The weekend is almost over as I write this, so I wish you all a good start in the new week.
For Art Journal Journey, winter wonderland, I have another hybrid page, combining photos and fantasy. The quote is by Wordsworth; my Auntie used to read this poem to me when I was a child, and I found it very sad and scary that poor Lucy Gray had to go out in bad weather, and never, ever came back! The girl here is from the Graphics Fairy.
I received some nice Happy Mail this week.
Chrissie sent this beautiful card, with a lovely, colourful cat to wish me all the best for my OP last Thursday:
And from Donna in Canada I received a parcel of goodies to keep me occupied when I go into hospital next month. This is a card made from one of her gorgeous sheep paintings:
And some occupational therapy, lots of pictures to colour when I am stuck in bed:
And Sudoku puzzles to keep my brain ticking, all packed into this fun, decorated envelope! Yes, my old knee will be going out, and a shiny, new one being put in:
And a cookery book with wonderful recipes to cook in my slow cooker when I get back home again .
Thanks so much ladies, it's good to know others are thinking of me.
Thanks too to those who mailed and sent me encouragement, which was much appreciated.
The Heron was really getting into a flap yesterday, he was busy fishing, and the gulls kept circling round him, probably trying to steal his dinner.
Here he swooped onto a fish and swallowed it straightaway:
The gulls kept on mobbing him, and in the end he took off - followed by a cloud of gulls....
Have a great day you all, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
