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.

Ginger has arrived

Let me introduce you to Ginger. She is another digital design from the very talented Adele at Jiggery Makery.I love these sassy ladies. Please excuse the photo today..the light in the valley has disappeared and I've tried about 20 times and this about the best. I really enjoyed making this card though.The plant pots,and foliage are die cut and I have coloured the diecuts and Ginger with my copics. How I wish I had legs like The backing paper is from my stash and is I think from a Joanna Sheen cd rom.

As you will appreciate I am sitting here watching the athletics and enjoying every minute. I've got lots of design work for over the weekend. At some point in the next week, I'm going to have to sort my working area out. Everything just gets piled around me and I get to the point that I can't more anything without a pile falling over..I am at that point It's my plan to sort it all day next week. I'm going to miss a day next week on the blog because I have to go to hospital on Tuesday. I'm am,azed that this appointment hasn't been cancelled. This is about the sixth appointment I've had..the hospital has kept cancelling them...but it looks like this one may happen. Keep your fingers crossed for me..they even work out what the matter is, what is causing this extra pain.

I took Reg for a wheel today and we had 4 black cats with us.It was dry but kept threatening to rain.We were dripped on a couple of times but managed to get back dry. The cats were so funny today..they were all walking at the side of the chair and meowing all the way. They all had a lot to say today. Somedays it seems as if they are my little minders and they encourage me the whole way. Due to the number of cars parked at the side of the road, to get to the grass I had to go along the middle of the road which is a nightmare. The camber on the road is so steep it wants to carry you to the left towards the river, so you are fighting it all the way. No wonder that Reg thinks he's turning into a husky..when he pulls towards the grass. I've told everyone that if they ever see Reg standing by the river..follow his lead..I'll be in the river. The camber is so steep that if ever I ended up going down that road, I wouldn't be able to it would definately involve a lot of

Well the coffee is calling and so is a scone.I hope that you all have a good weekend and that the weather is kind to you. So until tomorrow..take care and happy crafting
