I did work on my sketchbook today, and I finished a few pages, but the majority are still being worked on, and two are totally blank. Because I chose the theme "Strange Neighbors" and such strange folks as Vincent and I are on my mind, I may be sticking too close to the theme and making the book as a whole... boring. Tomorrow, I shall concentrate on just the visuals, I think.

I know some of you have been experiencing mind-blowingly weird weather and in some cases dangerous extremes. While not to the same degree, this morning I heard on the radio we may be having winter-like temperatures this week; Jan/Feb is the hottest time of the year here, so, weird!!
This is the view I now see when I open the front door. In September, after I came home, I cleared the entire area above the retaining wall, (it goes about thrice as wide further to the left, and twice as deep as the patio, to the boundary,) including the viney weed, and dropped the rubbish down the retaining wall, until the heap was as high as the wall.
All that rubbish has flattened, some of it turning into OK compost perhaps, but the heap contains weedy bulbs and seeds, so they will be discarded. In fact, some weed grew out of it, as well as some growing back from above, and now I have a nice continuous,,, thingie! (I have more of the yellowy shrub all the way across, now partially obscured.)
