Re: ** Daily Wash Thursday 20th June 2013**

You're on the ball Geoff...
Good afternoon to you and the rest of the world!
Wet day here and refreshingly cold lol......7C .......
Planning to drive south to stay with family for the weekend, not sure the roads will be clear of snow though...

Have been to the dentist today, just a routine check, nothing amiss , then on to the gym, feeling warm and toasty, stretched and strengthened! lol

A new book has come in the mail today, a follow-on from Call the Midwives by Jennifer Worth, "Shadows of the Workhouse". There are two more after that.

A cuppa now then a read I think!

Thinking of those in need, especially Henry and Lesley

Enjoy your Thursday everyone.

Re: ** Daily Wash Thursday 20th June 2013**

Mornin' each .......

Well had a very tearful lady on the phone last night, Annie the owner of the now deceased dog Wezley, the picture from yesterday. She wanted the painting wrapped so that she could open the packaging when she got home, she just dare not open it a work she knew she would be so upset. Anyway she was very pleased with it and said it looked just like Wezley, I was relieved at that due to the limited reference I had to work from. She told me she was inviting the neighbours around today for a viewing ...........

Chris is now sorting clothes out for our trip downunder, we don't know what to take with Lulu, JJ and Annie coming on here daily and saying how cold it is, lulu's now talking about snow blocking the transport systems ...... and here we are looking at the temps and thinking well that sounds warm ........ you can't win.

I think layers are to be the order of the day ......... So if I do meet up with JJ and Annie ,,,,,,,,,,, and who knows maybe Lulu then I will be the one wearing a T-shirt and shorts .......

Annie and JJ I will be available for a met anytime after the 16th to 25th July you name the time date and place and Chris and I will try to fit it in. It would also be nice to meet Allan (Jameson .... I think???) if at all possible.

Cold night here again but the sun is bursting through and we may have another scorcher at 18 degrees ............. Gotta luv the British Summer.

Re: ** Daily Wash Thursday 20th June 2013**

Hi Geoff and Lulu and all to follow.

The finale of the planking exercise, read retaining walls, was finished today when we put lots of sugar cane mulch over the top of an arrestingly degraded garden beneath. Everything will be back next spring. Hopefully not the weeds. I promise to net my persimmon tree next year. They have to ripen on the twig but the coloured flying eatingus anythingus, AKA King Parrots, got them at the just ripening stage. We did have a good crop, green.

Mandarins are lovely at the moment, and our somewhat ahem small oranges are so sweet. Flying thieves have discovered the raspberry, which is due for a big cut back. So that'll teach them.

Well, fire is lit. Bo has seconded the place as HIS. Once scared, bewildered and shy, he now nudges the fire replenisher and is affectionate, so long as you put
another log on the fire. Get it in there!. He is red hot most of the time, but cats know what cats want.

Roger has done so much today, so we squabbled about dinner and settled on cheezels. I'm not hungry, he's not ... bacon and eggs tomorrow

Edit Hi Kev. it's about the same temperature here. Bring warm stuff to be worn over tee shirts. Such are the vagaries.. it is going to rain tomorrow and even the BOM guy said in essence it will be miserable. Only one day though. Our winter sunshine will return. July and August are the best. Except for the westerlies. Winds.

Speaking of that Caryl, I love your shelf cloud. I always called them roll clouds. But they do roll, shelfily Don't worry. it's not a word.

Re: ** Daily Wash Thursday 20th June 2013**

everyone,
It is grey and raining but much warmer temps overnight. It is presently 12 and going up to the low 20s.

I have a little bit more packing to do for the workshop out of town this weekend but most of the prep work is done. I will be teaching an easy half day of gallery wrapping watercolour paper, mounting it on cradle board, and discussing ways of varnishing. I am also helping my sister for one of her workshops with India ink. I'll be showing flat and graded washes.

That photo looks so inviting. I hope we get some warmer temps soon.

Kev - layers are the only way I know how to dress. sounds like you are going to have a great time meeting up with everyone available.

Annie - all those wonderful fruit trees sounds great to have in your yard but I guess you can't have the fruit without the critters that also love them.

Good morning Geoff, Lulu, JJ, and all who follow. I need a cup of coffee while answering emails and then get ready to run a few errands. Have a great one everyone.

Re: ** Daily Wash Thursday 20th June 2013**

Hi folks, I popped in early then forgot to post

Received shocking news at the art class, one of our really talented artists, Brian died while we were in Jersey at the age of 71. He had cancer and hadn't said anything about it. Such a loss. He had a page of sketches published in the local paper a couple of months ago. Everyone was totally shocked. He had been missed these past three weeks.

