Although it’s pouring with rain as I write this, it hasn’t clouded my memories of some wonderful winter sunshine during the past week. Great for scooting (Spider Boy) and walking (me) in the park.
I went on a girls’ night out (nothing raucus, just a quiet dinner) with my two best friends I’ve known since high school…. so that’s a loooooong time… and took in the pretty lights of night-time Bondi decked out for Winter Magic.
I had to clear some of my “stuff” out of my dad’s garage and found a box of my art and craft supplies, including these gems from a drawing class I took in 2002. The Derwents were unopened! I have always loved having a go at art, or at least the idea of art. But inspired by Sex in The City‘s Charlotte York-McDougall when she took up tap-dancing after leaving husband Trey, I took the evening-college course because I was trying to keep busy after breaking up with a boyfriend. I just remember the drawing teacher looking at my work in class and saying, “You need to practice…and Alex, practice a lot.” But I think a couple of weeks into the course, I went skiing instead, with the boyfriend I’d just broken up with. And no, he did not become my husband. That was a different break-up.
Spider Boy had caught a cold which turned into a cough so he stayed home from school. Which gave me a chance to catch up on some Ninja Turtle action. Spider Boy pulled his best Ninja Turtle face when I told him it was time for Mathletics on the computer. He wasn’t that sick.
I caught the bus home at sunset and captured these pics out the window.
