Inner city

This is another sketch, this time an inner city scene complete with graffiti.
I have a friend staying and we are doing very little today.a s we were late last night.
Had a wonderful meal, pre dinner drinks and nibbles in the tennis house watching the kangaroos and the light across the valley, then various courses all of which went down well, and just about 20 minutes before midnight the lights went out, so we sat around the table with candles doing a count down to midnight, and we sat around for a while later to see if they would come on but they didnt.
We arrived home safely to find that our power was on and had not been out so I have no idea what all that was about.
I think as we get older we all wish for the same things, that we will be back next year and in reasonable health. I would love some wealth but the way things are looking that is not to be so we just manage the best we can, and lets face it we still have a roof over our heads and a bit of money to spend.
We did a bit of window shopping this morning as we went in to get the paper, watching tourists enjoying the cooler weather!
This Haiku by Yayu has no relevance to any thing, I just like it.

A Very Happy New Year to you and your family Penny. Your watching for midnight sounds very similar to ours here except that there is deep snow. I so agree with your wishes for the new year - health has got to be the priority - and compared with some parts of the world we are rich indeed. Best wishes.

Happy New Year, Penny! I enjoyed your description of your dinner last night. I love the idea of sitting with friends and watching kangaroos. The power going out just adds to a lovely picture in my mind.

I wish the best of everything for you and your family!

I like your last three drawings with their strong black and white contrasts. And a Happy New Year. It's cooler here now, thank goodness, after the 38 heat so it's easier to do chores.
