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.

Christmas music

Todays card is a design team make for the fabulous team over at JB-Crafting Supplies. It uses a Joanna Sheen stamp from the favourite flowers I have given the stamped image a soft feel by using my watercolour pencils. I stamped,coloured and added them to a backing paper from my stash. Both the main image and the backing paper have been mounted onto some gold mirri. I have of course had to add a little fine glitter.

Well what a day it's been today. I was up at a ridiculous time and hoped to get loads done and I have and now I'm worn out. I had a meat delivery today..just chicken and minced beef for the freezer. I got a really good deal on 5kg of chicken and 8lb of mince. It is now in the freezer waiting to be made into meatballs, ragu sauce and anything else I can come up with. It maybe chicken and mushroom pie for dinner tonight. Well at first I put all the meat into portions and put it into the freezer and then I decided to unpack some of the kitchen..finally. I now have a working worktop. The microwave, the kenwood, the food processor and the slow cooker are all now in place. I managed to unpack 4 crates of stuff but still have about 6 to go. But I've definitely done enough for today. My legs don't want to move at the I've put them up and intend to stay here until it's time to make dinner. A painkiller may be needed to help with the

Because of all this I'm so late blogging. The light in the valley is not great and I've had to try lots of different areas to try and get a little better light. Some days it's just like that.I think all the cats hate me today. When I was in the kitchen working..they of course all wanted to help and did nothing but get in the way of the wheelchair. They seemed to like sitting under it and then complaining every time I moved. There is plenty of room round the kitchen but you would never know it if you saw them playing about. As soon as I wiped a piece of of them would jump on it. There was a lot of shouting in the kitchen's the latin in me. I make a lot f noise..but really I'm just full of hot And you could do with lots of that here's freezing here. I've got my blanket on my legs and of course I have a Raven on my knee.

Well the coffee is calling as well as the pain killer. I hope all your christmas preparations are going well. I've just managed to get my orders out and have realised that I haven't any cards left for So I'll have to get my working head on. So until tomorrow..take care and happy crafting
