    Talking about rain, it been a wet day in the North Lakes today.
    They used to have a saying in Lincoln. "Rain before 7 fine before 11!" It certainly not like that here, it can rain for 36 hours no difficulty.

    I think I shall light the wood stove tomorrow, but it gets too hot so all the internal doors need opening to let it warm as much of the cottage as possible.

    The electric went off in the night for three hours a few nights ago. It is really dark when the electric goes off. Have had a 6kva diesel alternator some years but its not convenient to run up in the night.
    One has to be prepared living here in the country.

    A very beautiful autumn scene @Muddy Cyclist
    I love it. It does remind me of a drive down the Conwy valley...

    Absolutely, for art I like the Llyn Peninsula but I most enjoy the Mountains, Valleys and rivers of Wales I know many hidden gems although they are slowly being discovered and it's becoming difficult to find total seclusion.

    Great autumn scene - trees closing down for winter, branches exposed, water continuing on it’s journey.

    Definitely not a kind of Norfolk Sweeney Todds - Although Mr K did have a meat pie yesterday. Hopefully it wasn't made by Mrs Lovett.

    Don't know if you've even been by this one, not far from Tregaron on the mountain road. I call it the heart of Wales :)

    Can't say I have ever seen this. We spent many of our family holidays at Llangranog when our children were still kids. Every Summer two weeks in a house high on the cliffs looking over the beach, we would always travel there via the coast road.

    I worked in the Brecons as a Mountain Leader training the MOD guys but again never ventured that far to the Western Edge.

    Must look out for it if we are ever allowed out again. We move into Tier 2 Saturday so many plans to visit friends through November, scrapped, along with a few days planned away in out VW Camper. :banghead:

    Thank you @Muddy Cyclist
    It is a struggle sometimes! On the days when I just want to sleep all day. It is not a struggle doing the actual art once I get started, but a struggle to even pick up the pice of paper to work.
    I am like that at the moment...so you see different art on those days I suppose...

    good morning everyone on a very dark o’clock morning in the dark and dangerous north.

    The wonder wheel of spicy Mexican chicken came in at 5.6 this am - probably because I have been up since 3am.

    The good news is that SIL went home yesterday so hopefully she will make a full recovery. Numbers continue to climb though so not venturing out that much at the moment - far too many infectiousness about. I suspect that we will be awarded a tier 3 within the next few day.

    I had a play with the acetone/ink drip technique again yesterday. I may come back to it at some point but a couple of days playing with it seems about right for now. Have a great day if you can, it’s early doors koffy for me.

    Great trees @dunelm
    I like the detailed trees in the bottom pic.

    Glad SIL home and recovering.

    Have a good day

    More coffee needed I think...
