Coming down out of the freezing sky with its depths of light, like an angel, or a Buddha with wings, it was beautiful, and accurate, striking the snow and whatever was there with a force that left the imprint of the tips of its wings — five feet apart — and the grabbing thrust of its feet, and the indentation of what had been running through the white valleys of the snow — and then it rose, gracefully, and flew back to the frozen marshes to lurk there, like a little lighthouse, in the blue shadows — so I thought: maybe death isn’t darkness, after all, but so much light wrapping itself around us — as soft as feathers — that we are instantly weary of looking, and looking, and shut our eyes, not without amazement, and let ourselves be carried, as through the translucence of mica, to the river that is without the least dapple or shadow, that is nothing but light — scalding, aortal light — in which we are washed and washed out of our bones.

Rabbits in the snow

Todays card is from Squeezee Cards cdrom...Christmas Furry friends. I love this image and this cd contains some wonderful wildlife images. I of course had to add some glitter...I do so love a twinkle. The backing paper is from my stash.
Well today is definately a good day. The coffee arrived first thing and a mug sits by my side as I speak. And I can tell's needed. The weather here has turned really cold. So cold in fact that I may have to close the biggest cat flap in the world. As my chair sits by the window (cat flap), I get the full benefit of the cold snap. I wonder what the council knows that we don't because early this morning they were round topping up the grit bins. But I also don't know how much sense they have as there are holes in the lid of the bin and the rain gets when we have a bad freeze and need the is frozen solid!! Only in Snowdonia!
The cats are in and out today. They of course arrived back at the house the minute that the shopping arrived. They obviously needed to check that the cat food had arrived. As you know most of my cats are rescued and have many problems associated with this...all except Jeff. He was a normal tiny kitten brought to me on my birthday. He just needed a good home. It has been so strange watching him develop just because he had no problems. I think he is determined to be a He is only 6 months old and is now as large as my grown cats. He is already going through a whole tin of cat food per day plus biscuits and treats. He does have a funny way though..he thinks that he is superman...he can only jump with his front legs straight out front and his mouth wide open. It is so funny..I will have to take a photo and post it on here. As I'm trying to write this one of my black cats is determined to sit on the computer..they always want the attention.
So what for today..first finish some challenge cards and then more christmas cards. I like to get all my orders out by the middle of November. Usually because as soon as my customers receive them, they always remember another couple they The thought of christmas is making me a bit nervous at the moment. All the prices are up and my money will only stretch so I'll have to make a list and make a plan and see where we get. I hope that you are having a good until tommorrow...take care and happy crafting.
