Playing with elephants

The friend we stayed with in Northern Victoria comes from a circus family and one of his loves are the elephants. His house had lovely elephant things in it. The second sketch is of a clay baby elephant, it was gorgeous and my sketch doesnt really do it justice.
so from there I went to playing, not anatomically correct at all but a fun bit of play while I was recovering from a few over the top days.
I came home feeling wonderful I think one of the symptoms of the meds I am on says 'euphoric'! So I have walked, cleaned, tidied up and generally made myself a bit over tired today.
Now I am sitting sketching and having a bit of catch up sit down time.
John has been fishing, some nice fish for dinner tomorrow, tonights is pasta and is organised, but I think we are both pretty tired.
A beautiful couple of days, rain at night and then warm and sunny so the weeds will start if I am not careful. I am having a gentle wander down to the stables and pulling some grass and thistles as I go for the ponies. That should keep me a bit on top if I do it regularly, well until Spring finally hits and then I wont be able to keep up.

Hi Penny it sounds like your break did you a lot of good.
I like your elephants. My daughter collects them and I was so glad when she left home and took them with her she had so many. Now I feel sorry for her husband because she is still collecting.

Lovely little sketches Penny. Who ever does keep up with gardening and weeds. A little a day is better both for the garden and for the back.

Elephants are wonderful, especially the baby ones.
The weather is picking up at last with a bit of sunshine. It's chaotic here though with cleaning out the garage, sheds, changing beds and driving to the tip with junk. It cost an extra $19 to give away a bed base!
