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.

JB-Crafting Supplies...Stylish ladies

Todays card is a design team make for the wonderful JB-Crafting Supplies. It comes from Janet Kruskamp..The Collection, brought to us by Joanna Sheen. I just love this image and can think of so many friends that I could send this card to. The background paper is from my stash...I just loved the muted colour ways on the image. If there is anything you need crafting wise..pop over and speak to Julie at JB-Crafting Supplies...she really does have an Aladdins cave of fabulous crafting goodies.

I'm amazed that I have managed to blog at all today...thanks to BT. I've been trying since 8 a.m. to get to blog and the hub went even further than flashing on and off just went off altogether. The computer was getting closer and closer to the was driving me mad. Fingers crossed..I will be able to publish this any time soon. And you can't even blame the weather..the sun is shining and there isn't even a cloud in the sky. All the cats are on the studio roof..all stretched out enjoying the sunshine. Jeffrey looks like the walking wounded..yet another fight with Hobo. Hobo left the scene in rather a hurry...being chased by all the girls. Unusual as it is, he is a tom that attacks female cats...but only one at a time. The girls have obviously thought out a strategy..they all rush at him and he can't cope...hurrah for the girls. At the moment, they are all lay around Jeff..Hobo won't be getting to him anytime soon.

It was a crazy type of of those when you think that you haven't stopped but seem to have achieved nothing. I do accept that I have lots of things going round my head as the inquest draws nearer. I know it's a hard time coming closer and I often find myself sitting in my chair in the middle of the night feeling very alone. I just need to get my head together and count my blessings.

Well the coffee is calling and then it will be time to think about dinner. I have no idea what I'm going to cook. We had fish pie last night and it was lovely. It could be a simple tea tonight..perhaps beef burgers and chips...something that we don't have very often. It's shopping day lots of fresh salad will be coming..I love it. I've found Sainsburys salad has been lasting a long time longer than Asda and Tesco..and I have to say that the prices have really surprised me. I love the fact that I can have my groceries means that I don't have to rely on asking any of my friends and can take my time deciding what I want. So until tomorrow...take care and happy crafting
