Thank you Ds Design for the lovely graphic.

Good Morning, thought I would make an early start today before Stuart gets back from his art class and we have lunch as I have a busy afternoon ahead.  We have to do the nursery run today that means a trip to Perth and back to collect Ellen.  She is no bother at all she is usually tired when we get in and she just likes to climb up on the sofa and watch Tom and Jerry or the likes while she has a drink and a biscuit. She has her box of toys she plays with the favourite thing being you know the gold balls on a long string we use at Christmas well she will play with that for hour sit can be a skipping rope or a magic circle what ever she likes.  We don't have here too long as Richard or Lisa will pick her up and being Friday they both finish early so I will have to be smart with her tea.  It has been a lovely week weather wise up here dry and the sun has been shining most of the time.  I looked out of my front window yesterday and my prized violas were all lying down for want of a drink I don't think I have ever had to water pots at this time of year before so the weather is surely drier for us as well. There was a email circulating this morning about emails and I have been meaning to say that before I started my journal I never had any emails unless they were junk now I always have a full mailbox and I do enjoy it you feel so special when you hear the lady from AOL saying You've got email. Thank you to you all for making me feel special. Well I had better go and see about lunch as Stuart will be in a 10 minutes. Wonder what he will have painted today think it was going to be a Still Life. Bye for now. Love

Hi Joan, same here re watering pots and the baskets we put up about a month ago.   Sounds like we have had more sun further north as it has been glorious for at least 3 weeks and continues to be...so I'm not complaining!! Ellen sounds so sweet. I love the way  little children  are so imaginitive...so cute.  Coloured clothes pegs would become raspberrys and bananas oranges etc when my young grandaughter played her "shop" games selling me fruit etc.  Hope Stuart enjoyed his art class. Eve

Hi Joan,  All my winter pansies have died because they haven`t had enough water.  I couldn`t believe it because nothing usually needs watering this early in the year.  Oh well, soon it will be Summer bedding plants. I will water them...lol! Isn`t it nice to have all those emails everyday? :o)

Hi Joan, hope you are going to take a pic of hubby's painting and add it into your journal.Because my father was a painter of wildlife, like Tunnicliffe, I didn't inherit his detail, I am more of an oil and acrylic bold painter, apart from horses, but it is a wonderful talent to have because I find it very theraputic(can't spell ) and if I had time, I would do more. Wish I could grow plants also, but they never seem to survive !

Hope you had a good day and that Stuart had a good art lesson.  Today we went to a Art Fair here in Neveda.   Such beautifull paintings.  Enjoy your busy afternoon and the visit with Ellen.       Dawn

We have had to water the garden quite often, just to stop everything from keeling over. It's so dry here - we are on clay and it's turned to rock! Take care.
