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.

Country Cottage

This lovely cottage image is from the Halcyon Days cdrom from Crafters Companion. I have been working my way through this cd finding lots of ideas and inspiration along the way. I love this image of a cottage ..what a great new home card it would make..but what about printing it onto printable cotton and putting it onto a cushion. I may be doing that myself once I have my house back to normal.

At the moment I'm having my kitchen ceiling, new walls, new floor,,new door and new stairs wall. Everything kitchen based is in crates because it's the easiest way to move things about. The poor builder has to put up with Jeffrey. He has already been brought a shrew to play with..when he was on the scaffold tower and today was gifted a mouse. What more appreciation could a man Jeffrey is just so nosy and spends his days watching what is going on in the kitchen. I'm sure he's just hoping that he will be given access to the fridge. And I'm so excited..I have new kitchen I know that you're probably thinking just how exciting could that be...come on..but I'm really chuffed with them. They are really old fashioned looking..with a cross turning mechanism on the top. The old taps had really given up and they just didn't want to turn on or off without trouble. They have driven me mad for months. But I think my new ones are terribly sexy in a old fashioned country kitchen sort of way. I think that they will really show the sink up project..maybe next year though.

I was lucky today..when I took Reg for a wheel..the weather was fabulous. We had 3 cats with us..Jeff, Rave and Tank. We were joined by the neighbours cat which I found out is called Bilbo. I had to laugh..they were all throwing themselves onto the road and rolling about wanting their bellies tickled. Such is the way of cats. There is another cat lurking on the edge of our group and he may join us soon too. We seem to attracting quite a crowd on our little I always count being able to take Reg out as one of my daily Billy Connelly says there is no bad weather..just the wrong Even when it's pouring down.. I'm still thankful for my wheels..a little adventure every day.

Well the coffee is past's screaming..but there will be some a cup of tea is needed. So until tomorrow..take care and happy crafting
