Very rainy days and a few sunny ones


Monday it just rained all day I went out to check the mail and I got wet doing that so I just took some photos inside, Angus went home on Sunday, he is adjusting to his new home it won't take him long lots of exciting new smells and things to explore. I was just checking out his picture in the craft room, guess I was missing him a bit too.  
And missing my daughter and her fellow too as they have moved further away, there is glass on this painting and you can see me taking the photo.

I don't think I have ever shown this painting before it was never right and now these two have separated so I don't think it will ever get finished.













This was once a clock but for some reason I think the hands fell off so I painted a picture in the frame.


Angus and Drumstick met in the backyard on Saturday afternoon.
Not to much of a problem Angus was interested and Drumstick just ignored him.
She just went about her business
but did follow him around a bit

I did paint this chair for my daughter with some oil and varnish and make a seat pillow.
Angus and Drumstick
I was cleaning the loo and was going to add some smelly stuff but this little spider had moved in and I left the top off so he could climb out but he was not in a hurry it took a couple of days, I have all sorts of reading material in my toilet.

More rain.
But today was sunny and Leroy was sun baking most of the day, she even has a teapot in case she wants a cuppa.
The beer fairy suggested we leave a egg in the area where she is laying so she doesn't change the nest area, that was a good idea because she kept changing and we had to find the new area all the time, we have now had 9 eggs in so many days .

My bathroom had a bit of a change around and new purple towels.



And the guest bedroom too had the bed moved I found a pair of sunglasses and a dollar, it's always good when the maid gets paid.

I have to get help to hang this picture up it's very heavy but the beer fairy is still asleep.

  1. Happy that you got your much needed rain. I'm guessing that Drumstick would have enjoyed that spider!

  5. I like the black phone too of course it doesn't work but I moved it out of the hall where it once lived because visitors always picked it up thinking it was a working phone.

  6. I love that you didn't get rid of the spider. So kind. That's what I would have done too. And I shouldn't think many people would have done the same.

    Oh, and as for the paintings ... you are VERY talented!

    1. Usually the beer fair takes them outside and lets them go in the gum tree out the front if they are big and hairy but this fellow was only little.

  7. Some great artwork there and I suppose there is no reason to tweak the picture of the two that are separated now. Great post, Merle. xo Diana

  8. I always enjoy coming along on your daily adventures! Merle, you are a wonderful artist and would make a great book illustrator! You should do a little book about your day to day life - it would be wonderful. I have a spider 'catcher' - a tupperware container with a flat piece of cardboard to slide underneath - out you go! Can't bring myself to kill them unless a last resort and in my bedroom. Don't like to sleep with them. Love your colorful bedroom and towels and you made me laugh with that comment about the maid. Hope you have a sunny end to your week. xo

  9. Well it Thursday and sunny, hoping for sun tomorrow to off to visit a friend and then to my daughters new house to stay overnight but if it's pouring that's all off.
    I've told a few people if they write a children's book I will illustrator it so far nobody has taken me up on it.

  10. I love your pain tings, you're so talented, the painting in the clock frame is my favourite. Good idea about the egg, you can get a fake egg to use instead of a real one, Drumstick will not know the difference and still lay in the same spot.
    Now I've been reminded that I must get into my bathroom cabinet and clear out old stuff.

  12. WOW You are very talented. I really like your pictures. I can't even paint a wall. I love your wood floors. Great for dancing. You could spend a whole week in your loo and not get bored. LOL
    Some great photos
