****Daily Wash Saturday 26 th January 2013***

Happy Australia day everyone!

Lashing rain, wind and mist all day. But WARM. it was very conducive to inertia so I remained inert for most of the day, apart from the washing and having to use the drier which made the studio insufferable.

Oswald hasn't reached us yet. he is still at Bundaberg region causing havoc.

We get to see his gentility tomorrow.

Yes JJ. Tanks are overflowing And we have put fire pump to bed.

Henry, Crocodile Dunblane?

Steve why on earth would anyone need written instruction to stay away from crocodiles? Except the shielas of course. Shiela is slang in Australia for lady. Isn't it Henry?

OK Lulu, I claim the underarm award? BO. Not my cat.

Trees are behaving like drunken Spanish dancers. Love the rain and mist but can the Wendy stay away ? Wind for those not versed in Mt Nebo language.

Cooking stuff so shall return K

Good morning Annie, calm here but we has 2 inches of snow overnight. Fear not, it will go, we are expecting a warm front with 5-7C temperatures by tomorrow.

Hope Wendy is in a good mood by the time she reaches Mt Nebo Full tanks and no fire risk anyway.

Saw the dramatic rescue of the boy from the raging torrent on TV yesterday.

Re: ****Daily Wash Saturday 26 th July 2013***

Hello washers,

Annie, Happy Australia Day. Inertia is far too rare and much too important to be scoffed at. I am all for it!

JJ - I like your easel, but Monty definitely steals the photo.

Hi, Doug - glad it is getting warmer. Too bad we can't say the same thing here, with over a week of solid below-freezing temps.

I have cut back my Dieffenbachia to the short bare stumps, and have also sectioned some of the cut=off stalks and plopped them into the pot also. I will post a photo of the sad, sorry creature this weekend. I am just about resigned that the plant is no more. Now I will have to find something else for that favored spot in my living room. I need something tall and full but not too bushy.

I am off to my-brother-the-geek later for a lazy visit . . . and a trip to Sears near his house, looking for a new treadmill. Mine has given up the ghost after 12 years.

Have a good day everyone.

Happily soggy here!

I designed myself a travel easel attachment, and Alan made it for me. It is taken off the rather expensive travel easels.

Here is mine. (with Monty) The easel weighs 136grams 4.8oz


This is the store bought one..

Re: ****Daily Wash Saturday 26 th July 2013***

Thank you Doris. Guinevere is pretty special too.


Both she and Monty are 18 years old now.

You did the right thing with your Dieffenbachia plant, it will regrow. You will have new plants too, if you are lucky. Just keep your plant away from drafts, and not too close to a window. Between 6 to 8 foot is good. Keep it moist, but don't overwater it.

Did you know, their common name is Dumb Cane? So called, because your throat will swell up and you wont be able to speak if you eat the foliage. It is poisonous to cats, dogs, and small children.

Thanks Doug, he did didn't he. I will tell him you said so.

Re: ****Daily Wash Saturday 26 th July 2013***

Good Day All,
It has been miserably cold in the Fahrenheit single digits for a week, and it is not expected to go above freezing until Tuesday. Snow expected for tomorrow, though we really haven't had much of that.

Annie, so glad the threat of fire is over for now. Time to plant in the garden again?

JJ, you'll have a comfortable setup when sketching now.
Your Guinevere and Monty look good for their age.

Doris, my treadmill is eight years old and looks brand new. But, I have started to use it again, determined to have a healthier year.

Doug,

Thinking about Geoff,
Bill

Could be arthritis, especially if the pain is on the top of the foot.
