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.

In the stable

Todays card has got to be one of my christmas staples. Whenever I look through my cds every year..I always have to print this one.I love the donkey and the puppies. I always glitter the images as well. This picture always puts me in mind of one of Henrys and my favourite christmas film. The film is a cartoon film called Annabels Wish and it tells the story of a little calf that wants to be one of Santas reindeer. In the film all the farmyard animals get their voices at midnight on Christmas eve. And this image always makes me think that they may be having a chat on Christmas Eve. Daft I know but that's the way I am. At this point I have to admit to crying my eyes out at the end of this cartoon film. Henry always took the mickey out of me..but we always made a point of watching it every christmas. And another reason to just love this christmas film is that the voice over is done by Randy Travis..a country singer and his voice alone can give me

It's still cold here in the mountains...all the cats are inside. Jeffrey and Reginald are so far in the dog house..they're nearly in the Last night they raided my stash and ate my stollen..the second one. Now I think that they have gone way too far now. Yesterday they ate their way through a stollen, 5 cherry scones and a pack of meaty chunks and the whole living room looked as if they had had a party. So last night I had put everything out of their way..or so I thought. Stupid me. I am seriously thinking of getting the two of them silly hats and making them wear them every time they're naughty. And what makes it worse is that when I get up in the morning..everyone is telling me just how hungry they are when I know that at least 2 of them are telling

I had a lovely surprise last night. A surprise visitor. My friend pretty boy came to see me. It felt as if I hadn't seen him for an age.It was great to catch up. Pretty was Henrys best friend and has always felt a part of the family. His girlfriend is lovely and is training to be a vet..bless her it's a lot of work. I shall call her the beauty, as she is. Reg finds her irresistible and doesn't leave her side when she visits. Our Reg really is a ladies man...he has a collection of special ladies who he goes all soft with. it's just so funny to see.

Well the coffee is calling and then it will be back to the dreaded I'm hoping to get all the cards for posting ready. So today will see me finishing off and bagging them all. And then I'll get to sort my own out. So until tomorrow..take care and happy crafting
