Day 313

Yesterday morning hubby got up in the roof to do what he could for the leaks. We had a rain heavy day forecast. It was a success. He plugged the holes enough, placed some buckets strategically and we didn’t see a drip or wet patch on the ceiling all day. It was lucky, we ended up getting 100 mm of rain.

During the night the weather didn’t ease up, it got worse. In some parts of New South Wales it was the worst storms they’ve had in 30 years. There were very strong winds and another 70 mm of rain for us. Luckily we had no flooding. We did lose one of the trees in the back yard though.

The frangipani plants survived the night okay, although some flowers did fall off.

We put the fallen flowers into a glass of water. It’s made the living room smell lovely.

It was a pretty humid day (thanks to all the rain) so I didn’t really get a lot done. I doodled and I Puddled.

My 10 minute doodle was inspired by the letter ‘E’. I had an idea for an Easter Egg. It didn’t really turn out how I thought it would.

In today‚Äôs Adventures of Arthur Puddles we find him singing in the….sun with his umbrella for National Umbrella Day. He’s enjoying being outside now the rain has passed.

Hubby is back to work tomorrow and I’m going to have an art and learning filled week. I was pretty happy with how many watercolour practices I did last week, so I’ll aim for more this week.

I hope your week is filled with creativity, productivity and all the things that make you smile. You should smile more, it looks good on you. Take care.
