With the absence of sunny beautiful hot weather, I made this ATC for a swap with Debbi (oops! hope your not visiting today!) Well we sat the storm out last night. It was upgraded to a "weather bomb" (?) There was only 8mm of rain, but the wind was pretty strong. Our power went out at 1/4 to 10pm and was out for 2 hours. Then it went out again at about 1/4 past 1am. This wouldn't have normally been a problem, but we were waiting up to watch the rugby match, the All Blacks vs the Wallabies, (Aussies). The game started and the power went out! If I wasn't so darn tired, it would have been quite romantic in front of the fire, with a flickering candle in the background! (It's also very hard to be romantic when you have 2 cats and a dog trying to push their way to the front, and climb over you so they can hog the fire!) We went to bed. The radio said the All Blacks got a thrashing!
This morning the damage doesn't look too bad, I think we got off lightly. The veges in the garden have a distinct lean to them!
And our young wind-break hedge trees have a lean as well. Even the trees that were staked are leaning, the ground is so water-logged everything goes!
Well I thought I might ask a question on a regular basis to get your ideas thoughts, etc...
Question of the week: What art supply have you bought that you've tried and not liked?
I bought some paint sticks, which I've used 6 or 7 times, but I don't like them. I don't like the strong oil paint smell that lingers with the finished piece, and I don't like how it takes so long to dry. Anyone want to do a swap for some paint sticks??
