Well a bit more Shameless Showing Off from me –
and as usual
I learn another lesson.
I am loving my new bike and
I’ve been riding and riding and riding up to an hour a day.
Naturally I have to try and go faster than Mr iT for the whole hour!
So it was not a good week to stop taking the painkillers I’ve been on post surgery.
Too much riding,
and a back that is perhaps not completely healed yet
you are so right –
too much gallivanting is not good!
Siggi B comes on all my bike rides as well (count how many coats Siggi has to wear for our rides).
And this week he too has learnt a valuable lesson.
it doesn’t matter how much you resist sitting down in your bike basket
and how good your balance is,
the Human will win,
and you will end up sitting IN the basket.
Lou gets Arty.
Twice a day I walk the dodgy Brothers on the beach,
it’s part of my recovery therapy.
(Go figure walking is much harder [and more painful] for me than riding a bike).
And every walk I pick up shells on the beach here at Rainbow Bay.
I’ve got this many shells
I just been picking them up with no real purpose in mind.
Then I thought I’d sort them.
Today I was pondering what colour would be effective as a background for grey?
So I got out some kiddie watercolours
I didn’t have a good enough range of shades
so I started doing this.
Now I promise you that I have never, ever, ever, ever
painted anything in my life,
even with watercolours.
So for me –
this is pretty amazing
It’s not finished yet.
I think these metal discs in my back are affecting the artistic connections in my brain.
Earlier this week when I was having coffee
i took an “artistic” photo of a seagull on a street sign.
Am I getting a bit loopy?
lots of love
