Winter Frosts

If I get up early enough, sometimes I am lucky enough to see the frosts. A fine icy covering over the hills.  Dropplets of dew hanging on the bare branches.The early morning light is divine here in the Southern Highlands (NSW). I am almost tempted to give up my night owl ways.....

These lovely colors would certainly draw me out of bed early.

catching up here so much to see...love the drawings, love the kid on the tree stump! LOL So much fun for free in the country! Lucky him.
Love the felt and all the baked goods too. Love coming and partaking of all the goodies you serve up.

Aaaw you are so lucky to live in a continent with so many natural phenomena. The clouds, the flora, and fauna and the water! Well I am a night owl and then I wake up early too. So I just take naps in the evening. Have a great weekend, Messyfish!

Aren't pastels fun??? I suppose newsprint paper would work great with them. This sure is pretty with the colors you chose!

Thanks for being so positive on my EDM's! Your artwork always sort of spurs me on!

I made some whole wheat bread with 10 added grains today. It tasted good, but I think the whole wheat was too much...I will repeat, but use more white and less whole wheat flour. I am enjoying making breads...so much fun!

yes, i have this internal conflict, too. early morning serenity vs late night solo time. my main issue is that at night i am ALONE and no matter how quite i try to be in the mornings, if i rise early, so do the children!
