Washing day

Well after all the family left and I had put away all the Christmas decorations, that is what I spent the rest of the day doing. Washing.
Of course we ran out of rain water half way through, it always happens after I have had the family for a few days as the tanks only hold so much and then apart from the kitchen drinking water we go onto spring water, which has iron in it so all whites become a pinky colour.
the Eastern states are having floods and when that happens usually we stay dry for quite a long time, unless a cyclone comes in off the north west and still has rain in it when it comes our way. Then we can have summer floods too.
A much cooler and pleasant day today, trouble is as usual we all feel sleepy so doing anything is a drag.
I am still playing with textural stuff which is on my other blog, but things are a bit slow.
Tomorrow is Adelaide and it will be hotter there but I havent seen my mother for a couple of weeks.

Happy New Year. It's so hard for me to imagine a New Year's Eve outdoor Bar-B-Q with friends and family. Love your recent sketches, especially this lovely loose painting of wash day.

Happy New Year, Penny!

I love your sketches! It's nice to get things back to normal after the Holidays. I have my laundry to do tomorrow.

Nice to see you back!

I am enjoying your sketches and paintings. The clothesline really brings back memories, it is very endearing

We put away the clutter of Christmas decorations, taking down one thing each day for a week. My grand-daughter and her Mum have returned to Fiji so it's very quiet - with Peceli away too. I have never thought to do a picture of the washing line - ours would be very bright these days with summer clothes flying in the breeae and lately it has been full of the little garments of a five-year-old girl.
