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.

Planting Kindness

Todays card is another from the fabulous new cdrom from Joanna Sheen. There are just so many images that you could use for a whole range of different people. This card would be perfect for any gardener that you know. The only decoration I have added is a plant pot with lots of little flowers.  The plant pot is from the Signature die range from Joanna Sheen as well. I have bought quite a few of the garden themed dies from the range and have been so pleased with the results. Every die that I have bought from this range has cut beautifully no matter what type of card and the effects have been beautiful. I particularly adore the hanging basket die and will be using it in the next few you will get to see how useful it will be.

I've been lucky today that the sun has been shining again. On wheeling Reg today I had the pleasure of 5 cats with me. It was so warm that at every small piece of shade they would throw themselves onto the grass. Which is all very well until the dog trying to stop out of their way gets himself wrapped around the wheelchair and stuck.It was so funny and took quite a while to get us all free. By the time I got back to the cottage I was

It's been quite a day today. I had a visit this morning from a lovely lady from the charity Cruse Bereavement Care. It took me by surprise that I did need to talk to someone, so I put on my big girl pants and did it. And I'm glad that I did. The only problem with the whole meeting was the input of Jeffrey. He decided that she was a very nice lady and needed a present. So he bought her a shrew to play with. He did the same thing for the builder the other day. I'm afraid that Jeffrey is quite surprised by their reactions and cannot understand why people get so I'm happy to say that the shrew has been returned to the doubt it will visiting again soon.

The coffee has been drank by the bucket today and the need for another top up is calling. So until tomorrow..take care and happy crafting. And I hope that if you get any surprise presents today, that they are of the chocolate or flower variety.
