Hot, cold and wet weather, painting pictures and a naughty cat.

We had a few rainy days most of the fires are out only the ones down near the Victorian border are still going and they are pretty much under control but I've spent more time inside so started a few new paintings,
Is a bit on the cold side at the moment last week we had just one day at 110f I think that is about 45c and since then cool and today cold, so not so bad painting a fire, this one is called "cosy toes ", I have been going to put some in the gallery to see if I  can sell them but all the ones I  already have are not on the right boards  they have to be a certain thickness but they are not going to good at the moment.

Tom Tom is not popular at the moment I was defrosting some steak for tea but he thought it was a good idea to eat it  but couldn't finish it but got through half and we had to go buy a chicken for our tea there will be no more defrosting on the kitchen bench.
Do you think he looks sorry

I don't, more contented and full.

The second one is started

There was a break in the rain this afternoon  so just time for a few quick photos outside.

The strong man I found in the shed needed a shower I  think he was enjoying the rain.

We got half way through the mulching before the rains started now all wet and soggy but will get back to it when it clears up.
my herbs are now doing well

and the lemon tree looks better it was close to death
looking greener not so brown as it was
