    Poor Mr Gee :(

    Thank you for the painting and project compliments @geefull

    I like David Bellamy's work also.
    Your painting is wonderful, and I love the sky.

    Thank you for sooty painting compliment and Plein Air trees.

    As for David Bellamy and colour in the distance he's almost as good as you, but not quite in my opinion. Great mountain watercolour.

    Thank you. Eerie but wonderful, I enjoy walking through forests at night, no torch, just let the darkness wrap itself around you. I used to Bike ride at night but lights are needed now I enjoy walking in the darkness, my favourite walks is no moon and crisp frost.

    @geefull hugs for Mr Gee, however I bet you couldn't help having a chuckle once Katy was rescued. :)

    I have the same thing with Archie and Poppy. They have identical tug toys but will both tussle over the same tug toy. They do exactly the same with a chew.

    I still have good night sight with no torch. But can't do the walking now :(
    I like seeing what the silvery moon is going to highlight...
    It is special...

    No sign of it so far gennepher...they have a more gentler flashing fairy lights around the pillars on their porch...so fingers crossed...a very impressive nature barrier you've done in your bathroom...if the neighbour adds more I'll be sending Charlie & Lola over with some mini wire cutters.

    Up super early anti-coagulant clinic this morning...tempted to put it off but if I get a decent INR level I may not have to go until the New Year...decisions early in the morning are not my forte...will mull it over with another coffee...a very lazy weekend (again) the more time I spend at home the less I seem to do...work is busy but I have to push myself to do other things...woke to a 6.9...keep safe everyone.

    Good morning all. Today's challenge for me is to resist saying "I told you so" to an ailing Julie. Why? The pups/dogs burst out of the shelter they have used from day one and chewed many things. The most precious was a boot of which I believe Julie was especially fond and had acquired at a bargain price. It will do no good but will be nigh on impossible not to say "now you know how I felt about the Timberland boat shoes your last bad decision ate." or "I said all along we shouldn't have dogs until this place was ready." Good job today was another 4.30 start before more damage was done. Fbg was 5.3 - very, very sub-optimal but could be any or all of three reasons: new sensor which was way off yesterday; widening food choices (still v low carb/sub keto level hence 4.30 wake up) or a cold/off colour somehow. Have a safe and useful day whilst I battle the urge to utter that phrase.:arghh:

    Good Morning and 5.9 for me today.

    Not sure what the day will bring, certainly not a Muddy Bike ride it's very unappealing outside.

    Over the weekend more flashing Christmas lights appeared in the Close, some very tasteful around doors with well displayed garlands and others just tat. Still it's festive on these dark nights and a tree in our front garden manages to block out the tattiest of displays.

    Stay young at heart, embrace time and remember the best things in life are free. Keep safe.

    Thank you @Muddy Cyclist - I like to stick to the so called rules of Chinese painting when it comes to trees and with sumi-e it can go a bit nuts. I will attempt some groupings that show different methods with both trees and leaves.
    I really like your pine trees fading into the fog - smashing

    Chicken stuffed with black pudding and wrapped in bacon - oh yes! Poor Mr G indeed - he needs a rest - perhaps a walk in that superb valley up to the mountains in your painting. Really like this one - great use of light and delicate application to the landscape.

    Thank you. I look forward to the examples of trees. It's a big learning curve for me this Chinease painting, finding it fascinating.

    Hugs for the aftermath of mischievous pups. May I suggest empathy may be a better plan than rubbing salt in Julie's wounds, it will score you more points in the long run, who knows you might even get a better Christmas present, Santa is watching. :)

    Good morning everyone from a wet and dreary start to St Andrews day in the dark and dangerous north

    The wonder wheel of a low carb shepherds pie with roasted cauliflower greens came in at 5.2 this am

    Brand loyalty crying going on today but Philip is not green with envy. I shall just go for things well made, long lasting and without thoughts of using my body as a free advertising board. I could get into the the habit of some sort of tunic with a scapular and cowl.
    More decorations moving in stealth mode yesterday, drifting silently into the house as if the attic is not creaking under the weight of jingle all the way. Very soon it will be Vicky Leandros. singing Süßer die Glocken nie klingen.

    Not a full tree today - just the local branch. Hope you are all well, I think we have just about finished with gift collecting - some wrapping up to do and a bit of tithing for local food bank. Koffy is ready.

    All the very best of luck with any boot baiting - with hospitals filling quickly my may need to bring in some home help.
