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.

Floral Handbag

Well here I am back again..thank goodness. I was all ready to post yesterday and then I became so ill I had no option than to take to my bed...rather like a victorian maiden lounging on her chaise..but with me it was a case of a whinging ball of pain returning to her cave with her ever faithful hound. Yes I ended up in bed for the afternoon with Reg. I haven't been ill like that for a few months so it was a bit of a shock. I think it was just a case of everything getting a bit much for me..solicitors,coraners,social services,ex partners and missing was just too much I think. But I'm glad to say I feel so much better today..I've evn managed to wash out the fridge and hoover the parlour. I have to add that before I can hoover the parlour I had to go round with a dustpan and brush..thanks to Reg and his memory foam fetish. I had thought that I had removed it all but he keeps finding more and spreading it round the

Todays card is shaped as a handbag. I made the bag using one of the glitter girls boards.I added flowers designed by Adele at Jiggery Makery. I coloured them using my copics. The foliage was made using a die from Tattered Lace. The bag is made so it opens so there is a good space to write your greeting.

The weather here today doesn't know what to do with itself. I took Reg out for a wheeland the sun was shining and it was pouring down. I got thoroughly wet and Reg enjoyed every minute of it. He doesn't mind the rain at all and skips along. The hardest thing is when he thinks that he should walk in front of me..directly in front of me and the chair. I end up kicking him up the bum at every step or rather..every turn of the wheel. Sometimes I think he thinks that he is a Husky and should be in At this very moment Reg and Jeff are in the dog basket in disgrace...while I was cleaning the fridge..they decided to help themselves to the dog treats..I returned to the parlour to find the two of them tucking in...and enjoying every minute. I'm also being helped to type this by Raven...she likes to sit on my chest while I am typing..which doesn't help because I can't see what I'm typing.

Well the coffee is calling..and thank the stars..I have more coming later. I really need to keep my caffeine levels up. So until tomorrow take care and happy crafting
