.....and in the blink of an eye it's Friday again! That week seemed to go so quickly for me - did it for you, too? It's going to be a beautiful day today, with a bit of late summer sun coming back and hanging around for the weekend. I'll be out in the garden tidying up the garden and emptying and re-doing the pots, while Grant will be cutting the grass in his never-ever-to-be-seen-in-public gardening shorts.
I've got some other reasons to be grateful too......
I LOVE it. In the style of whats-her-name in Larkrise to Candleford, "It's my one weakness." We've had the auditions, boot camp, judges houses and we're now into the finals. There's been so much hoo-ha about Katie and Gamu, and there's going to be a 'twist' - widely reported that each category will be given a wild card (that is, someone previously kicked out will be invited back). Me and my lunchtime buddy and work colleague Lyndsey have been discussing in great detail who we think should/would/will/won't/can/can't go through. I know, I know, I need to get out more, but I LOVE IT!
My darling Grant.
We had a power cut last night at bedtime. Grant was determined to read his book so he dug out his head-lamp and read. In the dark. I went to sleep!
The saga of the small knitted toys.
First there was Shapeless Bear, he was small and, well, shapeless. And he was lonely, with no knitted friends that understood him....................
So he was overjoyed when I brought home Pierre ze Bear. Together they had lots of jolly fun and played super games (usually in French, but Shapeless Bear got used to that).
But then, I brought home......
Miss *Hunny* Bunny.
She took one look at the two best friends and fell in love with Pierre ze Bear - his Continental style and accent are, after all, irresistible. And he couldn't resist her huge ears.
Poor Shapeless Bear.
On his own again.
I am on the lookout for a new friend for him. Preferably as shapeless as he. And maybe female.........
I'm really appreciating evenings in my
I'm loving the time I'm getting to spend fiddling with a pair of scissors, a gluestick, gesso, inks and various images. It clears my head of all the rubbish of the day. Grant has now bought a pair of headphones so I don't have to listen to his football/boxing/John Wayne film on the tv.
I get in the 'zone', baby.
Well, a short list today. A cherry-picking of goodies from my week.
I hope you have a great week and can cherry-pick some goodies too. How about you share them with the rest of us Rockers? You can post them with Virginia, just click on the Rocking button on my sidebar.
