Up early this morning to drop Big C at a scout camp.
This particular camp had been a bit of a discussion point as earlier in the month, he was told he had to choose between two different camps on different weekends as his big bad parents considered that asking his employer to give him two weekends off before Christmas might be pushing the friendship just a little.
The compromise was that if it should happen that he was not rostered to work this weekend, well he could go to the camp and as he did get a much-needed 5 hour shift yesterday (Saturday), he joined the camp just for the final day.
A win win situation we think.
So up at sparrows fart and with Hubby deciding to join us for the ride, we headed south to the McLaren Flat area to deposit teenager with his scout friends.
Despite one wrong turn, we did eventually find the camp and then after slowing the car enough that he could roll safely as we pushed him…
Anyway, seeing as we were not far from friends, a call was made that resulted in breakfast at a local cafe.
Leisurely social Sunday breakfast – best idea ever.
Still riding the spontaneous mood, I gave into the gentle nudging of Rafa and joined the Haiku Monday crowd this week.
The theme – Lightning
The host – Dome @ Where Whispers Linger
My effort -
Cicada song loud
Scorching heat with no relief
Lightning strike – bush fire
And then I remembered this painting
So you get both dodgy poetry and appropriate image.
Something that isn’t the slightest bit dodgy though is the artwork of Botanist @ Views for the Bald Patch
When I first found him, I learned he was a sci fi writer but had no idea what an amazing artist he is.
I am so excited to share a taste of his art here today and if you click the link above, it will take you to several of his paintings as well a some information on his writing.
I want to live here.
Thank you Botanist, so very much.
And with only 24 hours left in this Art for Art giveaway, I also want to thank all my friends/readers who have taken the time to get involved. It has given me a real thrill to share your creativity here on Lizard Happy.
Not sure I will do this again though. Perhaps I have already given too much art away for it to be an incentive.
Perhaps people are just too busy this close to Christmas.
Whatever the reason, it has been a lot of fun each time I have done it and I am incredibly thankful to everybody who has taken part.
I will draw the winner of my giveaway painting later this week, and of course let you all know.
Back to work tomorrow, at my usual office. Should be good to get back to knowing where things are.
For now though, time to hang another load on the washing line and I think I might spontaneously put my feet up and be a veg for a while.
At least until the Hubby gets home from playing with his sharp pointy things
I want you guys and girls to ask me a question, any question at all as I am planning something different for my 400th post. Yep, actually planning.
Thanks heaps xx
