A beautiful day with blue skies and some rather unusual cloud formations and although I still felt a little chilly and once again wore long sleeves, neighbours could be seen in short sleeves. Temperatures reached 16 today which apparently is good for this time of year. I am led to believe that although the temperatures are not as high as the mainland in the summer months, they are not as low in the winter months. There is rarely any snow or frosts. We are slowing getting the outside painted which is a wonderful sense of achievement for us both. One wall at a time...
A slow process but we are getting there. We have the two main side walls left to do but rain is forecast for tomorrow so as I say, a slow process. We will be working on the bathroom until we can get back outside. We do take plenty of breaks, taking a rest and doing a little crafting. I have made a bag for the guest bedroom for storage purchases, it looks good with the new hanger.
It was good to be able to look through the stash of fabric to find something suitable.
The art exhibition on Saturday was a joy to stroll around, there are many talented artists on the Island. It was difficult to choose a favourite they all offered something different but in the end I think due to my love of yarn/sheep this was the winner for me.
Sadly there are a lot of reflections on the pictures but I think you can see the very high standards.
This last one a tapestry, such talent. When you consider the population of Lewis/Harris 20,500 people at the last census there are a lot of very talented artistic people.
Shearing seems to be the focus of many at the moment I will get some photos shortly of them without their coats. In the meantime I happened across some black sheep on my back from town that I will leave you with today.
Aren't they a delight. We have started to countdown the sleeps until Victoria arrives with the boys, we are so excited. Have you any plans for the summer?
Once again thank you for your comments and encouragement I am really enjoying sharing my little adventures through life on this beautiful Island that we now call home.
See you soon.
