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.

Shower time

Todays card features this lovely image from the House Mouse collection. I don't mind if it's House Mouse, a Gruffie or a Happy Hopper...I love them all. There is a current challenge over at the Gruffies and guests challenge blog and this was one I made for it. The theme is Lavender and Lace and is running all this month..why not pop over and join in the fun. I had a great time looking through all the images and deciding which one to use. In my collection of cds I have the Triple House Mouse cdrom, The House Mouse Decoupage cdrom and the Gruffies and Happy Hoppers cdrom. I found this image on the triple and decided that it would fit the theme. The border that I created came along because I was remembering an Austrian blind that my friend used to have in her bathroom. It was made out of white lace and was covered in bows. It was way over the top...even for I created this border as a homage to the 80's.

The sun is still shining, here in the mountains today. I did listen to the weather forecast today and it did say that we may have thunderstorms we will have to wait and see. Jeffrey is outside at the moment..if the thunder comes, he will be home before you can blink. He just hates the noise. None of the other cats are bothered about thunder..only my big baby boy. He is now the biggest cat in the house and bless him..he really is the baby of the house. All the girls stick up for's so funny when he's having a bit of bother and they all run to him to offer their help. It's the 3 sisters..Rave, Tankie and Milky that are the A team in this house. Rave is actually now the top cat. She has something to say on most things and appears at the strangest moments. The funniest is when you should hope to have a packet of crisps in peace...well you have no hope. Should Rave hear a packet being opened..she's there. Her favourite are cheese and onion. Her all time favourite is Wotsits. She can eat them quicker than any human, as the husband of my friend the pa can attest.

Well the coffe is calling and then I need to get myself together and get some work done. I have some housework to do at some time because I have a friend calling tomorrow afternoon. I do know that I have some glittering to do today. No doubt Reg will be sparkling So until tomorrow..take care and happy crafting.
