and Bex are taking home one of the cabbages, that leaves two for us, then I can plant some more lettuces for further down the track.
Talking of 'track'.... there's lots of cycle tracks around here... and guess who turned up unexpectedly this morning? ...
ABOVE: Russell and Ange! They drove to the Velodrome which is a few kms out of town, and rode their bikes to our's.
They are working on their fitness... good on them!
ABOVE: off they go! I hope they dodged the showers.
I've spent the afternoon watching Steve build my display stand, then I made some more tiles. Steve made one this afternoon too.
Dinner tonight is chicken stir fry with noodles.
Well dinner was so-so tonight. Not my best effort, but everyone ate it. So that's good.
I am going to put some tiles on my new display stand, then take a photo and show you.... TOMORROW.
It will give me something to put on the blog in the morning eh? *smiles*
Signing off for the night, watching 800 words... love it!
