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 a stable

Todays card is an unusual one. It features all the baby animals around the manger. I just love the details that the artist has managed to achieve. It's hard to pick my favourite animal but the little black donkey is just so cute. The image itself is part of the nativity section that forms only a small part of the Giordano Christmas cdrom by Joanna Sheen. This cd has been one of my most used christmas cds..I can find an image for just about anyone on this cd.

Again the weather has spent all the night trying to blow the tiles off the roof. Sometimes there's nothing nicer than being in bed all warm and cosy, listening to the weather rage outside. I had 3 of the cats with me last night..Raven,Tankie and Sprout had all followed the call of the electric blanket..lolIt was hard trying to read my book around them. All of the other cats spent the night with Nicademus on my wheelchair, except for Jeffrey..who just had to be with Reg. It seems to me that everynight Reg and Jeff manage to get themselves into trouble. Last nights disgrace was that they had ripped a part a binbag that was holding a box full of shredded paper..and of course you can imagine what the parlour looked like this morning. I have been picking up tiny little pieces of paper all day and I can still see some from where I'm sat.

I have friends visiting on Monday and am very excited to say the least. I intend spending the weekend getting the kitchen tidy and hopefully getting the rest of the crates unpacked. My friend hasn't seen the kitchen since it's been done so I'm hoping that she will like it.

Well my friend the sparkle has just arrived so I'm hoping that a coffee with be forthcoming.I may get one it just depends if Jeffrey leaves him alone.At the moment Jeff is thinking that he will unpack the paper again. He's just pulled an empty cat food tin out again...I can see it's going to be one of those days with I'd better go and sort him until tomorrow..take care and happy crafting
