|the christmas bbq last week - pic by rob biggs|
my airbnb guests from england handled the weather really well, spending lots of time out on the verandah with the fan on, having barbecues, going for early morning walks and playing in the wading pool with their very sweet 4mth old son. they did leave three days early because they had a friend's empty house to go to but i really enjoyed having them around the house for four days, a baby's voice every now and then was a delight.
i had christmas on my own surrounded by lobster claws, seafood and pudding, icecream and berries. in the heat i decided to move my current painting project inside and ended up painting for four hours before indulging in all my goodies and watching 'scrooged' with bill murray. i really enjoyed my quiet christmas.

this week has just been painting and painting, this work has a lot of small detail and needs to be finished and framed by the 9th. eek! the framer's already making the frame.
The sunsets and moon continue . . . gorgeous as ever
last night i celebrated new year's eve on the riverbank at sunset with sue and derek. after rain and 36 deg it's been really humid but by 7 it was lovely sitting down there. no mozzies either. and a visit from a night heron that appeared here yesterday afternoon.
