Hey there…it’s Tuesday! That’s, like, nearly Wednesday! Which is almost Friday, right? Well, maybe not, but today was a better day than I had had in some time and so I am being optimistic and forward-thinking. Nothing amazing happened – it was just a good day with friends at work (my workmates returning after a short-but-seemingly-long stint away) and some laughs. I went for a good walk after work and watched the antics of all the neighbourhood dogs in the park which never fails to put a smile on my face. They are such clowns. I saw a golden retriever outrunning a greyhound to get to a ball, a beagle becoming suddenly deaf when his owner was calling him back and a tiny terrier trying to take on a much larger dog (always a recipe for disaster!). I also “rescued” a beautiful black cat who was being dive-bombed by a feisty Willy Wagtail. The cat saw me and bolted towards me meowing pathetically and took refuge in my outstretched arms. So funny – he’d never seen me before in his life but he knew sanctuary when it walked up to him I guess!
I managed to make a couple of Christmas cards this weekend. I am so behind on my card-making this year. I’ve not done any at all in ages. But usually I get into panic mode and make a few before the situation gets too dire and I have none to sell at my Xmas craft sale. These two were ok – I like the first one the best as it came together easily and looks co-ordinated. The second one was less so but it will do. I did make a 3rd and 4th one but I’m not happy with them so I won’t show you! (so there!). I bought myself a little guillotine thingy this afternoon so I can cut with a bit more precision. How have I gotten by all these years without one? My cards will be less wonky from now on I hope!
Have you started your Christmas preparations? (If you celebrate Christmas) The count down is on! 🙂
