This is the third week of almost unbroken rain and it's beginning to swamp us. We've had a couple of less wet days and I think the sun broke through briefly last week, but as weather goes, this is dire! The temporary roof is just about keeping the Studio dry, but I'll not be back out there for a while yet!
Rather than give in to it, we've been togging up in raincoats and hats and taking the dog to the woods. On Monday we were joined by my Sister and her two terriers.
Manchee is doing one of his sliding turns here and little Widget just cannot catch him.
A quick stop for a treat and instructions, 'go get the ball'! Ruby, the little black Patterdale was just too quick for the boys and they barely even saw the ball!
Too late, she's already gone while the boys are still thinking about it!
The Yew grove was showing the strains of the weather with branches and whole trees brought down by torrential rain, wind and snow.
One of the fallen trees made a nice resting spot and next time we come we'll bring a flask and some sandwiches and stay longer.
My Sister and Moomin.
Meanwhile today, I have housework to tackle, Manchee's picture to finish, another painting that's pulling at my brain and some dolls to bring to life. Hmmm..... How much of that will I achieve do you think???
