I have just had fun finishing this little scene off, Using my inktense pencils and a water brush by the fire. I think a village like this might be nice to live in. It is freezing cold and I think if the clouds clear we will have a frost not that I want one but it does help set the fruit for the fruit trees. We walked this morning, just managed it before the rain set in we went where the whales have been seen, two mothers with calves, newly born but the seas were terribly rough and I would imagine they had moved out away from the shore a bit, huge waves coming in again. This really is a bit what I would call a normal or nearly normal winter for us. It is very pleasant sitting by the fire and sewing, reading or drawing. Not that is all I have done, I have cleaned out the spare bedroom for my sister and made beds and dusted and vacuumed and made my shoulder ache, hence the slothful sitting by the fire! Off to feed the chooks and Max and Oscar, then sort out something for dinner.
