Pencil sketches

I cant exactly say that pencil scans as well as when I sketch in pen, but sometimes it is whatever is handy. At the moment just trying to keep my hand in. The weather is hot and now getting rather humid. The fires raging in the Adelaide hills are not really any better, tomorrow is forcast to be just as hot and with stronger winds but with a hope of some rain over the next few days as well. We are walking early, doing what we have to and then not doing much at all. to me it seems very waste full but I am still embroidering next years Christmas ornaments while I can. John is doing lots of watering while we still have water and I have been potting up more plants, not sure if it is to take with me if we have to sell everything, or just to take my mind off things. I do not like heat and my feet ache, the air con is a help but not the complete answer as evaporative ones dont like it much over 38 degrees and if it is humid makes things worse. Sometimes I think the fan is just as good. So long as you dont move too much or go out in the heat. Things get fed a lot later than normal too and some dont like it at all! Bring on autumn, says she and we have only just got into summer.

We are having a little cold snap here in Ontario with a high today of -16C. i think it's easier to deal with the cold than the heat, as I can just pile on more layers of clothes. Hope you get some rain and cool relief soon.