Well, the fine start has gone downhill and it is now overcast with a threat of rain. Bowls might be a hit an miss affair.

Painted Gorey castle in class.

Doug

Impressed with Brisbane...saw it on an old 'Who do you think you are' programme on one of our smaller channels last night....

Rain, here but patchy........caravan spare in country.

Kev...glad your lady liked the beagle...one of my friends does portraits but not animals and she was asked to do a picture of a couple with the cat sitting in between.....when she went for first sitting they produced a dead but badly stuffed cat and some photographs.....she couldn't do it.

Hi to All

Overcast here and a bit cooler

Lesley had her biopsy carried out yesterday after the figured out a way for her to position herself reasonably pain free. The results will be ready in ten days and then go to a meeting of surgeons etc. Trying to keep her as calm as possible until then.

Thanks to everyone for your support.

Caryl, super photos, your house is fantastic!

I might even get some painting done today thumbsup:

Henry

Sunny here again, another lovely cool day, 14C going up to 22C. Lovely for dancing in the park for our Solstice celebration.....I won't be dancing, but going along for the pot luck supper, maybe some sketching. And must do some sewing this morning, friend is getting anxious.

Horrors, what a request, Geoff!!!

Sorry about your loss, Doug, very hard news to hear.

Sounds like a fun workshop, Ellen, should be more relaxing for you than some you have been involved with

(((Lesley and Henry)))

Your assorted dependents must love you and Roger, Annie, you take such good care of their menus Unfair of them not to leave you at least a portion. Oranges sound lovely. We have been getting some tiny ones here (in the grocery store!), really delicious.

Hi Lulu, Kev, JJ and all to come, hope everyone has a rewarding day!

Re: ** Daily Wash Thursday 20th June 2013**

Happy Thursday...it's ALMOST Friday.

Another lovely sunny, mild morning. It's refreshingly cool but is going to shoot upward and get quite warm/HOT later and for the next 5 or 6 days they say. The killer will be the high humidity along with the HOT.

I'm sipping my hot, black coffee and have my knee propped up. The coffee is strong and hot just the way I like it. Ahh..tastes delish.

Kev, your trip sounds wonderful and I'm sure you'll enjoy meeting up with other WC'ers.

LuLu, and you sound excited abut your upcoming trip too.

Doug, sorry about your friend that passed away. Some people are very private and don't want to tell others of their struggles. He sounded like a great guy and I'm sure he'll be missed in your group.

Sending (((()))) to Henry and Lesley.

Larry had to go in at 3am again this morning. Now he cannot be forced anymore this week; only twice in a week so he's safe. He's looking forward to the weekend off; we have lots of stuff to get done.

Kaitlyn passed her test last evening to get her driving license; now just the road test. She says she has to learn to parallel park. Her Papa told her he'd take her and try it out. Drivers training cost Matt and Jen about $500.00! And now Kelsea is old enough to start. Back in my day it was offered through the High School and free.

I wore a long sleeved top today because yesterday I froze here at work. THey put the air conditioning on too high. Everyone is usually too cool. Today I'm just comfortable.

Monday is our Jen's 35th Birthday; I think we'll celebrate it on Saturday with a cook out. I just cannot believe that she's that old already. Josh will be 33 in July and Justin 31 in December. Where in the world do the years go??

I hope you all have a great day planned and that it involves doing something creative.

Let your creative juices flow!

Re: ** Daily Wash Thursday 20th June 2013**

Good Morning!!!

Bright sunshine, no clouds, 12C right now going up 24C, a PERFECT day.

Having the scrabble ladies here this afternoon. Will buy a small cheese cake and dribble some raspberry sauce over it

Temperature is getting warmer and warmer day by day and no rain forecast means I will have to start watering the garden.

I didn't get to the art show yesterday evening, came home too late from physio so will make a nice day of it on Saturday or Sunday.

Kev, you did do a wonderful job with the doggie, no wonder she is very pleased.

Another mini meet, how great is that

Henry, HUGS for you and Lesley. I sooooo hope for good results!! I still think the whole thing is taking waaaaaaaaaaaaay too long.

Doug, so sorry about your friend's passing.

Ellen, enjoy your workshop!! Can't wait to hear what you think of the silk painting.

Annie, same thing happening here with fruit and the flying thiefs and racoons that climb up the trees.

Breakfast is calling, to all of you and wishing you a great day!!

Uschi
