My 400th Post

These last 2 weeks have been awful here. We have had colds, the flu, and some kind of coughing virus has hit us full on. Not much has been happening but I have taken a few Instagram pics here and there.

The first two pics are of the boys, both home from Kindy and School for days on end trying to get rid of their sicknesses. Luca has now become obsessed with Minecraft. Luckily all he wants to do is make it with Lego. I'm trying to limit his computer time otherwise he would try to be on there all day.

Remi just crashed out!

The next one is the beautiful winter sky that has been seen most days lately. Stunning!

Drawing on my iPad today

Above is an iPad drawing I did. My iPad is my most favourite play thing at the moment. I have been doing digital finger paintings on it since January and I'm building up quite a collection.

The middle two are of my gorgeous little Installation Artist, Remi. He spent hours making "bats" from Magnetix (I think that's what it's called). He stuck them on the walls with sticky tape. He was so pleased with himself, and so was I.

Look what I just came across. Some bats hanging on the wall by little Remi. Cool huh!

The next two are the spectacular winter sunrises we have been having. I walk into the living room every morning, and this is what I see. Gorgeous!

The last two are of an early morning sun ray, and a banksia that my kids gave me for my birthday, it's so lovely to draw specimens like this.

So I'm still battling this awful cough, my lovely husband is away for a little while and I must say, my kids are being quite good lately. 

I am desperate to get back into my studio but it is so cold down there. My plan is to submit a painting for the Warringah Art Exhibition again this year, which is coming up next month, but hopefully I won't be painting it until the last minute this time. Thank goodness I have been painting lots this year and can pull one from my building collection. (Unless I decide to do a last minute piece - aaahhhh, no thank you... I don't want that to happen - again.) 

Wish me luck!

P.S. This is my 400th post! I have been writing here since April 2007, that's 5 years. Who would've thought I'd still be babbling on about myself after all these years?
