Good morning, it's Sunday....

And that means it's time for Sunday Sketches over at Blue Chair Diary. I had nothing ready for today, so made a quick 5 minute sketch of me, not yet washed and combed, *fresh* out of bed and before the first cup of coffee. Was a bit difficult to take a photo, as the sun is making hard shadows this morning, but it's all I can manage!


Now, if you all feel like crawling back to bed after seeing this, don't - it could cause bad dreams!

Yesterday I got a wonderful package in the post from Narda, she's the on whose funnies we often have in my posts- She knows I love cows and everything to do with them, and has sent me a beautiful charm bracelet full of cows, to keep me company when I am lonely. She wrote *Hope it will moooooooooooove you to a herd of giggles so you can look pasture troubles each time you wear it*. Have had great probs taking a decent photo, I think the cows keep moooooving!



Oh dear, nearly forgot my tag for Simon say stamp and show, with a travel theme this week. Stamps are from scrollsworks.




Okay, that was it, Short and sweet today, I am going to go back to bed. Hope all who are affected by the storms are keeping safe! Take care, and thanks for visiting!

Good morning Valerie:0) Pretty little sketch, not scary at all LOL Narda has a great sense of humour and what a lovely gift, hope the weather is kind today and we see some sunshine, it makes everything easier.

  29. You would not want to see my expression prior to having a cup of coffee!! I forgot all about SSSS and I made a card this AM with the old jalopy for a B-day and could have entered it. Well, since I did not take a picture, guess I won't! Love this getting old and losing one's mind!
