The "other" girl


Made a bit of a mess of her mouth, these little people are not so easy to do in watercolor but I keep on trying.
It has been a strange day today, I was awake half the night with high winds roaring and visions of fires coming on top of us while we slept, so of course I didnt sleep, I sat and read and finished the DI Rebus I was reading, wandered from room to room and window to window looking at a disturbed night sky.
We had a bit of an early southerly, then it turned to a northerly and roared again and now we have a cooler southerly change so I hope I sleep tonight.
The fires are sort of under control but its not easy when it is so dry and and the winds are high and more high 30's temperatures, hasnt been below 35 for nearly 2 weeks now in Adelaide.
I am all dressed up and ready to go out, probably too dressed but I dont care. An old scholars dinner for John's old school.

Nice picture of a girl.
This weather! North wind, dusty, gusty, 45 in the sun today. But it changed a bit about 6 p.m. in time for us to go out to a welcome for an Aboriginal pastor to Geelong. But the house is still very hot.
