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.

Time for tea

Todays card is from a Joanna Sheen cd..and I have to admit..I can't remember which one. Never before has my mind thrown me such a It is I think from Janet Kruskamp..The Collection. I promise that I will check later. I said to Sparkle this morning, I think that I'm all carded out this morning. The past week has been hectic, and I feel quite worn out. But I'm sure that with a bit of slow crafting this afternoon..I'll get back to normal.At least I hope The fan at the bottom of the card is a diecut from the Signature Range from Joanna Sheen. I just love the Signature die range..they just cut so well. I resent paying my hard earned money on a fabulous looking die that doesn't cut cleanly. You then telephone the company and they try to tell you that it must be the way that you're using it, you need waxed paper, you need to use far as I'm concerned at this point they've just lost a customer. I have never had any problem with any of Joannas dies..they have always cut cleanly the first time and have continued to cut cleanly after many many uses.

At the moment the weather in the mountains is calm with the occasional gust of wind. The weather man has said that tonight is supposed to be horrible with raging winds and rain. I've took the decision not to let the cats out today. If the weather is going to be so bad, then I'd sooner know that they're all safe. I don't think that they look too bothered..they've all got into their own special places and don't look like they want to move. Tankie and Sprout are on the bed, Obie and Nicodemus are in the airing cupboard, Milky is on the fridge and Jeffrey is of course on top of Raven is on my's so cool having a leg warmer that never goes cold.

Well the coffee is calling and I think that after a good dose of caffeine,I maybe halfway back to I think sometimes I could do with caffeine on drip. I'm only organised as far as dinner tonight. I'm going to do fried chicken with jacket potatoes..I may make some coleslaw if I can find some mayonnaise at the back of the fridge. I'm going some time today planning the meals for the next week, just so I don't end up in the week with a blank least I will have an idea what to So until tomorrow..take care and happy crafting.
