The Dawn Patroller caught the early morning mist.
With this hare posing - as they do.
In the afternoon I had to go to Fraserburgh. It was so hot and so still. I parked up at the harbour where the smaller fishing boats anchor and got these two pictures.
So warm. And no wind. Bliss. And no rain forecast for the next few days. Already the permanent repair to the garage roof has been done. Tomorrow the lawns will be cut.
Later I went down into my studio (summerhouse) and attempted to make works of art of these photographs of cows that the Dawn Patroller had taken for me. Very brave, as he is frightened of cattle. But I guess there was a big fence they were behind.
My use of pencil and pastels - well, need a bit more practice!
A finished knitted baby blanket. It does have flecks of colour in it. But I am up against a daughter who does not like pastels or blue for a boy. Which is what is due any day now.
Project for the next rainy day. Since we moved in here I have been getting rid of carpets. I do not like carpets. We have three cats and I prefer to see the paw prints, flea evidence or whatever and remove it easily and hygienically. Thus I prefer hard flooring. For some reason the Dawn Patroller was very reluctant at me saying remove the carpet on the stairs.
Whilst doing a manic vacuuming yesterday - why is it men do it more thoroughly than us? Probably because they do not do it every day. The carpet lifted, so he had a look. And what did he find? A beautiful wooden stair case underneath.
Minus any pplaces for cat fleas to hide.
Then I can really enjoy the Indian Summer and the Winter too.
