We took Jen's two 'Yellows' as she calls them, Kelly and Pippa, and my Rosie.
Poor Tuppy had to stay home with Daddy and her brother, Angus, because I didn't think it was fair either to her or the masses of dogs that go to the beach to take her along and let her brains get fried. Some dogs, just like some people, don't do well in crowded social situations.
It was a wise choice, because as a result I was able to relax and enjoy the company of my very special and gentle ten year old girl, who got to be my only dog for the morning.
This cute and amazingly-marked dog was just one of the squintillion pooches we passed on our walk.
Blue eyes too! Did you ever?
I love winter. Stormy beaches. Slanting light. Bonfires...
Those were taken from nearly the same place on two separate days. Mind bogglingly inspiring!
And rainbows too.
The chickens are enjoying the green grass, guarded over by an almost fully mature Elvis.
In other news, I've been savaging this cheap new violin case to carry my lyre, because I am off east to go to the 17th OBOD Australian Assembly.
It has been kind of fun to hack apart something new. :D Let's hope I can get it back together!
At the Assembly, I am hopefully getting to be initiated into the Druid level, so it is very exciting for me! I think it is been 13 years of study so far, through the Bardic and then Ovate grades, and now I begin the next stage of my journey. Also, I get to meet heaps of lovely fellow Druidy people, some of whom I have been friends with online for years but never met IRL before! Yay!
The live story readings are still going well and am now up to the fifth chapter. I've made a playlist on youtube, so if you want to get the whole story in one place, here it is, or will be when I finish it. There are maybe two more sessions to go, unless I decide to belt the story out all the way to the end next Sunday! Beware, is not safe for work and contains some naughtiness and swearing.
Last week I finally took myself off to join in with a local ukulele group. OMG, so much fun! Do it!
And with all this winter busyness, what has Mr Kitty been doing, I hear you ask? Did you really need to? :D
See you next time I feel bloggy!
