It is the silliness

I am not doing very well with Carla Sonheims on line class, time just seems to get away but the other day she suggested elephants, I think it was dont look and dont take the pen off the paper. Well I cheated a bit with the eyes and had to back track for the ears but here are my three grey beauties cavorting in amongst the grass and the flowers.
I lovely thing to quietly sit and play with last night while there was nothing worth watching on tv.
I had a lovely day yesterday, and thank you to all who sent best wishes, I have to say that the food and surroundings were better than if we paid to go out and what we had was healthy ( well apart from the fizz) and so both lunch and dinner were the best food and good wine and no rush and no hurry. Have a look at the photos on my other blog here.
Today is still warm and I have tidied, the cleaning comes later, I dont know how we have so many things that seem to pile up on top of things but at least you can now find room on the top of tables.
We had quite a foggy morning this morning so this Haiku by Shiki says it all.
How far the skylark soars
a cloud-mountain
breathing -in sun-mist!

When I saw this, it made me think of my fav book of all time...Just So Stories by Rudyard Kipling! The Elephants Child. Neat drawings...and you are right...sitting and doing this is so much better that TV! It is all trash over here in the U.S.
Very pretty hiaku!!!
