I felt like a bit of mindless colour after I had finished cooking this afternoon. I have roasted some chicken pieces, made an egg and bacon pie and some puff pastry 'things' with the left over pastry filled with a bit of this and that and hope they taste ok!
It has been steadily and quietly raining for part of the day, so everything is wet underfoot, and as you pass by certain areas of the garden you get a drenching.
The lawns were mown yesterday, they will be growing like crazy again.
Not sure how we are going to organise tomorrow, I think it will be a matter of see what the day brings.
I am sitting quietly well I will be when I finish this, doing a bit of embroidery and waiting for the Melbourne family to arrive.
I have food if they need it so I dont really have to worry too much, I have done enough worrying up until now about how where and what, I dont really know why, as John says there will be more than enough food to feed an army!
A bit of Basho
All day in grey rain
follow the sun's
invisible road.

...I like your mindless color. It has so much energy and is so happy, and I love the simplicity in your sketch in the previous post. Sounds like you have a lot going on!

Love that rainbow of coloured pages Penny. Like you, I worry about people coming and yet there is always enough to eat and to spare and after they have gone I wonder why I worried so. Have a lovely time.

Penny the rainbow of your colours reminds me of the cliffs at Rainbow Beach. I have posted some photos of happy times with my family on the beach.

Hope you have a lovely family visit.

Your painting brings to mind a lovely altered book or even colorful feathers. It reflects a happy celebration too! Hope you have dry conditions on Saturday, Penny!
